Nutanix’s Multi-Cloud Management Moves Into the Data Center
November 01, 2018 / Jessica Lyons Hardcastle
Nutanix’s multi-cloud management software called Beam now reaches into customers’ on-premises data centers. Nutanix launched the software-as-a-service (SaaS), which manages costs, consumption, and governance across clouds, in May. It uses Minjar’s Botmetric technology that Nutanix acquired in March. Initially Beam supported Amazon Web Services (AWS) and Microsoft Azure, and now the company extended this multi-cloud view to on-premises Nutanix environments. It shows customers, via a single management dashboard, how much they are spending on each Nutanix cluster and gives them advance notification when they need to add more software based on current consumption. The company plans to add Google Cloud at a later date.
