The Modern Data-Center: Why Nutanix Customers are Replacing Their NetApp Storage

Several Nutanix customers shared with Taneja Group why they switched from traditional NetApp storage to the hyperconverged Nutanix platform. Each customer talked about the value of hyperconvergence versus a traditional server/networking/storage stack, and the specific benefits of Nutanix in mission-critical production environments.

Hyperconverged systems are a popular alternative to traditional computing architectures that are built with separate compute, storage, and networking components. Nutanix turns this complex environment into an efficient, software-based infrastructure where hypervisor, compute, storage, networking, and data services run on scalable nodes that seamlessly scale across massive virtual environments.  

The customers we spoke with came from very different industries, but all of them faced major technology refreshes for legacy servers and NetApp storage. Each decided that hyperconvergence was the right answer, and each chose the Nutanix hyperconvergence platform for its major benefits including scalability, simplicity, value, performance, and support. The single key achievement running through all these benefits is “Ease of Everything”: ease of scaling, ease of management, ease of realizing value, ease of performance, and ease of upgrades and support. Nutanix simply works across small clusters and large, single and multiple datacenters, specialist or generalist IT, and different hypervisors.

The datacenter is not static. Huge data growth and increasing complexity are motivating IT directors from every industry to invest in scalable hyperconvergence. Given Nutanix benefits across the board, these directors can confidently adopt Nutanix to transform their data-centers, just as these NetApp customers did.

Converging Hyperconvergence with Cloud: HyperGrid Rolls Out the Future of IT Today

A recent Taneja Group survey on IT infrastructure shows that Hyperconvergence is quickly becoming the preferred datacenter architecture of choice for traditionally oriented datacenters. Today well over half of IT decision-makers want to transition off legacy silo stacks of servers, storage, networking and complicated layers of integrating protocols into more seamless, more ideally cloud-like pools of easily and dynamically composable resources.

Furthermore, these IT organizations are discovering that in the transition to an on-premise modular, plug-and-play infrastructure they can also readily take advantage of hybrid cloud options and benefits. In fact, looking at it from the cloud side, HCI architectures are also attractive to many kinds of service providers who themselves desire a scalable, low OPEX infrastructure. 

The business and IT benefits of both hyperconvergence and hybrid cloud are undeniable. Who wouldn’t want better, faster, and cheaper? The IT dream for years has been to be able to host data and applications on-site as required, but when desired, transparently leverage cloud services – for cost optimization, bursting, DR, global access, mobile and web app support, etc.. Here at Taneja Group we’ve been looking for emerging solutions that demonstrate further evolution in IT architectures by further converging HyperConverged infrastructure with hybrid cloud operations.

Enter HyperGrid, a re-born Gridstore, delivering on just that vision.
