HPE, Nutanix partner for hybrid cloud as-a-service platform
Partnership will offer hybrid cloud as-a-service offering
Hewlett Packard Enterprise and Nutanix have announced a global partnership to deliver an integrated hybrid cloud as-a-Service (aaS) solution. This offering will leverage Nutanix's Enterprise Cloud OS software including its built-in, free AHV hypervisor, delivered through HPE GreenLake to provide customers with a fully HPE-managed hybrid cloud. The cloud offering will dramatically lower total cost of ownership and accelerate time to value, Nutanix said.
Under the agreement, Nutanix will 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 solution is intended to address the need for flexibility from IT infrastructure, by providing customers with a fully-managed hybrid cloud infrastructure which can be delivered as-a-service on premise or co-located.
"HPE created the modern on-premises, as a service consumption market with HPE GreenLake. 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 Antonio Neri, president and CEO, HPE. "HPE is expanding its leadership in this market by providing 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. 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," said Dheeraj Pandey, founder, CEO and chairman of Nutanix. "We are delighted to partner with HPE for the benefit of enterprises looking for the right hybrid cloud solution for their business."
