HPE and Nutanix join forces to deliver hybrid cloud as a service

The solution combines HPE’s GreenLake and Nutanix’s Enterprise Cloud OS software

HPE and Nutanix have expanded their partnership with the launch of an integrated hybrid cloud-as-a-service platform, combining HPE's GreenLake and Nutanix's Enterprise Cloud OS software.

The companies said that offering their products together will serve up a hybrid infrastructure fully-managed by HPE, at a lower cost than on-premise solutions. It also offers more flexibility in both customer data centres or a co-location facility.

The offering has been designed for businesses wanting to scale-up their infrastructure to operate mission-critical workloads and big data applications. It supports SAP, Oracle, and Microsoft environments, plus virtualised big data applications, such as Splunk and Hadoop.

The announcement is in response to a problem of overcomplexity from legacy hardware, and concerns over vendor lock-in when attempting to move to a hybrid model, according to the companies.

"HPE created the modern on-premises, as a service consumption market with HPE GreenLake. Hundreds of global customers now leverage HPE GreenLake to get the benefits of a cloud experience combined with the security, governance, and application performance of an on-premises environment, while paying for the service based on actual consumption," said Antonio Neri, president and CEO, HPE.

"Today, HPE is expanding its leadership in this market by providing additional choice to customers seeking a hybrid cloud alternative that promises greater agility at lower costs."

As part of the agreement, Nutanix's channel partners will gain access to HPE's servers, giving them the opportunity to sell the hardware alongside Nutanix's software, offering customers a fully-integrated solution.

"Our customers tell us that it's their applications that matter most. Our partnership with HPE will provide Nutanix customers with another choice to make their infrastructure invisible so they can focus on business-critical apps, not the underlying technology," said Dheeraj Pandey, founder, CEO and chairman of Nutanix.

"We are delighted to partner with HPE for the benefit of enterprises looking for the right hybrid cloud solution for their business."
