  • It’s true, SAP can be virtualized – and it’s not difficult. Recorded: May 2 2017 50 mins
    Krishna Kattumadam, Sr. Director, Solutions & Engineering - Sachin Chheda, Director Product Marketing, Nutanix
    Virtualization, hyperconvergence, and the cloud bring a host of benefits to IT landscapes, including management simplicity, enhanced resource utilization, better availability, and increased business agility. So what options are available for bringing these advantages to your business-critical SAP landscapes? And what considerations are involved when migrating your two or three-tier SAP architecture to a virtualized cloud platform built on hyperconverged infrastructure?

    In this webinar, we’ll show you how to implement an optimized, protected and high performing cloud platform on HCI across your SAP landscape, including NetWeaver, S/4HANA and RDBMSs. You will hear real-world customer experiences and learn about:

    • The technical details involved in a virtualized deployment of SAP Business Suite
    • Performance, availability, and scalability best practices for using HCI to build a private cloud solution
    • How to simplify and speed system copy and refresh with a web-scale architecture to benefit development, testing, quality assurance, copying, and migration in your SAP landscape
  • Next Gen Protection and Availability for your Critical On-prem and Cloud Apps Recorded: Apr 19 2017 33 mins
    Stephen Firmes - Commvault; John Margiolas - Nutanix
    Business-critical applications like Oracle E-Business Suite and Database, SAP and Microsoft SQL Server, Exchange and SharePoint are the lifeblood of today’s non-stop enterprises. Not only is it important to optimize how you run them for your unique performance, cost and management parameters: it is equally important to ensure they will be available, and that data is not lost or unrecoverable in the event of something going wrong.

    The traditional DP/DR approaches for protecting enterprise apps and data are not meeting organizations’ needs. Nutanix and Commvault have collaborated to bring a modern, integrated solution that can work across both on-premises and the cloud and deliver the flexibility to tailor recovery SLAs to match the workload requirements.

    Attend this session with Nutanix and Commvault experts and ask your questions to:
    • Gain an understanding of the benefits of the integration of Nutanix and Commvault for running and protecting important applications and databases
    • Learn about a spectrum of technologies, old and new, that can be leveraged to tailor protection and recovery to meet your unique needs
    • Hear about real-world experiences from organizations who enhanced protection, disaster recovery and management for their enterprise apps and data across private, hybrid and public clouds

  • Bringing Hyperconverged Networking to the Enterprise Cloud Recorded: Dec 15 2016 35 mins
    Steve Marchesano, Director, Solutions Marketing, Plexxi - Amanda Martinez, Business Development, Nutanix
    Plexxi’s software-defined network fundamentally changes the scalability and economics for customers deploying the latest scale-out applications and hyperconverged infrastructure. With Plexxi, organizations can deploy a single IP network that supports all workloads. On a per-workload basis, administrators can: define workload policies, allocate path bandwidth, and isolate workload traffic across the Plexxi fabric, eliminating the need to deploy multiple, separate networks.

    The ability to support multiple, diverse workloads on a single IP network fabric and control them through software is a fundamental requirement that Plexxi clearly understands and uniquely delivers. Plexxi’s software control plane, programmatic APIs, and pre-built Connect Integration Packs deliver zero-touch integration and dynamic, Nutanix-specific, workload optimizations that simplify ongoing management.

    This webinar will discuss the ease-of-use, tight integration, and cost benefits of deploying Plexxi as the scale-out network for Nutanix environments. You’ll learn how Plexxi’s next-generation design fundamentally change the speed and economics of deploying Nutanix through:

    •Single, flat network topology for simple deployment and scaling
    •Dynamic, event-driven provisioning and allocation of network resources
    •Per-workload control for optimized performance and security
    •Building block scalability of network resources

    We look forward to you joining our Plexxi/Nutanix webinar, as we look at how Plexxi brings the benefits of hyperconverged networking to the Nutanix Enterprise Cloud Platform.
  • Splunk: To Virtualize or Not to Virtualize Recorded: Dec 13 2016 48 mins
    Chris Brown, Technical Solutions Manager, Nutanix
    Is your Splunk deployment or upgrade going to be hosted on bare metal, a virtualized platform, or the cloud? The cloud has often been chosen for agility and flexibility, but on-prem deployments are experiencing a resurgence. Data security concerns and the desire to bring the analysis engine as close to the data source as possible are key influencers in the on-prem trend. In these cases, bare metal deployments are commonly chosen due to cost or complexity of hypervisors, however with bare metal Splunk loses out on all the quality of life improvements users have come to expect with virtualization.

    This webinar explores the benefits of virtualizing Splunk on the Nutanix enterprise cloud platform, taking the complexity out of managing virtualized infrastructure for Splunk, allowing Splunk experts to spend more time extracting insight from data. Nutanix allows Splunk to take full advantage of server virtualization without the limitations of other solutions and combines this with the agility and flexibility of public clouds. By ensuring data is accessed locally by all Splunk indexers, Nutanix eliminates the “I/O Blender” effect that can plague conventional, bare metal infrastructure.

    Register to see how to architect the best environment for Splunk with deployments that can scale to handle increasing data ingest rates and ever-increasing expectations for high performance. Learn useful tips on how to fully leverage the Nutanix distributed storage fabric, with details on data tiering, EC-X erasure coding, disk balancing, and more. We’ll also show how Splunk on Nutanix ensures:

    - The ability to ingest GBs of data per day
    - Quick search capabilities for mission critical applications
    - Ability to support growth in data ingest rates
    - Ease of deployment and management
    - Self-contained deployments for data security and privacy
