The TCHPC is one of subordinate institutes of the Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS), while the latter is the nation’s leading academic institution in natural sciences and its supreme scientific and technological advisory body, and national comprehensive research and development center in natural sciences and high technologies. For this award, the TCHPC evaluated a wide range of vendors in the China market and after a rigorous analysis concluded that the Nutanix Virtual Computing Platform was the best product/solution for building infrastructure for Big Data applications.

“Nutanix is proud to be recognized by the leading academic institution in China. This continues recognition of Nutanix’s disruptive platform and our contribution to the whole datacenter and compute/storage discussion.” said Ahim Kho, Managing Director for Nutanix, Greater China. .”The rapid acceptance and deployments of our product and solution sets within China are evidence that enterprises needed a change to their existing architectures. Virtualization has evolved faster than any other technology in recent history but the storage side of the equation had not evolved in more than a decade. In order to complete the data center virtualization vision enterprises needed disruptive technology and that is what Nutanix has brought to the market. The Nutanix virtual computing platform is truly visionary and provides unprecedented enablement of virtualization, compute, storage and infrastructure projects in the datacenter”.

According to TCHPC, Nutanix well exceeded the award criteria, which included performance, scalability, technical advantages over existing alternatives and ease of management for Big Data Infrastructure. Additionally, Nutanix was recognized at being uniquely innovative in it’s technology and disruptive approach to Big Data challenges.

This recognition follows a steady drumbeat of global awards, including the China Computer World Award for Data Center Infrastructure Solutions awarded in September and the VMworld 2013 Gold Award for Private Cloud Computing awarded in August of this year. The latter award was the third consecutive year Nutanix was recognized by the Best of VMworld Awards, making Nutanix one of the most celebrated at VMworld and throughout the virtualization community.

As the fastest growing enterprise infrastructure company of the past decade, the Virtual Computing Platform is rapidly being recognized as the industry’s first converged datacenter platform to independently scale storage and compute resources across multiple hypervisors, including VMware vSphere, Microsoft Hyper-V and open source KVM while offering a whole new array of features and functions needed to deploy todays virtualized datacenters.
