Nutanix, a provider of hyper-converged data centre infrastructure has entered into a distribution agreement with Evanssion FZCO for the Middle East region.

In terms of the accord, Evanssion will offer Nutanix's full portfolio of virtual computing platform products to VARs and systems integration partners across the region.

The Nutanix Virtual Computing Platform is a converged data centre solution that consolidates the compute and storage tiers into a single, integrated scale-out appliance eliminating the need for SAN or NAS solutions.

"Nutanix has been introduced into the Middle East by Evanssion, a company that understands how our converged compute and storage platform uniquely address the needs of their channels customers," said Dirk Marichal, vice president EMEA, Nutanix. "Our converged solution supports deployments of any virtual workload including server virtualisation, large-scale virtual desktop initiatives (VDI), development/test applications, private clouds, big data projects, disaster recovery (DR) and more. We are happy to partner with Evanssion to bring the Nutanix technology to the region. Evanssion is fully equipped to support our reseller partners with sales, pre-sales, POC and implementation support and they shall work together with the local Nutanix team being deployed throughout the region."

Ashok Chakravarthi Arulmozhi, director at Evanssion, said they have been looking at cloud computing technologies and was excited to zero in on Nutanix. "With Nutanix, we are able to offer Google like infrastructure to the enterprise segment. We have presented the technology to leading enterprises in the region and the response from them has been very encouraging."

"Nutanix changes the dynamics of data centres by converging the compute and storage tiers into one scale-out appliance. Customers can deploy a very high performance virtualised data centre in matter of minutes with Nutanix, in a more simple and affordable scale-out way than the traditional approach with separate servers and centralised storage arrays. In addition, Nutanix eliminates the storage network thereby bringing in very high efficiencies in performance and management," said Dilip Kalliyat, director at Evanssion. "After researching and considering a number of companies in the cloud infrastructure space, we truly believe that none of them match the simplicity, scale-out capability and completeness of the Nutanix Virtual Computing Platform,"Kalliyat said.

"Currently we are actively recruiting partners into the Nutanix Partner Network from our extensive network of resellers, integrators and datacentre providers. We are confident that the elegance, simplicity and efficiency of the Nutanix Virtual Computing Platform will be very well received by our channel partners and their customers," added Ashok.

"The launch is a perfect timing, as we invest heavily in expanding our operations across the EMEA region. We look forward to working with Evanssion to accelerate mutual growth by the rapid adoption of the Nutanix Virtual Computing Platform," said Jan Ursi, director EMEA, Nutanix Channel Sales and Marketing.
