SINGAPORE--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Nutanix (NASDAQ: NTNX), a leader in enterprise cloud computing, today announced at its .NEXT on Tour conference in Singapore an increased growth in Southeast Asia 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 e-commerce in the Southeast Asia region.
Since its initial public offering in September 2016, Nutanix has grown from strength to strength with 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 more than a quarter of the Global 2000 as customers.
A disruptor in an industry that was dominated by traditional big players, the Nutanix software-defined approach with a unified OS 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.
This cuts across a wide range of industries:
- Indonesia’s largest and fastest growing e-commerce and online retail giant Tokopedia is powered by Nutanix;
- Reed Exhibitions, one of the world’s largest exhibition and conventions companies, was able to scale up its IT operations quickly and seamlessly to cope with its rapid business expansion while enjoying lower TCO and other benefits;
- Thailand’s Kasetsart University, Faculty of Engineering, is leveraging the Nutanix Enterprise Cloud Platform for its students;
- Chemical manufacturing giant Kaneka in Malaysia re-engineered its entire IT operations based on the Nutanix software-defined approach; and
- Leading hearing aids provider Sivantos is able to enhance their core business of helping customers hear, thanks to a more efficient IT infrastructure.
“Nutanix has been an ideal partner as they have a solution that is perfect for a next-generation company such as ours,” said Infrastructure Head of Tokopedia, Ardimas Wurseto. “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 was the least complicated, most scalable hyperconverged solution compared to the other vendors we were considering,” added John Moses, Senior Regional IT Infrastructure Manager, Reed Exhibitions.
“We are delighted to see the multiple benefits that the Nutanix Enterprise Cloud Platform has brought to such a wide range of industries,” said Matt Young, SVP and Head of Asia-Pacific and Japan, Nutanix. “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.”
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 rich machine intelligence. The result is predictable performance, cloud-like infrastructure consumption, robust security, and seamless application mobility for a broad range of enterprise applications.
