Nutanix Selects WhiteGold as A/NZ Distribution Partner

Extends Nutanix Partner Program to Australian and New Zealand Resellers and Integrators

SYDNEY, August 12, 2013

Nutanix, the leading provider of hyper-efficient, massively scalable and elegantly simple datacenter infrastructure solutions, has entered into a distribution agreement with WhiteGold Solutions covering the Australian and New Zealand markets. WhiteGold’s Virtual Computing (VC) Gold division will offer Nutanix’s full portfolio of Virtual Computing Platform products to value added reseller and system integration partners in the region.

Nutanix recently announced the Nutanix Partner Network, an end-to-end partner program designed to maximize partner productivity and profitability. By partnering with WhiteGold Solutions, Nutanix expands its distribution network and further validates its 100 percent commitment to its channel partners.

The Nutanix Virtual Computing Platform is a converged datacenter solution that consolidates the compute tiers and storage tiers into a single, integrated appliance eliminating the need for a storage area network (SAN) or network attached storage (NAS). Nutanix’s modular building-block design allows companies to remove IT complexity by starting with small deployments and growing incrementally into very large cluster installations as business needs dictate.

“Nutanix was introduced into the Australian and New Zealand markets in 2012 by forward-looking resellers who understood how our converged compute and storage platform would uniquely address the needs of their clients,” said Matt Young, vice president APAC, Nutanix. “We formally opened our own office in the region earlier this year with the prime objectives being the rapid enablement and go-to-market support of our channel partners. The appointment of WhiteGold is a critical part of this strategy and further illustrates our commitment to the channel.”

Leigh Howard, commercial director at WhiteGold, said the distributor had been looking for a new technology to add to its datacenter portfolio in response to the dramatic changes happening in that market as companies continued to adopt cloud computing and virtualization at a staggering rate.

“The accelerated demand for more efficient, high-performance and scalable datacenter infrastructure gathers pace daily, and converged infrastructure has helped enterprises around the globe address this growing demand,” said Howard. “We waited two years for a true, blue ocean, game-changing technology to add to our datacenter eco-system as the core, converged infrastructure platform – and Nutanix represents exactly that.

“After researching and considering a number of new entrants to take to market in flash storage, flash memory, virtual server and converged infrastructure solutions, we truly believe that none of them match the simplicity, scale-out capability and completeness of the Nutanix Virtual Computing Platform, period. This is not evolution in the datacenter – it’s revolution,” added Howard.

“We were questioning the market for new, disruptive innovation in next-generation technology to spearhead our datacenter technology stack,” said Dominic Whitehand, managing director, WhiteGold. “In Nutanix, we have the perfect answer. We will enter the market with our renowned passion and aggression to match the significance of Nutanix being the fastest infrastructure start-up in the last decade. As of now, we are actively looking to recruit partners into the Nutanix Partner Network from our extensive network of resellers, integrators and datacenter providers. With the elegance and efficiency of the Nutanix Virtual Computing Platform solution far exceeding other data centre infrastructure offerings, it is certain to be well received by our channel and their customers.”
