Nutanix announced at its .NEXT on Tour conference in Singapore as customers leave their legacy IT woes behind to sign on with the Nutanix software-driven enterprise cloud solution.

Described by Goldman Sachs as a once-in-a-decade infrastructure story, Nutanix is bucking the trend of forecasted lackluster IT spend in 2017 and making strong inroads into multiple industries ranging from manufacturing and education to eCommerce in the Southeast Asia region.

Since its initial public offering in September 2016, Nutanix has grown with a 68% year over year growth in revenue and over 875 new end-customers in its recently concluded fourth quarter.

Similarly, Nutanix has doubled its number of customers in the ASEAN region in FY2017, recording significant growth in large enterprise customers with USD1 million contracts.

With over 7,000 global customers, Nutanix has a quarter of the Global 2000 as customers.

Nutanix software-defined approach with a unified OS supposedly operates seamlessly across multi-cloud deployments. This is an attractive proposition for companies in Southeast Asia looking to ease IT infrastructure complexity while maintaining security and efficiency in an increasingly disparate, data-driven environment.

Organizations grappling with multiple IT vendors for computing, storage, virtualization, and cloud are now choosing the Nutanix Enterprise Cloud Platform, which streamlines IT management while boosting productivity.

Ardimas Wurseto, Tokopedia infrastructure head says, “Nutanix has been an ideal partner as they have a solution that is perfect for a next-generation company such as ours.

“Their software-driven architecture and web-scale engineering make IT operations and management seamless and simple, thus allowing our teams to focus on boosting business performance rather than on troubleshooting problems caused by complex IT systems.

Nutanix makes infrastructure invisible, elevating IT to focus on the applications and services that power their business.

The Nutanix Enterprise Cloud Platform leverages web-scale engineering and consumer-grade design to natively converge compute, virtualization and storage into a resilient, software-defined solution with machine intelligence.

The expected result is predictable performance, cloud-like infrastructure consumption, robust security, and application mobility for a range of enterprise applications.

Matt Young, Nutanix SVP says, “We are delighted to see the multiple benefits that the Nutanix Enterprise Cloud Platform has brought to such a wide range of industries.

“With the impending release of Nutanix Calm, customers will also get the ability to manage and orchestrate applications across public, private and edge clouds through the unified enterprise cloud OS.

“We look forward to working with even more companies across the region to bring more simplicity and scalability to their IT infrastructures.
