Nutanix Self Service Portal (SSP) released with Nutanix AOS 5.0.
This demo walks through how you may integrate with Service Now Cloud provisioning to enable your business users to perform virtual provisioning onto Nutanix AHV hypervisor through Service Now, leveraging the financial and business process integrations in ServiceNow while using the Self Service portal to perform typical day-2 operations for your business users.
Nutanix Self-Service: One of the core capabilities that developers and business users love in the public cloud is the ability to provision applications and virtual machines without the intervention of IT. Nutanix Self-Service is designed to bring this simplicity to enterprise clouds, so that users can deploy applications at any point in time based on policies set by IT administrators.
Admins can create a catalog of projects and assign users (through AD/LDAP integration) and resources (storage, compute, and network) to these projects. Line-of-business users/developers can then login with their credentials, and based on what they have access to, will see these projects and resources. This will radically simplify application development and delivery, as well as bring a lot of automation to the process. The screenshot below from the user view of the portal shows the VM images that the admin has given access to for a specific user. The user can pick one of these images and can deploy it anytime.
