PRIMEFLEX for Nutanix Enterprise Cloud

In order to keep up with the changing business landscape and maintain competitive edge, infrastructure and application modernization are crucial to an organization. The migration from traditional architectures over to hyperconverged infrastructure for the production workloads is not enough, since most will still be depending on traditional backup solutions and infrastructure for their data protection needs. The lack of control over data and backup leads to a long and complex recovery, lost data, application unavailability and missed service level agreements (SLAs). By working together, Fujitsu, Nutanix and Veeam are able to bring you a new approach to deploying and managing data protection solutions.



Many businesses are currently facing the monumental challenge of meeting digital demands that far exceed their IT capabilities. Legacy infrastructure with separate storage, networks and servers is not well suited to the fast pace of modern business and growing demands of enterprise applications. The IT infrastructure and virtualization software required to keep pace is both complex and costly, and the silos created by traditional infrastructure are a barrier to change. While many businesses with hardware-defined data centers and on-premises silos see multi-cloud as an optimal alternative, there is another solution.

For businesses looking to roll-out services with the operational efficiency and speed of public cloud, FUJITSU Integrated System PRIMEFLEX for Nutanix Enterprise Cloud offers a pre-integrated, pre-tested solution that includes all IT infrastructure components and software to simplify deployments across edge-core-cloud. Working in close partnership with Nutanix, we have used our joint expertise to co-create an orchestrated, single software-defined solution towards your data-driven transformation journey. Bridging the efficiency and performance gap between traditional infrastructure, public cloud services and edge cloud, it enables the deployment of infrastructure and new applications within minutes.

To achieve greater simplicity, performance and scalability, companies are upgrading their data centers with hyperconverged infrastructure (HCI). However, that infrastructure upgrade alone only addresses a portion of the problem - their backup and data protection strategies need to evolve as well in order to meet the current requirements. The lack of control over data and backup leads to long and complex recovery, lost data, application unavailability, and missed SLAs.

Nutanix Mine with Veeam blends innovative technology from leaders in the space, allowing you to experience top-notch cloud data management on an industry-leading hyperconverged enterprise cloud platform. The result is a full-stack secondary storage, as well as primary storage solution enabling you to quickly go from project planning to a complete data management solution, without the cost and overheads of standalone systems.

As a comprehensive data protection and management solution that includes all the hardware and software components required to support any virtualized or legacy environment, Nutanix Mine with Veeam enables granular data backup and recovery for all applications. It brings the simplicity and scale of Nutanix Cloud Platform and Veeam’s Enterprise backup and cloud data management capabilities to address customers’ backup, long-term retention, and archiving needs.

Through tight integration of Veeam with Nutanix HCI data fabric and the advanced Nutanix Prism management console, Nutanix Mine simplifies your data protection by hyperconverging backup, storage, recovery, and long-term archiving in a single turnkey solution where you can also manage your primary storage. IT managers now have a unified view available to them for monitoring and managing their HCI infrastructure and data protection environment.



As part of Fujitsu PRIMEFLEX, Nutanix Mine is available on Nutanix-certified XF systems (Fujitsu Integrated System PRIMEFLEX for Nutanix Enterprise Cloud), starting with a minimum of four nodes. Fujitsu supports three configurations for running Mine with Veeam:

  • Small Configuration based on XF1070 (Raw Storage 110TB);
  • Medium Configuration based on XF8055 (Raw Storage 350TB);
  • Medium Configuration based on XF8055 (Raw Storage 510TB).



At any time, customers can scale beyond the small or medium systems by seamlessly inserting add-on systems for a maximum of eight nodes. This way you will be able to non-disruptively scale your data protection solution to meet your growing business needs.
