Nutanix, Google Cloud Partner Up
June 29, 2017
a result of the partnership, joint customers
will be able to deploy and manage both
cloud-based and traditional enterprise
applications as a unified public cloud
service, while blending the Nutanix
environment with Google Cloud Platform (GCP).
Google and Nutanix will work together to
address the technology opportunities for
building and operating hybrid clouds that
combine the best of private cloud
architectures and scalable public cloud
•One-Click Hybrid Operations with Nutanix Calm™ for GCP enabling a single control plane for managing applications between GCP and Nutanix cloud environments. Traditional and cloud-native applications can be provisioned into GCP or Nutanix cloud environments with a single click, and migrated between the two cloud environments seamlessly. With Nutanix Calm, applications are modeled as simple, repeatable application blueprints that can be triggered with a single click and easily migrated across Nutanix and GCP environments.
•Nutanix Xi™ Cloud Services on GCP enabling Nutanix customers to natively extend their datacenter environment into GCP and providing a unified fabric that will be able to deliver both traditional Mode 1 and modern Mode 2 applications to make lift-and-shift operations between private and public clouds easier. For example, enterprises could leverage a Xi Cloud Services Disaster Recovery running in GCP, and then run BigQuery analytics against the full application data set without expensive, repetitive data migration operations.
•Nutanix Enterprise Cloud OS with built-in
support for Kubernetes® enabling
container-based applications to be deployed,
managed and scaled in a Nutanix Enterprise
Cloud. A joint solution combining Kubernetes,
Google Container Engine (GKE) and Acropolis
Container Services (ACS) can provide an
enterprise-grade environment for containers,
including scalable persistent storage
services for stateful application workloads.
Cloud managers can quickly self-provision
Kubernetes via a pre-defined application
blueprint with Nutanix Calm, and instantiate
containerized applications in either Google
Cloud or a Nutanix-powered environment.
