virtual trainingThe U.S. Army Program Executive Office Aviation has selected Nutanix to provide additional data center architecture offerings as part of efforts to bolster PEO Aviation’s virtual desktop infrastructure for managing the U.S. Army‘s aircraft systems.

Nutanix said Monday the Army has procured the web-scale 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,” said Chris Howard, vice president for the federal sector 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 the Nutanix Virtual Computing Platform, the procured products work to combine storage and computing functions in a single appliance and enable modular scalability, the company said.
