Nutanix Era is a suite of software which automates and simplifies database management, bringing one-click simplicity and invisible operations to database provisioning and lifecycle management (LCM). Starting with Copy Data Management (CDM) as its first offering, Nutanix Era enables database admins to provision, clone, refresh and restore their databases to any point in time. Through a rich, but simple to use, UI and CLI, they can restore to the latest application-consistent transaction

Era enables you to easily provision database environments (either production or otherwise) on your Nutanix clusters. Also, you can only provision the database server VM that hosts a database, so that you can later create or clone databases on that database server.

Some of the components include

  • Database engines: Custom software images that are tailor-made to enterprise needs.

  • Database profiles: Customizable database profiles for software, compute, networking, and database parameters.

  • Database recovery SLAs: Customizable recovery SLAs for continuous, daily, weekly, monthly, and quarterly Recovery Point Objectives (RPOs).


Following is the DBaaS workflow in Era.

  1. Install the Era VM on a Nutanix cluster.

  2. Either use the sample built-in profiles available in Era, update the sample profiles to suit your requirements, or create profiles.

  3. Either provision a new source database server VM and database on your Nutanix cluster by using Era or register an existing source database with Era.

  4. Either use Era to provision another database server VM (target database server VM) on your Nutanix cluster or create a database server VM when you clone the source database.
