WATCH: Here’s What You Missed From Nutanix .NEXT

Nutanix announced a slew of cloud-based services at its annual customer and partner conference as it looked back on 10 years of business.

Nutanix celebrated 10 years of “disruption” at its annual customer and partner conference, Next 2019. The company was one of the first to enter the hyperconverged space and now it has its eyes set on its next chapter in cloud.

“The fact that the customers have to take yet another journey with multiple clouds and our partners have to take a journey. They have to get transformed along the way as well. I think we are at a new zero,” said CEO and Co-Founder Dheeraj Pandey.

The conference saw big announcements like new multi-cloud services around Frame. The desktop as a service solution now enables the delivery of applications and desktops in a hybrid cloud environment. It’s among the offerings apart of the newly launched Nutanix Multicloud Services.

“In addition to Frame orchestrating workloads in the public cloud, like Azure and AWS, we can now run virtual desktops on Nutanix AHV,” said Nikola Bozinovic, VP & GM of Desktop Services at Nutanix.

Nutanix acquired Frame in August around the same time the company launched its updated partner charter, a program packed with incentives that emphasize training and partner investments rather than solely revenue. Nutanix’s Chris Kaddaras says they’ve already seen 16,000 partner certifications as a result of the changes.

We also learned more about the new partnership between HPE and Nutanix that integrates Nutanix’s flagship Enterprise Cloud OS software on HPE’s GreenLake’s consumption-based pay-per-use offering. Additionally, the two vendors have created a new joint HCI appliance series, DX Appliances, built with HPE servers and factory-installed Nutanix software. HPE’s Phil Davis, president of Hybrid IT and chief sales officer, discussed the details with CRNtv.
