Nutanix Beam Gives Enterprises Control of the Cloud

New SaaS Offering Visualizes, Predicts and Manages Runaway Costs, and Assesses Security and Regulatory Compliance Across Multiple Clouds

NEW ORLEANS--()--Nutanix (NASDAQ:NTNX), a leader in enterprise cloud computing, today announced at .NEXT Conference 2018 Nutanix Beam, a new software-as-a-service (SaaS) offering that delivers multi-cloud governance so organizations can manage their spending, security and regulatory compliance across nearly any cloud platform. Beam is based on Nutanix’s recently-acquired Minjar Botmetric service, which is already used to manage more than $1B of cloud spend across Amazon Web Services (AWS) and Microsoft Azure.

“Beam is an excellent tool that provides a single pane of glass to see the state of our infrastructure, automate tasks, provide cost-saving recommendations and generate billing reports.”

According to Gartner, “Governance becomes incrementally more challenging as organizations deploy multicloud strategies, because they must govern not only the consumption of cloud by provider, but also consumption across cloud providers. The cloud providers offer on-demand, self-service resources with endless capacity, making it difficult for organizations to gain visibility into what is being consumed. Without visibility into consumption, it is impossible to govern and manage your environment.”1 For businesses adopting hybrid cloud architectures, this creates an unenviable scenario, managing IT costs and security across third-party cloud deployments.

The Nutanix Enterprise Cloud OS software helps companies reduce complexity of their multi-cloud architectures by melding private, public and distributed clouds into a common IT operating model for their end-to-end infrastructure. Beam, the first SaaS offering from Nutanix, further reduces complexity by providing customers with deep visibility and rich analytics detailing how they are using the public cloud. It also provides one-click recommendations based on machine intelligence so IT teams can immediately optimize their cloud spend and enhance their security posture for improved compliance across clouds. IT organizations get a clear view into the entirety of their public cloud deployments so unexpected costs and potential security gaps can be addressed before they turn into business challenges. Beam helps organizations make better decisions when operating multi-cloud architectures.

“For us, integrity, security and compliance are of the utmost importance, especially across our multi-client, multi-technology environment with a large application landscape. It was becoming a nightmare to keep track of everything. That’s when we came across Nutanix Beam,” said Rustum Virani, Cloud Solution Architect Manager, ZS Associates. “Beam is an excellent tool that provides a single pane of glass to see the state of our infrastructure, automate tasks, provide cost-saving recommendations and generate billing reports.”

Nutanix Beam customers better manage their multi-cloud deployments with:

  • Cost Optimization and Cloud Visibility — IT teams get full visibility into their overall cloud costs. They can then optimize their spending by quickly identifying unused and underutilized resources, and select more size and cost appropriate cloud resources for each application
  • Centralized Financial Governance — businesses get streamlined visibility into the entire cloud footprint so IT departments can track the consumption of cloud resources by department and group, make data-driven decisions balancing IT needs and cost constraints, and enforce policies based on allocated budgets
  • Continuous Cloud Security and Regulatory Compliance — customers can define custom health check policies for compliance audits, and proactively analyze cloud security operations, while real-time scans for cloud compliance identify risks and violations

“In the multi-cloud era, IT organizations need a unified, real-time view to all of their private, public and distributed clouds,” said Vijay Rayapati, GM, Engineering, Nutanix. “Beam services help our customers optimize their cloud spend and manage compliance, putting them back in control of their IT assets. We’re so pleased to be a part of the Nutanix family and bring our Botmetric technology to Nutanix customers as Nutanix Beam.”
