The Core Solution and How it works
Nutanix converges the entire datacenter stack, including compute, storage, storage networking, and virtualization. Complex and expensive legacy infrastructure is replaced by AOS running on state-of-the-art, industry-standard servers that enable enterprises to start small and scale one node at a time. Each server, also known as a node, includes Intel powered x86 or IBM Power hardware with flash SSDs and HDDs. Nutanix software running on each server node distributes all operating functions across the cluster for superior performance and resilience.
