Prism: Infrastructure Management for Nutanix Clusters

The Nutanix Enterprise Cloud natively converges compute, storage, virtualization, systems management, and operations management into a turnkey platform that can be deployed in minutes to run any application out of the box. Nutanix also offers powerful virtualization capabilities, including core virtual machine (VM) operations, live migration, VM high availbility, and virtual network management, as fully integrated features of the infrastructure stack rather than as standalone products that require separate deployment and management. The Nutanix solution has two primary product families—Nutanix Acropolis and Nutanix Prism. Acropolis is the distributed data plane that provides storage, virtualization, backup, and DR services, and Prism is the centralized management solution for Nutanix environments.
