Nutanix has strengthened its offering for private and public clouds, allowing it to address multicloud computing more. The Xi Frame desktop-as-a-service solution is extended from the public to the private cloud. New features and additional availability regions for Xi Leap have also been added.

Xi Frame already gives Nutanix customers easy access to applications and virtual desktops in popular clouds like AWS and Azure. Any browser and all devices can be used. The new update, which runs on the Nutanix AHV hypervisor, allows customers to extend their desktop delivery to their private cloud.

The update integrates the Virtual Desktop Infrastructure services (VDI) with the company’s Enterprise Cloud platform. It will be possible to deliver Xi Frame desktops in multiple clouds simultaneously. They can also be managed from a single console for seamless control and management.

In addition to AWS and Azure, Xi Frame is now available worldwide for private cloud deployments with AHV. It used to take weeks to implement thousands of virtual desktops, but now it should be possible to do so within minutes. This enables users to improve the cost-effectiveness, speed and scalability of desktop delivery.

Xi Leap

Xi Leap, Nutanix’s cloud-based Disaster Recovery service, needs to expand the enterprise data center to the cloud. This should enable IT teams to bring together public and private clouds and deliver improved availability for critical data and applications.

In addition, business continuity is enhanced through a native integrated Disaster Recovery cloud service and management from a single console. That way, critical workloads in the data center and the cloud need to be protected. Xi Leap expands further beyond the currently available regions. It is expected that the service will also be available in Italy, Germany and Japan in the coming months.

Finally, Nutanix will update its Xi Beam solution, which brings customers cloud governance. The service will provide a real-time security compliance module designed to identify critical cloud infrastructure vulnerabilities and provide specific remediation advice. There will also be new security and compliance features that allow IT architects to resolve security risks before they harm the organization.

Availability

The new Nutanix Xi Frame for Nutanix Enterprise Cloud Platform deployments with AHV is available immediately. Xi Leap services are available in various regions, including the west and east of the United States and the United Kingdom. From the third quarter of this year onwards, the additional regions will be added.

Xi Beam is widely available for cloud governance and optimization. The new real-time security compliance capabilities are now available to some customers at an early stage. These options are expected to become generally available in the second quarter of this year.
