What Is Nutanix
Appliance?

Nutanix Appliance is a hyper-converged hardware platform that includes virtualization, networking, storage, and cross-hypervisor app mobility. It’s a complete solution that delivers any infrastructure service, aiming for an image of an all-in-one remedy. Nutanix HCI platforms let companies focus on their applications and their business value rather than infrastructure micromanagement. However, the set of features, capacity, and scalability, as well as licensing may prove too costly for ROBO & Edge businesses. StarWind HCI Appliance proves to be a more flexible and efficient alternative in this regard.
