Nutanix has been named as a Leader in Gartner, Inc.’s November 2021 Magic Quadrant for Hyperconverged Infrastructure (HCI) Software. This is the fifth year in a row that Nutanix has been named as a leader in this report.
Nutanix believes its continued recognition as a leader can be attributed to its expanded and enhanced HCI software capabilities and its customer support that has earned an average 90 Net Promoter Score (NPS) for the past seven years.
Rajiv Mirani, Chief Technology Officer at Nutanix said, “Nutanix is no stranger to driving innovation to ensure that our HCI solutions are meeting our customers where they are on their cloud journeys. Businesses are increasingly embracing hybrid multi-cloud strategies and we’ve seen customers rapidly adopt HCI solutions to simplify datacentre modernisation efforts while capitalising on the added automation, ease of use, agility and full software stack capabilities that HCI enables. We believe that our continued recognition in the Gartner Magic Quadrant for Hyperconverged Infrastructure Software demonstrates Nutanix’s commitment to providing expanded solution capabilities and support that results in the success of our customers.”
As organisations plan, businesses are continuing to adopt cloud operating models and modernise on-premises infrastructure. This enables organisations to respond in real-time to the IT landscape, with hybrid multi-cloud solutions offering the benefits of both public and private clouds. HCI solutions have emerged as an effective tool to deliver datacentre modernisation as well as cut down on the cost and complexity that accompany hybrid multi-cloud deployments.
According to Gartner, “HCI stacks can be turnkey hybrid clouds, providing infrastructure management and cloud services both on-premises and in hyperscale public clouds. They have effectively replaced build-it-yourself hybrid cloud technologies such as OpenStack.” Gartner also notes that, “the most advanced HCI stacks provide the full stack of software-defined infrastructure — compute, storage and networking. SDI is a key enabling technology for automation, hybrid clouds and edge infrastructure.”
Nutanix has recently added enhancements to its HCI software capabilities to break down silos in multi-cloud operations, including built-in enterprise-grade virtualisation, virtual networking, security, business continuity and disaster recovery.
