Over at ZDNet, Larry Dignan gave a preview of Nutanix’s latest offers, as presented at the .NEXT conference. Nutanix is updating their network virtualization within their hyperconverged infrastructure setup. Specifically, their upcoming Prism software, set to release in January 2017, will allow a unified view into storage, server, and virtualization resource usage, with the ability to zoom into individual VMs.
The company also demoed their Acropolis tool under development, which allows for advanced governance of communication between applications, or microsegmentation. Nutanix is pushing the security implications of using a logical distribution of resources in the network that is abstracted from physical ones.
These announcements show Nutanix is not shying away from competing directly with VMWare NSX.
Converged infrastructure vendor Nutanix is adding more datacenter automation to its platform and expanding to include network visualization, security, and orchestration.
At its .NEXT Europe conference in Vienna, the company said it is taking its one-click approach to so-called micro segmentation, security, and network orchestration. Nutanix also expanded its application programming interface (API) roster.
