    Last July Nutanix closed its fiscal year with about revenue of $1.58 billion, which represents a 13% increase in the global. A positive balance in which it has contributed a lot in the last quarter in which it registered a growth in turnover of 37%. The company, which celebrates “a decade of progress”as indicated in a meeting with the specialized press Jorge Vázquez, elected director of Spain and Portugal in March 2022, began its journey in September 2009, but it was in January 2012 when it launched its first product. During this period he found his niche by starting his foray into the world of hyperconvergence -with the famous elimination of silos in IT-, to take the next step and offer a platform that would allow companies to be able to manage the different clouds, whether public or private. All with the aim of “make the cloud invisible”. In other words, its evolution has gone from consolidating the data center (at the level of computing, storage and network), to consolidate the cloud in a hybrid multicloud environment. “We are the only hybrid multicloud platform that allows, in a simple way, to hybridize any application, data and operation”he pointed Alejandro Solanas, technical director of Nutanix Iberia.

    To achieve this, it has based -and supports- its business by optimizing its architecture through agreements with partners. With HPE, Lenovo, or Dell for on-premises solutions; with AWS and Azure in the cloud; or with OVH and Cyxtera for the MSP and Telcos section. However, as Solanas recognized, for the company the strategic partnership alliances and will continually close. In fact, Red Hat, Palo Alto Networks, Citrix or Google should be added to the list of partners, with which they maintain, for the time being, an agreement at the desktop level. But in their prospecting there are also robotization firms and those related to the field of the Internet of things.

    Local business growth

    Nutanix ended its fiscal year with 22,600 customers worldwide, with 620 new ones added in the final stretch. Of these figures, 1,841 are large accounts. Regarding the local market, the firm has experienced a 9% growth in the number of clients in Spain and approximately 50% of the IBEX companies They trust their technology. Among these references, Jorge Vázquez mentioned projects such as the Social Security Information Technology Management, the Andalusian Health Service, Sescam, Cepruval, the Catholic University of Murcia (UCAM) and the Public University of Navarra (UPNA); MRV, Holcim or the financial entity Crèdit Andorrà.

    To account for these initiatives, the company held in Madrid the Cloud Daya technology summit that brought together 130 people.

    56 people make up the subsidiary’s workforce, which implies an increase of 109% in the number of employees. In addition, the multinational has decided to locate the European Center of Excellence in Barcelona from where it will provide service to the entire continent.

    Private cloud domain

    Regarding cloud market trends in Spain, from Nutanix they recognize that the supply chain problemwhich affected the delivery of hardware for many projects, has been an inhibitor of digital transformation.

    Likewise, the Public Administration has experienced a lag in digitization compared to private enterprise, partly caused by the late arrival of resources. However, despite this delay, the public sector will have to manage huge amounts of resources.

    To all this is added a cultural theme: we are not very innovative and we are reluctant to change. Therefore, the public cloud is staying for the development of cloud-native solutions (what’s new), for disaster recovery and to start projects when hardware doesn’t arrive on time, for instance. The trend is towards the public cloud and an orientation towards services, but today these are concrete cases. Regulatory compliance and the business structure of trying first at home and then in the cloud are some of the reluctance that are holding back the rise of this public model.

    The formula for this to stand out is for companies to gain confidence that they are not going to lose control of their assets by taking them to the cloud.
