Rubrik to Showcase its Data Security Platform at .NEXT 2023Blog
This is a guest post from Srujana Puttagunta - Senior Product Marketing Manager RubrikAre you attending the .NEXT 2023 conference in Chicago this year? As a gold sponsor, Rubrik is excited to showcase its industry-leading data security platform designed specifically to combat the growing threat of cyberattacks and help organizations recover with speed and confidence.Legacy backups are obsolete – here's whyAccording to a recent survey, 66% of organizations were hit with ransomware within the last year. Relying on legacy backups as a defense against cyberattacks is ineffective and obsolete in today's rapidly evolving threat landscape.Legacy backups are vulnerable to cyberattacks, fail to provide critical insights and visibility into what data is at risk, and don’t allow you to simulate and test your recovery, which makes it difficult to ensure that the restored data is free of malware.Rubrik Security Cloud: A trusted solution for cyber recoveryRubrik Security Cloud is the leading data se

IT Modernization: What are you Waiting for?Blog
How to get off the sidelines and accomplish your datacenter modernization goalsThis is a guest post from Joseph George, Vice President of Compute, Industry and Strategic Alliances, Hewlett Packard EnterpriseWhen I talk to customers, nearly all of them have datacenter modernization on their minds. Some want to free themselves from the cost concerns and risks of legacy IT so they can simply run existing applications with better performance, efficiency, and security. Some want the latest IT so they can take advantage of cool new technologies like AI, blockchain, containers, and quantum computing.Many want to do all of this. And nearly all of them hope modernization will help them overcome challenges with staffing shortages, budget pressures, and the need to reduce energy consumption to fight rising energy costs and meet sustainability goals.Datacenter modernization done right can help you accomplish these goals and more. It can help you do more with less and stretch budget and staff resou
Hybrid and Multi-Cloud Require Workload-Optimized ServersBlog
Today, organizations face many choices on where to run their applications and what is best for their employees and customers. The use of public (shared) clouds has emerged as an alternative to running applications on a private (with the organization’s data centers). While each has benefits, many enterprises are using both types of clouds. While specific applications may require highly tuned servers, storage, or networking profiles, many applications can be run in either environment.Enterprises may run hundreds of different applications which consume differing amounts of compute, storage, and networking performance, to deliver agreed-upon SLAs to the customers (users). Highly tuned systems may also include a specific amount of cores, memory, storage types, and networking options unavailable in a public cloud environment. While public clouds offer many types of instances to customers, there are still many configurations that cannot be rented in a public cloud. For example, if terabytes o
Revolutionizing Application Development and Management in a Hybrid Multicloud WorldBlog
The Lenovo and Nutanix partnership has been going strong since 2015, with deep cross-functional collaboration that delivers to market the most advanced and efficient solutions for our customers’ edge-to-cloud IT needs.

Introducing Frame Single Sign-OnBlog
Our patented browser-based, SSO solution for Windows Active Directory domain-joined VMsFrame® customers now have early access to the new Frame SSO feature, which provides Windows® Active Directory (AD) SSO into virtual apps and desktops — all from your Frame Dashboard (Settings > Domain Settings > Frame SSO) on a per Frame Account basis.This blog guides you through a deep-dive on this industry leading feature, how it works and how it compares to other solutions from other DaaS vendors, and why we believe Frame SSO is a game-changer.BackgroundThe desktop-as-a-service (DaaS) industry continues to face a long-standing challenge in providing AD SSO into Windows domain-joined virtual desktops. Users are typically required to log in at least twice — once to their DaaS platform and a second time to AD if the VM hosting their session is domain-joined.Further complicating this issue, different sets of credentials — usually a SAML 2.0-based identity provider like ADFS, AzureAD, Google, o

Nutanix Files Episode 4.2.1 - WORM Gains Compliance SupportBlog
The release of the Nutanix Files™ 4.2.1 software version adds support for compliance level WORM within Files Storage Service of Nutanix Unified Storage. If you recall from our 4.1 release we introduced support for WORM (see the blog here Nutanix Files Episode 4.1 - A Security Story). In the 4.1 release, Files introduced support for Enterprise or Governance level WORM allowing customers to store files in a write-once-read-many state.However, a user can still be granted access to conduct what are called “privileged deletes”. The privileged access allows operators with the proper permissions the ability to expire a WORM file before the retention timer elapses. This could be fine for organizations where the business requirements are not aligned or not needed to adhere to regulatory requirements to retain WORM stored data in a locked state until the policy expires. However, the ability to delete data before WORM policy expiration is not acceptable for heavily regulated industries that requ

Honey I Shrunk My Cluster (Multiple Nodes Down in RF2)Blog
This post was authored by Jeroen Tielen (Tielen Consultancy) Nutanix Technology ChampionWithin Nutanix we have Replication Factor (How many data copies are written in the cluster) and Redundancy Factor (how many nodes/disks can go offline). Both can have a value of 2 and 3. What is what is explained here: Blog Post.So, when we have a larger cluster, we always recommend using RF3 (Redundancy Factor 3) as the risk is higher that you have multiple nodes/disks go offline at the same time.During trainings and onsite customer work I often get the question, "what will happen if multiple nodes go offline in Redundancy Factor 2?" In this blog post I will explain different scenarios and their behaviors.My cluster is 7 nodes and configured with RF2 (Redundancy and Replication) and HA Reservation is enabled.I've got 30 Windows 11 VDI's (Yes, with vTPM ;)) running in the cluster and all load is spread across the nodes. This is the current usage on the cluster:Now 1 node will go offline. Or in my ca
