Nutanix and Hewlett Packard Enterprise have announced an expanded partnership to accelerate hybrid cloud and multi cloud adoption by offering Nutanix Era, a multi-database operations and management solution, bundled with HPE ProLiant servers, as a service through HPE GreenLake. The fully managed cloud service enables customers to deploy applications and databases in minutes and benefit from the agile, elastic and pay-per-use 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. 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,” said Keith White, Senior Vice President and General Manager, HPE GreenLake Cloud Services, Hewlett Packard Enterprise.
Customers using Nutanix Era reported a positive experience in increasing speed of database provisioning by 97 per cent, reducing unplanned downtime to avoid average losses of US$ 35,000 per hour, decreasing storage requirements for copies and backups by 60 per cent, and reducing database administrator’s overtime work by 50 per cent. By combining Nutanix Era on HPE ProLiant servers, the world’s most trusted servers offering high-performance, scalability and versatility to run a range of workloads, and delivering the solution as a cloud service through HPE GreenLake, 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, PostgresQL and MariaDB.
“We continue to see tremendous success in our partnership, and HPE GreenLake with Nutanix Era for databases provides one more opportunity to strengthen our joint offerings and further serve customers. As customers are looking for solutions to help them in their journey to hybrid and multi cloud, 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’s 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,” said Tarkan Maner, Chief Commercial Officer, Nutanix.
