An IBM & Nutanix initiative: Are you ready for a cloud that scales with your enterprise?

Share this post:

There is no denying that the world is going digital.  At IBM we have been helping organizations to modernize their IT infrastructure and data management, tapping into advanced analytics and real-time insights for competitive advantage. If your organization is one of many currently undergoing digital transformation, and you are investigating how your business can benefit from the adoption of a cloud strategy, our initiative with Nutanix will bring you new options.
Modernizing your data center and embarking on a path to cloud doesn’t need to be complicated, nor should it be a hassle. But there are many aspects to modernization and cloud adoption that organizations should consider, such as infrastructure choice and cloud-optimized software solutions. What if you could build and manage an enterprise cloud with ease and simplicity? Would you sign up for better economics and less complexity? I know I would.

For those reasons, IBM is collaborating with Nutanix with plans to help our clients both modernize and simplify the data center while also bringing in value-add infrastructure. We want to help clients revolutionize their data center and get to the cloud so they can adapt to evolving business and industry demands. With this collaboration, we are striving to bring you new options and to provide the simple but robust infrastructure and solutions that your organization needs for success.

What IBM will bring to the table: Infrastructure designed for the cognitive era

IBM will bring its Power Systems platform to this initiative. These robust servers are designed to deliver high performance and are security-rich. They can provide the availability needed for data-intensive workloads, readying your organization for the cognitive era.  Designed to deliver efficiency whether deployed in a private, public and hybrid cloud, Power Systems benefit from a wide range of open technologies, many stemming from collaboration with fellow OpenPOWER Foundation members.

What Nutanix will bring to the table: Streamlined enterprise cloud management

Nutanix, a leader in hyper-converged infrastructure, will bring simplicity, agility and scalability to the table. Nutanix solutions are designed to allow customers to simplify and centralize the management of infrastructure, making it nearly invisible. Organizations can look forward to spending less time managing hardware and devoting more time to applications and services that power their business.

Combining robust infrastructure with hyper-converged solutions

With this IBM and Nutanix collaboration we look forward to helping our customers simplify the complexity of their data center modernization and cloud migration while deploying new cognitive applications that can transform the enterprise.

The IBM and Nutanix initiative will bring options for clients and a seamless experience for these clients, and will be sold exclusively through IBM sales force and channel partners. Specific timelines, models and supported server configurations will be announced at the time of availability.
