Nutanix’s New CEO On Leaving VMware To Build $2B Cloud Star

Mark Haranas

‘VMware has a very broad portfolio. Nutanix is smaller, nimble and has the ability to execute fast and is very focused,’ says new Nutanix CEO Rajiv Ramaswami in an interview with CRN.

What will you bring over from VMware to help give Nutanix a leg up?

First of all, Nutanix has always been a best-of-breed player and really a leader. In fact, Nutanix pioneered hyperconverged infrastructure, and Nutanix has been a leader in [Gartner’s Hyperconverged Infrastructure] Magic Quadrant for a while now.

I have the greatest respect for VMware. VMware has a very broad portfolio. Nutanix is smaller, nimble and has the ability to execute fast and is very focused. We are focused on really delivering on hyperconverged infrastructure and making that bridge to helping our customers move to the next hybrid cloud world that they want to go toward. A lot of this is going to be about executing and focusing on our mission, continuing all the while to make sure our customers love what we do and we’re delivering what customers need from us to realize the outcome they want.
