Summary of the Nutanix .Next Tour in Frankfurt: Introducing the first only Nutanix Backup Solution Day 1

This is my first Article about Nutanix. I was partially involved in a Nutanix/Citrix VDI blog and I was quite impressed from the capabilities Nutanix offers  and decided to dive deeper in the world of hyper converged infrastructure.
So I visited the .NEXT Tour in Frankfurt on February 06th 2018. If you missed it, no worries. Next stops are:

  • Utrecht, Netherlands March 06 2018
  • London, United Kingdom March 14 2018
  • Dubai, United Arab Emirates April 10 2018

So let's start with Monday 05th. I visited an evening reception from ADN and Comtrade where they presented the first backup and recovery Solution for Nutanix called HYCU.
It's very performant for Acropolis File Server (AFS), Acropolis Block Services (ABS), Acropolis Object Storage Services (AOSS), and can be implemented in a 4-3-2 Method.

  • Learn in less than 4 Minutes
  • Deploy in less than 3 Minutes
  • Recover in less than 2 Minutes

Key integration topics with Nutanix are:

  • Storage Level Snapshots
  • Data Ingestion
  • Nutanix as a Target
  • Nutanix Calm 
  • and a few more
They invested a lot of time in matching terminology with Nutanix's and their GUI- to give you the same look and feel like on your Nutanix GUI.
The Average-Time-To-First-Backup shell be five Minutes.

All in all it was a very nice and technical evening with a lot of new people. Unfortunately it won't fit for my actual usecase but maybe we will come together in a new project.
