CRN Exclusive: Nutanix CEO On Potential Dell-VMware Merger, Reducing Channel Conflict, And Helping Partners Elevate Their Services
Nutanix Goes Full Steam Ahead
Nutanix has been fielding questions about the future of its Dell hyper-converged infrastructure partnership for years, said Nutanix founder and CEO Dheeraj Pandey in an interview with CRN.
The questions range from "With EMC and Dell coming together, what will happen to our [Dell-Nutanix] XC line?" to "If they become closer to VMware, what is going to happen to the Nutanix relationship?'" said Pandey.
Following Nutanix's strong second fiscal quarter earnings report Thursday in which Pandey said Nutanix's software business is now at a $1 billion run rate, Pandey talked about the contributions partners have made to the company's success, why he respects Dell Technologies CEO Michael Dell, and the keys to reducing channel conflict.
