Nutanix today announced the launch of a new solution, designed to bring the firm’s enterprise cloud platform to small and medium businesses (SMBs)
Nutanix Xpress offers a complete hyperconverged solution that natively integrates server, storage and virtualisation. The solution is plug-and-play and can power 5 to 500 virtual machines (VMs) using Nutanix’s pre-licensed AHV hypervisor and VM management tools.
“Xpress is the next step in the company’s long-term strategy to bring the benefits of hyperconvergence to businesses of all sizes,” said Raja Mukhopadhyay, VP of product management, Nutanix. “Xpress is a new Nutanix product line with a dedicated technology roadmap. In support of this new initiative, Nutanix is building new gotomarket strategies with its channel, developing additional training and augmenting its worldclass support organisation.”
Nutanix Xpress will be available via all worldwide Nutanix authorised resellers and distributors in July 2016. Xpressbased solutions will also be made available by Nutanix OEM partners. Final customer pricing is expected to be in the region of $25,000, depending on needs and will include access to Nutanix support.
Kevin Kaiser, senior category manager at CDW, said: “Small businesses face an IT quandary – they are burdened with sprawling infrastructure and diverse management solutions, but have very limited options for deploying nextgeneration solutions, such as hyperconverged products.”
“We see a significant opportunity to partner with Nutanix and bring the new Xpress solution to our customers to help them build scalable, optimised infrastructure,” he added.
