With both Dell and HPE coming out with new offerings on VMware Cloud Foundation, how do you see Nutanix’s partnership with Dell and HPE playing out?

A lot of the cloud is about delivery and operations. When I say ‘delivery,’ I mean identity, billing and payments, and making the operations one-click. A lot of work that we’ve done in the last 10 years is to make Infrastructure as a Service fully automated. Not just day-zero provisioning, but day two and beyond [around] operation workflow, shrinking and growing the cloud, making clouds elastic, upgrading and patching them. A lot of the work that Nutanix is doing is to really help with the Dell server patching and HPE server patching. You’re seeing security vulnerabilities emerging in the space of hardware and firmware. Look at Intel [having a vulnerability] really almost every quarter now. So a lot of Nutanix’s workloads are becoming the new standard for automation including in the private cloud itself. There’s a ton of work that we’ve done with other server vendors like Fujitsu, Lenovo, Hitachi and others around the world. Now Nutanix software runs on more than 20 server platforms. This is the same company that three years ago was an appliance company and now our software runs on all these different server platforms. At the core of all of this is that they all need to work the same. So with standardization, that comes with overall automation of these servers in whatever cloud they are in. Because without automation, there is no cloud.
