HPE and Nutanix have expanded their partnership with a new offering to the market through HPE GreenLake: a multi-database operations and management solution that is bundled with HPE's ProLiant servers.
The idea behind the new offering is that organisations are looking to remove siloes that can cause issues such as security risks, high maintenance costs, and a lack of flexibility.
HPE GreenLake cloud services senior VP and general manager Keith White says organisations also want to simplify their database operations. As such, HPE builds on the company's successful collaboration with Nutanix to offer a fully managed database operations service.
The solutions will enable organisations to automate, consolidate, and modernise database tasks and leverage support from multi-database operations management such as MariaDB, Microsoft SQL Server, MySQL, Oracle Database, and PostgresSQL.
Nutanix chief commercial officer Tarkan Maner says, “We continue to see tremendous success in our partnership, and HPE GreenLake with Nutanix Era for databases provides one more opportunity to strengthen our joint offerings and further serve customers.
“As customers are looking for solutions to help them in their journey to hybrid and multicloud, HPE and Nutanix deliver strong, integrated solutions to support them on their journey by providing performance, control, and security available as a full breadth of portfolio whether it's solely using HPE ProLiant DX series of servers for private clouds or combining with HPE GreenLake cloud services to run this environment as a managed cloud.
The fully managed cloud service offers agile, elastic, and pay-per-use capabilities of the cloud while gaining the governance, visibility and compliance of an on-premises environment.
HPE GreenLake with Nutanix Era for databases is currently available to customers, with metering billing capabilities available in July 2021.
The companies states that some customers using Nutanix Era have reported:
- 97% increase in speed of database provisioning
