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.

Can you double down on Nutanix being nimbler than VMware?

For us, the HCI market and moving to the hybrid cloud market—it’s big. It’s huge. There are going to be multiple players in it. We aim to be a leader in it. We are already a leader in hyperconverged, and HCI goes to hybrid cloud infrastructure. I think we can work to boost our position there as well. We’ve got the fundamental know-how, the technology, the innovation capability, the ability to build products that customers can consume in a very simple way. Now, we’ve coupled that with a go-to-market focus on delivering this in a form that customers can consume much easier.
