Nutanix follows up their certification on SAP HANA non-production environments in June with the expected – but still very important – announcement that they have now been certified for SAP HANA production environments as well.
HYCU strengthens its case to be perceived as a one-stop shop for data protection within Nutanix environments, by adding an integration with VMware VADP that enhances HYCU’s protection of VMware data in those environments.
The two new models include the first quad-processor environments for Nutanix environments, and a new edge appliance that can be as small as 1U. The new Life Cycle Management capability may, however, be what excites customers most about the new announcements.
Nutanix is making three major announcements at their event – Nutanix Flow, Nutanix Beam and Nutanix Era – which are directed to expanding their high-level vision above HCI of making life easy for customers in a multi-cloud world.
The plan is to enhance the organically-developed Nutanix Flow later this year by integrating technology from the Netsil acquisition, which will add a critical cloud element by facilitating application visibility across multiple clouds.
Nutanix also announced a pair of incents, one of which is explicitly around XC Core sales, and the other, covering all Nutanix sales, introduces a five per cent rebate for bringing new customers to Nutanix.
The provision of new object storage, compute and marketplace services to developers is part of a continuing Nutanix strategy to elevate itself from providing HCI infrastructure to providing the whole stack.
