IT teams are under Increasing pressure to ensure data security and availability but are lacking skillsets and integrated tools (i.e. inability to keep environment patched & standardized) to ensure the availability and security of a growing database estate.
DBTA recently held a webinar with Chris Paap, solutions marketing manager, Nutanix, who discussed how using Nutanix can secure DBs from vulnerabilities, backing up databases, and provide high availability.
IT teams and DBA’s face a number of challenges including database security and availability, daily business demands across production, dev, and test, building database instances – provisioning, and performance/troubleshooting complexity, Paap said.
Database complexity is hurting the business:
- It’s difficult to manage SLA’s
- Costs of copy data is high
- Decreased business agility
According to the IDC Copy Data Management report 2016 & 2018, 45% to 60% of total storage capacity is dedicated to accommodating copy data, Paap said.
The Nutanix solution for databases provides one platform for all a user’s databases, automated lifecycle management, and deployment choice.
According to Paap, Nutanix developed a platform that virtualizes and brings all a user’s database engines under one roof with one-click operations that make monitoring, optimizing, and managing all those databases much simpler and faster.
Nutanix then added modern cloud-ready database-as-a-service capabilities that automate and eliminate much of the administrative load.
The result is a database solution that performs exceptionally well, as the business demands it, is always available, secure and extremely cost-efficient, Paap explained.
