Nutanix Launches Web-scale Wish Datacenter Makeover Campaign
Global Program Delivers Benefits of Web-Scale Technology to Non-Profit Organizations
SAN JOSE, CALIF. – October 15, 2014 – Nutanix, the web-scale converged infrastructure company, today announced it is bringing the benefits of Web-scale IT to non-profit organizations with the launch of Web-scale Wish – a project that will donate $500,000 in datacenter infrastructure to non-profit organizations. Often associated only with major corporations, Web-scale technology’s unprecedented levels of agility and operational efficiency in the datacenter benefit businesses of all sizes and in any industry by allowing them to scale their infrastructures on-demand.
As part of the campaign, a non-profit organization chosen by the IT community will receive a 48-hour web-scale datacenter makeover package, which will be fully implemented by Nutanix. The prize includes three NX-3050 nodes, three Ultimate Software Licenses, three years of Nutanix Platinum Plus support and a two-day on-site installation service.
Anyone can nominate organizations that they feel would benefit from a datacenter makeover by November 21st.
To be entered into Web-scale Wish, organizations must:
- Be a non-profit, non-partisan organization based in the United States, Canada, Australia, New Zealand or the United Kingdom
- Have a currently working datacenter that could benefit from web-scale converged infrastructure
- Be able to complete and meet Environment Assessment criteria
The nomination period will be open online until Friday, November 21st. The final three organizations will then be featured in a virtual event on Wednesday, December 10th where the public will have the opportunity to vote to determine the Grand Prize recipient.
“Web-scale IT can benefit all organizations, not just major corporations, and this project demonstrates Nutanix’s commitment to ensuring that the companies that give back to our community can realize its value,” said Howard Ting, SVP marketing and product management, Nutanix. “Non-profit organizations can benefit tremendously from more flexible infrastructures, but are often limited by resources when it comes to their implementation. We can’t wait to bring Web-scale IT to the causes and organizations our community is most passionate about.”
