Nutanix Inc has launched Nutanix Mine, which works as an open solution in integrating secondary storage operations along with the Nutanix Enterprise Cloud Platform that stores primary and secondary data within the private cloud.
According to Nutanix, customers will be able to manage their HCI environment and back-up operations from a single management console through native integration and with the help of Back-up vendors like Veenam, HYCU, Commvault, Veritas and Unitrends.
Sunil Potti, Chief Product and Development Officer, Nutanix, says, “The hyperconverged market’s rapid growth story is largely attributable to its promise of modernising infrastructure and reducing complexity by eliminating silos within the datacenter. But even as customers embraced HCI, the secondary storage silo persisted”.
Potti added, “With Nutanix Mine, customers will get all the benefits of collapsing this silo into a single platform-reduced management complexity, simplified operations and reduced TCO-without the requirement that they forgo the back-up solutions best suited for their business needs”.
Nutanix mentions, “Mine will regularise overall deployment and unravel the entire lifecycle of data-back-up operations which includes on-going management, scaling and troubleshooting and also conserve the consumer’s right in choosing the right back-up service for their specific infrastructure environment.”
According to Nutanix, Mine facilitates intelligent tiering along with advanced data reduction capabilities. It will also enable several enterprises in selecting the best data back-up software for their organisation. “The enterprises will now be able to get data back-up software which are enhanced for their Nutanix HCI environment and are also capable in minimising the time and expense of configuring standalone secondary storage solutions,” says Nutanix.
Nutanix mentions that Nutanix Mine with Veeam and Nutanix Mine with HYCU are expected to be available in the market by the third quarter of 2019.
