“What VMware is going down the path of is what Microsoft went down the path of before [Microsoft CEO] Satya [Nadella] – all Windows, nothing but Windows and the fact that Microsoft apps are the only apps that matter,” said Nutanix CEO Dheeraj Pandey in an interview with CRN.

Pandey On The Record

Nutanix founder and CEO Dheeraj Pandey believes VMware’s technology roadmap is similar to Microsoft’s years ago in terms of openness and interoperability.

“What VMware is going down the path of is what Microsoft went down the path of before [Microsoft CEO] Satya [Nadella] – all Windows, nothing but Windows and the fact that Microsoft apps are the only apps that matter,” said Pandey in an interview with CRN. “That’s the mistake that we don’t want to make.”

At Nutanix .NEXT last week, the San Jose, Calif.-based hyper-converged infrastructure pioneer propelled itself into the secondary storage market with Nutanix Mine as well as a slew of enhancement features to its cloud services capabilities, including allowing Xi Leap to provide disaster recovery services for workloads running VMware’s ESXi hypervisor.

In the interview, Pandey also talks about competition with VMware, Nutanix’s new AWS and Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) partnerships and his message to channel partners.
