Nutanix Flow – How to back up applications with a single click
Nutanix announced Nutanix Flow, a software-defined network solution (SDN) for the multi-cloud era, at its 2018 NEXT Conference. Flow provides application-aware security to protect against internal and external threats that are not recognized by traditional perimeter-centric security products. Fully integrated into Nutanix ‚AcropolisTM software, the flow capabilities are enhanced by the recent acquisition of Netsil in real-time with application visibility and discovery technology. Nutanix Flow automates the creation and management of application security.
Enterprise IT teams rely on cloud-based infrastructures to deliver modern business applications, many of which are discrete but related services. Protecting these applications requires Nutanix Flow’s micro-segmentation features that enforce app-centric communication policies between application services. Nutanix will also use Netsil’s advanced stream processing, application discovery and mapping technology to simplify the definition of security policies for public and private cloud applications. IT teams and business owners are confident that their business applications are protected from internal and external security threats.
