Leader: Nutanix

Product Evaluated: Enterprise Cloud OS version AOS 5.8

Product Score: 4.38

Strategy Score: 4.53

The San Jose, Calif.-based hyper-converged pioneer ranks the highest for overall HCI product offering and second for overall strategy. On the technology side, Nutanix's Enterprise Cloud OS was the leader in storage functions and runner up in platform support. The company scored the highest in product manageability and ease of operations and corporate strategy in this report, as well as a perfect 5 in product strategy.

Nutanix has maintained its position on top of the HCI market through its innovation, R&D investment, strong sales momentum, partnerships and ability to gain new customers from all segments and geographies. Since launching its IPO in 2016, the company has more than doubled its headcount and multiplied its million-dollar and repeat clients. Nutanix is striving to make hybrid cloud a reality by partnering with the likes of Google Cloud Platform to integrate public cloud services with its on-premises infrastructure, while also launching a slew of new HCI and channel offerings. Forrester said some customers raised concerns that Nutanix may fall victim to another full-stack competitor.
