Learn how Intel® Select Solutions for Nutanix Cloud Platform can help you modernize your IT infrastructure.
Nutanix delivers a comprehensive hybrid/multicloud platform that bridges the gap between traditional on-premises infrastructure and public cloud services. Nutanix uses hyperconverged infrastructure (HCI) as a foundation and can help enterprises reduce IT complexity, make better use of their volumes of data and speed time to value. Enterprises can use easy-to-manage, high-performing HCI to focus on customer and business needs and run business-critical workloads.
Intel® Select Solutions for Nutanix Cloud Platform provide a turnkey solution that can help enhance storage performance and application responsiveness as well as offer a faster, simpler path to infrastructure modernization and hybrid/multicloud environments. These solutions enable efficient use of infrastructure and deliver the necessary performance for demanding, latency-sensitive workloads in the data center. The solutions combine a Nutanix software stack with hardware built on 3rd Generation Intel® Xeon® Scalable processors, Intel® Optane™ technology, Intel® Ethernet Network Adapters, and other Intel® technologies. Additionally, they are pre-configured and verified to help enterprises quickly modernize infrastructure to support multiple complex workloads simultaneously. Intel® Select Solutions for Nutanix Cloud Platform help improve both capital expenditure and operating expense efficiency by offering high-performing, scalable HCI solutions; the ability to consolidate multiple workloads; and the flexibility to simplify deployment and management.
Solution benefits include:
High-performance HCI can handle today’s data-intensive workloads like virtualized desktop infrastructure (VDI), database transactions and data warehousing.
Simplified cloud operations make app development, deployment and maintenance consistent across public clouds, private clouds and the edge.
Scalable Intel® architecture-based solutions let enterprises add compute and storage resources as needed.
Co-engineered and qualified HCI hardware/software and a unified management plane takes the guesswork out of moving to hybrid/multicloud.
In benchmarking tests running Nutanix X-Ray, Intel® Select Solutions for Nutanix Cloud Platform Base design achieved up to 1,033,209 IOPS (random read, X-Ray test). HammerDB testing on seven instances of Microsoft SQL Server resulted in 2,976,625 new orders per minute (NOPM). This compared with 1,559,207 NOPM on the previous-generation platform, an improvement of 91%. Average I/O latency measured on the Nutanix storage cluster controller during the test on the seven instances of SQL improved from 5.3 to 4.1 ms gen-over-gen, an average of 29%. These results demonstrate that Intel® Select Solutions for Nutanix Cloud Platform running on the latest Intel® Xeon® Scalable processors can support a heavy online transaction processing (OLTP) workload and simultaneously have compute, storage and memory, and networking resources available to support other workloads running on the cluster.
