Aviatrix Cloud InterConnect (ACX) for Nutanix Enterprise Cloud

Aviatrix Cloud Interconnect (ACX) software and Nutanix Enterprise Cloud platform enable customers to seamlessly and securely extend their datacenter networks into Amazon Web Services (AWS), Microsoft Azure and other public cloud services.

By making cloud networking as fast, flexible and agile as cloud computing, Aviatrix and Nutanix enable enterprises to deploy and run their mission-critical workloads and data at any scale—across both private clouds and public clouds—without being limited by any component of their IT architecture.

Nutanix makes infrastructure invisible, elevating IT to focus on the applications and services that power their business. The Nutanix enterprise cloud platform leverages web-scale engineering and consumer-grade design to natively converge compute, virtualization and storage into a resilient, software-defined solution with rich machine intelligence. Nutanix has helped large and small IT organizations simplify their datacenter and gain predictable performance, linear scalability, and cloud-like infrastructure consumption. Nutanix Calm supercharges this with multi-cloud application-centric orchestration and automation.

Hybrid Cloud Networking challenges include:

  • Need a secure private IP connectivity from the datacenter to the public cloud VPCs without complex network re-design

  • Dynamically deploy and scale development and test environments in the public cloud in matter of minutes rather than weeks that it normally takes
  • Provide an always-on, reliable connectivity for backup to the public cloud

  • Dynamic just-in time connectivity to build elastic capacity for variable workload demands
Aviatrix Cloud InterConnect (ACX) software complements Nutanix Enterprise Cloud with these capabilities:
Deploy hybrid clouds in minutes.

Aviatrix brings one-click hybrid cloud networking to Nutanix datacenters, so that enterprises can dynamically set up, access and begin using public cloud infrastructure services within minutes, without the need for specialized networking expertise or command-line interface (CLI) knowledge.

Orchestrate hyper-converged hybrid environments through a single pane.

Nutanix Calm orchestration capabilities coupled with Aviatrix hybrid cloud networking technology allow enterprises to orchestrate compute, storage and secure network connectivity to applications through a single-pane management layer.

Overcome current limitations to running business-critical workloads in hybrid cloud environments.

The homogeneous architecture and seamless IT fabric provides a secure hybrid networking layer that allows enterprise applications to work easily across private and public clouds.
