Nutanix is excited to announce that the leading Enterprise Cloud Software is now available on the most widely deployed Enterprise Server Platform.
HPE® ProLiant® servers are fully tested and certified by Nutanix to run Nutanix Enterprise Cloud software. HPE® customers are able to leverage Nutanix solutions to build an enterprise cloud delivering the simplicity and agility of public cloud services, with the control and security needed in private cloud environments. ProLiant® customers receive the same Nutanix compute, storage, virtualization and network functionality – plus the company’s intuitive, consumer-grade management that has made Nutanix the industry’s most popular hyperconverged solution.
Running Nutanix Enterprise Cloud Software on the HPE® ProLiant® Hardware enables customers to:
Build a full infrastructure stack with HPE® ProLiant® servers and Nutanix Enterprise Cloud software.
Eliminate expensive and complex SANs and simplify their datacenter using ProLiant® server storage resources.
Radically simplify infrastructure management with one-click software upgrades, infrastructure scaling and troubleshooting – freeing IT staff to focus on business applications rather than the infrastructure.
Start small and scale their infrastructure without limits by adding ProLiant® servers one at a time.
Cut the cost of virtualization with the Nutanix native AHV hypervisor and integrated virtualization management.
Easily add Nutanix Enterprise Cloud software to your ProLiant® server with no change to your architecture or operations.
Strong Customer and Partner Demand:
Nutanix’s support for HPE® ProLiant® is in response to strong demand from customers and channel partners. Authorized distributors and resellers for HPE® and Nutanix will integrate the HPE® hardware and Nutanix software either at their facilities or at the customer site. IT professionals get the same delightful experience as all the other Nutanix-supported hardware platforms.

How Support Works:
Nutanix will accept first call for support for any qualified HPE® ProLiant®systems deploying its Enterprise Cloud solution. This provides a simple, single point of contact for all support requests. Customers always have the option to call HPE® first for obvious hardware issues.
Upon initial triage, if it is determined the problem lies with the hardware, Nutanix Support will assist the customer to engage with HPE® through a warm handoff, providing all the necessary and relevant information. Nutanix can also engage directly with HPE® on the customer’s behalf via TSANet (TSANet.org) as an option.
If it is determined the problem lies with the software, Nutanix Support will drive the issue to resolution. In either case, Nutanix Support will close a case only when an acceptable resolution has been reached with the consent of the customer.
Beyond Hyperconverged Infrastructure to Enterprise Cloud:
Hyperconverged Infrastructure can bring radical simplicity to private clouds. However it takes much more to build an enterprise datacenter with the power of public cloud. Nutanix Enterprise Cloud Platform running on HPE® ProLiant® combines the agility and one-click simplicity of public cloud infrastructure with security, control, predictable economics and the performance you need from a private cloud.
