Nutanix today announced that it has extended the Nutanix platform with new features pertaining to big data and analytics applications, as well as unstructured data storage.
These capabilities, part of Nutanix Objects 2.0, comprise the ability to handle object data across multiple Nutanix clusters for managing massive scale, increased object storage capacity per node, and formal Splunk SmartStore certification. The enhancements add to a cloud platform that is optimised already for big data applications, to deliver performance and incredible scale, while also reducing cost by maximising existing, unused resources.
“Digital transformation requires web-scale storage for enterprise workloads. Object storage is rapidly becoming the storage of choice for next-gen and big data applications. As object storage makes the leap from the cloud to the datacenter and mission-critical workloads, economics must be balanced with performance.” said Amita Potnis, research director in IDC’s Storage team. “Nutanix is known for flexibility and simplicity. Multi-cluster support and certification with Splunk SmartStore with Nutanix Objects will allow for massive scale at the right price and performance that these workloads require.”
“Every company is striving to become a data-driven company,” said Greg Smith, VP of Product Marketing at Nutanix. “Big data applications require incredible scale and performance at competitive cost structures. The Nutanix platform, with the addition of multi-cluster object storage, offers a compelling solution for unstructured object storage that leverages existing storage resources for improved storage economics.”
