Nutanix Named a Leader in Gartner 2020 Magic Quadrant for Hyperconverged Infrastructure Software for Fourth Year in a Row. Company Recognized for Hyperconverged Infrastructure Capabilities and Positioned Highest in Execution of All Vendors.
Nutanix (NASDAQ: NTNX), a leader in private cloud, hybrid and multicloud computing, has announced it has been named a Leader by Gartner, Inc. in the December 2020 Magic Quadrant for Hyperconverged Infrastructure Software. Nutanix was recognized for its hyperconverged infrastructure software capabilities. The company is also positioned furthest to the top, as compared to all vendors.
More companies are demanding software-defined solutions to drive their critical IT initiatives and digital transformation efforts. According to Gartner, “the HCI software market has two distinct customer types that align with current market conditions: Those seeking solutions that extend to solving more hybrid and public-cloud-related challenges, and those looking to solve more niche-related use cases or geographically based challenges.”
Nutanix believes that, as a result Gartner focused this year’s 2020 Magic Quadrant for Hyperconverged Infrastructure Software exclusively on vendors able to run their solutions on multiple hardware platforms. This is an important shift in the industry, and a strong validation of the company’s transition from hardware to software more than two years ago.
“This year has been a strong year of growth for Nutanix despite a backdrop of global uncertainty, as our customers embrace reliable, performant and cost-effective IT solutions to support their needs during COVID and beyond. During this time, we continued innovating and strengthening our hyperconverged infrastructure software, which we believe contributed to our execution placement in this year’s 2020 Magic Quadrant, while extending our hybrid cloud infrastructure to public cloud, starting with AWS” “We believe the architectural differentiation of our software, enabling customers to run nearly any workload in a multicloud environment, as well as our relentless focus on customer delight, sets us apart from the competition.”said Rajiv Mirani, Chief Technology Officer at Nutanix
This recognition follows several important announcements from Nutanix setting the stage for the company’s vision for the future of IT, from the launch of Nutanix Clusters on AWS, the announcement of Nutanix Clusters on Azure, and the release of the company’s new multicloud Platform as a Service solution Karbon Platform Services. Nutanix believes that the key to digital transformation lies in unified hybrid and multicloud solutions seamlessly bringing together virtualized and cloud native IT environments to deliver enterprise the flexibility and simplicity they need to succeed.
“Nutanix not only converges technologies, their software has enabled us to converge infrastructure, teams, and opportunities”. “By combining IT specialists into a single operations group, we can now see our end-to-end environment, work collaboratively, and make better decisions for the business. Our partnership with Nutanix makes IT visibility, efficiency, and innovation possible.”said Kevin Priest, Senior Director, The Home Depot
