Nutanix: Fastest Growing Enterprise Infrastructure Company
The modular building-block design allows you to start small and grow into large
Nutanix, the leading provider of hyper-efficient, massively scalable and elegantly simple datacenter infrastructure solutions, released information regarding the company's performance since shipping its first Virtual Computing Platform in late 2011. In just six quarters, Nutanix has grown at 80% quarter-over-quarter and achieved an annualized run rate of over $80 million, eclipsing the market adoption velocity of all storage, networking and infrastructure startups since the early 2000s.
According to Gartner, Nutanix was recognized by the analyst firm for its clustered, appliance-based approach to compute, network and storage, which effectively eliminates the need for a storage area network (SAN).
To keep up with the company's growth and customer demand for Nutanix's breakthrough approach to datacenter architectures, Nutanix has added more than 100 employees in the past 12 months and has opened new offices in Belgium, Hong Kong, Japan, the Netherlands, Singapore, South Korea and the United Kingdom during the same time period, including parts depots across the world.
According Nutanix they uses the same design principles and technologies that power IT innovators such as Google, Facebook, and Amazon. They claim their solution is radically simple compared to traditional datacenter infrastructures.
What's cool, is the modular building block design (Scale-out) allows organizations to start with small deployments and grow into very large cluster.
