I-BIT and Nutanix: joined at the hip

I-BIT are Nutanix Premier Partners and they are our hyperconverged platform of choice for our solutions. Specifically, we use Nutanix technology in the software-defined datacenter and hyperconverged infrastructure space because they are the market leader and are consistently recognised by Gartner as being furthest forward with their completeness of vision within their Magic Quadrant.

Hyperconverged and integrated

Nutanix makes IT infrastructure invisible with an enterprise cloud platform that delivers the agility and economics of the public cloud – without sacrificing the security and control of on-premise infrastructure.

Hyperconverged infrastructure natively integrates compute and storage into a single x86 based server deployed in scale-out clusters. It reduces power and space and eliminates storage complexity. Built-in virtualization makes infrastructure truly invisible, shifting focus back to applications.

Delivering the hybrid cloud

Nutanix has designed its Virtual Computing Platform for hybrid deployments. It is the antithesis of the old-style, legacy, ‘single machine’ architecture. It provides a unified, always-on cluster of compute and storage nodes that can run any virtual machine at massive scale. If more storage or compute capacity is required, additional Nutanix nodes can be added non-disruptively, one at a time.
