Nutanix Expands MultiCloud Solution Portfolio

Sponsored by Businesswire

a leader in enterprise cloud computing, today announced the continued
evolution of its offerings across private and public clouds, further
making multicloud computing a reality for its customers. With today’s
news Nutanix is extending its Xi Frame desktop-as-a-service solution
from the public cloud to the private cloud, enabling the delivery of
apps and desktops in a true hybrid cloud environment. In addition, the
company is announcing new functionality and additional planned
availability zones for its cloud-based disaster recovery (DR) service,
Xi Leap.

According to the IDC
InfoBrief, Sponsored by Nutanix
, “Surviving and Thriving in a
Multi-cloud World,” multicloud deployments are now the norm for
enterprise organizations – less than 30% of customers report using
single cloud environments. Most customers leverage different cloud
platforms across multiple service providers. The interoperability of
data and applications between these varied cloud environments is growing
in importance and yet access to hybrid cloud capabilities where a single
application runs across clouds remains elusive to most organizations. As
companies eagerly seek out ways to make the multi cloud environment a
reality, these new updates from Nutanix provide additional capabilities
to streamline the implementation of their cloud services deployments.

Introducing Nutanix Xi Frame for the Private Cloud

With Nutanix Xi Frame customers can already access applications and
virtual desktops from popular public clouds like AWS and Azure, simply
and easily, using any browser and any device. With the latest Xi Frame
update running on the Nutanix AHV hypervisor, customers can now extend
desktop delivery to their Nutanix private cloud, integrating virtual
desktop infrastructure (VDI) services with the Nutanix Enterprise Cloud
platform. Xi Frame desktops can be simultaneously delivered via multiple
clouds and managed via a single console for seamless control and
administration, providing a true hybrid experience.

In addition to being available to users on AWS and Azure, Xi Frame is
now also available to customers worldwide for Nutanix private cloud
deployments using AHV. Customers can provision 1000s of virtual desktops
in minutes as opposed to weeks enabling them to improve the economics,
speed and scale of desktop delivery. IT teams can now select the right
cloud – public or private – for their VDI initiatives.

Extending the Reach of Cloud-based DR to More Regions with Nutanix Xi

As enterprises continue to embrace cloud services, and enterprise
infrastructures become more virtual, data and IT operations are rapidly
migrating to the cloud. When done right, cloud-based disaster recovery
is an attractive strategy for any size organization to protect their
business-critical applications. Nutanix Xi Leap extends the enterprise
datacenter to the cloud allowing IT teams to harmonize public and
private clouds, and to deliver enhanced availability for critical data
and applications. Customers get a natively-integrated DR cloud service,
and single pane management, to protect critical workloads running in the
datacenter and in a cloud, delivering improved business

Nutanix is adding new capabilities to its Xi Leap DR service, including:

  • New Availability Zones: Nutanix Xi Leap is expanding beyond its
    current availability zones in US West, US East and the U.K. In the
    coming months, additional Xi Leap availability zones are expected to
    be available in Italy, through Nutanix’s partnership with Sparkle, the
    international services arm of Telecom Italia Group, as well as in
    Japan and Germany.
  • Support for ESXi: Xi Leap now also provides DR services for
    enterprise workloads running on Nutanix private clouds using VMware
    ESXi, making it even simpler to transform existing applications into a
    hybrid service.

“With previous disaster recovery systems, we weren’t able to achieve the
performance we expected for virtual machine restoration and managing DR
as a separate silo made our infrastructure more complex,” said Patrick
Sudderth, Director of Technical Services, Lexipol. “Nutanix Xi Leap
allows us to configure policies that automate the DR workflow directly
within the Prism Console and restoration happens in a matter of minutes.
No other DRaaS vendor can come close to the simplicity of execution we
experience with Xi Leap.”

Securing Cloud Applications

Fundamental to delivering applications in a multicloud architecture is
ensuring that applications remain secure – independent of the cloud
infrastructure chosen. Comprehensive and automated compliance
assessments are necessary to ensure application mobility between clouds.
Xi Beam, a Nutanix SaaS offering that provides cloud governance, will
include a real-time security compliance module designed to identify
critical cloud infrastructure vulnerabilities and recommend specific
remediation. With new security and compliance functionality, IT
architects will be enabled to fix security risks before they impact the

“The multicloud world is the new reality for IT – it’s no longer up for
debate. Customers need solutions that can bring together the full mix of
public, private, and edge clouds that will soon make up their critical
infrastructure without drowning them in needless complexity and
unchecked costs,” said Sunil Potti, Chief Product and Development
Officer, Nutanix. “By continuing to add new capabilities to our
portfolio, we’re giving customers the freedom to deliver their
applications and data from the cloud that makes the most sense for their
