Nutanix announced that Gartner, Inc. has positioned Nutanix as a Leader in the 2018 Gartner Magic Quadrant for Hyperconverged Infrastructure. Nutanix believes its placement in the Leaders quadrant is a strong validation of its leadership in the market it pioneered and of its vision to become the next generation operating system for the enterprise cloud.
A fundamental shift is taking place in enterprise infrastructure as many organizations recognize the benefits hyperconverged infrastructure (HCI) can offer. These organizations have pursued a new architectural design that pairs web-scale engineering with consumer-grade design – making the infrastructure ‘invisible’ so that IT teams can devote more time to business applications. Increasingly, these same organizations are embracing IT strategies that leverage multiple cloud infrastructures and cloud-based services.
Nutanix believes that by utilizing its Enterprise Cloud OS software, customers can realize the simplicity, agility and fractional IT consumption benefits of public cloud, with the control and security needed in the enterprise datacenter. With a unified IT operating environment that melds private, public and distributed clouds, it provides a single point of control for managing infrastructure and applications in any cloud. This delivers a consistent, high-performance and seamless experience for both cloud operators and consumers of cloud-delivered services and applications.
“To us, our strong position in this Magic Quadrant says it all, and we couldn’t be prouder,” said Dheeraj Pandey, co-founder and CEO, Nutanix. “We believe this stand alone assessment of the HCI space comes at a key inflection point in the market. We are now seeing enterprises of all sizes, across all industries, embrace our pioneering HCI solution as a fundamental element of their multi-cloud architectures. And combined with the Nutanix Enterprise Cloud OS, we feel our mission is freeing customers to build their infrastructure, run their applications, and choose their cloud platform -- all on their terms, not a vendor’s lock-in agenda. Ultimately, we believe long-term market leadership starts with this freedom.”
