Nutanix Clusters now available on AWS Cloud

Nutanix has announced it is making its technology available on AWS through Nutanix Clusters, a hybrid cloud extension from on-premise data centres to public clouds.

The hybrid cloud solution has now launched in general availability from the AWS Sydney cloud region and 19 other AWS regions globally.

Nutanix Clusters on AWS will allow customers to use all Nutanix products and services, including its hyperconverged infrastructure software, on bare metal Amazon EC2 instances.

Nutanix Chief Commercial Officer Tarkan Maner said the launch is in line with the company’s mission to help its customers make IT so simple it’s invisible.

“As the industry evolved, our focus has expanded beyond the data centre to help our customers manage the complexity of multiple clouds, whether private or public. Nutanix Clusters on AWS is the realisation of this vision,” he said.

“This enables complete flexibility by allowing businesses to write code once and use it anywhere, taking advantage of scale, location, integration and pricing of multiple options — this is the true vision of hybrid cloud.”

The Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS), which is already a customer of both companies, has expressed interest in the new solution.

“A single cloud solution to manage multiple clouds will make it easier to scale our IT needs,” ABS CISO Julian Doak explained.

“Nutanix Clusters provides a seamless way to burst capacity into public clouds to increase our VDI workloads when needed to support Census activities, while knowing all our apps will just work — without needing to repackage or rearchitect them.”
