Nutanix introduced several new capabilities in its hyperconverged infrastructure (HCI) software and AHV hypervisor. Advanced automation for recovering applications and data, support for seamless multi-site disaster recovery (DR), synchronous replication for workloads running on AHV, and a near-zero data loss with “near sync” replication are the new capabilities.
Expansion of HCI and AHV capabilities
The new capabilities in Nutanix HCI and AHV were developed for enabling customers to confidently deliver mission-critical applications with significantly less complexity and lower management overhead.
Greg Smith, VP of Product Marketing at Nutanix, said,
“Maintaining continuous business operations is a high priority for all types of companies and organizations. However, most businesses rely on custom, handcrafted DR implementations to guard against system-wide IT failures. Nutanix now natively delivers automated, easy-to-deploy disaster recovery solutions built to deliver applications that must always be available.”
With Multi-Site Disaster Recovery, Nutanix supports multi-site DR designs, helping enable enterprises to quickly recover from the simultaneous failure of two or more data centers while keeping applications and data available to users. The company offers a 20-second RPO with the add of unmatched Near Sync Disaster Recovery.
Synchronous replication is now natively supported on the Nutanix AHV hypervisor which delivers customers an available service for their most important workloads, such as virtual desktop infrastructure, databases, and general server virtualization. More flexibility and control over the end-to-end recovery process comes with this latest release for customers.
