5 Things To Know About The Nutanix-Red Hat Container Deal
In a shot against VMware, the new strategic partnership will include promoting Red Hat OpenShift as the ‘preferred’ option for running Kubernetes on the Nutanix Cloud Platform.
Nutanix ‘A Preferred’ HCI Solution For Red Hat
While Nutanix plans to give greater preference to Red Hat OpenShift as part of the strategic partnership, the collaboration will see Red Hat returning the favor by giving preference to the Nutanix Cloud Platform as a hyperconverged infrastructure (HCI) solution for flagship Red Hat offerings.
Under the partnership, Nutanix Cloud Platform will be treated as “a preferred choice for HCI” for both Red Hat Enterprise Linux and Red Hat OpenShift, the companies said in the news release.
“This will enable customers to deploy virtualized and containerized workloads on a hyperconverged infrastructure, building on the combined benefits of Red Hat’s open hybrid cloud technologies and Nutanix’s hyperconverged offerings,” the companies said in the release.
