Nutanix, Google collaborate in the cloud

By

Enterprise cloud computing company Nutanix has announced a strategic alliance with Google Cloud which the companies say will address technology opportunities for building and operating hybrid clouds combining cloud architectures and scalable public cloud environments.

The two companies have also agreed to collaborate on Internet of Things (IoT) use-cases marrying real-time edge intelligence with core cloud computing.

“Hybrid Cloud needs be a two-way street,” said Sudheesh Nair, president, Nutanix.

“The strategic alliance with Google demonstrates our commitment to simplify operations for our customers with a single enterprise cloud OS across both private and public clouds - with ubiquity, extensibility and intuitive design.”

The announcement of the alliance with Google cloud coincided with Nutanix’s announcement that Enterprise Cloud OS would be delivered as a full software stack with new multi-cloud capabilities in Nutanix Calm and a new cloud service called Nutanix Xi Cloud Services.

“Nutanix and Google are poised to disrupt traditional IT and cloud computing, " said Ashok Belani, executive vice-president Technology, Schlumberger.  

"We've leveraged both solutions for our private and public cloud services, to drive innovation in the oil and gas industry.”

“Hybrid Cloud needs be a two-way street,” said Nair. “The strategic alliance with Google demonstrates our commitment to simplify operations for our customers with a single enterprise cloud OS across both private and public clouds - with ubiquity, extensibility and intuitive design.”

Nutanix says as a result of the partnership, joint customers will be able to deploy and manage both cloud-based and traditional enterprise applications as a unified public cloud service, while blending the Nutanix environment with Google Cloud Platform.

Nan Boden, head of Global Technology Partners, Google Cloud, said with the strategic alliance with Nutanix, Google is addressing “one of the most pressing technology challenges faced by enterprises – the ability to manage hybrid cloud applications without sacrificing security or scalability”.

“Partners like Nutanix are essential for us to build a thriving ecosystem and help enterprises innovate faster."

The integration of Nutanix Calm and Google Cloud Platform will be available in the first quarter of 2018 and Nutanix says other features are in development.
