Nutanix is extending its Xi Frame desktop-as-a-service solution from the public cloud to the private cloud, enabling the delivery of apps and desktops in a hybrid cloud environment.
In addition, the company is announcing new functionality and additional planned availability zones for its cloud-based disaster recovery service, Xi Leap.
With Nutanix Xi Frame, customers can already access applications and virtual desktops from popular public clouds like AWS and Azure using any browser and device.
With the latest Xi Frame update running on the Nutanix AHV hypervisor, customers can extend desktop delivery to their Nutanix private cloud, integrating virtual desktop infrastructure services with the Nutanix Enterprise Cloud platform. Xi Frame desktops can be simultaneously delivered via multiple clouds and managed via a single console for seamless control and administration, providing a true hybrid experience.
In addition to being available to users on AWS and Azure, Xi Frame is now also available to customers worldwide for Nutanix private cloud deployments using AHV. Customers can provision thousands of virtual desktops in minutes as opposed to weeks, enabling them to improve the economics, speed and scale of desktop delivery. IT teams can now select the right cloud, public or private, for their VDI initiatives.
Nutanix Xi Leap is also expanding beyond its current availability zones in the U.S. and the U.K. In the coming months, additional Xi Leap availability zones are expected to be available in Italy, through Nutanix’s partnership with Sparkle, the international services arm of Telecom Italia Group, as well as in Japan and Germany.
