Nutanix Enterprise Cloud Now on HPE Servers

HPE and Nutanix Announce Global Partnership

Nutanix and HPE have formed a global partnership to deliver Nutanix Enterprise Cloud software on HPE server technology.

Nutanix will introduce a new family of integrated appliances featuring HPE ProLiant and Apollo servers, with Nutanix software factory-installed and ready for deployment. Nutanix customers who want to run their Nutanix Enterprise Cloud on HPE server technology will soon have access to a complete portfolio of turnkey appliances for all use cases, and all applications.

HPE will also make Nutanix software available in the future via the HPE GreenLake service.

Nutanix on HPE ProLiant and Apollo Servers

HPE servers are fully tested and certified by Nutanix to run Nutanix Enterprise Cloud OS software. HPE customers are able to leverage Nutanix solutions to build an enterprise cloud delivering the simplicity and agility of public cloud services, with the control and security needed in private cloud environments. ProLiant and Apollo customers receive the same Nutanix compute, storage, virtualization and network functionality – plus the company’s intuitive, consumer-grade management that has made Nutanix the industry’s most popular hyperconverged solution.

  • Build a complete infrastructure stack with just HPE servers and Nutanix Enterprise Cloud software.
  • Eliminate expensive and complex SANs and simplify your datacenter using ProLiant or Apollo server storage resources.
  • Radically simplify infrastructure management with one-click software upgrades, infrastructure scaling and troubleshooting – freeing IT staff to focus on business applications rather than the infrastructure.
  • Start small and scale your infrastructure without limits by adding ProLiant or Apollo servers one at a time.
  • Cut the cost of virtualization with the Nutanix native AHV hypervisor and integrated virtualization management.
  • Easily add Nutanix Enterprise Cloud software to your HPE servers with no change to your architecture or operations.
