Accelerate hybrid cloud adoption with unified management and seamless application, data and license mobility across on-prem and Azure environments with Nutanix Cloud Clusters on Azure.
Simpler IT Operations
Nutanix Cloud Clusters (NC2) simplifies hybrid cloud operations enabling organizations to use a common control plane, existing IT processes, skills and toolsets across both on- premise and Azure environments.
Faster Cloud Adoption
Build a hybrid cloud with NC2 in under an hour and with just a few mouse clicks.
Move workloads in a fraction of the time without costly application refactoring and minimize migration risks.
Lower Total Cost of Operations
Maximize storage, compute and time efficiencies and lower your 5-year TCO by up to 18% with NC2 versus on- premises 3-tier solutions.
Take the complexity out of deploying and managing hybrid cloud environments across your on-premise and Azure investments with NC2 - an HCI-powered unified infrastructure and management platform.
Nutanix Cloud Clusters on Azure will be available for procurement via the Azure marketplace, allowing Microsoft customers to use their Microsoft Azure Consumption Commitment (MACC). Nutanix customers will also be able to port their existing term licenses to Nutanix Cloud Clusters on Azure or get on-demand consumption of Nutanix software through the Azure Marketplace, enabling frictionless procurement, license and workload portability.
Customers running workloads on Nutanix Cloud Clusters on Azure will benefit from Azure Hybrid Benefit as well as extended security updates to improve cost, security, and efficiency.
Native Networking Integration
NC2 allows you to run your Nutanix software in your existing Cloud accounts. Already have Virtual Private Networks (VPCs or VNets) and private subnets running in your Cloud regions? NC2 allows you to use them as-is thereby completely eliminating the need to manage complex and costly networking integration while also providing performance benefits. This enables organizations to have easy access to Cloud services for integration and app modernization.
Auto Host Remediation
Intelligent and continuous monitoring of cluster health and remediation of unforeseen errors is built into NC2. If a Cloud host instance is reported as unresponsive when NC2 expects the host to be operational, it will trigger a node replacement operation to make sure the cluster health is restored.
NC2 intelligently picks the node placements across the cloud racks during initial cluster creation to ensure highly available rack-aware design. Data replicas are stored across racks ensuring your clusters remain available even in the case of a complete rack becoming unavailable. Rack awareness is enabled by default when the cluster is created in the cloud. Nutanix Prism monitors for the availability status and alerts when the cluster is in a degraded situation.
On-Demand Capacity Scaling
Easily add new compute nodes when you need to spin up more capacity in NC2. You can either manually add nodes and expand the size of your cluster with one-click or use triggers from X-play based on CPU or memory consumption to scale out nodes automatically.
Cloud Cost Analytics
An integration between NC2 and Nutanix Beam that uses tag based cost analytics helps you stay on top of your bare metal spending in the clouds. Also use Beam to identify potential cost savings with automated cost governance policies to eliminate or right-size cloud resources and reservation based pricing recommendations. Save 35% or more on your public cloud spend with Nutanix.
