Today, our Nutanix Elevate partner Rubrik issued a press release announcing Nutanix Ready validation for its r300 Series, and declaring formal membership as a Nutanix alliance partner. What’s our mission with Rubrik? To elevate IT by making backup and data protection a seamless, holistic extension of Nutanix’s enterprise cloud platform and user experience.

One of the things that makes this alliance partnership so unique and exciting is how much both of our companies share in common: disruptive technologies, bold culture, and similar “DNA,” with several board members, investors, and advisors in common. What’s also exciting is the number of customers worldwide that are already deploying the solution, like Langs’ Building Supply, Protected Trust, and more.

We’re hearing from customers like Matt Day at Langs Building Supplies that together, Nutanix and Rubrik are making it dramatically easier to manage and scale their infrastructure, so they can focus their attention on delivering applications and thus adding more value to customers. According to Day, Nutanix and Rubrik “destroy the complexity barrier, allowing us to focus on what we really care about – our customers.”

One of the things we’re also excited about is that both Nutanix and Rubrik have very strong channel programs for VARs and resellers, enabling us to work with our shared partners to deliver joint solutions to customers with added ease and agility. We look forward to educating our partners on why the combination of these two technologies is so valuable to customers, including how the integration works, what the specific benefits entail, and how to succinctly deliver the joint message of turnkey, software-defined, scale-out infrastructure and data protection that we find so compelling.

Though we’ve only just begun, the traction we’ve seen thus far working with Rubrik is highly promising, and parallels the fast growth of Rubrik and Nutanix as individual companies. We are just making a splash with today’s announcement, but the tsunami is building. We’re disrupting the status quo together, and helping our customers swim nimbly past their opponents in a game that’s becoming increasingly competitive on a global scale.

What’s next? Stay tuned for more joint content, more examples of customer success, and make sure to see Rubrik at Nutanix’s .NEXT Conference 2016 in June. Also, check out the few items we’ve linked below for you:
