"Older IT technology is unable to bring a cloud-like experience that IT has come to expect. With the rock-solid foundation of Cisco UCS® servers combined with the pay-as-you-grow, scale-out simplicity enabled by the Nutanix software, IT can now bring the ease of public cloud to their own on-premises private cloud."
