Acropolis Acropolis

The industry’s most popular hyperconverged infrastructure (HCI) solution.

Software for your Private Cloud

The complexity, costs and tedious processes that come with legacy infrastructure distract IT from delivering the apps and services your business needs.

Nutanix Acropolis software converges compute and storage to provide cloud-like infrastructure that can run any application at any scale. Unlike other HCI products, Acropolis provides the freedom to choose the right technology for the business, including hardware platform, virtualization technology and public cloud integration. With in-built data protection, security, and self-healing capabilities, IT teams get a full stack solution they control, which can be deployed in minutes - without requiring teams of specialists.

Leader Again in the November 2018 Gartner Magic Quadrant for Hyperconverged Infrastructure

Simplify your Datacenter

Eliminate the time and effort needed to design, procure and deploy infrastructure. Get started in minutes, with hyperconverged infrastructure that includes compute, storage and networking, and scales out as needs grow. IDC found that customers get 60% lower TCO with a 7-month payback period.
