Nutanix – Fun and Games with Cisco
Cisco® recently removed Nutanix from its Solution Partner Program (SPP). Cisco® Partner Certification is done through this program. The termination surprisingly followed the successful conclusion of working with very cooperative and enthusiastic Cisco® teams (Engineering, Product Management, Technical Marketing, Sales) to help ensure Nutanix was thoroughly tested on Cisco UCS® and performs to our customers’ requirements.
What does this mean for customers? Let’s break it down.
First, Nutanix delivers an enterprise cloud software application. Just as Microsoft, VMware, SAP and Oracle certify hardware, Nutanix has exhaustively tested and qualified Nutanix software on Cisco UCS®. Nutanix and Cisco® channel and SI partners have also successfully tested and validated our software on UCS® in both customer, and partner environments.
Second, support will be handled by Nutanix’s and Cisco®’s industry leading customer support teams. Nutanix touts an NPS score of 90/100. Cisco® has confirmed in its communication to its channel partners* (see email content from Cisco® below) that Cisco® will support its UCS customers irrespective of the software.
