Veeam and Nutanix expand partnership
Companies team to chase the $7.5 billion hyper-converged infrastructure market
Veeam is now the Premier Availability solution provider for Nutanix virtualised environments.
This is the result of an expanded partnership between Veeam Software and hyper converged infrastructure solutions provider Nutanix.
In addition, Veeam adds support of Nutanix AHV in its flagship Veeam Availability Suite, allowing joint Nutanix and Veeam customers to benefit from its Availability solution.
“This partnership brings together the leader in Enterprise Cloud Computing, Nutanix, with the leader in Availability solutions – both focused on delivering multi-cloud solutions to the enterprise,” said Peter McKay, Co-CEO and President at Veeam. “As we continue to make greater inroads in the hybrid-cloud segment, we understand that our customers now require solutions that span both their on-premises and cloud IT environments. We are excited to be the premier Availability solution for supported Nutanix virtualised environments.”
As a software-defined enterprise cloud platform, Nutanix enhances performance and simplifies the management of application workloads across physical and virtual environments. IDC suggests the market for hyper-converged infrastructure (HCI) will be worth $7.5 billion by 2021, as a result of the technology gaining traction in enterprises as more businesses investigate its potential benefits.
"HCI has become one of the fastest growing segments of the enterprise infrastructure market by enabling new levels of agility and operational efficiencies within key parts of the data centre infrastructure market," said Eric Sheppard, research director, IDC. "Veeam's support for Nutanix AHV brings a proven availability platform to this growing market at a time when hyperconverged solutions are increasingly deployed to support mission critical business applications, and thus in need of just such a platform."
Veeam provides an agentless solution for ensuring the high levels of availability and data protection for applications and data.
“Nutanix continues to invest in strategic relationships to strengthen our partner ecosystem,” said Sudheesh Nair, president at Nutanix. “We are delighted to recognise Veeam as the premier Availability solution provider for supported Nutanix virtualised environments, in helping our joint customers gain peace of mind as they advance their digital transformation strategies.”
Both Veeam and Nutanix partners will benefit from a combined solution that will increase partner sales opportunities. Veeam will become a Strategic Technology Partner within the Nutanix Elevate Alliance Partner Program, as well as be a featured app in the new Nutanix Marketplace.
