IBM and Nutanix Team Up to Support Hypercoverged Workloads

IBM and Nutanix have formed a multi-year initiative to bring new workloads to hyperconverged deployments. The integrated offering aims to combine Nutanix’s Enterprise Cloud Platform software with IBM Power Systems, to deliver a turnkey hyperconverged solution targeting critical workloads in large enterprises. The partnership is aimed at delivering a full-stack combination with built-in AHV virtualization for a simple experience within the data center.

“Hyperconverged systems continue on a rapid growth trajectory. IT teams now recognize the need, and the undeniable benefits, of embracing the next generation of datacenter infrastructure technology,” said Stefanie Chiras, VP of Power Systems at IBM. “Our partnership with Nutanix will be designed to give our joint enterprise customers a scalable, resilient, high-performance hyperconverged infrastructure solution, benefiting from the data and compute capabilities of the POWER architecture and the one-click simplicity of the Nutanix Enterprise Cloud Platform.”

This joint initiative intends to bring new workloads to hyperconverged deployments by delivering a simple-to-deploy, web-scale architecture supporting POWER based scale-out computing for a continuum of enterprise workloads and middleware.

The program’s leaders state they will soon be launching a simplified private enterprise cloud that delivers POWER architecture to the data center.
