The U.S. Army Program Executive Office Aviation has selected Nutanix to provideÂ additional data center architecture offerings as partÂ of efforts to bolster PEO Aviation’sÂ virtualÂ desktop infrastructure for managing the U.S. Army‘s aircraft systems.
Nutanix said MondayÂ the Army hasÂ procured the web-scaleÂ NX-3050 and NX-7110 to support PEO Aviation operations and add capacity for as much as 500 new virtual desktops on top of the current 400.
“Web-scale is a unique approach to designing, building and managing datacenter infrastructure,” saidÂ Chris Howard, vice president for the federal sectorÂ at Nutanix.
“It offers predictability in terms of scalability, a lower total cost of ownership and is agile to easily respond to changing demands.”
As part of theÂ Nutanix Virtual Computing Platform, the procured products work to combine storage and computing functions in a single appliance and enable modular scalability, the companyÂ said.
