Leader: Nutanix

Nutanix took home the gold as the top HCI provider in terms of execution on the Magic Quadrant as well as ranking second for vision. The San Jose, Calif.-based hyperconverged infrastructure pioneer has transitioned over the past two years into a software-only HCI vendor while at the same time vastly expanding its product portfolio. Nutanix’s stock recently surged after a successful first fiscal quarter thanks to huge traction in large enterprises and with new customers.

Nutanix’s HCI offering is composed of its software stack, which includes software-defined storage; AOS; an infrastructure control plane, Prism; and its AHV hypervisor. In 2019, the company introduced its Nutanix Era Database-as-a-Service offering; application self-service and app life-cycle management Nutanix Calm; Nutanix Objects for S3 object storage; and Xi Leap disaster recovery service. Nutanix offers subscription, term-based software licenses that are portable across hardware platforms and clouds.

Strength: Nutanix has strong customer loyalty while its software platform attracts customers who prioritize flexibility.

Weakness: Gartner said cultural “resistance” within some infrastructure teams to adopt AHV prevents IT leaders from taking advantage of additional Nutanix products.
