CMI & Nutanix Team for Today’s DC
Recently the CMI team has seen a dramatic shift in how our customers approach IT. New technologies in the datacenter, moving into various cloud models (private, off-prem, hybrid, etc.) and ever-growing virtual environments have opened the door to a new set of challenges and opportunities. And while our clients undergo these transformations, we are constantly keeping a pulse on potential solutions to grow with our clients into the future.
It is with this in mind that CMI is excited to announce our new partnership with Nutanix, a hyper-converged platform that brings compute and storage into a single tier, offering predictable scalability and lower costs for virtualized environments. Nutanix took the benefits behind the Google file system and brought it to mainstream organizations, delivering a cost-effective “web-scale” solution which is software-defined for resilience, distributed across the cluster for linear scalability, self-healing, and rich with automation and analytics tools.
Using their hyper-converged technology, we’ve seen Nutanix help clients increase datacenter efficiency and lower capital and operating expenses while maximizing performance and delivering linear scalability. Some of the top workloads that take advantage of this technology are:
- Virtual Desktop Initiatives (VDI)
- Big Data
- Server Virtualization
- Disaster Recovery (DR)
- Enterprise Branch Offices

And if you’d like to learn more about the Software-Defined Datacenter, this link brings you to a free soft copy of “Software-Defined Storage for Dummies”. This book discusses how storage is evolving to become an on-demand service running on affordable, off-the-shelf x86 hardware and how to address current storage challenges while saving money.
And if web-scale, hyper-convergence sounds like a fit for you, give us a call – we’re here to help.
