Nutanix_Certified

IBM® Hyperconverged Systems powered by Nutanix are now SUSE YES Certified for SUSE Linux. These certifications are for the 1U CS821 and 2U CS822 models. These systems will combine the performance of the IBM POWER8 chip architecture and the simplicity of Nutanix management software.

These systems are certified for the little endian SLES 12 Service Pack 3 and the big endian SLES 11 Service Pack 4. IBM and Nutanix certified both releases to ensure that customers have the broadest choices of application workloads.

These certifications give you the flexibility to start leveraging the Nutanix hyperconverged management technology for existing Linux on Power workloads. The Nutanix architecture allows you to start small and to scale your Nutanix Power environment as your workloads grow.

Hyperconverged infrastructure streamlines the deployment, management and scaling of datacenter resources by combining server and storage resources with intelligent software in a managed software defined infrastructure. The goal is to create an agile datacenter that easily scales with your business.
