Nutanix is proud to announce a new Xpert professional services portfolio to meet the needs of enterprises of all sizes in their database modernization and automation journey. The series of database modernization services will bring your Microsoft SQL Server, Oracle, PostgreSQL, and MySQL databases into a virtual environment and manage the full lifecycle of databases using the one-click simplicity of Nutanix Era.

The professional service offerings help IT organizations plan, design, and implement their next database environment, including helping them set up storage and virtual machines for Nutanix HCI core, and deploy and configure Nutanix Era to enable functions like provisioning, backup and recovery, and copy data management. The services can be consumed in two forms:

  • As individual or a la carte services. This includes design workloads, database migration planning workshops, deployment service, backup and copy data management configuration services, and more.
  • As a service package. There are two service packages: Starter and Pro service pack. The Starter service package is focused on bringing Nutanix Era into your environment through a design workshop and deployment services. The Pro package includes a Database and Era design workshop as well as a database migration planning workshop to migrate your existing databases into an Era managed environment while using Era’s advanced database backup and copy data management features.
