SAP TechEd Las Vegas, which starts today and runs until Friday, teaches the SAP user community about new product innovations while also providing a glimpse of the technology models of the future, including artificial intelligence, Blockchain, machine learning, and the Internet of Things (IoT). Nutanix will be there too, talking about how the Nutanix Enterprise Cloud Platform bridges today’s SAP datacenter with the future of enterprise computing. Nutanix brings unprecedented simplicity to crucial yet tedious and time-consuming maintenance tasks, including:
► One-click cluster upgrades - during business hours, with no need to plan downtime for your production SAP landscapes.
► One-click hypervisor conversion - from ESXi to Nutanix AHV
(and back again).
► One-click node addition and linear scalability.
► One-click cloning of SAP systems - rapidly, and without consuming additional storage
Nutanix also gives customers unparalleled freedom of choice, whether it’s hardware, hypervisor, or cloud. For hardware, you can run the Nutanix Enterprise Cloud operating system software from our branded appliance or from our OEM partners, Lenovo and Dell, as well as on servers from Cisco and HPE
. All of these platforms run on Intel, but we have also announced a partnership with IBM that will allow you to run workloads on IBM Power servers as well. For hypervisors, you can choose from ESXi, Hyper-V, or our native Nutanix hypervisor, AHV.
If you are running on-prem now, but considering leveraging the public cloud, you can choose from Amazon Web Services, Azure, Google Cloud Platform
, through our recently announced partnership with Google, or our own recently announced cloud offering, Xi Cloud Services
, for disaster recovery.
In short, Nutanix breaks the shackles of hardware, hypervisor, and cloud lock-in for your enterprise workloads, and, as a result, gives you the flexibility to craft the right environment for your SAP landscapes. Add to this Nutanix’s industry-leading operational simplicity through Prism, which lets you manage your entire environment from a single management interface, including workloads on different architectures and clouds, and you have the future of enterprise cloud computing—today.
