London, Greater London (PRWEB UK) 14 March 2013
While most businesses grow gradually, adding IT infrastructure in a piecemeal fashion, Google and Amazon had the requirement and budget to build vast data centres quickly and did so in a new and effective way. What they did was revolutionary: moving away from the traditional Storage Area Network (SAN) or Network Attached Storage (NAS) to a converged, modular, scalable architecture that is simple to manage, provision and to grow, yet still offers amazing performance.
From Virtual Desktops and Big Data to Cloud Computing and Disaster Recovery, the Nutanix Complete Cluster is a unique and exciting proposition. It offers businesses a platform to run these critical systems and applications by combining virtualisation hypervisors, server processing power and tiered storage in a single appliance.
Guy Brandon, Director at MBA IT believes that this simplified architecture is what businesses are looking for. “We talk to customers all day, every day about their business requirements and how their IT infrastructure can be adapted to meet those requirements. At the moment, everyone is talking about end user computing, or Virtual Desktop Infrastructure, VDI and if, how and when to include it in their strategy. Whilst VDI can bring huge benefits to businesses, it can also be complex, disruptive and time consuming to implement. With a Nutanix Complete Cluster at the back end, running the VDI solution, a major part of the process has been simplified.”
Nutanix has VMware ESXi and KVM hypervisors pre-installed, ready for the rapid deployment of virtual machines making it a perfect solution for organisations who want to build their own private cloud.
Alan Campbell, Regional Director for Nutanix in Western Europe believes that MBA IT is an ideal partner to take the Complete Cluster to market. “We need partners like MBA IT who are able to get on board to articulate the value of our converged infrastructure vision. They are talking to customers of the right size, in the right markets, who are putting plans in place for end user computing strategies, considering big data analysis techniques, or looking to build a private cloud to deliver apps and services to their users. Customers are bombarded with messages from vendors, so it can be comforting for them to speak to a partner that they trust in order to pick through the marketing messages and get a solution that works for them. MBA IT has really picked up the baton and are leading the way with Nutanix in the UK.”
