Pandey On VMware, Innovation And Channel Changes In 2019

The innovation engine is roaring loudly at hyper-converged pioneer Nutanix which is getting VMware worried, according to Nutanix CEO and co-founder Dheeraj Pandey.

"VMware's worried about Nutanix more than they're worried about any other company," said Pandey, in an interview with CRN. "They're obsessed with competition, while we are obsessed with customers."

Pandey was responding to VMware's criticism that his company's innovation strategy was a "copycat" of VMware following Nutanix's acquisition of cloud-based desktop and application delivery specialist Frame this year. Last week, San Jose, Calif.-based Nutanix reported fiscal first quarter revenue earnings of $313 million, up 14 percent year over year, as well as an increase in its customer base to now 11,500 clients. Pandey spoke to CRN about competition with VMware, new products and partner programs ahead around Xi Leap, Xi Frame and Nutanix Files.
