Nutanix, the leading provider of next-generation datacenter
infrastructure solutions, today announced that its federal government
business has expanded by 569 percent from 2012 to 2013. In just two
years, the company's innovative web-scale infrastructure approach to
transforming how datacenters are designed and managed has been
implemented by 57 agencies - including the Departments of Agriculture,
Energy, Health and Human Services and Justice, as well as three
Department of Defense service branches and several intelligence agencies.
As a company, Nutanix has exceeded $100 million in sales in only two
years, driven in part by the significant growth within the government.
Agencies rely on the company's unique technology to address the
challenges associated with traditional large-scale datacenter
architectures such as poor scalability, lack of agility, network
bottlenecks and unsustainable capital and operational costs. "It is no
secret that agencies are looking to consolidate and virtualize their IT
environments," said Gary A. Barlet, Chief Information Officer, Office of
Inspector General for the United States Postal Service. "Whether it's
transitioning to the cloud, eliminating datacenters, enabling continuity
of operations or pursuing virtual desktops and bring your own device
initiatives, any program must first take a look at the infrastructure
required - that's where it gets complicated and expensive. A major
change to the traditional datacenter approach is in the air with the
move towards web-scale IT."
"In this ime of budget cuts, government needs to be more efficient,"
said Anja Manuel, a Partner at the firm RiceHadleyGates LLC, which is a
strategic advisor to Nutanix. "Government offices that must reduce
spending will need technology that simplifies and converges the various
IT operations. Nutanix is one of the most innovative companies that can
help them get there."
The Nutanix web-scale infrastructure solution eliminates the need for
costly and complex storage area networks by integrating high-performance
storage and compute into one unified appliance. The company's
groundbreaking approach to datacenter convergence provides modular,
"building block" scaling that enables agencies to start small and grow
incrementally, resulting in unprecedented cost savings and efficiency
and near immediate return on investment. The platform is simple and fast
to install (deploys in about 45 minutes), requires little to no
operation or management intervention and its performance is dramatically
faster compared to legacy infrastructures.
"Our modularly-scalable Virtual Computing Platform is fundamentally
changing the way government agencies are going about simplifying their
datacenter operations," said Dave Gwyn, Vice President, Federal and FSI
Sales, Nutanix. "It's a modern approach that has been widely accepted by
agencies looking for new ways to accomplish datacenter consolidation,
increase mobility and security and cut costs. Today's government
environment requires new thinking; agencies can no longer continue to
speculate on dated, three-tier architectures that take months or years
to provide ROI."
Nutanix is recognized as the fastest growing enterprise technology
company of the past decade, and most recently earned IDG's prestigious
InfoWorld 2014 Technology of the Year award. Nutanix has an approximate
$1 billion valuation driven by this unprecedented customer traction.
Nutanix delivers web-scale IT infrastructure to medium and large
enterprises with its software-driven Virtual Computing Platform,
natively converging compute and storage into a single solution to drive
unprecedented simplicity in the datacenter. Customers can start with a
few servers and scale to thousands, with predictable performance and
economics. With a patented elastic data fabric and consumer-grade
management, Nutanix is the blueprint for application-optimized and
