Nutanix has announced Karbon Platform Services, a Kubernetes-based multi-cloud platform-as-a-service (PaaS) with automated system-managed security. It said the service will accelerate the development and deployment of microservices-based apps across any cloud.
Software developers can deploy the solution to offer a turnkey managed services experience, on-premises, in the public cloud, and at the edge, to build and run cloud native applications while enabling them to decouple applications from the underlying infrastructure. It also provides IT operations teams with an application lifecycle management and security framework, said Nutanix.
Enterprises, with their sights set on realising the benefits of digital initiatives, often struggle to unleash the full potential of their software developers and the agile DevOps processes by which they need to operate, said Rajiv Mirani, CTO at Nutanix.
“Kubernetes, along with its ecosystem of cloud native technologies, continues to rapidly evolve, making it increasingly difficult to implement without extensive technical resources” he added. “Furthermore, organisations need to be able to leverage both on-premises and public cloud-based Kubernetes deployments without compromising their ability to manage data, applications, and IT resources simply and effectively.”
IT resources are the engines that power digital enterprises, added Mirani: “But as a company scales, adopts hybrid cloud, and manages an increasing number of applications, supporting engineering needs can be challenging for IT. With Karbon Platform Services, we aim to simplify application development and orchestration while streamlining the relationship between IT and development teams to support our customers’ DevOps strategies.”
Nutanix has also announced new capabilities in its hyperconverged infrastructure (HCI) software. It said these innovations will bring up to 50% faster performance, native virtual networking to simplify multi-cloud deployments, end-to-end security monitoring to support a Zero Trust strategy, and expanded automation and budgeting capabilities for cloud resources.
This event will be useful for those wanting more information on multi-cloud and cloud-native issues.
