Nutanix has announced Nutanix Mine, an open platform that integrates secondary storage operations with the Nutanix Enterprise Cloud Platform, delivering an integrated platform for primary and secondary storage within the private cloud.

Through native integration Veeam, HYCU, Commvault, Veritas and Unitrends, customers will be able to manage their HCI environment and backup operations from a single management console, reducing the operational cost and complexity of standalone back-up and recovery solutions.

As companies modernise their datacentre with HCI to realize the simplicity, performance and scalability needed to run modern applications, their backup and data protection strategies have remained siloed from their core datacentre environment. With Nutanix Mine, customers will be able to converge secondary storage operations into the Nutanix Enterprise Cloud Platform to deliver intelligent data backup services for all business applications.

Integrated with Nutanix’s native HCI data fabric that provides tiering and data reduction capabilities, Mine will enable enterprises to choose the best data backup software for their organisation, optimised for their Nutanix HCI environment; reducing the time and expense of configuring standalone secondary storage solutions.

“The hyperconverged market’s rapid growth is largely attributable to its promise of modernising infrastructure and reducing complexity by eliminating silos within the datacentre. But even as customers embraced HCI, the secondary storage silo persisted,” said Sunil Potti, chief product and development officer, Nutanix. “With Nutanix Mine, customers will get all the benefits of collapsing this silo into a single platform - reduced management complexity, simplified operations and reduced TCO - without the requirement that they forgo the backup solution best suited for their business needs.”
