AHV: A Virtualization Solution for the Enterprise Cloud
Hypervisor software licensing can be a significant portion of the IT infrastructure spend. Are you getting value from that spend? Nutanix AHV is an enterprise-ready hypervisor included at no additional cost with every Nutanix node.
Acropolis Block Services (ABS) is a native scale-out block storage solution that provides direct block-level access via the iSCSI protocol to the Nutanix Distributed Storage Fabric (DSF). It enables enterprise applications running on external servers to leverage the benefits of the hyperconverged Nutanix architecture.
Protect Existing Investments
Connect storage with database environments such as Oracle, SQL Server and SAP that are deployed on specialized physical servers for price/performance or on bare-metal x86 to minimize software licensing costs.
Eliminate the need for traditional Fibre Channel SANs and other specialized products that drive costs higher and require specialized IT administrators to maintain.
Ideal for non-virtualized, high-performance database applications – if a single Nutanix CVM can deliver 100,000 IOPS, a four-node Nutanix cluster can deliver an aggregated throughput of 400,000 IOPS.
The platform is simple, scalable, and enterprise-grade out of the box, and can easily be managed by IT generalists from within Prism.
Leverage Hyperconverged Benefits
ABS delivers all the benefits of a hyperconverged environment, including intelligent data reduction, advanced disaster recovery, backup to the public cloud, and tiering capabilities.
