Enterprise cloud computing vendor Nutanix, has announced new solutions that will allow IT teams to deploy, upgrade and troubleshoot their cloud infrastructure while working from anywhere – whether at home or from a central office location. The new solutions stated the company will be delivered via Nutanix Foundation Central, Insights and Lifecycle Manager – all of which will be available as part of Nutanix HCI software at no additional cost to customers.
While IT teams have been working overtime to deliver remote work solutions for businesses worldwide in light of the COVID-19 pandemic, they’re not always able to do so themselves. Managing IT infrastructure, troubleshooting issues, and updating software often requires IT teams to be on-site at their data centre, something even more challenging with social distancing requirements.
Greg Smith, VP, Technical and Product Marketing at Nutanix, said the company was founded with a vision to make IT infrastructure management so simple, that it essentially becomes invisible. “These new capabilities will offer an even more seamless experience from day one and beyond from anywhere. Nutanix’s simplified management as well as a more secure and resilient IT infrastructure, whether from home or a remote location, is something that is now more important than ever,” he said.
Smith said the Nutanix solutions will allow IT teams to remotely manage cloud infrastructure throughout the entire software lifecycle.
“Managed through the Prism interface, Nutanix Foundation Central allows IT teams to deploy private cloud infrastructure on a global scale from a single interface, and from any location,” he added. “After quickly installing non-configured appliances or servers on site, Foundation Central then takes over to image and configure Nutanix nodes, and install any Nutanix software solution.”
In addition to automating and centralising infrastructure software deployment, Foundation Central enables organisations to simply scale existing infrastructure capacity to keep pace with business growth.
