Nutanix Hyper-converge Technology Evolution To Xi Cloud

Nutanix More Than Hyper Converge

Nutanix is just not a Hyper-converge it is more than it

By Hyperhci

Nutanix founded in 2009 with new original concept called Hyper-converged to sort out the measure silos in three tier architecture of Information Technology and finally got the victory to defeat the three tier silos to invent hyper HCI cutting edge technology.

Nutanix has its own development or evolution of software products history from Nutanix HCI to Xi cloud.

Nutanix core concept was based on Web scale infrastructure to get rid of three tier architecture parallelly removed the multi-hop devices from IT infrastructure.

Nutanix Technology Evolution
