Fujitsu America, Inc. today announced the global availability of the multi-hypervisor platform Nutanix Enterprise Cloud on PRIMERGY. This Fujitsu appliance delivers confidence to customers that new digital applications can be delivered at speed and enable enterprise IT infrastructures to keep up with the pace of change.

Nutanix Enterprise Cloud on PRIMERGY combines the market-leading Nutanix HCI software with the proven performance, reliability and energy efficiency of Fujitsu PRIMERGY servers1. Following a successful pilot in the EMEIA (Europe, Middle East, India and Africa) region, Fujitsu has now confirmed plans for global rollout of the comprehensive hyper-converged enterprise cloud platform, which spans from private to hybrid cloud to the network edge, and scales from a single node, with no maximum.

Heather Engen, Head of Platform Products Group, Fujitsu America, Inc. says: “We’re excited to bring the Nutanix Enterprise Cloud on the PRIMERGY appliance to customers in North America. The all-in-one appliance delivers seamless orchestration of existing applications and resources from a single, high-performance enterprise cloud. Customers can order the appliance pre-configured and ready to run, enabling rapid and easy deployment.”

A flexible hyper-converged solution for all cloud services
The Nutanix Enterprise Cloud software on PRIMERGY appliance features compatibility with leading hyper-scale hybrid cloud services, plus support for industry-leading hypervisors – including VMware® ESXi and the free Nutanix AHV hypervisor. Outstanding versatility and scalability allow the Fujitsu appliance to be a cost-effective platform for a wide variety of needs – not only software-defined enterprise data centers and hyper-converged business applications, but also virtual desktop infrastructures, dedicated block storage and ROBO (Remote Office / Branch Office) scenarios.

Shipped ready-to-run, the solution is pre-configured to allow service levels to remain consistent, with integrated automatic load balancing and built-in resiliency. Fujitsu Infrastructure Manager (ISM) software provides converged infrastructure lifecycle management from a single console. Drawing on deep expertise in implementing and running integrated systems, Fujitsu is the single point of contact for hardware and software support at infrastructure level, with additional services available, including system optimization for customers’ individual landscapes, allowing customers to have a positive experience.

Chris Kaddaras, SVP of Americas and EMEA Sales at Nutanix says: “We’re thrilled to partner with Fujitsu to further extend the software choice for Fujitsu’s customers, many of whom are leaders in their respective industries and require the best in class hyperconverged and cloud software technologies. By combining hardware from Fujitsu, one of the largest server providers in the world, with Nutanix’s industry-leading software, joint Nutanix and Fujitsu customers can now create a successful and simple hybrid and multi-cloud environment. This additional option in the market gives customers across the world increased freedom of choice in their datacenter configuration and empowers them to build the ideal solution for their hybrid cloud needs.”
