Nutanix Exceeds $80M Annualized Run Rate in Only Its Sixth Quarter of Selling
Fastest Growing Enterprise Infrastructure Company of the Past Decade
Expands International Footprint, Partner Network and Employee Headcount
San Jose, California. May 8, 2013.
Nutanix, the leading provider of hyper-efficient, massively scalable and elegantly simple datacenter infrastructure solutions, today released information regarding the company’s performance since shipping its first Virtual Computing Platform in late 2011. In just six quarters, Nutanix has grown at 80 percent quarter-over-quarter and achieved an annualized run rate of over $80 million, eclipsing the market adoption velocity of all storage, networking and infrastructure startups since the early 2000s.
Over the past year, Nutanix has also made significant strides in growing its customer and partner base, scaling customer deployments, adding significant headcount, expanding internationally and doubling the size of its headquarters. Global 2000 companies, medium to large sized enterprises and government agencies have overwhelmingly responded to Nutanix’s innovative solution for enterprise datacenters, which seamlessly and natively converges compute and storage into a single appliance.
According to Gartner, “IT organizations are moving toward data center convergence, forcing storage architects to re-evaluate SAN protocol selections, storage processes, and best practices.”
Recently named a “Cool Vendor in Server Technology” by Gartner, Nutanix was recognized by the analyst firm for its clustered, appliance-based approach to compute and storage, which effectively eliminates the need for a storage area network.
To keep up with the company’s growth and customer demand for Nutanix’s breakthrough approach to datacenter architectures, Nutanix has added more than 100 employees in the past 12 months and has opened new offices in Belgium, Hong Kong, Japan, the Netherlands, Singapore, South Korea and the United Kingdom during the same time period, including parts depots across the world.
“Nutanix can be regarded as a blueprint for this new class of infrastructure offering …Brought to the market by a team of engineers, including contributors to Google’s file system, Nutanix now has a management team with a strong track record in bringing new server technology to the market.” – Report: Evaluate New Converged Infrastructures to Underpin the Software-Defined Data Center, Forrester Research, Inc., March 20, 2013.
“From start to finish, working with the Nutanix team has been excellent! The hardware is rock solid, the support top notch, and the engineers I’ve engaged with have been on point from both an implementation perspective, but also for any production support questions as well.” – Dave Notarangelo, director of infrastructure services at Financial Partners, Inc.
“Nutanix is doing for the datacenter what the smart phone did for mobile industry. Just as the iPhone packaged communication, applications and entertainment into one easy to use handset, Nutanix has pulled off a similar feat for the datacenter by seamlessly combining compute and storage into a single, highly scalable box. The result has been six quarters of record-breaking sales and resounding industry traction as the demand for our Virtual Computing Platform continues to grow exponentially.” – Dheeraj Pandey, founder and CEO of Nutanix
