Hybrid multicloud computing company, Nutanix has announced that it has been named a Leader in the Forrester Wave: Hyperconverged Infrastructure, Q3 2023, published by Forrester Research, Inc.
The report evaluated 11 HCI vendors on Current Offering, Market Presence, and Strategy, and Nutanix was positioned as a leader with the highest possible scores in the vision and innovation criteria. Nutanix also received the highest scores in the storage and data, and support and experience criteria. Nutanix believes these results show the company’s strength in helping organisations build a hybrid multicloud platform to run all apps and data anywhere – whether in the datacentre, in public cloud or at the edge.
“Most organisations are grappling with the messy, accidental multicloud reality of managing applications and data across multiple clouds and on-premises, resulting in operational complexity, increased costs and security risks,” said Thomas Cornely, SVP, Product Management at Nutanix.
“Nutanix addresses these challenges with one platform to run applications and data anywhere. To us, this report underscores our leadership in this market and recognises our strong offering and vision to help customers simplify their hybrid multicloud environments,” he added.
The Forrester Wave™ report ranked Nutanix as a leader and stating that “Nutanix is known for simplifying infrastructure complexity and is applying that philosophy to hybrid cloud infrastructure as well.”
“The Nutanix vision focuses on building a hybrid and multicloud platform for business applications, easing adoption of cloud-native architecture.” Additionally, the report notes, “Nutanix puts customers at the heart of its innovation strategy, using its strong community ties to source new features for its roadmap,” the report further states.
This news comes on the heels of continued strong innovation and momentum from Nutanix, including the launch of Nutanix GPT-in-a-Box to simplify adoption of generative AI among enterprises. This full-stack software-defined AI-ready platform allows customers to easily procure AI-ready infrastructure to fine-tune and run generative pre-trained transformers (GPT), including LLMs at the edge or in their datacentre, while maintaining control of the data.
