"As organizations grapple with digital transformation and the move to a true hybrid cloud, they are looking for solutions to help them on this journey. The key capabilities needed to address their challenges are simplicity and uniformity across all deployment locations and across multiple clouds,” said Eric Burgener, research vice president, Infrastructure Systems, Platforms and Technologies Group, IDC.
With the addition of Objects and Files capability into its unstructured data storage offerings, Nutanix says these will enable customers to deploy an easy-to-use, scale out storage fabric across their different cloud environments to simplify data management and effectively manage costs - moving IT teams ever closer to a true hybrid cloud operating model.
The enhancements come after the launch of the Nutanix Clusters, which supports Nutanix’s hyperconverged infrastructure software running in AWS and, in the future, Microsoft Azure. The company continues to enable its technology to run in any cloud, while embracing a common operating model to streamline IT management and provide organizations the flexibility to run every application in the cloud of their choice.
“IT teams around the world, including Hong Kong, are quickly moving to hybrid environments and they’re looking for technology solutions to help them facilitate this transition, to help them manage disparate technologies and simplify operations,” said Edward Yeung, managing director of Nutanix Hong Kong and Taiwan.
He commented that following the Nutanix Cluster launch, the focus is now on strengthening the overall platform, including delivering an easy-to-use, scale out storage fabric across their different cloud environments, in order to support Hong Kong businesses to fully prepare for the challenges in 2021.
“A solution that can provide a single unified experience for data access wherever it lives, like what Nutanix now delivers with Files and Objects, will be the right choice for many organizations," said IDC’s Burgener.
