Nutanix is a comprehensive, intelligent, software-defined, hyper-converged platform. It integrates computing resources, storage and virtualization features into one consistent system, easy to implement, maintain and expand. Based on standard x86 servers without an external storage, Nutanix reduces costs, simplifies the architecture and shortens the implementation time of the solution. Nutanix software allows to create a virtualization platform, build a complete data processing center, cloud solutions, implement virtual desktop VDI infrastructure solutions or private virtual VPS servers. Nutanix Enterprise Cloud OS software, running on standard x86 servers, allows to starting from a 3-nodes cluster configuration, easily scalable by adding next single nodes. Nutanix software can run on the Lenovo ThinkAgile platform – certified and preconfigured nodes available in a wide range of hardware configurations allow them to be adapted to various types of workloads and requirements. Designed to be easily deployed and managed in scalable clusters, the Lenovo ThinkAgile HX series provides a combination of Nutanix software with Lenovo scalable servers. Appliances are delivered as fully integrated, tested and preconfigured kits with preinstalled software making them quick and easy and cost effective to install, deploy and maintain.
