Nutanix Certifies on Cloudera Enterprise, Joining Forces To Create Simplified Big Data Enterprise Clouds

Industry’s First Jointly Validated Solution Allows Enterprises to Deploy Big Data Solutions in Hyperconverged Environments

SAN JOSE, Calif. – October 10, 2017  Nutanix (NASDAQ: NTNX), a leader in enterprise cloud computing, today announced that its Enterprise Cloud Platform software has been certified to run Cloudera Enterprise workloads through the Cloudera Certified Technology Program. Through this certification, joint customers can reduce management complexity and derive more value by deploying and managing their Cloudera analytics workloads on the market’s leading hyperconverged software platform. IT leaders can now run intensive big data jobs in their own private cloud datacenter, adding a new level of flexibility to their IT infrastructure without sacrificing the simplicity and scalability typically associated with public cloud services.

For big data deployments, choosing the right hardware and software is critical to success but often challenging for IT teams balancing ambitious corporate goals with smaller budgets and fewer resources. Joint customers can now run Cloudera workloads on an on-premises, elastic, software-driven infrastructure that can scale on-demand, one node at a time. And because Cloudera workloads can run on the same shared infrastructure as other workloads, IT teams can reduce costs and focus their attention on strategic projects, rather than managing multiple silos of underutilized infrastructure.

“Today’s IT teams have to ensure their private cloud infrastructure delivers the necessary scalability and performance to handle the newer generation of mode 2 applications,” said Philippe Marinier, vice president, Business Development at Cloudera. “By certifying the Nutanix Enterprise Cloud Platform, we’re empowering our customers to essentially make their infrastructure invisible, allowing them to focus on extracting value from their valuable business data using Cloudera Enterprise.”

“Enterprises are rejecting infrastructure options that do not provide cloud-like operating models, and that are incapable of supporting all workloads, including the most demanding big data services,” said Venugopal Pai, vice president of alliances and business development, Nutanix. “By bringing advanced cloud-like infrastructure to run Cloudera big data projects, joint Nutanix and Cloudera customers can transform from traditional analytics and infrastructure environments to a modernized big data application environment delivered on an enterprise cloud fabric – all via one seamless architecture.”


Cloudera Enterprise is now certified to run on select Nutanix platforms.
