Why partner with Vohkus for Nutanix?
Virtualised data centres rely on decade-old designs that have become expensive and inflexible. This typically consists of commodity servers for compute and memory resources, and proprietary storage arrays to retain the physical data. Both use x86 technology but live on separate islands bridged by legacy fabrics, e.g. fibre channel that are not well suited for todays virtualised applications.
Today’s virtualised servers are often throttled by insufficient memory and storage I/O, consequently leaving excess processing capacity to spare. This wasted processor capacity is an opportunity to rethink how virtualised data centres are designed, especially when considering that most modern enterprise storage products use the same x86 processors as those in virtualised hosts.
The Nutanix Complete Cluster merges enterprise class storage with x86 servers into one hardware tier to deliver a single high performance building block for enterprise virtualisation. The elimination of traditional SAN/NAS hardware, by embedding the storage intelligence directly onto the hypervisor hardware, combined with Fusion-io Memory delivers up to 10x performance gains over traditional approaches, with a fraction of the footprint and power requirements.
A Nutanix Complete Cluster can start at three nodes and then scale to hundreds, enabling a grow as you go platform for enterprise customers to scale out their virtualisation infrastructure, without the complexity of integrating separate compute and storage technologies.
In support of green data centre initiatives, Nutanix-based VDI can realise up to a 70% reduction in kilowatts consumed to support the desktop infrastructure.
