Gartner Positions Nutanix as Visionary in Inaugural Magic Quadrant for Integrated Systems

Nutanix, the leading provider of next-generation datacenter infrastructure solutions, today announced that Gartner, Inc. positioned the company furthest in the Visionary Quadrant for completeness of vision in the first-ever Magic Quadrant for Integrated Systems. Nutanix believes the placement is testament to the company’s commitment and success in bringing web-scale infrastructure solutions to mainstream enterprises and to the company’s extraordinary growth in the past two years.

According to Gartner, “Based on 2013 revenue rates, we estimate the overall market for integrated systems will exceed $6 billion in 2014, with annual growth of 50% over the prior year. The integrated system market is founded on innovation, and attracts numerous startups that see the potential to penetrate a data center market normally dominated by the established vendors,” wrote Gartner as part of the report. “The majority of integrated systems are the effective packaging of server, storage and networking components that are sold as separate products in their own right. But we are seeing the emergence of true "fabric-based computers" that merge the three elements more seamlessly.” 1

Nutanix was founded in 2009 to fulfill its vision of how enterprise datacenters will evolve in the cloud era. The company’s approach is based around fundamental technology shifts in enterprise mobility, consumer-grade design, big data analytics, and hybrid cloud architectures to deliver the benefits of web-scale technologies to the masses. Nutanix simplifies the design, management and growth of enterprise datacenters with a 100 percent software-defined Integrated System that optimizes nearly any virtual workload. Additionally, Nutanix Virtual Computing Platform is hypervisor agnostic, enabling enterprise IT managers to select the right virtualization technology for their environment, whether that is VMware vSphere™, Microsoft Hyper-V™, open source KVM or a combination.

“At Nutanix, we envision a decade for datacenters in which the computing platform will be completely virtual,” said Dheeraj Pandey, CEO of Nutanix. “A platform that encompasses the principles of fractional consumption economics, application-centric policies, user-centric design, flash memory, and hybrid cloud computing will be the torchbearer for enterprise IT this coming decade. We are pleased that Gartner has recognized us.”

Web-scale infrastructure is fundamentally a new approach to designing, deploying and managing datacenters that are radically simpler and more efficient than datacenters built using traditional IT products. Web-scale architectures and technologies were pioneered in large cloud and web companies – such as Google, Facebook, Microsoft and Amazon – and are now being adopted by mainstream enterprises.

To highlight the influence of web-scale technologies in enterprise datacenters, Nutanix is hosting Web-Scale Wednesday on June 25, 2014 from 9:00am PT – 12:00pm PT (with on-demand access throughout the week). This interactive and educational industry event brings together web-scale experts from virtualization, infrastructure, and cloud companies to discuss how recent developments are changing the course of enterprise IT. See the link in the resources section below for a complete agenda of Web-Scale Wednesday.

Digital transformation has increased the pace of business creating a productivity divide between the technology haves and have nots. Managing financial information on spreadsheets and piecing together insight from numerous disconnected systems is no longer an option. Rapid market changes and aggressive competition are motivating business leaders to reevaluate legacy technology investments in search of modern technologies to achieve greater agility, reduced costs and organizational efficiencies. ...
CI/CD is conceptually straightforward, yet often technically intricate to implement since it requires time and opportunities to develop intimate understanding on not only DevOps processes and operations, but likely product integrations with multiple platforms. This session intends to bridge the gap by offering an intense learning experience while witnessing the processes and operations to build from zero to a simple, yet functional CI/CD pipeline integrated with Jenkins, Github, Docker and Azure...
Fact: storage performance problems have only gotten more complicated, as applications not only have become largely virtualized, but also have moved to cloud-based infrastructures. Storage performance in virtualized environments isn’t just about IOPS anymore. Instead, you need to guarantee performance for individual VMs, helping applications maintain performance as the number of VMs continues to go up in real time. In his session at Cloud Expo, Dhiraj Sehgal, Product and Marketing at Tintri, sha...

Containers, microservices and DevOps are all the rage lately. You can read about how great they are and how they’ll change your life and the industry everywhere. So naturally when we started a new company and were deciding how to architect our app, we went with microservices, containers and DevOps. About now you’re expecting a story of how everything went so smoothly, we’re now pushing out code ten times a day, but the reality is quite different.
The hierarchical architecture that distributes "compute" within the network specially at the edge can enable new services by harnessing emerging technologies.

When building large, cloud-based applications that operate at a high scale, it’s important to maintain a high availability and resilience to failures. In order to do that, you must be tolerant of failures, even in light of failures in other areas of your application. “Fly two mistakes high” is an old adage in the radio control airplane hobby. It means, fly high enough so that if you make a mistake, you can continue flying with room to still make mistakes. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Lee A...
While some developers care passionately about how data centers and clouds are architected, for most, it is only the end result that matters. To the majority of companies, technology exists to solve a business problem, and only delivers value when it is solving that problem. 2017 brings the mainstream adoption of containers for production workloads. In his session at 21st Cloud Expo, Ben McCormack, VP of Operations at Evernote, discussed how data centers of the future will be managed, how the p...

Such cloud investments have delivered measurable benefits. But they’ve also resulted in some unintended side-effects: complexity and risk. ...
Machine learning provides predictive models which a business can apply in countless ways to better understand its customers and operations. Since machine learning was first developed with flat, tabular data in mind, it is still not widely understood: when does it make sense to use graph databases and machine learning in combination?
