Nutanix is an enterprise storage company.The Nutanix Virtual Computing Platform converges compute and storage into a single system, eliminating the need for traditional storage arrays. Each Nutanix node runs an industry-standard hypervisor and a Nutanix controller VM, which handles all I/O operations for the local hypervisor. Storage resources are exposed to the hypervisor through traditional interfaces, and are pooled and made available to all VMs. The convergence of compute and storage into a single appliance provides a flexible, scalable building block for the modern datacenter.
Nutanix has announced added security capabilities for its Virtual Computing Platform, including a number of additional certifications and security features, such as data-at-rest encryption. These capabilities augment the company’s Security Development Lifecycle (SecDL), which embeds security into every step of the software development process. Businesses that manage sensitive customer data and business information, such as government […]
