Managing the Remote Edge while deploying Nutanix HCI Edge Compute Solutions – at Scale

Optimize support costs, Reduce downtime, Eliminate manual errors, and Minimize onsite visits

Cruz Operations Center (CruzOC) offers unified management for Nutanix HCI edge computing and integrated support for advanced edge capabilities from varied vendors.

The CruzOC Remote Edge Management Solution for Nutanix HCI offers a single pane-of-glass for comprehensive security, compliance, health, performance, and software lifecycle orchestration for any infrastructure in your remote edge software-defined infrastructure and legacy hardware. Specifically, CruzOC integrates to Nutanix key features – Prism, AHV, rSyslog, and AOS – for monitoring, orchestration, and lifecycle and configuration management to support remote control of the Nutanix cluster while providing integrated management for other edge site capabilities.
