HPE and Nutanix to Deliver Hybrid Cloud as a Service

Published On: April 22, 2019Categories: Buzz, Uncategorized

Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) and Nutanix, Inc. have announced a global partnership to deliver an integrated hybrid cloud as a Service solution. This offering will leverage Nutanix’s Enterprise Cloud OS software including its built-in, AHV hypervisor, delivered through HPE GreenLake to deliver fully managed hybrid cloud. As part of the agreement, Nutanix will also enable its channel partners to directly sell HPE servers combined with Nutanix’s Enterprise Cloud OS software so that customers can purchase an integrated appliance.

The strategy targets mission-critical workloads and big data applications; virtualized tier-1 workloads such as SAP, Oracle, and Microsoft; and also supports virtualized big data applications, such as Splunk and Hadoop.

Anticipated benefits include expense reductions and accelerated time to value.

“Hundreds of global customers now leverage HPE GreenLake to get the benefits of a cloud experience combined with the security, governance, and application performance of an on-premises environment, while paying for the service based on actual consumption,” said HPE president and CEO Antonio Neri. “Today, HPE is expanding its leadership in this market by providing an additional choice to customers seeking a hybrid cloud alternative that promises greater agility at lower costs.”

“Our customers tell us that it’s their applications that matter most,” said Dheeraj Pandey, founder, CEO and chairman of Nutanix. “Our partnership with HPE will provide Nutanix customers with another choice to make their infrastructure invisible so they can focus on business-critical apps, not the underlying technology.”

The combined offering is expected to be available in Calendar Q3 2019 and will be showcased by the two companies at a variety of customer conferences and industry events this year.
