What is the product?
Nutanix recently announced new updates to Beam, extending its capabilities into on-prem deployments. With these new updates, Nutanix customers can get visibility and insight into the entirety of their infrastructure environment, including public and private clouds, so they can choose the right cloud for every application.
Why is it important?
Hybrid cloud is no longer considered a brief stopping point in the journey toward an all public cloud future. It’s a final destination as customers realize they want the complementary benefits of public and private cloud. However, companies need to understand how they’re using infrastructure no matter what the platform and from a single view. Nutanix Beam now provides that visibility so customers can make informed decisions about their entire infrastructure.
Why is it different?
Beam will now provide customers with cost visibility into Nutanix software licenses so they can understand the cost associated with their Nutanix private cloud environments, as well as with public cloud deployments on popular cloud platforms. Customers will now be able to see how much they are spending on each Nutanix cluster they’ve set up.
