Nutanix makes infrastructure invisible, elevating IT to focus on the applications and services that power their business. The Nutanix enterprise cloud platform leverages web-scale engineering and consumer-grade design to natively converge compute, virtualization and storage into a resilient, software-defined solution with rich machine intelligence. The result is predictable performance, cloud-like infrastructure consumption, robust security, and seamless application mobility for a broad range of enterprise applications.
Nutanix was founded in 2009 by a team that built scalable systems like the Google File System and other enterprise-class systems, like Oracle Database/Exadata. Nutanix uses Google-like storage architecture to allow businesses to achieve levels of performance and affordability never before possible in datacenters.
Since emerging from stealth mode in April 2011, Nutanix has raised $312 million in five funding rounds from top tier VCs that include Khosla Ventures, Lightspeed Venture Partners, Blumberg Capital, Battery Ventures, SAP Ventures, Greenspring, Riverwood Capital, and Morgan Stanley. Nutanix has been named to Gigaom’s Top 50 Cloud Innovators list and won three consecutive Best of VMworld awards (2011-2013)
