Nutanix extends storage services to its hybrid cloud platform
Customers will now be able to deploy an easy-to-use storage fabric across their cloud environments. Nutanix hopes this will move IT teams closer to a true hybrid cloud operating model. 

New features include cloud tiering for Nutanix Objects storage, hybrid cloud file storage, and simplified disaster recovery. 

“IT teams around the world are quickly moving to hybrid environments and they’re looking for technology solutions to help them facilitate this transition, to help them manage disparate technologies and simplify operations,” said Rajiv Mirani, chief technology officer at Nutanix. “We recently extended our hyperconverged infrastructure software to public cloud with the launch of Nutanix Clusters to help companies do just that. Now the focus is on strengthening the overall platform, including delivering an easy-to-use, scale out storage fabric across their different cloud environments.”
