Nutanix Xtract Introduces VM Migration Simplicity to Hyperconverged Infrastructures


During .Next 2017, held in Washington DC in June, Nutanix announced Xtract for VMs beta release, a key component in simplifying organizations’ Nutanix Enterprise Cloud adoption when there are existing workloads that need to be migrated.

Following three months of beta testing, and many successful Nutanix and customer migrations, we are proud to announce that Xtract for VMs 1.0 is now generally available to Nutanix customers.

Migrations versus Replacing or Rebuilding

During the IT planning phase for brownfield projects, organizations decide on how to handle existing applications and VMs/workloads, depending on whether an application-centric or infrastructure-centric approach is required. Each of these can be handled manually by replacing, rebuilding or re-architecting them, or, they can be automated using migration or application deployment tools.

Xtract for VMs radically simplifies the adoption of Nutanix Enterprise Cloud by automating the manual steps required to move VMs from a VMware ESXi source infrastructure to Nutanix AHV.

The benefits of migrating workloads in this manner are easily justified:

  • VM migration projects can be considerably quicker to complete than performing manual rebuilds or sourcing and testing replacements products.
  • Automating migrations frees up infrastructure admins’ time to carry out other tasks.
  • Automated migrations are not prone to human error, resulting in more consistent migration results
  • Migrating from ESXi to AHV frees up customers’ licensing budgets for other projects
