VIENNA, Nov. 9, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Plexxi, a pioneer of software-defined data center infrastructure, today announced seamless network integration with the Nutanix Enterprise Cloud Platform. Plexxi, a Nutanix Elevate Partner and Silver Sponsor of the Nutanix .NEXT Conference in Vienna, will demonstrate the power and agility of its Infrastructure Network Fabric to provide Nutanix customers with a single, scalable network that easily integrates with Nutanix Prism. The solution has received Nutanix Ready – Integrated verification, offering Nutanix administrators the network integration and control they need to natively manage their enterprise cloud deployment as a single, integrated system of scalable compute, networking, storage and virtualization.
"The Nutanix Enterprise Cloud Platform natively converges compute, virtualization and storage, giving IT teams freedom to focus on the applications and services that power their business," said Venugopal Pai, Vice President of Alliances and Business Development at Nutanix. "By taking advantage of our simple and open APIs, Plexxi's Nutanix Integration Pack extends our mission to make infrastructure invisible by adding integrated networking, enabling Nutanix customers to monitor their network using Nutanix Prism."
Plexxi's Infrastructure Network Fabric, under software control, fundamentally changes the scalability and economics for customers deploying the latest scale-out applications and infrastructure. With Plexxi, organizations can now deploy a single IP network that supports all workloads. 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.
"This integration marks a major milestone for the software defined data center," said Rich Napolitano, CEO of Plexxi. "Plexxi's software control is key to enabling networking with today's hyper-converged infrastructures. Our 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."
Plexxi Connect Integration Packs eliminate resource intensive, time-consuming system integration and testing efforts, providing off-the-shelf integration between Plexxi and industry-leading applications and infrastructure. Plexxi's Nutanix integration harvests all of the elements of the Enterprise Cloud Platform topology, including: hypervisors (Nutanix AHV or VMware ESXi), and Nutanix Controller Virtual Machine (CVM) information. As the environment evolves, Plexxi Control software dynamically re-provisions the Plexxi network fabric in response to virtual compute and storage events. This ensures the highest performance and service quality for diverse applications workloads, while making optimal use of networking resources. The Plexxi software also builds a graphical representation of the network topology within Nutanix Prism, and displays its state and status for quick and simple analysis of the network. All of this is done automatically through the Plexxi Connect Integration Pack for Nutanix.
Plexxi's software-defined fabric can run on the company's own purpose-built hardware, or on built-to-spec, 3rd-party hardware platforms from OEMs. In either case, software is at the core of these solutions, providing customers with the deployment flexibility and buying preferences that are critical to their business. Together Nutanix and Plexxi truly deliver on the promise of the software defined data center.
