Nutanix Era 2.2 database as a service (DBaaS) automates and simplifies database administration, bringing one-click simplicity and invisible operations to database provisioning and life-cycle management.
Era enables database administrators to perform operations such as database registration, provisioning, cloning, patching, and restore. It allows administrators to define provisioning standards with end-state driven functionality that includes network segmentation, High Availability (HA) database deployments, and much more.
On public, private, or hybrid clouds, Era 2.2 enables database management on your terms. By providing simple, fast, consistent management from a single control plane, Era dramatically improves uptime, reduces tedious manual operations, and increases cost efficiency. The future of one-click simplicity across clouds and clusters is here. It’s a new Era.
With Era 2.2 multi-cluster you can easily manage databases across multiple locations, both on-prem and in the cloud, with Nutanix clusters.
