Nutanix, HPE Partner on Private Cloud Service and Hyperconverged Appliances
Nutanix has teamed up with Hewlett Packard Enterprise to make its hyperconverged software available as a managed private cloud service and on HPE-branded appliances. Analysts say the partnership, announced today, benefits both companies in their effort to broaden their appeal to enterprise customers that want to take advantage of hyperconverged infrastructure, which integrates servers, storage and virtualization into small form-factor appliances and is considered more cost-effective and easier to deploy and manage than traditional approaches.
