Nutanix has announced the general availability of its Certified Kubernetes solution, Nutanix Karbon, which is part of the Nutanix Cloud Native stack, bringing production-ready Kubernetes, persistence for Kubernetes applications, observability and monitoring for dynamic containers, and managed databases in one simple to deploy and manage offering.
With this introduction, Nutanix customers will be able to leverage reliable, automated, secure and efficient services together with the Nutanix Enterprise Cloud Platform to develop and run both their virtual machine and container-based applications on-premises.
According to IDC, the container infrastructure software market is forecasted to grow from US$ 131.1 million in 2017 to US$ 1.55 billion in 2022, with most of the growth coming from on-premises deployments. Though much of the adoption to date has been with web-scale companies, it is now beginning to expand into enterprises.
“We have taken simplicity to a new level. Enterprises can now use Karbon to deploy and operate Kubernetes with a cloud-like experience in their private data centre – without having to master building and maintaining Kubernetes. As enterprises seek to remain relevant in a digital world, Nutanix will be there to help them modernize their applications, increase software development speed and ultimately add greater value for their customers,” said Neville Vincent, VP A/NZ, ASEAN and India, Nutanix.
“Leveraging Nutanix Karbon, we can deploy a Kubernetes cluster in just a few minutes. Prior to Karbon, this process was complex, tedious and very time-consuming. Now, we can focus more on our cloud native applications and not worry about the Kubernetes infrastructure,” said Zach Hilliard, Senior Director of SREs at Cyxtera.
