Enterprise Strategy Group – ESG, recently completed a evaluation of Nutanix Cloud Platform for Enterprise Workloads and Databases, covering MS SQL Server, Oracle, SAS Analytics, Splunk, and VDI. The results compare performance from 2017 to 2021, and as you expect show some impressive improvements. One thing that shines through is the linear scalability and stability of the Nutanix platform. The performance you get with one node, you get each time you add a node, making performance and capacity scale easily without complications. You can access the full report here, this post will cover some of the brief highlights.
The report (download here) highlights that Nutanix Cloud Platform can simplify infrastructure supporting any enterprise workload or database, and provide consistent, repeatable, and linearly scalable performance with high availability. The elastic scalability and fractional consumption of the Nutanix Cloud Platform can benefit any type of workload, and create a cloud experience wherever a customer chooses to deploy it.
The following image displays the availability graph across Nutanix systems globally and demonstrates high levels of availability can be expected (not included in the report).
Two areas I would like to highlight from the report is the MS SQL Server and VDI Performance, both demonstrate the consistent performance and scalability of the Nutanix Cloud Platform, and low latency that can be expected.
As workloads are added, and nodes are scaled, overall performance increases and response times stay consistent. The report covers many more workloads and has special features to note applicable to big data workloads, such as SAS Analytics, Splunk or Elastic Search. I would recommend you download the full report (download here) and read through it, as it’s only 20 pages.
Enterprise workloads and databases need a solid underlying infrastructure to ensure optimal business results. The Nutanix Cloud Platform allows a customer to deploy the same consistent infrastructure in public cloud, co-lo, or on-prem and experience the same reliability and linear scalability. Choose your location, build your cloud, all on your terms.
