Lenovo and Nutanix will introduce a new family of hyperconverged appliances built on Lenovo’s enterprise systems and powered by the award-winning Nutanix software.
The joint solution, featuring several of the latest Intel technologies, will run nearly all workloads, including enterprise applications, databases, virtualized desktops, and big data analytics, with improved efficiency and scalability.
To take advantage of the rapidly growing demand for hyper convergence platforms, Lenovo is making sizeable investments in a dedicated skilled global sales team. The combined solution will also be sold through Lenovo channel partners worldwide, as well as by Lenovo’s broader enterprise sales teams. Additionally, Lenovo and Nutanix are planning substantial investments in platform engineering and development, as well as aggressive go-to-market initiatives.
“Lenovo can bring a new perspective to the global enterprise space. We do not have to protect old ways of thinking or entrenched ideas. Instead, we can build our business on innovation, and partner freely with the most innovative, leading companies in this space to create new solutions,” said Yang Yuanqing, Chairman and CEO, Lenovo. “Nutanix’s well recognized technology leadership, paired with our global reach, will enable both companies to thrive by helping customers dramatically reduce complexity in datacenters of all sizes.”
Dheeraj Pandey, Founder and CEO, Nutanix, said, “Partnering with Lenovo is a critical milestone in our journey to bring invisible infrastructure, with the efficiencies of web-scale technology and power of consumer-grade design, to companies of all sizes.”
Lenovo and Nutanix expect to jointly announce the new solutions next month at the Gartner Data Center, Infrastructure & Operations Management Conference in Las Vegas, Nevada.
