Nutanix Enables TBConsulting to Rapidly and Efficiently Scale Managed Desktop Environment

Enterprise Cloud Platform Reduces Effort to Maintain Environment by 5x, Shrinks Datacenter Footprint by 4x

SAN JOSE, Calif. – May 23, 2017 – Nutanix (NASDAQ: NTNX), a leader in enterprise cloud computing, today announced that TBConsulting, a leading provider of managed IT services, has deployed the Nutanix Enterprise Cloud Platform to power and scale its virtual desktop environment from 600 to over 4,000 virtual desktops.

In order to meet increasing demand from its healthcare clients, TBConsulting needed a higher-performing platform that would provide the ability to scale quickly and improve the speed of application deployment. Previously, the company used a complex infrastructure platform with a homegrown solution comprised of Cisco components, VMware vSphere and VMware Horizon View for its VDI environment consisting of 600 virtual desktops. After vetting several best-in-class vendors, TBConsulting determined Nutanix was the optimal solution for its fast-growth VDI offering based on VMware Horizon View.

After purchasing 24 NX-3000 systems, TBConsulting was able to deploy over 4,000 virtual desktops for its healthcare customers in a few weeks, compared to the months it would have taken with its previous infrastructure, based on past experience. While delivering thousands of new desktops, TBConsulting has reduced its effort to maintain its VDI environment by 5x and obtained a 4x reduction in footprint compared to its traditional infrastructure solution, directly translating to far lower operating costs. The Nutanix solution has helped TBConsulting create a differentiated X-Powered service offering with clear value for its end-users, including excellent user experience and superior scalability and agility.

Services built on X-Powered platforms carry the reliability, availability and performance of the Nutanix Enterprise Cloud Platform.

“Hyperconvergence and Enterprise Cloud are the future of IT, and Nutanix is leading the way,” said Dieter Gable, TBConsulting CEO. “Nutanix enables us to rapidly roll out new projects, streamline our management process and drive down costs, positioning us to meet our customers’ needs and remain competitive in the managed services market. After making this transition, we now have industry-leading web-scale infrastructure powering our best-in-class Nutanix X-Powered service.”

To handle regulatory, compliance and disaster recovery requirements, TBConsulting is also adding a 32-node cluster to its current deployment and will be replicating from Phoenix to San Diego, using Nutanix replication. TBConsulting’s total Nutanix footprint has now grown to well over 100 nodes. The managed services provider uses the Nutanix Enterprise Cloud Platform to deliver desktops as a service (DaaS), DR as a service (DRaaS) and infrastructure as a service (IaaS), leveraging multiple enterprise-grade tools. TBConsulting also has established a datacenter in Las Vegas and several other locations throughout the U.S. using the Nutanix Enterprise Cloud Platform.

“Managed IT services is a highly competitive market where companies must differentiate themselves through the high-quality services and experiences they provide to customers,” said Keith Moran, vice president, central US and SLED, Nutanix. “By selecting the Nutanix Enterprise Cloud Platform to deliver Nutanix X-Powered services, TBConsulting has positioned itself for long-term success by investing in an infrastructure solution that reduces costs and complexity and delivers the high performance needed to meet its end-customer expectations.”
