Bro­cade and Nu­tanix An­nounced an Al­liance to Help En­ter­prises Seam­lessly De­ploy Hy­per­con­verged In­fra­struc­tures

HWM (Malaysia) - - SMB -

Nu­tanix re­cently awarded Bro­cade VDX switches with Nu­tanix Ready val­i­da­tion for so­lu­tion com­pat­i­bil­ity and in­ter­op­er­abil­ity with Nu­tanix sys­tems. To­gether, Nu­tanix’s Xtreme Com­put­ing Plat­form (XCP) and Bro­cade’s VDX switches and VCS Fab­ric tech­nol­ogy ad­dress cus­tomer re­quire­ments for vir­tu­al­iza­tion and spe­cific work­loads, such as vir­tual desk­top in­fra­struc­ture (VDI) and big data an­a­lyt­ics.

“We’re ex­cited to part­ner with Nu­tanix to help the en­ter­prise and mid-mar­ket de­ploy hy­per­con­verged in­fra­struc­ture that de­liv­ers sim­plic­ity and agility. The Nu­tanix Ready val­i­da­tion will pro­vide our joint cus­tomers with con­fi­dence as they de­ploy our com­bined tech­nolo­gies,” said Sean Ong, Coun­try Man­ager, Bro­cade Malaysia.

Hyper­con­ver­gence tightly in­te­grates com­pute, stor­age, and vir­tu­al­iza­tion us­ing com­mod­ity hard­ware to bring sim­pli­fied op­er­a­tion, high avail­abil­ity, and scal­a­bil­ity to the data cen­ter. Ac­cord­ing to Gart­ner, “By 2018, con­verged in­fra­struc­ture sys­tems cat­e­go­rized as ‘hy­per­con­verged in­fra­struc­ture’ will rep­re­sent 35 per­cent of to­tal con­verged in­fra­struc­ture ship­ments.”

As per­for­mance and stor­age de­mands in­crease, data cen­ter lead­ers are look­ing to hy­per­con­verged sys­tems to min­i­mize com­plex­ity and en­able agility for their mis­sion-crit­i­cal work­loads. The foun­da­tion for this new in­fra­struc­ture needs to cost-ef­fec­tively match the per­for­mance ben­e­fits that Nu­tanix brings. Bro­cade’s VCS Fab­ric tech­nol­ogy bal­ances th­ese ben­e­fits with re­siliency and ef­fi­ciency through au­to­ma­tion.

Venu­gopal Pai, Vice Pres­i­dent of Busi­ness De­vel­op­ment and Al­liances at Nu­tanix, added that Bro­cade fab­rics de­ploy and scale out with ease com­ple­ment­ing Nu­tanix so­lu­tions that make dat­a­cen­ter in­fra­struc­tures in­vis­i­ble.

This part­ner­ship bol­sters the fact that Bro­cade and Nu­tanix are also closely aligned on chan­nel strat­egy, and have com­mon dis­tri­bu­tion part­ners, in­clud­ing Avnet and Ar­row. Both com­pa­nies are com­mit­ted to de­liv­er­ing on­go­ing en­able­ment tools and pro­grams to en­sure con­tin­ued cus­tomer and chan­nel suc­cess.
