Scale easily: add and remove capacity in your environment.
Are you curious to know what you will pay per month using Nutanix as a Service?
Use the Agisko high-end data center rather than opening a secondary one of your own.
Keep operating costs low, and only pay to reserve capacity in our data center without using it. Example: Disaster Recovery.
Upgrade your infrastructure as your business expands without upfront investments. Example: Infrastructure as a Service.
Stop searching; we've collected the most frequent questions about data centers, HCI, and private and public clouds.
NaaS allows you to leverage Nutanix's hyperconverged infrastructure without the upfront investment and burden of maintenance. It offers scalability, automation, and cost-efficient disaster recovery, making it a flexible and cost-effective solution.
NaaS offers cost-efficient disaster recovery using Nutanix technology. You only pay to reserve capacity in our data center when needed, keeping operating costs low. This "pay-as-you-go" approach ensures you're not wasting resources when capacity is reserved but not actively used.
Our network seamlessly connects data centers and guarantees uninterrupted internet access. Here's how: We maintain:
Additionally, our network features redundant and high-performance dark-fiber routes entering our facilities from various points. This geographical diversity safeguards against disruptions and facilitates seamless data center connections.
To optimize capacity, we employ advanced multiplexing techniques (CWDM/DWDM) that support multiple protocols, up to 100 GbE and 32 Gbps FC, all over a single fiber. This enhances data transfer capabilities for modern applications.
While we highly recommend utilizing our redundant network for optimal performance and reliability, you also have the flexibility to connect to a provider of your choosing based on availability within the data center.
Denial of service attacks overload targeted systems or resources by inundating them with unnecessary requests, thereby preventing legitimate requests from being fulfilled.
DDoS attacks involve flooding the victim with incoming traffic from numerous diverse sources. Effectively mitigating this type of attack necessitates employing advanced strategies. Merely attempting to block a single source proves inadequate due to the involvement of multiple sources.
Typically, the scope of the data center services is limited to providing housing or colocation space to house your servers. This can be a single rack unit or multiple racks, aisles, or even multiple rooms. Below is an overview of the services that are part of this offering:
One of the most significant added values of using the Agisko data center services is that these can be combined with our other service offerings. These offerings include:
Combining the data center services with our other service offerings results in a total solution offering.
A data center is a specialized facility designed to accommodate critical components such as computing resources, storage systems, and networking equipment. While these components are essential, they merely represent the visible layer of a contemporary data center's intricate architecture.
Beneath the surface, a sophisticated network of support infrastructure operates silently, playing a pivotal role in meeting the rigorous service level agreements demanded by large corporate datacenters.
Generally, we can categorize data centers into four primary types:
Enterprise data centers are exclusively owned and operated by the organizations they serve. They are meticulously tailored to meet the specific needs of businesses, whether it's a retail giant handling millions of transactions or a tech company managing vast data repositories.
In this arrangement, a company retains ownership of its data center, but the day-to-day management is entrusted to a specialized third-party provider. This model is ideal for businesses looking to concentrate on their core operations while delegating the intricacies of IT maintenance.
Colocation data centers offer businesses the option to rent space within a larger data center facility, typically in the form of racks or cabinets. This approach provides access to top-tier infrastructure and connectivity without requiring significant upfront capital investment.
Example: Consider Nutanix as a Service (NaaS).
Cloud data centers are entirely managed by external cloud service providers. Businesses can lease data storage, computing power, or software services on a scalable, on-demand basis, eliminating the need for extensive in-house infrastructure.
Hyperconverged infrastructure represents a software-driven architectural framework that unifies computing, virtualization, and storage components into a single, integrated system.
HCI offers a multitude of advantages for modern businesses. It streamlines data center operations, replacing the traditionally complex mix of hardware and software components from various vendors with a cohesive, software-defined solution.
Apart from hyperconverged infrastructure (HCI), you'll also find converged infrastructure, both being ways to approach datacenter management.
But what are the differences between the two?
Hyperconverged infrastructure software offers a more flexible and scalable solution that can be deployed across multiple server hardware solutions and emphasizes cloud integration.
It enables organizations to tailor solutions to specific needs and efficiently manage diverse on-premises, cloud, and edge deployments.
In contrast, converged infrastructure relies on pre-integrated appliances from a single vendor, simplifying initial deployment but potentially limiting hardware choices and cloud-related functionalities.
Hyperconverged infrastructure (HCI) is an on-premises solution that integrates computing, storage, and networking resources into a single hardware platform. It's ideal for organizations with specific hardware requirements or data localization needs.
In contrast, the cloud offers scalable, off-site resources accessed over the internet. It's flexible, pay-as-you-go, and suits businesses seeking agility and scalability without the burden of managing physical hardware.
Foundation for Hybrid Cloud: HCI can be foundational for building a hybrid cloud environment. Its flexibility and scalability make it ideal for creating a private cloud within an organization's data center.
Seamless data mobility: HCI solutions are designed to work seamlessly with public cloud providers. This means that data and applications running on HCI can be easily migrated to the public cloud and vice versa. This flexibility enables organizations to take full advantage of hybrid cloud benefits.
Management consistency: HCI simplifies the management of on-premises resources, and this consistent management approach can extend to hybrid cloud environments. Organizations can use similar management tools and practices for streamlining operations on-premises HCI and public cloud resources.
Scalability and agility: HCI's scalability features complement the public cloud's scalability. Organizations can scale their HCI resources on-site while leveraging the virtually limitless scalability of the public cloud when needed, ensuring agility to meet varying demands.
Cost optimization: A well-implemented hybrid cloud strategy with HCI can optimize costs. Organizations can leverage the cost-effectiveness of public cloud resources for specific workloads while maintaining control over sensitive data and applications on HCI infrastructure.
In summary, HCI and hybrid cloud are closely related because HCI can serve as the foundation for building a private cloud within an organization's data center, which can then be seamlessly integrated with public cloud resources. This integration provides flexibility, scalability, consistent management, and cost optimization, making it an attractive solution for modern IT environments.
