Nutanix lines up partners to sell on Cisco UCS
#Nutanix, which has OEM deals with server vendors #Dell and #Lenovo, is now selling its software on #Cisco #UCS servers through channel partners. Nutanix today revealed it has independently validated Cisco UCS C-Series servers to run Nutanix hyper-converged software. Nutanix has forged a meet-in-the-channel agreement with Cisco resellers to sell Nutanix Prism and #Acropolis software on Cisco UCS C220 and C240 rack-mount servers.
Cisco has its own #HyperFlex hyper-converged system as well as partnerships with #VMware, #Simplivity and #StorMagic that allow their hyper-converged software to be sold with UCS servers.
“This is strictly a Nutanix initiative that will benefit Cisco UCS customers,” said Greg Smith, Nutnanix director of technical marketing. “The testing of our software was a Nutanix-driven initiative with support from several large Cisco partners who have deep expertise with UCS. We have worked with Cisco in the past and we currently work with them to make sure our joint deployments fully support Cisco networking.”
