Today, we are thrilled to announce the general availability of Nutanix Cloud Clusters (NC2) on Microsoft Azure to simplify and accelerate the customer journey to the cloud. Using our Australia East (Sydney) Azure region, Nutanix customers can migrate and extend their workloads to Azure, without modification or retooling. With Nutanix Cloud Clusters on Azure, customers can leverage their existing Nutanix skills and tools, add Azure services such as security, identity, and analytics, and gain cost efficiencies by using their existing licenses for Azure deployment.
This move provides customers with the choice to run their workloads in a hybrid cloud environment, protecting their existing investments in Nutanix software while enabling them to leverage all the benefits of Microsoft Azure. With NC2 on Azure, customers can deploy and manage their workloads in their own Azure account and VNet, and manage Azure instances from Nutanix’s management interface. This keeps their operating model simple and consistent between Azure and on-premises, enabling customers to run hybrid workloads seamlessly across private clouds and Microsoft Azure without needing to re-architect their applications. This also brings lower total cost of ownership when compared to other cloud deployment solutions.
“Organizations are embracing hybrid multicloud to easily scale from on-prem to the public cloud, optimize costs for performant and secure workloads, and tap into a flexible subscription model,” said Rajiv Ramaswami, President and CEO of Nutanix. “NC2 on Azure gives our customers a frictionless on-ramp to Azure with consistent management of apps and data across their hybrid multicloud environment.”
Customers can also take advantage of Azure Hybrid Benefit as well as Extended Security Updates to improve cost, security, and efficiency. Nutanix customers will be able to port their existing term licenses to NC2 on Azure or get on-demand consumption of Nutanix software through the Azure Marketplace.
“While public cloud has solidified as a crucial investment for businesses, many customers need to run and manage workloads across public and private cloud environments,” said Scott Guthrie, Executive Vice President, Cloud + AI Group, Microsoft. “As well as consistency, NC2 on Azure reduces network latency and increases cost efficiency.”
Customers can also leverage NC2 on Azure to:
