Nutanix rolls out hybrid cloud infrastructure for AWS

Firm claims the move will accelerate digital initiatives and optimise spending for businesses

Nutanix has announced the general availability of Nutanix Clusters on Amazon Web Services (AWS) with the aim to expand the use of its hyperconverged infrastructure (HCI) software to the public cloud.

According to the company, rolling out its infrastructure to AWS will accelerate digital initiatives and optimise spending, which are some of the most significant priorities for businesses during the coronavirus pandemic.

Nutanix will offer a single stack capable of integrating compute and storage, as well as provide unified operations and license portability across private and public clouds.

The company  outlined the key features of its Nutanix Clusters, such as apps and data mobility, optimisation of cloud investments, and a built-in networking integration with AWS.

The software will  allow users to create, manage, and orchestrate their infrastructure and applications across private and public clouds using a single interface, and customers will also have the choice to either reuse existing on-premises hardware or AWS credits when building out a hybrid environment.

They will also be able to choose between bringing the on-premises licenses or selecting a pay-as-you-go or Cloud Commit models.

Doug Yeum, head of Worldwide Channels and Alliances at AWS, said that this will provide users with "the flexibility to get the most out of both their AWS and Nutanix environments".

"Customers now have an opportunity to take advantage of Nutanix Clusters on AWS to deploy adjacent to their cloud-native applications in AWS and fast track their digital transformation," he added.

Nutanix CCO Tarkan Maner said that the rollout will enable "complete flexibility by allowing businesses to write code once and use it anywhere, taking advantage of scale, location, integration, and pricing of multiple options - this is the true vision of hybrid cloud".

"As the industry evolved, our focus has expanded beyond the data centre to help our customers manage the complexity of multiple clouds, whether private or public. Nutanix Clusters on AWS is the realisation of this vision," he said.

The launch comes a week after a number of announcements from AWS. Earlier this month, the cloud giant announced a partnership with financial tech firm Global Payments as well as named digital engineering services provider Infostretch as a new advanced consulting partner in its Partner Network.
