On November 22, 2023, Broadcom closed its acquisition of VMware (now also called VMware by Broadcom ). For existing VMware customers, the acquisition presents risk that may be managed by assessing alternative vendors, with a view to either migrating to alternative offerings or introducing a dual-vendor strategy.
Nutanix is excited to launch a special VMware to Nutanix Migration Promotion (“Promotion”) to help new customers migrate to our proven virtualization and cloud platform. This limited time offer will help organizations minimize migration and dual operational costs during the transition. (Ultimate savings are determined by your Nutanix channel partners.)
Customers can leverage this Promotion whether they are planning to continue using VMware vSphere as part of their Nutanix deployment or replacing VMware entirely. The Promotion also provides a way to accelerate VMware replacement by reducing the need to wait for VMware assets to depreciate.
