Overview

Nutanix Enterprise Cloud for the Public Sector

Nutanix makes infrastructure invisible, elevating IT to focus on the applications and services that power their business. The Nutanix Enterprise Cloud Platform blends web-scale engineering and consumer-grade design to natively converge server, storage, virtualization and networking into a resilient, software-defined solution with rich machine intelligence. This results in predictable performance, cloud consumption models, robust security, and seamless application mobility for all enterprise applications at any scale.

Education

Graduation capAs classrooms evolve further towards ever-changing technology, from kindergarten to graduate classes, IT infrastructure should be more adaptable than ever. Nutanix and Carahsoft understand that school systems have to stretch their dollars across an overabundance of activities and programs. By purchasing through contracts like VASCUPP, our partnership will ensure that school system virtualization is being met with ease and optimization.

FITARA

Nutanix helps government agencies meet and exceed the requirements of the Data Center Optimization Initiative (DCOI) as established in OMB Memorandum M-16-19, which supersedes the Federal Data Center Consolidation Initiative (FDCCI) and fulfills the data center requirements of the Federal Information Technology Acquisition Reform Act (FITARA). By moving to Nutanix, agencies can promote cloud (the Federal Cloud Computing Strategy “Cloud First” policy) and shared services, and transition their existing infrastructure to a more efficient platform that will leverage the technological advancements that optimize infrastructure. Nutanix’s unique innovative approach saves money and meets policies with a simple proven migration path off on-premise legacy outdated infrastructure.

Implementing the solutions within the Carahsoft Nutanix Category Management Offering will allow the Federal Government to achieve:

  • Savings based on annual spend on Nutanix Solutions
  • Optimization and consolidation of Hybrid Cloud Infrastructure
  • Initiatives and objectives outlined in DCOI, FDCCI, FITARA, and the Cloud First Policy

Nutanix Receives California SLP Approval to Deliver Hybrid Cloud Solutions Across Government Agencies

April 22, 2021

A leading hybrid cloud infrastructure vendor, Nutanix is now an approved vendor for the software licensing program (SLP) with the State of California. Nutanix’s three-year contract with the state means the company has been pre-reviewed and opens its services to state and local agencies and educational institutions. Government organizations can buy software directly from Nutanix in a competitive bidding process and benefit from a volume discount worked out in the SLP.

Nutanix Solutions Provide Assurance for a Secure and Compliant Digital Campus

April 12, 2021

With cybersecurity attacks on the rise, higher education institutions are increasingly vulnerable to Ransomware and other malicious infections. It can be challenging for these institutions to protect their educators and students when they’re consistently faced with a lack of resources and expertise in the area. IT departments, for example, weren’t expected to have the bandwidth of a full-fledged cybersecurity portfolio before COVID, which is necessary in today’s digitally-focused environments. Nutanix has identified four key priorities of the education industry to better understand its needs.

Simple, Scalable, and Secure Data Management with Nutanix Objects 2.0

April 7, 2021

Amid the pandemic, it has become imperative that government organizations have reliable, well architected solutions that are easy to deploy, completely secure, and scalable.

To combat these challenges, Nutanix built Objects 2.0—a simple solution that amplifies security with Splunk SmartStore and Write Once, Read Many (WORM) implementation while remaining scalable from as small as 1 TiB to many PBs—all while remaining cost efficient.

DoD ESI awards Nutanix a BPA to support IT operations across the DoD enterprise

January 19, 2021

Nutanix recently received a Blanket Purchasing Agreement (BPA) from the DoD Enterprise Software Initiative (ESI). This will streamline the process for federal government agencies to acquire and use Nutanix Hybrid Cloud Software Platforms. DoD ESI centralizes acquisitions of IT products and services across the DoD, Coast Guard, and intelligence communities. It lowers the TCO for agencies, saving time and money on commercial IT software, hardware, and services. The recent BPA reduces the contracting and open market costs associated with the traditional procurement process.

Nutanix Era: One-click Database Operations

October 5, 2020

Traditional database operations are complex and inefficient. Engineers typically leverage multiple solutions for database operations such as provisioning, cloning, and refreshing. This results in a complex environment that slows agility and efficiency. When working with enterprise databases, for example, DBAs do not just clone a production instance exactly as-is but also must ensure the ability to create these clones from any point in time.

Three Forward-Thinking Ways to Optimize Telework Infrastructure

May 15, 2020

In the wake of statewide stay-at-home orders triggered by the COVID-19 pandemic across the country, businesses have had to pivot to telework operations practically overnight. This effort, considered a challenge for any business, was especially difficult for government agencies—in 2019, just 19 percent of local government agencies, and less than half of all states, had any telework infrastructure set up.
