Nutanix Momentum Accelerates in EMEA With Expansion of Channel Program

Since Launching EMEA Operations in May 2012, More Than 20 Partners Have Signed to Help Enterprises Remove the Complexity of VDI and Private Cloud Deployments With the Nutanix Converged Infrastructure Platform

LONDON -- (Marketwire) -- 11/27/12 -- Nutanix (www.nutanix.com), the leader in converged infrastructure solutions for virtualised workloads, today announced the expansion of its channel partner network across EMEA. As part of its expansion strategy, Nutanix has announced new partner agreements with virtualisation, cloud and storage specialists, including Mason IT, Nugensis and Viadex in the UK. In the rest of the EMEA region, Nutanix has also signed Telindus-ISIT in The Netherlands, Layer8 in Sweden and TargoSoft in Germany, bringing the total number of partners to over 20.

Nutanix's innovative solution collapses the conventional two-tiered data centre design of storage and compute down to one single scalable appliance, delivering the world's first flash-accelerated datacentre, capable of hosting thousands of virtualised workloads without the need for a SAN.

Alan Campbell, Director, Nutanix EMEA, stated, "Since announcing our partnership with SDG as our pan-EMEA distributor, we have seen a surge of partners coming on board. Our partner program has a low-barrier to entry and we provide highly competitive margins, along with sales, technical and marketing support. While we are not looking for mass numbers, we are extremely pleased with the number of focused, specialist virtualisation and cloud partners joining our partner network."

"Nutanix is enabling organisations of any size to implement a highly virtualised and flexible environment by lowering the barriers to entry," said Roy Illsley Principal Analyst at Ovum. "With virtual workloads increasing year on year and the cost of a SAN impacting many organisations' budgets, Nutanix Cluster is a solution that is not limited by organisational size. Ovum considers it suitable for both SME and Enterprises alike and it is not surprised that channel partners are looking to sign with Nutanix."
