Nutanix has signed an original equipment manufacturing (OEM) agreement with Dell to offer a new family of converged infrastructure appliances based on Nutanix web-scale technology.

According to terms of the deal, the collaboration is designed from the ground up to deliver "innovative web-scale technology to enterprises of any size."

The agreement also includes joint sales, marketing, support and service investments, as well as alignment of product roadmaps.

“Nutanix is a recognised leader in the converged infrastructure market with a software-driven offering that fits with Dell’s efforts to redefine datacentre economics and simplify IT for our customers,” says Alan Atkinson, vice president and general manager, Dell Storage.

“By combining market-leading infrastructure and software technologies from both companies with Dell’s world-class go-to-market capabilities, we believe our new solutions will be positioned to be a significant player in the growing, multi-billion dollar converged infrastructure market.”

The new Dell XC Series of Web-scale Converged Appliances will be built with Nutanix software running on Dell PowerEdge servers, and will be available in multiple variants to meet a wide range of price and performance options.

“Dell is a world-class leader in servers, storage and networking, and has established itself as a valuable IT partner for many of the world’s largest organisations,” adds Dheeraj Pandey, co-founder and CEO, Nutanix.

“Nutanix is teaming with Dell to accelerate our global sales growth through Dell’s vast direct and channel sales networks.

"In Dell, we chose a company that shares our vision of disrupting traditional datacentre infrastructures with intelligent software running on x86 hardware to power all datacentre services.”
