Nutanix: Private Clouds, Enterprise Clouds and More

As adoption of the Nutanix Enterprise Cloud rapidly increases, one of the top questions we get is the difference between a “Private Cloud” and an “Enterprise Cloud”. Private Clouds have been around for close to 10 years in one form or another. Some enterprises — including Nutanix customers — have built modestly successful private clouds based on VMware, Microsoft or OpenStack-based software while many others have tried and failed. In this blog, we have attempted to articulate the difference between the two “clouds” and provide recommendations for how to evaluate the alternatives.

What is a Private Cloud?

Irrespective of vendors, the fundamental attributes of private clouds are the same:

  • Resource Pooling: Consolidate storage, server, virtualization and networking infrastructure and expose them as a pooled set of resources that are then made available to end-users and applications. Automate all the manual steps associated with connecting storage to virtual machines or configuring virtual networking policies.
  • Automation: Automate/orchestrate common operations within the datacenter including provisioning and scaling infrastructure, issue remediation, and more.
  • Integration: Integrate with ticketing and catalog management software products such as HP Service Manager and ServiceNow and combine with show-back/bill-back functionality.
  • Self-Service: Provide self-service access for end users to deploy and manage VMs and services based on administrator set policies.
