Nutanix Enterprise Cloud & Actifio
Nutanix Enterprise Cloud and Actifio deliver end-to-end solutions for enterprise copy data management.
Nutanix makes infrastructure invisible, elevating IT to focus on applications and services that power the enterprise. The Nutanix Hyperconverged Infrastructure (HCI) and enterprise cloud platform natively converges compute, virtualization and storage into a resilient, software-defined solution with rich machine intelligence.
The addition of Actifio blends seamlessly to deliver enterprise data virtualization that accelerates hybrid cloud usage to build higher quality applications faster while improving business resiliency and availability.
Enterprises struggle to provide advanced data management for Nutanix HCI and Enterprise Cloud.
IT organizations large and small struggle to simplify data center infrastructure and operations to gain predictable performance, scalability, and cloud-like consumption. Enterprises are seeking to streamline infrastructure, to lower expenses, to accelerate implementation agility and gain cost-effective and uncomplicated end-to-end data management.
Analytics and DevOps teams regularly require access to the correct and most up-to-date production and test data. APIs must be available to provide easy integration with DevOps toolchains and automation tools, such as Chef, Puppet, Ansible, or Jenkins. Because enterprises often use multiple point tools to meet their needs for data backup/recovery; operational complexity, and total cost of ownership (TCO) increase while data management is siloed, making compliance challenging to manage.

One consolidated platform provides predictable scalability delivered by the Nutanix Cloud web-scale architecture.
Actifio incorporates powerful data services including application-aware data capture and management for a wide range of use cases. From data protection and disaster recovery, to test data management and analytics, the solution handles even the most substantial data workloads.
Nutanix has helped large and small IT organizations simplify their datacenter and gain predictable performance, linear scalability, and cloud-like infrastructure consumption. Actifio Virtual Data Pipeline™ technology enables businesses to deliver enterprise data-as-a-service, cost-effectively and efficiently.
Frequently Asked Questions.
Customers can expect to eliminate under-utilized infrastructure silos. Storage space can be reduced by as much as 80%, and CapEx decreased as much as 50%.
VM related compute and storage performance will be significantly enhanced. Streamlined provisioning and refresh of data for application development and test will drop from hours/days to minutes.
Combining Nutanix and Actifio will modernize data protection and recovery operations for all enterprise data workloads. It will introduce control over non-production data sprawl which is typically 5-10X production capacity.
Nutanix solutions natively converge server and storage resources into a single, 100% software-defined appliance that comes ready to run all enterprise applications, at any scale. Built on a distributed web-scale architecture, a single Nutanix hyperconverged appliance can simultaneously run different workloads, including enterprise databases and applications, VDI, and big data workloads. Actifio’s enterprise data-as-a-service software combines with the Nutanix platform to enable a rich set of data services for enterprise workloads.
Actifio brings an application-centric view of data protection. The technology integrates with all the leading databases in a deep API-consistent level and uses this to capture data in an application consistent incremental forever manner for all data types. Actifio is hypervisor agnostic and so can work across your entire Nutanix cloud infrastructure.
Most importantly, Actifio enables the instant recovery of any data set of any size in minutes for data protection of DevOps purpose. Each copy is fully read write enabled and consiumes no disk space for optimal efficiency. The same technology enables new use cases like DevOps and analytics since data copies can be present anywhere at any time.
Finally, Actifio integrates with the leading public providers and provides the ability to move VMs and data to the cloud. It also fully supports object storage with the ability to retain data on object storage and provides the ability to instantly mount data from object storage.
