Multi-Cloud Software Provider Nutanix Launches Carbon and Power Estimator Tool

August 18, 2023 by Joe Panettieri

Nutanix, a multi-cloud software provider, has launched a Carbon and Power Estimator tool. The new software allows customers to estimate annual power consumption and carbon emissions for various Nutanix solutions, the company said.

Sustainable Tech Partner has reached out to the company to see if the Carbon and Power Estimator tool has a multi-tenant design for channel partners and IT service providers that want to support multiple end-customers from a single dashboard.

Customers can "select a use case" and work their way through the fields to "get approximate power consumption and emissions based on publicly available data and validated methodologies," the company said.

The power consumption and carbon emissions estimates are based on four Nutanix Validated Designs, the company said:

  1. General Virtualization: Hybrid Cloud: AOS 6.5 with AHV On-Premises Validated Design
  2. Databases: Nutanix Databases: AOS 5.20 Validated Design
  3. Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI): Nutanix EUC: AOS 5.20 with AHV Citrix DaaS Validated Design
  4. Kubernetes & Cloud Native: Cloud Native: AOS 6.5 with Red Hat OpenShift Validated Design.

In a prepared statement about the tool, Sammy Zoghlami, senior VP of EMEA at Nutanix, said: “Understanding what drives carbon and power consumption is an important first step for many enterprises looking to advance on their sustainability journey. The Nutanix Carbon and Power Estimator can help enterprises take initiative by educating organisations on factors that can influence their environmental impact.”
