  • The full cloud native stack of Nutanix would be able to offer a quick and simple way to deploy highly available Kubernetes clusters

  • With the availability of Karbon, the enterprises can now install and run Kubernetes with a cloud-like experience in their private data center

Nutanix, Inc., the US-based cloud software and hyper converged infrastructure solutions provider, has reportedly announced that it has launched its Certified Kubernetes solution, Nutanix Karbon. As per trusted sources, the customers of the company would be able to take advantage of Nutanix Enterprise Cloud Platform to create and run both their virtual machine and container-based applications on-premises.

As per IDC, the container infrastructure software industry is estimated to expand from USD 131.1 million in 2017 to USD 1.55 billion in 2022. Although much of the adoption to date has been with web-scale firms, it is now expanding into enterprises.

The Vice President of Products at Nutanix, Greg Muscarella was reportedly quoted saying that businesses want to leverage the power of Kubernetes to update their applications and enhance the speed of software development. With the availability of Karbon, the enterprises can now install and run Kubernetes with a cloud-like experience across their personal data centers without the need to maintain and build Kubernetes, Muscarella further added.

According to a press release from Nutanix, the full cloud native stack of Nutanix would be able to offer a quick and simple way to deploy highly available Kubernetes clusters with the persistent storage, object storage, enterprise grade data services, observability and monitoring that today’s businesses need.

Senior Director of SREs at Cyxtera, Zach Hilliard reportedly commented saying that a Kubernetes cluster can be deployed in just a few minutes by leveraging Nutanix Karbon. The said process was time-consuming, very tedious, and complex prior to Karbon, however, now the enterprises can focus more on cloud native applications and stop worrying about the Kubernetes infrastructure, Hilliard further added.
