Nutanix, Inc has announced Nutanix Mine, a new open solution that integrates secondary storage operations with the Nutanix Enterprise Cloud Platform, delivering a complete platform for primary and secondary storage within the private cloud.
Through native integration with backup vendors Veeam, HYCU, Commvault, Veritas and Unitrends, customers will be able to manage their HCI environment and backup operations from a single management console, reducing the operational cost and complexity of standalone back-up and recovery solutions.
Mine is said to streamline overall deployment, and simplify the full lifecycle of data backup operations, including on-going management, scaling and troubleshooting.
With Nutanix Mine, customers will be able to converge secondary storage operations into the Nutanix Enterprise Cloud Platform to deliver intelligent data backup services for all business applications. Integrated with Nutanix’s native HCI data fabric that provides intelligent tiering and advanced data reduction capabilities, Mine will enable enterprises to choose the best data backup software for their organisation, optimised for their Nutanix HCI environment; reducing the time and expense of configuring standalone secondary storage solutions.
“The hyperconverged market’s rapid growth is largely attributable to its promise of modernising infrastructure and reducing complexity by eliminating silos within the data centre. But even as customers embraced HCI, the secondary storage silo persisted. With Nutanix Mine, customers will get all the benefits of collapsing this silo into a single platform — reduced management complexity, simplified operations and reduced TCO – without the requirement that they forgo the backup solution best suited for their business needs,” said Sunil Potti, Chief Product and Development Officer, Nutanix.
Nutanix Mine with Veeam, sold by Nutanix, and Nutanix Mine with HYCU are expected to be available in calendar Q3 of 2019. Nutanix Mine with Commvault, Veritas and Unitrends is expected to be available in a future release.
