Virtual machine migrations for Enterprise Cloud infrastructures

Simplify migrations to Nutanix Enterprise Cloud

Nutanix Xtract accelerates the adoption of Nutanix Enterprise Cloud by providing infrastructure-centric migration, and automating the mundane and cumbersome steps required to manually migrate or rebuild VMs on the new environment.

Xtract for VMs automates “lift and shift” VM migrations and applies the best practices needed for optimal performance, enabling easy adoption of Nutanix Enterprise Cloud for existing workloads.

  • Easy migrations with one-click simplicity
  • Eliminates manual and error-prone mundane tasks
  • Near-zero service outage, with full cutover control
  • Enables migration testing, increasing assurance of migration success
  • Cost efficient, as licenses are included with all Nutanix software editions

Simple VM Migrations

Adopting new infrastructure platforms against tight timescales will often require organizations to migrate pre-existing workloads. Nutanix Xtract simplifies this process with infrastructure-level bulk VM migrations, removing the friction associated with onboarding new IT infrastructure, and enabling businesses to quickly leverage the full potential of Nutanix Enterprise Cloud, with near-zero VM or application service outage during migrations.

Xtract provides granular, project based control via an easy to use UI for automated workload migrations in a simple three-step process.

Define the migration plan

Specify the source cluster with VM selection from individual VMs through to a whole vCenter, and specify the target Nutanix AHV infrastructure and any VM network mapping.

Migrate with minimal downtime

Non-disruptive replication of VMs via VMware’s VADP ensures consistent and efficient replication. Whether VMs are powered up or off, they are kept up-to-date until ready to cutover.


Automatic AHV device driver injection and complete cutover process control keeps application and business disruption to a minimum. Cutover is quick, requiring just a source VM shutdown and reboot of the new VM.
