Software for your Private Cloud
The complexity, costs and tedious processes that come with legacy infrastructure distract IT from delivering the apps and services your business needs.
Nutanix Acropolis software converges compute and storage to provide cloud-like infrastructure that can run any application at any scale. Unlike other HCI products, Acropolis provides the freedom to choose the right technology for the business, including hardware platform, virtualization technology and public cloud integration. With in-built data protection, security, and self-healing capabilities, IT teams get a full stack solution they control, which can be deployed in minutes - without requiring teams of specialists.
Leader Again in the November 2018 Gartner Magic Quadrant for Hyperconverged Infrastructure
Simplify your Datacenter
Eliminate the time and effort needed to design, procure and deploy infrastructure. Get started in minutes, with hyperconverged infrastructure that includes compute, storage and networking, and scales out as needs grow. IDC found that customers get 60% lower TCO with a 7-month payback period.
Eliminate Rigid Storage Area Networks
Replace expensive standalone and often rigid SAN and NAS solutions with a distributed pool built on direct-attached storage. Scale-out as your data grows, and increase storage performance by eliminating storage networking and specialized HBAs.
Bring your own Virtualization Software
Leverage built-in virtualization provided by Nutanix AHV, or use popular virtualization solutions from VMware, Microsoft or Citrix on Acropolis. Get rid of specialized management tools and centrally administer virtual machines alongside infrastructure.
Centralized Management with Advanced Analytics
Discard multiple management consoles. Get integrated control and visibility across the virtualized infrastructure stack. Leverage advanced machine learning technology to gain insights and optimize virtualization and infrastructure planning and management.
Increase your security posture and reduce threats with a self-healing security configuration baseline that exceeds the requirements of the U.S. Department of Defense. The software comes with powerful security features, including role based access control (RBAC), two-factor authentication, and FIPS compliant data at rest encryption.
Never Suffer from Data Loss
Acropolis automatically replicates data across the cluster to ensure that failed disks never compromise the integrity of your data. Seamlessly backup data, or snapshot virtual disks or machines locally or replicate them to a remote site or a cloud service.
Gracefully Recover When Disaster Strikes
Shield your business users and customers from failures. Guarantee near-100% uptime for applications and zero data loss by replicating across sites or the cloud.
