HPE OneSphere is a multi-cloud management service that unifies management across different public clouds, on-premise private clouds and software-defined infrastructure.
Nutanix Calm is a multi-cloud software management platform that allows users to seamlessly choose, distribute, and manage business applications throughout an infrastructure. Integrated into the platform are lifecycle management and application automation. Users have the ability to control all features of the application’s lifecycle and can define applications through simple blueprints that can be created using industry-standard skills. These blueprints are generated through code with a Python-based DSL or through UI.
Once a blueprint is created, Calm users can easily publish them to end users through the Nutanix Marketplace, which will immediately revamp an intricate provisioning ticket into a straightforward one-click request. Nutanix Calm provides users with improved agility while eliminating human errors, application development and modernization, unified multi-cloud coordination, and automated self-service with centralized control. In addition, the software offers a user-friendly and interactive GUI to assist in managing infrastructures more easily.

Reviews from Real Users
Nutanix Calm is a software of choice for developers looking for an application that supports automation and lifecycle management, which are both integrated into the platform. Users particularly like the blueprints and templates, as well as the Nutanix Marketplace.
Sudarshan S., a leader of environments and automation at a financial services firm, notes, "The blueprints and templates are very nice and easy to use. They are very valuable because we can configure the entirety of an environment as a template and reuse it multiple times."
Fabian S., an infrastructure consultant at Vopak, writes, "I really like the Nutanix Marketplace a lot. We publish standard workloads there and that, in combination with the Projects, allows for self-service, which is the most powerful feature of Calm."
"The scripting, where you can use libraries, is a valuable feature.... When we create a machine, we use IPAM from Infoblox and we can get an IP address. It's one platform to script and we can then use all the APIs to complete the scripts. It gives us a central management tool from which we can do a lot of things automatically," explains Ilan S, Project Manager at a healthcare company.
