At CIO 100 2017, Sunil Mahale, VP and MD of Nutanix, sheds light on the concept of hyperconvergence and how its introduction would simplify things for the enterprise. The main objective of introducing an entirely new idea of hyperconvergence was to simplify things that were thought to be complicated. Nutanix offered its hybrid solution to Wipro which benefitted them in many ways. Wipro, a company that firmly believes in crowd sourcing, has been doing quite a few outsourcing. It had both their employees and outsiders contributing to the company's business.
“We wanted an underlying infrastructure that was quick to assemble, easy to maintain and the flexibility to scale up with a high degree of availability. The second thing we wanted was a fixed cost per seat”, says Raja Ukil, senior VP and CIO of Wipro. “Therefore we started looking at something that was hyper converged and can be managed very easily.”

Nutanix partnered with Lenovo and has opened several wings with this partnership. At CIO100 2017, Vivek Sharma, MD, Lenovo, spoke about the future of software defined datacenter. Hyper convergence and software defined solutions have a huge impact on transforming datacenter.
“We have now successfully built our own private cloud. The best part is that now we can seamlessly move our workload from private to public cloud. Hyperconvergence is a turn towards the best way of infrastructure,” says Harnath Babu, CIO of KPMG and a customer of Lenovo.
