Nutanix Enterprise Cloud on PRIMERGY

Fujitsu Nutanix Enterprise Cloud Virtualisation Solution

Fujitsu’s Nutanix Enterprise Cloud on PRIMERGY is a turnkey integrated system that includes all the hardware and software to simplify deployment across a range of choices from private, public and edge cloud infrastructure. It combines high performance, energy efficient Fujitsu PRIMERGY standard x86 servers and the software-defined server and storage technology combined in the Nutanix Acropolis cloud OS and Prism management suite to reduce complexity and TCO in a multi-cloud infrastructure environment.Nutanix Enterprise Cloud

Nutanix and Fujitsu converge the entire data centre stack including compute, storage, storage networking, and virtualisation. Complex and expensive legacy infrastructure is replaced by simple 1U and 2U PRIMERGY server-based appliances that enable enterprises to start small and scale one node at a time. Each server, also known as a node, includes Intel-powered x86 hardware with flash SSDs and HDDs.  Nutanix software running on each node distributes all operating functions across the cluster for superior performance and resilience.

Nutanix Enterprise Cloud on PRIMERGY provides support for industry-leading hypervisors, including the built-in Nutanix AHV hypervisor in combination with high speed flash disk devices and high throughput, low-latency networking technology. You can therefore set up a high performance, responsive virtual IT infrastructure that provides consistent IOPS with sub-millisecond response times. In all flash or hybrid disk configurations, Nutanix Enterprise Cloud on PRIMERGY easily exceeds 250,000 IO Operations per Second (IOPS).

Digital business demands are outpacing IT‘s ability to deliver at the speed required by the business, particularly when the data centre is hardware-defined and limited to an on-premises silo. IT infrastructures based on a multi-cloud, Software-Defined Data Center architecture (SDDC) deliver greater responsiveness and agility into IT, creating a next generation data centre foundation that’s more cost-efficient, resilient, and adaptable to changing business scenarios.

Nutanix Enterprise Cloud on PRIMERGY is a multi-cloud, multi-hypervisor platform that includes all the hardware and software to simplify procurement and deployment by using hyper-converged building blocks. It leverages high performance, energy-efficient Fujitsu PRIMERGY standard x86 servers and the software-defined compute, virtualisation and storage technology in the Nutanix Acropolis cloud OS, Prism management and Calm orchestration. The result is reduced complexity and vastly superior TCO from this multi-cloud infrastructure environment.

IT Crossroads

Legacy infrastructure—with separate storage, storage networks, and servers—is not well suited to meet the growing demands of enterprise applications or the fast pace of modern business. The
silos created by traditional infrastructure have become a barrier to change and progress, adding complexity to every step from ordering to deployment to management. New business initiatives require buy-in from multiple teams, and IT needs have to be predicted 3-to-5 years in advance. As most IT teams know, this is almost impossible to get right. In addition, vendor lock-in and increasing licensing costs are stretching budgets to the breaking point.

Time for a different approach?

Enterprise IT teams today are looking for ways to deliver on premises IT services with the speed and operational efficiency of public cloud services such as Amazon Web Services (AWS), Microsoft Azure and Google Compute Engine.

Taking cues from web giants, hyper-converged infrastructure combines compute and storage resources with intelligent software to eliminate common pain points associated with legacy infrastructure. Nutanix software and Fujitsu PRIMERGY server hardware deliver a comprehensive enterprise cloud platform that bridges the wide gap that exists between traditional infrastructure and public cloud services. The solution delivers turnkey infrastructure that integrates servers, storage and virtualisation along with end-to-end systems management and operations management capabilities. This allows enterprises to deploy infrastructure in minutes, and shift their focus to applications that power the business.

To avoid disparate IT infrastructure that increases in complexity as businesses grow, data centre customers increasingly see multi-cloud, software-defined systems as the go-to-alternative. Nutanix Enterprise Cloud on PRIMERGY is a turnkey integrated system supporting all popular hyper-visors that includes all the hardware and software to simplify deployment across a range of choices from private, public and edge cloud infrastructure. It combines high performance, energy efficient Fujitsu PRIMERGY standard x86 servers and the Nutanix Enterprise Cloud platform that delivers enterprise-ready services for compute, storage, networking, virtualisation and security in combination with cost-effective life-cycle management capabilities.
