Red Hat, the world’s leading provider of enterprise open source solutions, and Nutanix, a leader in hybrid multi-cloud computing, announced a strategic partnership to enable a powerful solution for building, scaling, and managing cloud-native applications on-premises and in hybrid clouds. The collaboration brings together industry-leading technologies, enabling installation, interoperability, and management of Red Hat OpenShift and Red Hat Enterprise Linux with Nutanix cloud platform, including Nutanix AOS and AHV.
Because of its distributed architecture, Nutanix cloud platform delivers an IT environment that is highly scalable and resilient, and well-suited for enterprise deployments of Red Hat OpenShift at scale. The platform also includes fully integrated unified storage, addressing many tough challenges operators routinely face in configuring and managing storage for stateful containers.
Commenting on the partnership, Eric Sheppard, IDC research vice president said: “Organisations around the world are deploying an increasingly diverse mix of modern and cloud-native workloads. This Red Hat and Nutanix partnership, and in particular the collaborative support agreement between the two companies, helps to bring virtualised applications and Red Hat OpenShift-based containerised workloads running on Nutanix’s cloud platform together in a way that will benefit exactly these types of organisations and help to drive increased simplicity, agility and scalability within today's complex hybrid cloud world.”
