Nutanix Announces Nutanix Central, Cloud to Edge Management Solution
Company will extend universal cloud operating model to consistently run apps and data anywhere
Most organizations today are struggling with the complexity of managing an increasing number of environments across on-premises, public cloud, and the edge, leading to management silos, costs, security risks, and more, according to the Enterprise Cloud Index. Organizations looking for a seamless hybrid multicloud experience require a universal cloud operating model, meaning consistent management across endpoints, integrated security, self-service and on-demand resources, governance and full license portability that allow customers to run apps and data anywhere. The Nutanix Central™ solution will greatly simplify management at a large, federated scale across endpoints.
“The reality for most enterprise customers today is that they’re managing a vast number of applications across multiple environments. This is leading to significant management challenges that are only going to increase as hybrid multicloud deployments grow,” said

From the Nutanix Central dashboard, customers will access domain and cluster-level metrics, including capacity utilization and alert summary statistics, to get a quick overview of the state of each domain.

Organizations struggling with managing applications and data across environments, including multiple public clouds, on-premises, hosted datacenter, and edge endpoints, will benefit from Nutanix Central and a universal cloud operating model. For example, an organization with hosted datacenters in multiple locations, as well as different public cloud vendors across geographies will be able to enable a centralized governance and security program. Similarly, retailers with a large number of stores would greatly benefit from having one control plane to manage edge locations.
In addition to Nutanix Central, the company today also announced new capabilities in the Nutanix Cloud Platform to support higher performant and more secure applications and data – all of which will be managed through Nutanix Central. Specifically, the improvements enable independent scaling of compute-only nodes running database virtual machines on either AHV or ESXi, to tune performance and reduce total cost of ownership, and the introduction of high-performance storage-only nodes.
Nutanix Central and new functionality in Flow Network Security are under development. New performance capabilities in the Nutanix Cloud Platform and new functionality in Flow Virtual Networking are available to customers now. More information is available here.
