Solution Advantages

  • Highest compute density - More performance in less space. Intel’s thermal design allows for use of more powerful CPU in a 2U 4-node form factor delivering more performance in less space. This extra performance allows for more virtual servers and better quality of services for customer application needs.
  • Designed, validated, and certified to work seamlessly together Intel and Nutanix. Enterprise market ready solution saves time and money that is otherwise spent on system design, configuration, and testing.
  • Configuration flexibility without risk. Intel® Data Center Blocks (Intel® DCB) are available as configured to order. Workloads from mid-market to enterprises have been tested with an optimized range of configurations to meet common use cases including enterprise applications and Server Virtualization. This helps to remove the risk of ordering the right system optimized for the right workload.
  • Built on the latest technology. Intel® DCB’s are validated using multiple server components including Intel® Server Boards, Intel® Xeon® Scalable processors with Intel® Optane™ SSD’s, Intel® Optane™ persistent memory, NVM Express (NVMe*), Intel® Ethernet, and Intel® Server Chassis for a scalable and reliable server system.
  • Faster time to market. Allows businesses to focus on value-added services and capitalize on more opportunities, which provides a competitive edge.
  • More resources to invest in differentiation and new markets. Intel® DCB’s combined with Nutanix’s support provides a more complete, integrated offering that is an optimized, validated, and certified solution to accelerate entry into new markets.

Announcing the Nutanix and Intel Innovation Lab

Nutanix and Intel have collaborated to establish physical labs and dedicated headcount at both companies for the purpose of accelerating the adoption of Intel® technologies from across the IA portfolio within the Nutanix software stack. Projects will fall into three categories:

  • Acceleration – Acceleration of the productization of a new technology feature in the short term that has a use case that is well understood.
  • Technology Adoption – Deeper exploration of new classes of Nutanix applications, or improvement of platform capabilities, that have an unknown implementation risk.
  • Innovation – Exploration of new or emerging Intel® technologies that have a use case with higher risk but have the potential to be disruptive in the market.

“By launching this Innovation Lab with Intel, we are actively working on critical projects to better equip our customers and have already made progress in several priority areas,” Tarkan Maner, Chief Commercial Officer, Nutanix
