Nutanix Releases Validated Reference Architecture for New VMware Horizon(TM) Suite

Nutanix Platform Converges Compute and Storage Resources to Deliver Virtual Desktops, Enterprise Data and Cloud Services With a Single Scalable Appliance

SAN JOSE, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 02/20/13 -- Nutanix (www.nutanix.com), the first company to offer a scale-out compute-and-storage solution, today published a comprehensive reference architecture that empowers virtualization and cloud teams to design and rapidly deploy the complete VMware Horizon™Suite on a single platform. Datacenter architects no longer have to build separate environments for delivering virtual desktops and enterprise data services. The Nutanix reference architecture for VMware Horizon Suite can provide scalable, high-performance and flexible datacenter infrastructure to meet end-user computing and cloud-based service needs.

VMware engineers have validated the Nutanix Reference Architecture to enable full interoperability and rapid time-to-value for Horizon Suite deployments. The technical blueprint provides a performance-optimized and flexible design that unifies the delivery and management of all virtual desktops, application catalog services and enterprise data offerings. VMware Horizon Suite components, including VMware Horizon™, VMware Horizon Workspace™ run seamlessly on a single Nutanix appliance to give users easy on-demand access to their applications using any device, from any location.

"Nutanix provides an all-in-one, converged platform that delivers a building block for the virtual workspace running on the software-defined datacenter," said Mason Uyeda, director of technical marketing, End-User Computing, VMware. "We are pleased to see Nutanix's reference architecture for VMware Horizon Suite™."

The Nutanix platform ships with VMware vSphere™ 5.1 pre-installed, the proven virtualization platform upon which VMware Horizon Suite is built. Enterprise IT managers can seamlessly and linearly scale their Nutanix-based infrastructure one node at a time. Unlike traditional compute and storage solutions, Nutanix provides a predictable and scalable infrastructure that can grow with the business potentially eliminating the need to overprovision the datacenter. And, because the Nutanix platform converges both compute and storage resources, IT teams can deploy a truly turnkey solution without having to re-configure or upgrade existing SAN or NAS storage systems.

In addition to detailing how all VMware Horizon Suite services can run seamlessly in a single Nutanix-powered infrastructure, the Nutanix Reference Architecture for Horizon Suite also includes guidance on how to integrate other datacenter services, such as VMware vCenter™ Operations Manager™, Active Directory, SQL Server and more. The document supports the entire Nutanix product family, including the recently introduced NX-3000 platform.

"We're excited to build on our success powering virtual desktops with VMware View, and extend that support to the complete VMware Horizon Suite," said Howard Ting, VP of Marketing at Nutanix. "Continuing our pattern of innovation, we're proud to be producing the industry's first RA for creating a single environment for delivering desktops, apps and data."

The Internet of Things will challenge the status quo of how IT and development organizations operate. Or will it? Certainly the fog layer of IoT requires special insights about data ontology, security and transactional integrity. But the developmental challenges are the same: People, Process and Platform and how we integrate our thinking to solve complicated problems. In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, Craig Sproule, CEO of Metavine, will demonstrate how to move beyond today's coding paradigm ...
The cloud market growth today is largely in public clouds. While there is a lot of spend in IT departments in virtualization, these aren’t yet translating into a true “cloud” experience within the enterprise. What is stopping the growth of the “private cloud” market? In his general session at 18th Cloud Expo, Nara Rajagopalan, CEO of Accelerite, explored the challenges in deploying, managing, and getting adoption for a private cloud within an enterprise. What are the key differences between wh...

The 19th Cloud Expo and 6th @ThingsExpo will take place on November 1-3, 2016, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA. "The Internet of Things brings trillions of dollars of opportunity to developers and enterprise IT, no matter how you measure it," stated Roger Strukhoff. "More importantly, it leverages the power of devices and the Interne...
"We work in the area of Big Data analytics and Big Data analytics is a very crowded space - you have Hadoop, ETL, warehousing, visualization and there's a lot of effort trying to get these tools to talk to each other," explained Mukund Deshpande, head of the Analytics practice at Accelerite, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at 18th Cloud Expo, held June 7-9, 2016, at the Javits Center in New York City, NY.
The idea of comparing data in motion (at the sensor level) to data at rest (in a Big Data server warehouse) with predictive analytics in the cloud is very appealing to the industrial IoT sector. The problem Big Data vendors have, however, is access to that data in motion at the sensor location. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Scott Allen, CMO of FreeWave, discussed how as IoT is increasingly adopted by industrial markets, there is going to be an increased demand for sensor data from the outermos...

In addition to all the benefits, IoT is also bringing new kind of customer experience challenges - cars that unlock themselves, thermostats turning houses into saunas and baby video monitors broadcasting over the internet. This list can only increase because while IoT services should be intuitive and simple to use, the delivery ecosystem is a myriad of potential problems as IoT explodes complexity. So finding a performance issue is like finding the proverbial needle in the haystack.
When people aren’t talking about VMs and containers, they’re talking about serverless architecture. Serverless is about no maintenance. It means you are not worried about low-level infrastructural and operational details. An event-driven serverless platform is a great use case for IoT. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Animesh Singh, an STSM and Lead for IBM Cloud Platform and Infrastructure, will detail how to build a distributed serverless, polyglot, microservices framework using open source tec...
