About Nutanix AHV
It is not surprising that managing large enterprises and ensuring that everything runs smoothly across all data centers is an onerous task. However, hyper-convergence infrastructures tend to be one of the most efficient solutions to handling massive amounts of data. Nutanix, an American hyper-converged infrastructure software company, developed AHV to serve as an enterprise-ready hypervisor geared for the most-demanding enterprise workloads.
Nutanix AHV is built with Hyper-Converged Infrastructure (HCI), which integrates computing, storage, security, virtualization, and networking to meet demanding enterprise needs. It offers integrated virtualization, operational insights, management, app mobility, and security. Also, AHV is included in the Nutanix enterprise cloud OS stack. With the help of AHV, it becomes easier to build and maintain scalable, resource-efficient data centers.
Components of Nutanix AHV
The main component of AHV is Nutanix Acropolis, an operating system that allows creation of flexible high-performance HCIs. Nutanix Acropolis is free and compatible with VMware, Hyper-V, and XenServer hypervisors.
There are three versions of Nutanix Acropolis OS: Starter, Pro, and Ultimate. The Starter version comes with basic HCI configuration for small deployments. As expected, the Pro version includes everything in the Standard version with increased limitations; it is best for medium-size deployments. The Ultimate version is the complete suite for deploying heavy applications. The suite ensures high-performance of multi-site deployments.
These non-exhaustive AHV features are listed using vSphere terminologies:
- Management: Native high-availability of all management components and full-stack visibility (from hypervisor to hardware firmware)
- Management: Supports ADS, Nutanix’s version of DRS
- Upgrades: Single-click to upgrade hypervisor and EVC support for processing units from different families
- Backups: Change block tracking
- Network: Micro-segmentation
- Replication: Provides stretch and async settings
- VM Functions: Image/template management, VM snapshots, Cloning, VMotion
Now, these are the main features of Nutanix AHV solution for enterprise businesses.
