Nutanix has unveiled a new open service – dubbed Mine – which integrates secondary storage operations with the firm’s Enterprise Cloud Platform, delivering a complete system for primary and secondary storage within the private cloud.

According to Nutanix, Mine enables customers will be able to manage their HCI environment and backup operations from a single management console, through native integration with industry-leading backup vendors Veeam, HYCU, Commvault, Veritas and Unitrends.

This, it added, allows them to cut the operational cost and complexity of standalone back-up and recovery solutions.

“Mine will streamline overall deployment, and simplify the full lifecycle of data backup operations, including on-going management, scaling and troubleshooting – all while preserving the customer’s freedom to choose the right back-up service for their particular infrastructure environment,” Nutanix said.
