Nutanix Era is a suite of software which automates and simplifies database management, bringing one-click simplicity and invisible operations to database provisioning and lifecycle management (LCM).
One-click Database Provisioning
Era allows database admins (DBAs) to create a standardized catalog for their database services. DBAs can create gold profiles for their database engines and thus standardize compute, network, and database parameter sizing. Era makes databases cloud-ready, provides mobility, and offers the ability to create instant clone copies of the databases.
One-click provisioning of complex environments
Nutanix Era supports complex database environments, so DBAs don’t need to worry about how to create and partition disks to have the most efficient infrastructure.
Database standardization catalog
Nutanix Era empowers DBAs to easily manage their database estates using database profiles.
Database Copy Data Management
This is the marquee feature of Era. With a core construct called “Time-machine,” Era captures all database states for any given service-level agreement (SLA) and allows DBAs to not only create fully functional database copies, but also refresh existing copies. Time-machine’s sophisticated technology preserves databases, powering them quickly and precisely.
One-click time machine for the database
Era leverages Nutanix's space and time-efficient snapshot technology, integrating it with application-specific APIs to achieve snapshots and point-in-time recovery.
One-click database clone/refresh
Nutanix Era lowers OpEx costs for enterprises by enabling one-click clone/restore database operations in just a few minutes, up to the last database transaction.
