Nutanix has announced it has been named a Top Independent Software Vendor Partner in APAC and Japan as part of the Red Hat Asia Pacific Partner Awards 2022.

The awards recognise Red Hat’s commercial and public sector partners for their continued efforts to develop innovative solutions using Red Hat technologies to meet customer needs and improve business outcomes.

Winners are selected based on their commitment to innovation, dedication to driving change with open source, and demonstration of collaborative and transparent working ecosystems.

Nutanix received the award less than 18 months after it announced a strategic partnership with Red Hat, with the title recognising Nutanix’s continued efforts to develop innovative solutions using Red Hat technologies.

“Our partnership with Red Hat is a critical force multiplier for both our customers and partners across A/NZ. At a time when the need to modernise and digitise operations has never been greater, organisations on both sides of the ditch are struggling to find the right talent to meet their business ambitions,” says Matt Maw, Head of Channel, Nutanix ANZ.

“Together with Red Hat, Australian customers are accelerating their cloud-native transformations with a resilient and scalable data infrastructure that easily supports the demands of containerised applications. Critically, our partnership liberates IT teams from managing increasingly complex infrastructure requirements so they can focus on modernising existing workloads or supporting cloud-native applications, adding greater value to their businesses.”

Andrew Habgood, Vice President, Partner Ecosystem, Red Hat APAC, says that Nutanix has provided successful customer outcomes and helped significantly promote better hybrid cloud technology utilisation.

“Nutanix has not only acted as a catalyst for customer success, it has been an important multiplier of enterprise open source by adopting Red Hat solutions, from emerging technologies to hybrid cloud infrastructure,” he says.

“In today’s evolving marketplace, it is more important than ever to work openly and collaboratively to generate meaningful results for organisations throughout their cloud journey.”

Nutanix places a focus on simplifying cloud complexity with an open, software-defined hybrid multicloud platform. The approach involves powering mission-critical applications and services for the world’s most advanced organisations, and this enables them to put their workloads in the environments that make the most sense, whether private, public or hybrid clouds.

“We are honoured to receive the award for Red Hat Top Independent Software Vendor Partner in APAC and Japan this year,” says Aaron White, VP & GM - APJ Sales, Nutanix.

“Our collaboration has been successful because it brings together cloud-native solutions with the simplicity, flexibility and resilience of the Nutanix Cloud Platform. Together, we have been providing customers across the region and worldwide with a full stack platform. This enables them to more easily build, scale, and manage containerised and virtualised cloud-native applications in a hybrid multicloud environment.”
