Nutanix

CEO: Dheeraj Pandey

While Nutanix technically unveiled its first formal channel program in the 12th day of the second half of the year, the San Jose, Calif.-based converged infrastructure vendor earlier this year unveiled plans to scale out its channel base by recruiting more partners.

Nutanix also hired longtime solution provider Steve Kaplan, the former vice president of virtualization and cloud computing at Greenbelt, Md.-based solution provider Presidio, as its new vice president of channels and strategic sales.

It hasn't been only channel news for Nutanix. The company this year also released its latest converged compute and storage solutions including the NX-6000, which allows storage capacity to be scaled as needed for large data sets, and the NX-1000k, designed for small and midsize businesses or enterprise branch offices.
