Array Application Delivery for Nutanix Invisible Infrastructure
As data center architectures continue to evolve, many IT managers are turning to hyperconverged infrastructure (HCI) to modernize application deployment and cloud service delivery. This emerging Web-scale architecture, as exemplified by Nutanix's Xtreme Computing Platform, dramatically reduces cost and complexity by natively converging server and storage resources into a single, software-defined appliance.
Hyperconverged infrastructure, however, does not eliminate the need for Layer-4 through Layer-7 services. IT must still assure the availability, performance and agility of Microsoft Exchange and SharePoint, Oracle, SAP, Citrix XenApp and XenServer and other business-critical applications.
Array's vAPV virtual application delivery controllers (ADC) and vxAG virtual secure access gateways (SSL VPN) are an ideal match for applications and other workloads running on hyperconverged infrastructures, providing integrated networking and security functions essential to delivering a quality user experience and realizing the full benefit of HCI in the enterprise data center.
Array vAPV virtual application delivery controllers (load balancing) and vxAG virtual secure access gateways (SSL VPN) can be deployed directly on Nutanix to create end-to-end, software-centric solutions. Where a higher degree of scalability, performance or SSL offloading are required, dedicated Array APV Series ADCs and AG Series SSL VPNs are certified for interoperability with Nutanix invisible infrastructure.
Array vAPV virtual application delivery controllers are available for VMware vSphere, Microsoft Hyper-V and Nutanix Acropolis KVM hypervisors. Array vxAG virtual secure access gateways are available for VMware vSphere and Nutanix Acropolis KVM, giving data center and cloud architects a range of choices for virtual and hyper-converged environments.
Array application delivery solutions are certified by leading software vendors and application developers including Microsoft, Oracle, IBM, SAP, VMware and Citrix. In addition, validated deployment guides and Nutanix installation guides are available to help ensure rapid, accurate deployment of enterprise applications and virtual desktop infrastructure.
Each Nutanix appliance contains all of the compute resources required for complete vAPV or vxAG deployment and can be up and running in less than 30 minutes – significantly reducing deployment times for business-critical applications. Multi-hypervisor support provides the flexibility to choose the right virtual infrastructure, and virtualization makes it easy to deploy and manage Array load balancing and application delivery solutions alongside virtual server workloads and VDI services with no impact on performance.
Virtual Application Delivery for Nutanix
Array application delivery solutions can be hosted directly on Nutanix infrastructure to provide application availability (load balancing) and secure access (SSL VPN). Together, Nutanix and Array deliver end-to-end solutions for scaling and optimizing critical enterprise applications.
Dedicated App Delivery for Nutanix
Array application delivery solutions can also be deployed as stand-alone physical ADC and SSL VPN appliances – validated to work in conjunction with Nutanix – for use cases where a higher degree of scalability, performance and SSL offloading may be required.
