Lenovo and Nutanix Launch New HX 2000 Hyperconverged Solution for SMBs

Lenovo unveiled a new offering in its Converged HX Series portfolio tailored specifically for small- to-medium sized businesses (SMB). The Converged HX 2000 integrates leading edge Nutanix Xpress software, also announced, to deliver a simplified, cost effective solution that helps lower total-cost-of-ownership and enables SMBs to focus less time on infrastructure management. Converged infrastructure is one of the top five IT priorities for nearly 65 million SMB organizations worldwide according to the SMB Group. While many data center solutions available can meet the core needs of small and medium-sized businesses, they often can be too complex and expensive for these organizations to deploy. Lenovo’s HX 2000 Series, running the Nutanix Xpress edition software, is engineered to offer management simplicity, ease of growth and built-in data protection at an affordable price. The Nutanix Xpress edition software in the HX 2000 Series appliances replaces the complexity of managing a separate storage area network (SAN) by aggregating compute, storage and connectivity into a common resource pool within the appliance. Xpress also provides one-click, non-disruptive upgrades that remove the effort and provide customers with complete peace of mind that they always have access to the latest capabilities and most secure environment for their IT infrastructure. In addition to native resiliency, the appliances also offer a built-in, simple back-up to either Amazon or Microsoft Azure cloud services through Cloud Connect. Lastly, the Xpress software edition supports multiple hypervisors and comes with the Acropolis hypervisor (AHV) included at no additional charge. The HX 2000 Series appliances are equipped with next-generation Intel processors, DDR4 memory and tiered storage to provide enterprise-quality performance with the right built-in features in a scalable, power-efficient solution. The HX 2000 Series appliances are also compatible with Lenovo’s XClarity management software, which helps SMB IT professionals more easily manage the lifecycle of their infrastructure, and offers a single point of contact for support. Lenovo’s HX 2000 Series appliances can be provisioned in just an hour or less and thus help simplify deployment and management. This is a critical consideration for SMB customers like local and city governments, K-12 school districts or small, regional hospitals and healthcare facilities that can’t afford downtime and don’t have extensive teams of IT specialists to manage their infrastructure. With all software pre-installed and ready to run nearly all virtualized applications for small and medium businesses, customers will benefit from a fully integrated, turnkey solution that eliminates complicated IT integration and set-up, enabling SMBs to focus on running their businesses.

Spirit Airlines Selects Nutanix as the Infrastructure Platform

Nutanix announced that Spirit Airlines has selected Nutanix as the infrastructure platform of choice for its next-generation datacenter. With Nutanix supporting mission-critical applications, including its flight operations software, Spirit achieved record IT performance during the 2015 "2016 holiday season, recording zero issues during this peak period. Nutanix’s Enterprise Cloud delivers agility, resiliency and integrated management with consumer-grade design to support critical plane maintenance workstations and run SABRE Flight Operations Systems software in Spirit’s corporate operation control center. Spirit can now run and deploy applications natively on Nutanix in a virtualized environment. Through simplifying their infrastructure stack with Nutanix, the company was able to cohesively integrate their entire datacenter and utilize VMware and Nutanix HCI with Cisco ACI. The internal IT teams were able to quickly deploy and manage multiple new projects, while learning VMware skillsets at the same time, as they were rapidly deploying and running critical business applications with Nutanix.

Nutanix Announces New Release of its Web-Scale Computing Platform that Delivers up to 4x Performance Improvement

Nutanix has announced a new release of its web-scale computing platform that delivers up to 4x performance improvement for any workload with no additional hardware or software license, freedom to choose hypervisors without lock-in, and built-in machine learning capabilities that increase operational efficiency. Nutanix solutions for building and operating enterprise clouds uniquely deliver the agility, pay-as-you-grow consumption, and operational simplicity of the public cloud without sacrificing the predictability, security, and control of on-premises infrastructure. To support the increasing demands of modern businesses, an enterprise cloud platform must include a web-scale infrastructure fabric that delivers resiliency, availability, predictable performance across a wide range of enterprise applications. In addition, it should incorporate seamless application and data mobility, invisible operations with one-click simplicity through built-in machine intelligence, extensive automation and rich analytics, and a security-first design. The 4.6 release of the Nutanix software provides a platform that furthers its mission to deliver invisible infrastructure to elevate IT. Nutanix appliances, including the recently updated NX-9000 all-flash model. Customers benefit from better performance across a wide range of enterprise application workloads, e.g., powering up to 30,000 Microsoft Exchange mailboxes in just 8U of rack space, as validated through the Microsoft Exchange Solution Reviewed Program (ESRP); delivering the fastest storage I/O performance across hyperconverged all flash solutions with over 1 million storage IOPS in just 4U of datacenter space; up to 4x price/performance gains on existing investments to deliver as low as $0.35/IOPS, better than top-selling all-flash arrays which also suffer from complex management and additional networking requirements.
