Super Micro Computer, Inc. (SMCI) , a global leader in enterprise computing, storage, networking solutions and green computing technology, joins the Nutanix Elevate partner program . This expanded collaboration will further help customers deploy, manage and scale their infrastructure by delivering optimized applications and hardware solutions to address the growing market demand for hybrid multi-cloud solutions.
“With 28 years of design, manufacturing and service experience, Supermicro has worked closely with Nutanix for over a decade, and together we have delivered many industry firsts,” said Charles Liang , President and CEO of Supermicro. “Our BigTwin systems have become the de facto platform for hyperconverged infrastructure (HCI), and the vast majority of Nutanix customers today run on Supermicro server hardware. To bring even more value to the market, Supermicro is is now joining the Nutanix Elevate Partner Program to offer hybrid multi-cloud solutions based on our new X12 generation Ultra and BigTwin platforms to deliver higher performance at scale with shorter lead times. ”
The Nutanix Elevate Reseller Program differs from traditional partner programs. It has a unique emphasis on partner capabilities and competencies to sell and support the Nutanix portfolio. As a registered participant, Supermicro gets standardized pricing and sales commitment support through Nutanix’s existing network of distribution partners to enable Supermicro to sell Nutanix solutions to customers.
“The market recognizes Nutanix as the industry leader in providing unparalleled freedom of choice,” said Tarkan Maner , Nutanix Chief Commercial Officer. “With the addition of Supermicro as a Nutanix Elevate partner, we are able to provide even more flexibility and expertise to customers through the Supermicro marketing organization.”
The collaboration now expands beyond the integrated product portfolio. For example, Supermicro is now authorized to resell the Nutanix NX line of devices. These systems are based on the Supermicro X12 Ultra and BigTwin ® platforms powered by 3rd generation Intel Xeon Scalable processors with built-in AI accelerators and optional all-flash NVMe storage, allowing customers to select the right systems needed for performance and the capabilities required for your workloads.
With this new agreement, Supermicro is able to offer additional Nutanix technologies to its global customer base, enabling the adoption of hybrid multi-cloud environments. Customers will receive support directly from the Nutanix customer service organization. Additionally, this extension of the partnership will allow the two companies to accelerate the acquisition and deployment of the long-proven Supermicro and Nutanix solutions in the market. Many workloads in various industries will benefit from this partnership and the Nutanix solution, including analytics, VDI, remote / branch office, databases, and mission-critical applications.
