Tech Note:
Data Efficiency

Using Nutanix data transformation technologies to optimize datacenter storage.

Nutanix designed the Enterprise Cloud Platform from the ground up to provide not only best-in-class reliability, but consumer-grade simplicity and peerless efficiency as well. In this technical note, we discuss how the Acropolis Distributed Storage Fabric (DSF) transforms data to accelerate application performance and optimize storage capacity.

Nutanix data reduction and data avoidance techniques are intelligent and adaptive, requiring little or no fine-tuning, thus reducing operating expenses and freeing your IT staff to focus on growth and innovation. Unlike traditional storage architectures, Nutanix web-scale design ensures that data efficiency techniques scale as the cluster grows—node by node, with no bottlenecks, single points of failure, or expensive proprietary hardware and software.
