Nutanix has unveiled a new edge computing service. This is Xi IoT, which is part of the Xi Cloud Services. By combining core solutions with a streamlined approach, Xi IoT eliminates complexity and accelerates implementation, according to the company.

Under the current IoT model, large amounts of data are sent back from edge devices to a central cloud for processing. According to Nutanix, this limits users in making real-time, executable decisions based on edge intelligence.

However, the Xi IT platform provides local compute resources, machine inference and data services for real-time processing at the edge. The intelligently analyzed data of users can be securely transferred via Xi IoT Data Pipelines to a public or private cloud of your choice. In addition, both edge and core cloud deployments operate in the same data and management environment, allowing a clear view of the deployment.

It also eliminates the risk of security breaches due to human error by providing automatic, zero-touch setup and management of edge devices. Xi IoT’s advanced infrastructure and lifecycle management tool allows users to manage all their edge locations platform-independently.


It is possible for developers to set up a comprehensive set of popular APIs to use next-generation data science applications as container apps or as functions. These can be integrated into existing CI/CD pipelines, making it possible to make changes from one location.

“For large organizations, an edge strategy is essential to unite connectivity from edge to cloud, to quickly develop IoT applications, and to provide real-time analytics close to where the data is generated,” said Ashish Nadkarni, Group Vice President, Infrastructure Systems, Platforms and Technologies at IDC. “For companies looking for a competitive advantage, solutions such as Nutanix Xi IoT can help them lead the way and discover new opportunities to grow their organization.
