Nutanix Introduces Cloud Native Solutions for Enterprises

Sponsored by Businesswire

Inc. (NASDAQ: NTNX), a leader in enterprise cloud computing, today
announced the general availability of its Certified Kubernetes solution,
Nutanix Karbon. Karbon is part of the Nutanix Cloud Native stack,
bringing production-ready Kubernetes, persistence for Kubernetes
applications, observability and monitoring for dynamic containers, and
managed databases in one simple to deploy and manage offering. With this
introduction, Nutanix customers will be able to leverage reliable,
automated, secure and efficient services together with the Nutanix
Enterprise Cloud Platform to develop and run both their virtual machine
and container-based applications on-premises.

According to IDC, the container infrastructure software market is
forecasted to grow from $131.1 million in 2017 to $1.55 billion in 2022,
with most of the growth coming from on-premises deployments. Though much
of the adoption to date has been with web-scale companies, it is now
beginning to expand into enterprises. “Enterprises are just beginning to
learn the technologies and change how they approach development and
operations. Most enterprises are in research and experimentation mode,
with only a very small elite segment having any real experience or
deployments of containers today.” 1

Through Nutanix’s Cloud Native offerings, companies will be able to take
advantage of simple, reliable on-prem tooling and automation required
for fast development and continuous integration and continuous delivery
(CI/CD) of scale-out applications for a cloud-like Kubernetes experience
on-prem. This includes simple and fast deployment of Kubernetes in a
private cloud, persistent block and file storage via CSI driver,
observability for their cloud-native applications and, once available,
S3-compatible storage — all delivered with modern simplicity using the
Nutanix Enterprise Cloud Platform that includes:

  • Nutanix Karbon: A simplified and production-ready Certified
    Kubernetes distribution that simplifies the provisioning, operations
    and lifecycle management of Kubernetes with a native experience.
    Karbon is included in the Nutanix Enterprise Cloud Platform.
  • Nutanix Volumes & Files: One of the more challenging
    aspects of cloud native applications is persistence. With Nutanix’s
    Container Storage Interface (CSI) and Volumes & Files products, adding
    high-performance storage to Kubernetes is simplified.
  • Nutanix Buckets: A software-defined object storage solution
    that will be able to non-disruptively scale-out while lowering overall
    costs. It’s designed with an S3-compatible REST API interface to
    handle from terabytes to petabytes of unstructured data. Customers
    using Buckets will be able to natively leverage erasure coding,
    compression, and deduplication to optimize their capacity utilization.
    This S3-compatible platform will be able to be leveraged as central
    storage for all DevOps use-cases. Buckets is expected to be generally
    available by summer of 2019.
  • Nutanix Xi Epoch: An observability and monitoring service for
    cloud native applications that provides end-to-end real-time
    visibility into distributed application architecture, powered by 250+
    technology native integrations. With Xi Epoch, customers gain insights
    into application, infrastructure, and orchestration management issues,
    enabling them to increase the reliability and performance of their
    Cloud Native applications.
  • Nutanix Era: A database administration tool that brings
    simplicity and invisible operations to database provisioning and
    lifecycle management (LCM). With one-click database provisioning and
    Copy Data Management (CDM) as its first services, organizations can
    provision, clone, refresh, and backup their databases to any point in
    time in just a few minutes.

“Enterprises want to take advantage of Kubernetes to modernize their
applications and increase the speed of software development. With Karbon
they can now deploy and operate Kubernetes with a cloud-like experience
in their private data center without having to master building and
maintaining Kubernetes,” said Greg Muscarella, vice president, products
at Nutanix. “Nutanix’s full cloud native stack will be able to provide a
simple and quick way to deploy highly available Kubernetes clusters with
the persistent storage, enterprise grade data services, object storage,
and observability and monitoring that today’s enterprises need.”

“Leveraging Nutanix Karbon, we can deploy a Kubernetes cluster in just a
few minutes,” said Zach Hilliard, Senior Director of SREs at Cyxtera.
“Prior to Karbon, this process was complex, tedious and very
time-consuming. Now, we can focus more on our cloud native applications
and not worry about the Kubernetes infrastructure.”
