Ask a Wikibon analyst: Can Nutanix challenge the virtualization leader?


A feisty Nutanix, Inc. came out swinging at its recent user conference, taking on virtualization kingpin VMware, Inc. and seemingly setting its sights on Amazon Web Services in its bid to make data center infrastructure invisible.

Nutanix, which is perhaps the hottest startup in the converged infrastructure market, introduced a hardware-agnostic implementation of the software powering its hugely-popular integrated appliances and said it’s considering selling its software on a subscription basis, a move that would position it directly against VMware. Nutanix has raised more than $300 million in funding and reportedly is on a $200 million sales run rate, but can it take on to infrastructure heavyweights with a combined $32 billion in annual revenue, not to mention the powerful Amazon?

That’s question we put to Wikibon Senior Analyst Stuart Miniman, who follows cloud and infrastructure. “Lots of people running with the Nutanix vs VMware ‘war,’” he told us, “but the reality is that Nutanix is leading a wave of disruption in storage that has all the big companies like EMC, Hewlett-Packard [Co.] and others are paying a lot of attention.”
