DESIGNED FOR OPERATORS/ DEVELOPERS
Operator support is built-in, which consolidates infrastructure sprawl and eliminates application silos. Operators can easily manage planet-scale operations with zero-touch onboarding.
Developers can bring their own cloud and machine learning models from any domain and access rich data and runtime services to execute AI at the edge. Developers can also leverage rich APIs and integrate with existing CI/CD pipelines for easy debugging.
BUILD INTELLIGENT EDGE PLATFORMS AT SCALE
The Nutanix Xi IoT platform delivers local compute and AI for IoT edge devices, converging the edge and cloud into one seamless data processing platform. The Xi IoT platform eliminates complexity, accelerates deployments, and elevates developers to focus on the business logic powering IoT applications and services. Now developers can use a low-code development platform to create application software via APIs instead of arduous programming methods.
Infrastructure and App Lifecycle Management for Massive Scale
Make edge infrastructure invisible by enabling frictionless functionality and deployment across all IoT stakeholders, including end users, IT operators, application developers, and data scientists.
Insights from Data at Low-code
Compute sensor data streams locally in real-time with open dataflows and services, while allowing filtered and transformed data to flow securely to your cloud of choice using native services. The edge PaaS (Platform-as-a-Service) supports easy-to-use developer APIs, reusable data streams, and pluggable machine learning (ML) architecture to enable rapid development and global deployment of modern IoT applications. Xi IoT lets you build multiple frameworks into the runtime, enabling custom runtime environments, and bring in ML models from anywhere.
Convergence of Edge and Cloud
Easily move data from edge devices to a cloud of your choice, be it your own private cloud or Microsoft, Amazon, or Google public cloud infrastructure.
Xi IoT offers several advantages over traditional proxy gateway solutions, including:
- Real-time data processing at the edge for real-time, actionable insights
- No-code methods for migrating filtered insights to your preferred clouds
- Easy configuration, setup, and management for thousands of edge locations from a centralized SaaS control plane
Xi IoT AND EDGE ARCHITECTURE
Nutanix Xi IoT is comprised of a SaaS control plane and Xi Edge platform running on an edge device. The SaaS control plane provides an end-to-end platform that is centrally managed from the cloud through a user-friendly interface for application development and operations to easily deploy thousands of edge locations. Using Xi IoT, Nutanix customers can either deploy Xi Edge bare metal or as virtual machine (VM) on shared or dedicated nodes.The Xi Edge platform leverages Kubernetes, which allows you to consolidate traditional IoT applications as well as enable new-generation, data sciencebased applications in containers.
The Xi Edge platform provides secure access to IoT data sources with data pipelines all the way from the edge to the cloud, including AWS, Azure, GCP, and managed/on-prem private clouds. It also provides seamless data mobility between edge and cloud, which lets users send metadata and build ML models in the cloud.
