Nutanix joins Microsoft Azure to Provide Hybrid Cloud Solution

On Tuesday, Nutanix, an enterprise cloud computing firm, has announced a partnership with Microsoft to deliver a hybrid cloud solution. Their hybrid cloud solution will provide a seamless application and license mobility.

Under the agreement, as part of the collaboration, both companies will be focusing on extending the Nutanix Hybrid Cloud infrastructure.

Tarkan Maner, Chief Commercial Officer at Nutanix, said “We know customers are looking for solutions to truly and simply advance their cloud journey. This partnership helps us deliver a single software stack across public and private clouds, resulting in increased agility, streamlined operations, and significant cost savings.”

Both companies are aiming to offer their customers seamless support and sales experiences.

Customers of Microsoft Azure, as part of their Microsoft Azure Consumption Commitment (MACC), will be able to use their existing Azure credits to purchase Nutanix software.

And in-turn, customers of Nutanix will be able to port their term licenses to Nutanix Clusters on Azure. They will also be able to get an on-demand consumption of Nutanix software through the Azure Marketplace.

 

Scott Guthrie, Microsoft’s Executive Vice President of Cloud and AI, said “Many companies face complexities when managing hybrid cloud environments across private and public clouds. We are excited to collaborate with Nutanix to give customers flexibility and a seamless experience with hybrid Nutanix and Azure solutions.”
