Nutanix SVP: Edge Computing, Not Public Cloud, ‘The Center Of Gravity’

‘We need to make it equally, if not more convenient, for people to create applications on the edge than in the cloud,’ says Satyam Vaghani, SVP and GM of Nutanix’s IoT and AI business in an interview with CRN.

Where does Hardis Group fit into Nutanix’s strategy?

The problem we tried to solve this year was, ‘How do we make the delivery of IoT applications as simple as it is to install a Chrome browser on your laptop?’ If you think about it, IoT tends to almost frighten the user from getting into such projects because there are so many moving parts -- you have to deal with AI concepts, you have to deal with clouds, with edge computing, sensors – you don’t even know where to start. To do that, you can partner with people like how we did with Hardis Group. What we did this year was, ‘Can we actually make technology which makes the delivery of IoT applications extremely easy to the whole world?’ Think about it as Netflix. Movies have always existed, but the big achievement Netflix did was distribution, not the creation. It made it so easy that now you can binge watch 12 movies at a time. So can you make the distribution of ridiculously complicated IoT applications very easy? It required the invention of all our edge computing around the centralized planet-scale management, but it also required us to work with some of these very highly vertically focused ISVs and SIs. Hardis Group is a great example of one of those providers.
