Cloud computing software provider Nutanix has made available its new edge computing service ‘Xi IoT’, which expedites deployment, removes complexity, and encourages developers to focus on business logic powering IoT applications and services.
The Xi IoT platform is different from the conventional IoT models.
The Xi IoT platform provides machine inference, local compute, and data services to perform real-time processing at the edge. The Xi IoT Data Pipelines securely moves intelligently analysed data to a customer’s public or private cloud platform of choice for long-term analysis. As the platform offers zero-touch setup and management of edge devices, enterprises can mitigate the risk of IoT security breaches due to human error, boost efficiency and lower the cost of operating edge devices across the world.
Ashish Nadkarni, group vice president, infrastructure systems, platforms and technologies at IDC, said: “It is critical for enterprise organisations to have an edge strategy to unify, edge to cloud connectivity, to rapidly build IoT applications, and to provide real-time analytics closer to where the data is generated. For companies looking for a competitive advantage, solutions like Nutanix Xi IoT can help them stay ahead of the market and identify new opportunities to grow their businesses.”
Besides the Xi IoT platform, Nutanix has also announced the availability of a new suite of offerings ‘Xi Cloud Services’ developed to create more unified fabric across different cloud environments. This will allow the IT teams a liberty to operate their applications on the optimal platform, not restricted by technology limitations. Xi Cloud Services comprises of five different offerings, namely Xi Leap, Xi Frame, Xi Beam, Xi Epoch, and Xi IoT.
Nutanix, through its Xi Cloud Services, makes it feasible for organisations to integrate cloud services into their multi-cloud deployments, either by natively extending their Nutanix environment beyond the boundaries of a traditional datacentre or by gaining the visibility and insight into their infrastructure deployments across platforms to monitor costs and ensure compliance.
