Why Companies are Migrating to Nutanix

Nutanix delivers a hybrid and multicloud platform, Nutanix Clusters, which offers seamless private and public cloud operations. This platform accelerates businesses’ cloud journey by integrating their existing on-premises datacenters with multiple public clouds.

  • Simplicity and Performance: Nutanix offers a single platform to run all your apps and data across multiple clouds while simplifying operations and reducing complexity. It delivers SAN-like performance that won’t degrade over time.

Some concerns for VMware users?

Following Broadcoms acquisition of VMware in November 2023, it has led to a lot so concern amongst VMware users for several reasons:

  • Price Hikes: Every person surveyed in a recent study expected VMware prices to rise under Broadcom. Some even anticipated price hikes of over 200%.
  • Disruption to IT Strategy: 95% of survey respondents viewed Broadcom buying VMware as disruptive to their IT strategy.
  • Changes to Licensing Models and Support: Concerns have bubbled up around possible price hikes, shifts in licensing models, and the future pace of innovation and support.
