Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) and Nutanix (NTNX) today announced a global partnership to deliver a hybrid cloud as a service (AAS) solution to the market.
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 that purportedly lowers total cost of ownership and accelerates time to value, they said.
Businesses are under constant pressure to innovate and accelerate digital transformation, the said. However, current legacy approaches to hybrid IT present many challenges, including complex systems that require large IT operations staff, increasing software licensing and operating costs, and concerns over vendor lock-in. As a result, businesses are losing flexibility in a world that demands choice and agility, the firms said.
The HPE-Nutanix partnership addresses these challenges by delivering an attractive alternative that reduces cost and complexity. The combined offering will provide a fully managed hybrid cloud infrastructure delivered AAS and deployed in customers’ data centres.
The combination of HPE GreenLake and Nutanix Enterprise Cloud OS software is designed for customers who want to use Nutanix, including its AHV hypervisor technology, to support a range of use cases, the firms said.
