Nutanix has announced the release of the first cloud-agnostic multi-database management solution. Era 2.0 extends the Nutanix database management solution across clouds and clusters to simplify operations, with increased scale and reduced costs for IT and database teams. Additionally, Nutanix announced expanded support for Postgres and SAP HANA as well as a joint solution, powered by Era 2.0, with HCL, a leading global technology company.
Era enables IT, teams, to deliver Database as a Service by bringing one-click simplicity and invisible operations to database provisioning and lifecycle management. It’s a multi-database solution with support for Oracle, Microsoft SQL Server, MySQL, and MariaDB, in addition to Postgres and SAP HANA.
Bala Kuchibhotla, SVP & General Manager, Nutanix Era, Databases and Business Critical Apps at Nutanix said, “companies are increasingly looking for technology solutions to support their hybrid and multi-cloud strategies but, while some vendors deliver application mobility, we haven’t seen a lot of innovation when it comes to multi-cloud database management. Nutanix Era now delivers on our vision to provide a cloud-agnostic multi-database management solution to truly unlock the promise of hybrid and multi-cloud.”
Kalyan Kumar, Corporate Vice President and CTO, IT Services, HCL Technologies added, “at HCL, we help our customers to accelerate their data and infrastructure modernisation journey with a secure, scalable, and cloud-ready database as a service. Our industry-acclaimed services powered by the Nutanix Era & HCI platform will provide enterprises with a world-class automated database platform. We have a long-standing relationship with Nutanix, and, with SKALE DB, we will move forward to help our customers optimise their data resources and support their digital initiatives.”
Era delivers simplified database management by combining the scalability and performance of Nutanix’s HCI software with the flexibility of cloud-ready database services.
With this announcement, the company delivers:
- Simplified Database Management Across Distributed Clusters and Clouds
- Support for SAP HANA at Scale
- 24x7 Support of PostgreSQL on Nutanix
- Fully Managed Database as a Service Solution with HCL Technologies
Dom Poloniecki, General Manager, Sales, Western Europe and Sub-Saharan Africa at Nutanix said, “securing, protecting and managing information throughout its lifecycle takes time and distracts our customers from driving real value from that information for their businesses. Nutanix Era reduces the overhead of the administration of data and databases through automation, enabling our customers to build once and deploy anywhere across multiple clouds and datacentres, giving time and budget back so they can focus on innovating and driving business value from the stored information.”
Mike Leone, Senior Analyst, ESG added, “with data sprawl where it is today, database management has gotten more complex than ever before. Organisations of all sizes are looking for solutions to simplify database operations, from initial deployment to ongoing management and maintenance. Era 2.0 delivers a cloud-agnostic solution that can simplify database operations and help customers unlock the much-needed value of data mobility.”
