JOHANNESBURG – August 25, 2015 – South African owned integrated solutions specialist Intuate Group announces the signing of a partner agreement with San Jose, California based Nutanix, the next-generation enterprise computing company.
Nutanix delivers invisible infrastructure for next-generation enterprise computing, elevating IT to focus on the applications and services that power their business. The company’s software-driven Xtreme Computing Platform natively converges compute, virtualization and storage into a single solution to drive simplicity in the datacenter. Using Nutanix, customers benefit from predictable performance, linear scalability and cloud-like infrastructure consumption.
“This partnership will bring Intuate Group clients cutting-edge solutions for their data centres, allowing their businesses to grow as and when they need to with a simplified management approach to compute, storage and network connectivity without the complexity associated when building scalable IT environments,” says Mark Edwards, director and CTO at Intuate Group.
IT is asked to do more, faster and at lower costs. Thus, new approaches are required to rapidly deliver business applications and IT services while driving down overall TCO. IT needs next-generation data centre infrastructure that delivers cloud-like economics and agility, but with the security and reliability of on-premise solutions.
Hyperconverged infrastructure natively integrates compute and storage into a single x86-based server deployed in scale-out clusters. It reduces power and space, and dramatically eliminates storage complexity. Nutanix hyperconverged solutions are built using web-scale technologies and architectures that originated in large Internet and cloud companies, such as Google, Facebook and Amazon.
Nutanix hyperconverged solutions are totally software-defined with no reliance on special purpose hardware for resilience, performance and availability, allowing for new capabilities without hardware upgrades. Data, metadata and operations are distributed across the entire cluster, reducing performance bottlenecks and enabling predictable scalability.
Other features include a self-healing system, which is designed to tolerate component failures through fault isolation and automatic recovery without bringing down the overall system; and extensive automation and rich system-wide monitoring for data-driven efficiency, combined with REST-based programmatic interfaces for integration with data centre management tools.
“Creating a strong network of partners is an essential element of Nutanix’s growth,” said Paul Ruinaard, regional sales manager, Sub-Saharan Africa, at Nutanix. “Intuate Group is known for its ability to deliver functionality and performance to local clients, and we are delighted that Nutanix solutions will now form part of that offering in the South African market.”
