The company claimed that the new capabilities will help its customers in managing object data across multiple Nutanix clusters for achieving scale, increased object storage capacity per node, and formal Splunk SmartStore certification.
“Big data applications require incredible scale and performance at competitive cost structures. The Nutanix platform, with the addition of multi-cluster object storage, offers a compelling solution for unstructured object storage that leverages existing storage resources for improved storage economics,” stated Greg Smith, VP of Product Marketing at Nutanix.
The company also informed that Nutanix Objects is now certified by Splunk as SmartStore compliant allowing customers to manage Splunk data growth with Nutanix Objects. The common customers will be able to run Splunk workloads on Nutanix software, and leverage Nutanix Objects for built-in object storage to support their Splunk environment, said the company.
“Digital transformation requires web-scale storage for enterprise workloads. Object storage is rapidly becoming the storage of choice for next gen and big data applications. As object storage makes the leap from the cloud to the datacenter and mission critical workloads, economics must be balanced with performance.” said Amita Potnis, research director in IDC’s Storage team.
