The ‘Customer Choice’ Difference Between HPE And Dell -VMware

HPE CEO Antonio Neri says the company’s blockbuster partnership with Nutanix drives home the critical ‘customer choice’ difference versus the Dell Technologies VMware combination.

“Dell is limited to VMware VxRail,” said Neri. “HPE offers a hybrid cloud— all open solutions. Whatever is in the four walls of the data center that we agree to support with [HPE] Datacenter Care with GreenLake is part of the offer. That means we support VMware, Red Hat, Suse, Nutanix and Google. The point is, we give customers openness and choice.”

All that said, Neri said HPE will continue to continue to be a “strong partner” of VMware. “We have a regular cadence with [VMware CEO] Pat [Gelsinger] and the team,” he said. “But at the same time, we feel we need to give customers a choice and not lock them into one path only. On the public cloud side, both SimpliVity and Nimble are natively able to be consumed inside the Google cloud.”

The HPE Nutanix deal puts Nutanix Enterprise Cloud OS software on HPE’s GreenLake pay per use offering. It also makes Nutanix available on HPE ProLiant and Apollo servers. The new offerings will be available sometime in the third quarter (July 1- Sept. 30).

“We are giving customers the choice,” said Neri of the Nutanix deal. “If you want to go VMware, I understand that—60 percent of virtualization is VMware. We already have the integration of all of this with HPE OneView— whatever infrastructure you want underneath.”
