Nutanix announced its collaboration with Microsoft to supply a Hybrid Cloud solution with a smooth application, data and license mobility.
The partnership shows that Nutanix and Microsoft will be focusing on expanding the Nutanix Hybrid Cloud infrastructure to Azure.
Nutanix Chief Commercial Officer, Tarkan Maner said, “We know customers are looking for solutions to truly and simply advance their cloud journey. Their partnership helps us deliver a single software stack across public and private clouds, resulting in increased agility, streamlined operations, and significant cost savings.”
Seamless sales and support experiences will be provided to customers by both companies.
To be able to buy Nutanix software as a part of Microsoft Azure Consumption Commitment (MACC), customers of Microsoft Azure will be able to use their already existing Azure credits.
Because of this, customers of Nutanix can port their current term licences to Nutanix Clusters on Azure or acquire on-demand consumption of Nutanix software through the Azure Marketplace.
Microsoft’s Executive Vice President, Cloud and AI, Scott Guthrie said, “Many companies face complexities when managing hybrid cloud environments across private and public clouds. We are excited to collaborate with Nutanix to give customers flexibility and a seamless experience with hybrid Nutanix and Azure solutions.”
