Hardware Platform Updates – Haswell Refresh and Configure to Order Support for Nutanix NX-3000 Series

We are excited to announce a couple of big changes to Nutanix’s line of hardware platforms. Starting March 15th 2015, we will support Intel’s Haswell processors. The change will be rolled out over the next couple of months across our entire hardware portfolio. Haswell is the successor to Ivy Bridge microarchitecture, which is the de facto processor in all our hardware platforms today. You can read more about Haswell here.

Why is this meaningful? Enterprises IT shops refresh storage every 3-4 years. Typically, the storage refresh cycle is independent of server refresh as arrays are shipped by different vendors and managed by a different IT teams. If there are advancements in Intel microprocessors, graphic chipsets etc., server vendors are quick to refresh their servers with the latest and greatest hardware components, enabling customers to buy best-in-class technology. An enterprise-grade storage array has at least a couple of storage controllers, which are x86 servers that use the same processors as servers. Since the storage refresh happens less frequently, and support for newer hardware architecture is completely reliant on the storage vendor, customers are typically ‘stuck’ with older hardware components till the storage vendor supports these architectures and the customer refreshes the storage array.
