Mumbai: Nutanix, Inc. a leader in enterprise cloud computing, today announced new updates to Beam which extend its cost visibility and optimization capabilities into on-prem deployments. With these new updates, Nutanix customers can get full visibility and insight into the entirety of their infrastructure environment, including public and private clouds, so they can choose the right cloud for every application. Applications that are more predictable, such as data back-up, databases and enterprise applications can be more cost-effective when operating in private clouds, while less predictable workloads like mobile/digital and IoT services can be more suitable for public cloud infrastructure. Beam will also now provide a global multi-cloud view so customers can visualize cloud spend patterns from a single dashboard, making it easier to make decisions which save their business money and ensure compliance with regulations.
According to a recent survey from IDC, “80% of customers report repatriating workloads from public cloud environments” and “the complexity of managing an increasingly disaggregated application portfolio across multiple landing zones is driving a sharper focus on TCO and performance for discrete elements.”
As organizations focus on wrangling public cloud deployments to gain more visibility into what is being consumed, existing private cloud deployments, including potential cost savings, are often ignored, resulting in an incomplete picture of a company’s enterprise infrastructure. Beam will now provide customers with cost visibility into Nutanix software licenses so they can understand the cost associated with their Nutanix private cloud environments, as well as with public cloud deployments on popular cloud platforms. In addition to having complete visibility across the entirety of their public cloud consumption, Nutanix customers will now be able to see how much they are spending on each Nutanix cluster they’ve set up and get advance notification when they need to add more software based on current consumption trends, all within a single management dashboard. This global view will finally enable customers to manage their entire IT infrastructure environment.
“We’re growing at an aggressive pace and with a large public cloud footprint, making sure that we have granular visibility and fine-grained control is crucial to ensuring we do not overspend,” said Anuj Gupta, CEO, Hitachi Systems Micro Clinic. “As we doubled our cloud deployments, Nutanix Beam identified so many savings that we saw no increase in our overall spend. We’re so excited to have that same visibility in our future on-prem deployments to ensure complete cost optimization across our multi-cloud infrastructure.”
