Why the Latest Nutanix and Microsoft Arc Integration will prove to be a Cloud Experience Bliss?

How will the Smart cloud integration between Microsoft Arc and Nutanix will simplify cluster management and Kubernetes infrastructure? Read more to find out.

Cloud is no longer a choice, it is a necessity and is lately subjected to evaluation based on the Experience value. This is specifically true in the context of IT Teams dealing with clusters. 

IT teams manage a group of Kubernetes clusters through Kubernetes cluster management. And advancement in technology has made it possible for modern cloud-native applications in  Kubernetes environments to become highly distributed. They can be deployed across multiple datacenters at the edge, on-premise,and in the public/private cloud.

IT teams that want to use Kubernetes in production or at scale will have multiple clusters, including  testing, development, and production, distributed across infrastructures and need to be able to manage them effectively. They have been deploying Kubernetes Cluster Management solutions for a while now. But

as we progress, integrations and container management simplification with time efficiency have been given a priority.

The Karbon distribution of Kubernetes made available by Nutanix has now been integrated with Microsoft Arc management framework, recently. 

Azure Arc, which is developed in a way that it can support any distribution of Kubernetes, has been recognized as the primary mechanism through which Microsoft plans to expand its reach  above and beyond solutions, platforms running the entire stack of Azure software. Azure Arc does so by creating a managed identity for every single Kubernetes cluster that lies within the Azure Portal by assigning an Azure Resource Manager ID. Later, these Kubernetes clusters can be attached to standard Azure subscriptions. This is done so that they can participate in resource groups and be assigned designated tags like any other Azure resource.

Nutanix Karbon integration into Microsoft Arc is meant to simplify the entire process of Kubernetes Cluster Management and smoothen the deployment of applications enabled on microservices but based on containers. Nutanix is already a major player in the production-ready Kubernetes infrastructures, and with this integration announcement, the IT leader will now be able to deliver a blissful cloud experience for cloud-native users while maintaining the essence of their nature. This will be possible because of the following reasons – 

  • Scalability
    The halo and horn of a production-ready Kubernete facility is that it is simple to utilize, but can restrain scalability because of the configuration requirements.
    But with this integration, scalability can be achieved via logs and metric collection in addition to monitoring of configuration requests.
  • Unification – Opposed to isolation, IT teams will now be enabled to manage multiple clouds within their on-premise environments, in turn reducing the overall cost of IT.
  • Parallel use and Management of Monolithic Applications – Since now the teams will be able to set up a Kubernetes cluster in as less as 10 minutes, IT teams will be given the leverage of simply managing monolithic applications on top of a hyperconverged infrastructure which will prove to advance a cloud-like experience.
  • Time Management All the above mentioned activities will now be done in a span of minutes as opposed to days or weeks.

IT teams now have the answer to their enterprise IT environment management questions under a centralized approach and platform that will help them achieve their enterprise application goals.
