Nutanix named as leader in Gartner report

By

COMPANY NEWS: The Gartner November 2021 Magic Quadrant for Hyperconverged Infrastructure Software has named hybrid multicloud computing Nutanix as a Leader in its report.

Nutanix says this is the fifth year that the company has been named as a leader in the report, believing the continued recognition can be attributed to its expanded and enhanced HCI software capabilities and its customer support, which has earned an average of 90 net promoter score (NPS) for the past seven years.

“Businesses are increasingly embracing hybrid multi-cloud strategies and we’ve seen customers rapidly adopt HCI solutions to simplify data centre modernisation efforts while capitalising on the added automation, ease of use, agility and full software stack capabilities that HCI enables,” comments Nutanix chief technology officer Rajiv Mirani.

“We believe that our continued recognition in the Gartner Magic Quadrant for Hyperconverged Infrastructure Software demonstrates Nutanix’s commitment to providing expanded solution capabilities and support that results in the success of our customers.”

As organisations plan for the future, Nutanix says businesses are continuing to adopt cloud operating models and modernise on-premises infrastructure. Organisations can respond in real time to the IT landscape with hybrid multi-cloud solutions offering the benefits of both public and private clouds.

HCI solutions have emerged as an effective tool to deliver datacentre modernisation, as well as cut down on the cost and complexity that accompany hybrid multi-cloud deployments.

“HCI stacks can be turnkey hybrid clouds, providing infrastructure management and cloud services both on-premises and in hyperscale public clouds. They have effectively replaced build-it-yourself hybrid cloud technologies such as OpenStack,” Gartner says.

Gartner also notes that, “the most advanced HCI stacks provide the full stack of software-defined infrastructure — compute, storage and networking. SDI is a key enabling technology for automation, hybrid clouds and edge infrastructure.”

“In terms of maturity, Nutanix was far ahead of all of the other HCI players,” comments USC Marshall School of Business associate director of operations and infrastructure services Dan Lewis.

“We were really impressed with Nutanix, and how quickly we could get everything set up in a compact environment without sacrificing any performance. That was the gating factor for us, because if we were going to switch to an all-in-one system, it had to be powerful and resilient. The solution had to be able to survive node failures, but also block failures and network failures. Nutanix Cloud Platform was the only platform that met all of our requirements.”

With HCI at its core, the Nutanix Cloud Platform offers unified management. Nutanix has recently enhanced its HCI software capabilities to break down silos in multi-cloud operations, including built-in enterprise-grade virtualisation, virtual networking, security, business continuity, and disaster recovery.

Nutanix also updated the Nutanix Cloud Platform to simplify data management and optimise database and big data workload performance for the most critical applications.

This includes expanded unified storage capabilities with a focus on performance, scale, mobility and governance for objects, files and databases. Additionally, Nutanix database service Era delivers one-click storage scaling and rich role-based access control for database management across hybrid multi-cloud environments.

Nutanix continues to strengthen its platform for cloud native applications and recently partnered with Red Hat to deliver open hybrid multi-cloud solutions to give customers access to run Red Hat OpenShift on Nutanix’s AHV hypervisor and utilise the storage, networking, management, and security capabilities built into Nutanix’s HCI solution for a best-in-class Kubernetes environment.

Nutanix Cloud Platform and AHV are also certified for Red Hat Enterprise Linux allowing customers to deploy virtualised and containerised workloads on a hyperconverged infrastructure, building on the combined benefits of Red Hat’s open hybrid cloud technologies and Nutanix’s hyperconverged offerings.
