Hyperconverged infrastructure (HCI)

What is Hyperconverged infrastructure?
Hyperconverged infrastructure combines servers and storage into a distributed infrastructure platform with intelligent software to create flexible building blocks that replace legacy infrastructure consisting of separate servers, storage networks, and storage arrays.

What problem is the solution solving?
In the era of hybrid cloud, traditional 3-tier infrastructure can no longer keep up with IT needs. It’s complex, unwieldy, doesn’t provide a firm foundation for DevOps, and can’t scale with the magnitude it used to. Instead, HCI is the infrastructure of choice for companies that want to stay competitive and ensure their datacentres are Cloud ready.

Key product features
• HCI converges the entire datacentre stack, including compute, storage, storage networking, and virtualization.
• Complex and expensive legacy infrastructure is replaced by a distributed platform running on industry-standard commodity servers that enables enterprises to size their workloads precisely and to scale flexibly as needed.
• Each server, also known as a node, includes x86 processors with SSDs and HDDs.
• Software running on each node distributes all operating functions across the cluster for superior performance and resilience.
• Hardware platform configurations are available to fit any workload by independently scaling the various resources (CPU, RAM, and Storage) and can be provisioned with or without GPU for graphics acceleration.

Key benefits
• Turnkey Infrastructure – Integrated server, storage, networking, and virtualization resources along with end-to-end systems management and operations management capabilities.
• Fast Deployment – Deploy infrastructure in minutes, so IT teams can elevate their focus to the applications and services powering the business.
• 100% Software-Driven – Supports a wide variety of different hardware platforms – including three of the four most popular server platforms in the world.
• Freedom of Choice – Use built-in virtualization or bring your preferred hypervisor and deploy on a wide selection of server vendors or buy a pre-integrated appliance from an OEM.
• Superior Performance and Resilience – Nutanix hyperconverged software running on each node distributes all operating functions across the cluster.
• Unprecedented Flexibility – A single cluster can have unlimited nodes, with node types having differing amounts of storage, CPU, and memory resources, so you can run multiple workloads with maximum efficiency.

FLOW: Microsegmentation is mega secure


Nutanix Flow

Nutanix Flow delivers advanced network security, providing visibility into the virtual network, application-centric protection from network threats, malware, and ransomware and security and compliance monitoring.

Flow allows organisations to deploy software-defined virtual network security without the complexity of installing and managing additional products that have separate management and independent software maintenance requirements.

Fully integrated into the Nutanix private cloud solution and Nutanix AHV virtualisation, Nutanix Flow differs from traditional perimeter firewalls by allowing network policy to be attached to VMs and applications, rather than specific network segments (e.g., VLANS) or identifiers (IP addresses). Through centralised management from Prism, policies are auto-updated throughout the VM lifecycle, removing the burdens of change management.

Key Functions:

  • VM Microsegmentation
  • Application Visualisation
  • Service Chaining
  • Policy-based Control
  • Identity Based Policy
  • Network Traffic Monitoring
  • Compliance Audit and Reporting
