Nutanix Objects

This is one of the firt times i write about Nutanix Objects also called just Objects and you will in the not so far distant future understand why 🙂

Objects is an object store service which is designed and provides an Amazon Web Services Simple Storage Service (AWS S3) compatible REST API. As you know the use case is to manage unstructured (no matter how it is generated) data. Features included in Objects:

  • Write-Once-Read-Many (WORM)
  • Immutability
  • Object Versioning
  • Data Life Cycle Management
  • Multipart Upload
  • Data-at-Rest Encryption with Native Key Management
  • Identity and Access Management
  • Multi-protocol Access

The Objects solution, containerized services in a Kubernetes cluster, runs both in Nutanix Prism Central (PC) where the management happens and also on each Nutanix node in the Nutanix cluster.
