At the .NEXT Conference, Nutanix has now announced the launch of its Elevate Technology Alliance Program. Created for application, hardware and infrastructure partners, the new program provides more in-depth access to products, a developer toolkit with APIs and a path for technical validation, marketing opportunities and sales engagements.
The Elevate Technology Alliance Program offers three levels of membership: Build, Scale and Transform. The Build level is for any business that wants to establish a partnership with Nutanix, validate its technology, and co-market the joint solution. It provides access to Nutanix marketing and technical resources. As partners engage further, they can progress to the Scale level, which enables them to build more targeted technology solutions for specific use cases and market segments. Partners can benefit from additional training, marketing and sales benefits. The Transform level further rewards partners who are committed to long-term product and sales engagements with Nutanix. It enables partners to develop strategic solutions and programs aimed at achieving significant revenue growth for both companies.
Through Elevate, partners can now develop validated solutions with Nutanix that add significant value to joint customers. All partners will be eligible to apply for formal “Nutanix Ready” recognition, which signifies their interoperability with the Nutanix platform in various categories including: Management and Operations, Backup and Recovery, Applications and OS, Desktop Virtualization, Hybrid Cloud, Networking and Security and Application Development.
“Our Elevate Technology Alliance Program has been developed to build a robust ecosystem of technology partners committed to radically transforming enterprise data centers,” said Sudheesh Nair, SVP, Worldwide Sales and Business Development, Nutanix. “Joining the program demonstrates partners’ commitment to this mission and helps them tap into product, marketing, training and sales resources which will help us bring new solutions to market.”
“Commvault is excited to join the Nutanix partner ecosystem to enable customers to deploy their mission-critical applications on the industry’s leading hyper-converged solution,” said Brian Allison, VP of Worldwide Alliances at Commvault. “Our partnership will enable tight product integration to bring Commvault’s data management capabilities to workloads across the entire Nutanix product line, providing tremendous value to our customers.”
“Customers rely on F5 solutions in a variety of deployment models, from on-premises solutions to private and public cloud environments. Nutanix and F5 are working together to give organizations architectural freedom to combine services in hyper-converged infrastructures, with tested and validated solutions customers can be confident in,” commented Calvin Rowland, SVP of Business Developement, F5 Networks. “The Elevate technology alliance program helps position F5’s powerful layer 4–7 application services—including availability, scalability, and security—within a unified framework that’s easy to deploy and manage.”
