Turn your Database into a Service

A dbInsight white paper for Nutanix

Published March 2021


By the mid-2020s, Hybrid Cloud Computing will become the default choice for deploying new systems or replatforming existing systems. Enterprises demand the simplicity, flexibility, elimination of operational and management duplication, and agility of the cloud control plane, while keeping their options open on where to run the workloads. For databases, they want the cloud operational simplicity of a service without restricting their platform choices. There are multiple paths emerging for enterprises seeking to manage their data estates through cloud-style consolidated control planes, with or without having to rely on specific cloud platform vendors. Hyperconverged infrastructure has emerged as one of those options. It allows enterprises to use the hardware of choice by applying a software-defined control plane that manages each of these pieces as modular building blocks. For HCI to become practical for bringing cloud operational simplicity to databases, they require highly simplified single-click solutions addressing the core housekeeping tasks of operating databases, encompassing provisioning, copy data management, data protection, and management of patches and updates that work across all of their databases, regardless of where they are deployed.
