RoundTower, in collaboration with Nutanix, wrote the book on hyperconverged, The Nutanix Design Guide, shining a light on the three stages of the enterprise cloud journey while providing a 40,000-foot view of the Nutanix Enterprise Cloud eco-system.
The CEO and Co-Founder of Nutanix, Dheeraj Pandey, wrote the Foreword of The Nutanix Design Guide, while Nutanix Technology Champion Community Manager, Angelo Luciani, in collaboration with RoundTower’s Master Architect and Strategist, René van den Bedem, edited and co-authored more than a third of the first edition. Fifteen other ‘Nutants’, including six NPXs, contributed to the completion of the guide. This book has something for everyone, from the most experienced Nutant, to those who have just been introduced to Nutanix.
The Three Stages of the Enterprise Cloud Journey
The Nutanix Design Guide is broken down into three phases of the Cloud Journey:
- Modernize your Infrastructure: with a hyperconverged architecture.
- Build your Private Cloud: with automation and an entirely software-defined infrastructure.
- Simplify your Multi-Cloud: with governance, application mobility, and location-agnostic services.
This book has been written to provide a consolidated view of the Nutanix Enterprise Cloud eco-system. It primarily focuses on the “Why” of Nutanix. The references section found at the end of each chapter contains links to resources that explain the “What” and “How” of Nutanix. Each chapter is designed to be read as a standalone artifact. And regardless of the reader’s familiarity with Nutanix, there should be something for everyone. Nutanix has the intent of renewing and updating this publication each year, to include the latest products and enhancements of the Nutanix Enterprise Cloud.
