Nutanix is extending the Beam capability it launched six months ago for Amazon Web Services and Microsoft Azure into private clouds running on Nutanix hyper-converged infrastructure.
Nutanix Beam is a software-as-a-service (SaaS) offering that gives Nutanix HCI customers visibility into their costs across public clouds and now on-premises deployments. Beam serves as a multi-cloud management dashboard that shows how applications are consuming cloud resources. Its new release also adds the ability to analyze cloud consumption trends to help plan future spending, and show customers the cost of Nutanix clusters and software licenses allocated to each cluster.
