In the rapidly changing work from home world you need agile applications and infrastructures. RedHat has built a great containerized platform for agile applications in OpenShift. To get the most out of the OpenShift platform you need a great scalable and highly available infrastructure. This is where Nutanix comes in and the combination of the two is a cloud you control with the application flexibility you need, no matter where it’s hosted.
Nutanix provides an on premises or cloud based linearly scalable infrastructure platform that is suitable for running any application. Nutanix AOS software and AHV Hypervisor can group together industry leading server technology to create a scale out cluster of resources. Performance scales as you scale node numbers. Availability is assured by the underlying infrastructure software, which ensures no single points of failure. The actual deployment can be in your datacenter, a public cloud, or the hosted environment of your choice. Deployment of the infrastructure takes minutes, then you can quickly get RedHat OpenShift up and running.
Unlike many public cloud environments that only provide 99.5% availability in their SLA’s, Nutanix AOS software can provide 99.999% or above availability, as measured across the global fleet of customer clusters, which is depicted above. If you wish to deploy containerized applications on top of such an scalable and available infrastructure, you could get above 6 nine’s of availability, which is great for many types of critical applications. Smart applications, combined with smart infrastructure, you get significantly higher availability, to go along with your scalable performance.
If you’d like to see how to get RedHat OpenShift up and running in your environment, one of my colleagues, Marcel, has written up the steps here – https://ntnx.nl/marcel-kleinenutanix-com/red-hat-openshift-on-nutanix/. I recommend you check out this article and give it a try.
You can architect and deploy a responsive, cost effective, and worry free enterprise environment, suitable for even the most critical apps, and deploy in minutes. You can deploy this environment wherever you choose, public cloud, in your datacenter, in a hosted environment. All while achieving consistent and predictable SLA’s. No need to compromise when you want agility, availability, and scale. RedHat OpenShift, Nutanix AOS and Nutanix AHV are a powerful combination for the next generation of apps to power your business.
