Nutanix selected by Canadian Solar for Enterprise Cloud Platform.
Nutanix (NTNX) announced that Canadian Solar (CSIQ) has chosen the Nutanix Enterprise Cloud Platform to run its mission-critical enterprise applications including MS Exchange, SQL, SharePoint, enterprise applications and the company intranet. Using the Nutanix Enterprise Cloud Platform, including Nutanix's Prism management solution with VMWare ESXi virtualization, Canadian Solar has seen increased application performance for end users, greater productivity from the IT team, major cost savings and reduced rackspace from 14U to 4U. Canadian Solar first decided to switch to Nutanix after struggling to manage its previous NetApp storage system with the IT team's limited resources and time. After reviewing three options for an upgraded infrastructure solution, Canadian Solar chose Nutanix to run the company's workloads at one of its primary data center and remote offices in the Americas and EMEA regions. The entire process of migrating VMs from its NetApp solution to Nutanix took just a few days. As part of its deployment, the team is also using Nutanix's management solution, Prism, to manage storage, compute and virtualization, proactively monitor storage capacity and enable one-click software upgrades.
