Nutanix and Hewlett Packard expand their partnership by offering Nutanix Era, a multi-database operations and management solution, bundled with HPE ProLiant servers, as a service through HPE GreenLake.
The said cloud service enables customers to deploy applications and databases in minutes and benefit from the capabilities of the cloud while gaining the governance, visibility, and compliance of an on-premises environment.
“Customers want to simplify database operations and management to move away from IT siloes that can often lead to higher maintenance costs, security risks, and lack of flexibility to deploy and run solutions,” says HPE GreenLake Cloud Services senior vice president and general manager Keith White.
White claims: “By building on our successful collaboration with Nutanix, together the HPE GreenLake and the Nutanix Era database operations and management software solution will increase agility, simplify operations and cut costs by delivering a fully-managed cloud offering.”
According to Nutanix, customers using Nutanix Era reported a positive experience in increasing speed of database provisioning by 97%, reducing unplanned downtime to avoid average losses of $35,000 per hour, decreasing storage requirements for copies and backups by 60%, and reducing database administrators’ overtime work by 50%.
By combining Nutanix Era on HPE ProLiant servers, customers can transform database management with one cloud-ready platform. The solutions will allow customers to modernise, consolidate, and automate tasks across their databases and gain support for multi-database operations management, including Oracle Database, Microsoft SQL Server, MySQL, PostgresSQL, and MariaDB.
Tarkan Maner, Nutanix chief commercial officer, believes to see tremendous success in the partnership, and says Nutanix Era for databases provides one more opportunity to strengthen joint offerings and further serve customers.
“As customers are looking for solutions to help them in their journey to hybrid and multicloud, HPE and Nutanix deliver strong, integrated solutions to support them on their journey by providing performance, control, and security available as a full breadth of portfolio whether it is solely using HPE ProLiant DX series of servers for private clouds or combining with HPE GreenLake cloud services to run this environment as a managed cloud,” Tarkan explains.
According to Nutanix, their collaboration between HPE demonstrates the continued momentum and success to provide customers with managed hybrid cloud services. HPE and Nutanix says they have seen an approximate 80% year-on-year increase in ACV bookings during the first calendar quarter of 2021, including wins for HPE ProLiant DX servers, and HPE GreenLake with Nutanix.
Chris Lillie, CDW ServiceWorks, head of cloud operations, concludes: “We were looking for a solution that would quickly scale performance and capacity to adapt to our customers’ business demands and HPE GreenLake with Nutanix delivered a performant and reliable solution with lower up-front costs and day to day management overhead.”
