Nutanix Releases Certified Kubernetes Solution
April 17, 2019
Karbon is part of the Nutanix Cloud Native stack, bringing
production-ready Kubernetes, persistence for Kubernetes applications,
observability and monitoring for dynamic containers, and managed
databases in one simple to deploy and manage offering. With this
introduction, Nutanix customers will be able to leverage reliable,
automated, secure and efficient services together with the Nutanix
Enterprise Cloud Platform to develop and run both their virtual machine
and container-based applications on-premises.
This includes simple and fast deployment of Kubernetes in a private cloud, persistent block and file storage via CSI driver, observability for their cloud-native applications and, once available, S3-compatible storage — all delivered with modern simplicity using the Nutanix Enterprise Cloud Platform that includes:
•Nutanix Karbon: A simplified and production-ready Certified Kubernetes distribution that simplifies the provisioning, operations and lifecycle management of Kubernetes with a native experience. Karbon is included in the Nutanix Enterprise Cloud Platform.
•Nutanix Volumes & Files: One of the more challenging aspects of cloud native applications is persistence. With Nutanix’s Container Storage Interface (CSI) and Volumes & Files products, adding high-performance storage to Kubernetes is simplified.
•Nutanix Buckets: A software-defined object storage solution that will be able to non-disruptively scale-out while lowering overall costs. It’s designed with an S3-compatible REST API interface to handle from terabytes to petabytes of unstructured data. Customers using Buckets will be able to natively leverage erasure coding, compression, and deduplication to optimize their capacity utilization. This S3-compatible platform will be able to be leveraged as central storage for all DevOps use-cases. Buckets is expected to be generally available by summer of 2019.
•Nutanix Xi Epoch: An observability and monitoring service for cloud native applications that provides end-to-end real-time visibility into distributed application architecture, powered by 250+ technology native integrations. With Xi Epoch, customers gain insights into application, infrastructure, and orchestration management issues, enabling them to increase the reliability and performance of their Cloud Native applications.
•Nutanix Era: A database
administration tool that brings simplicity and invisible operations to
database provisioning and lifecycle management (LCM). With one-click
database provisioning and Copy Data Management (CDM) as its first
services, organizations can provision, clone, refresh, and backup their
databases to any point in time in just a few minutes.
