Nutanix Announces New Features For Big Data and Analytics Applications
Nutanix HCI, Objects, Splunk Certification bring massive scale, one-click simplicity to upgrade IT support of data scientists.
Global enterprise cloud computing Nutanix has announced it extended the Nutanix platform with new features for big data and analytics applications, as well as unstructured data storage. These capabilities, part of Nutanix Objects 2.0, include the ability to manage object data across multiple Nutanix clusters for achieving massive scale, increased object storage capacity per node, and formal Splunk SmartStore certification. The enhancements add to a cloud platform that is already optimised for big data applications, to deliver performance and incredible scale, while also reducing cost by maximising existing, unused resources.
Nutanix software brings scale, performance and simplicity, along with built-in automation and one-click operations, to free data scientists, security teams, and line of businesses to focus on extracting value from data. The company’s subscription licensing model also brings the flexibility to quickly adapt to dynamic business needs. Additionally, by natively integrating object storage services with Nutanix’s HCI solution, IT teams can now better leverage unused resources to reduce costs and streamline storage management and administration.
“Every company is striving to become a data-driven company,” said Greg Smith, VP of Product Marketing at Nutanix. “Big data applications require incredible scale and performance at competitive cost structures. The Nutanix platform, with the addition of multi-cluster object storage, offers a compelling solution for unstructured object storage that leverages existing storage resources for improved storage economics.”
New features for running big data workloads, include increased scale-out object storage – Nutanix Objects 2.0 now features multi-cluster support to deliver massive scale object stores;
deeper storage nodes – Nutanix Objects 2.0 now supports deeper, high-capacity nodes with up to 240TB of storage and enhanced security – Nutanix Objects 2.0 customers can now take advantage of WORM (Write Once Read Many) to lock their content without necessarily enabling versioning to meet a variety of regulatory and compliance mandates.
Nutanix Objects is now certified by Splunk as SmartStore compliant allowing customers to simply and seamlessly manage Splunk data growth with Nutanix Objects. Joint customers can now run Splunk workloads on Nutanix software, and leverage Nutanix Objects for built-in object storage to support their Splunk environment.
New capabilities included in Nutanix Objects 2.0 are generally available.
