New Hardware Options for Nutanix Enterprise Cloud Platform

Nutanix announced that its Enterprise Cloud Platform will be available as a term-based license for deployment of Hewlett Packard Enterprises (HPE) ProLiant rackmount servers and Cisco UCS B-series blade servers, adding to previously announced support for the Cisco UCS C-series platform.
These new supported hardware options will broaden the deployment of Nutanix beyond newly purchased appliances from the company or its global OEM partners, Dell and Lenovo, to the millions of HPE ProLiant and Cisco UCS servers already in use in corporate and cloud data centers.
Customers will enjoy the optionality of deploying newly licensed Nutanix software-only entitlements on qualified HPE or Cisco servers while also retaining the option to transfer their software-only entitlements to another qualified third-party platform, including additional x86 servers anticipated to be validated at a later date.
Nutanix plans to make its Enterprise Cloud Platform software available for new and existing HPE ProLiant servers by Q4 calendar 2017. Specific models and supported server configurations will be announced at the time of availability. Nutanix Enterprise Cloud Platform software for Cisco UCS B-Series Blades is available now as a tech preview with general availability this quarter.
