Clouds Converge With Nutanix, Google Partnership

Following chatter of an Alphabet Inc (NASDAQ: GOOG) (NASDAQ: GOOGL) partnership, Nutanix Inc (NASDAQ: NTNX) confirmed a strategic alliance with Google Cloud to collaborate on an expanding Internet of Things (IoT) and to merge the companies’ cloud environments for enterprise applications.

The cloud integration will be available in the first quarter of 2018, and Nutanix will unveil its edge-processing IoT platform, TensorFlow, for Google-based applications at Wednesday’s Nutanix .NEXT conference.

“With this strategic alliance with Nutanix, Google is addressing one of the most pressing technology challenges faced by enterprises – the ability to manage hybrid cloud applications without sacrificing security or scalability,” Nan Boden, head of Google Cloud’s Global Technology Partners, said in a press release. “Partners like Nutanix are essential for us to build a thriving ecosystem and help enterprises innovate faster."

The cloud platforms will converge for joint customers, who can then manage cloud-based and traditional enterprise apps on a single service.

The program applies for container-based apps using Nutanix’s existing Enterprise Cloud operating system, Google Container Engine, Kubernetes and Acropolis Container Services.

It will also integrate two new Nutanix products, providing one-click hybrid application management between Google Cloud and Nutanix Calm, as well as extension of datacenter environments between Google Cloud and Nutanix Xi.

At least one joint client sees potential in the partnership.

“Nutanix and Google are poised to disrupt traditional IT and cloud computing," Ashok Belani, executive vice president of technology at Schlumberger Limited. (NYSE: SLB), said in the Nutanix release. "We've leveraged both solutions for our private and public cloud services, to drive innovation in the Oil & Gas industry.”
