Zensar to Offer Nutanix's Award-Winning Infrastructure Solution That Provides Enterprises a Highly Scalable, Efficient and Cost-Effective Solution for Running Any Virtual Workload

WESTBOROUGH, MA--(Marketwired - January 09, 2014) - Zensar Technologies, a leading software and infrastructure management services provider, and Nutanix, the leading provider of hyper-efficient, massively scalable and elegantly simple data center infrastructure solutions, today announced a strategic partnership that will help enterprises consolidate the compute and the storage tier onto one single appliance.

Zensar will deliver architectural, design, integration and support on the award-winning Nutanix Virtual Computing Platform, an extensible appliance-based server with built-in enterprise storage that optimizes any virtual machine. Nutanix simplifies enterprise data centers by eliminating the complexity of legacy storage systems, and increases server and storage capacity one node at a time with linear scale-out architecture.

According to recent research by Gartner, Inc. in 2016, 82% of server workloads will be running in virtual environments.* As the trends for integrated systems and software-designed storage continues to increase and enterprises evolve to modernized virtualized environments, Nutanix helps to simplify this transition with their unified systems and shared storage model.

With over 20 years of experience delivering infrastructure management solutions to more than 140 countries, Zensar is now providing Nutanix with a global distribution channel to help enterprise clients reduce their IT costs and enhance the productivity and efficiency of their virtual environments.

"Nutanix's virtual computing platform, complete with converged server and storage components, are pre-configured to work together to bring unprecedented price, performance and scalability that is expected by today's clients," said Ankit Ghosh, Senior Vice President, Global IM at Zensar. "The Nutanix solution complements leading technologies Zensar's clients are focused on including cloud; virtualization; end user computing with VDI and application virtualization; big data and disaster recovery. The combination of Nutanix's unique solution and Zensar's infrastructure management offerings will strengthen our value-add by offering clients the ability to simplify and accelerate solution provisioning and streamline data center operations through consolidated management of large-scale virtualized data centers -- resulting in dramatically reduced operating expenses."

"Zensar will be instrumental in helping Nutanix work closely with its customers and introducing Nutanix to new opportunities following the company's explosive growth," said Rick Schulman, Vice President of Sales U.S. East of Nutanix. "Teaming with Zensar will help build more Nutanix next-generation data center solutions and allow us to deliver our industry-leading convergence solutions to customers globally. Nutanix's approach allows storage/compute to be added as needed, reducing client risk and up-front costs."

Zensar partners with clients to holistically align IT programs and goals with enterprise strategy to deliver flexible solutions that drive business processes as well as improve the availability, reliability and performance of Data Center, Security and Compliance, and End User Computing infrastructure. Utilizing its multi-shore methodology Zensar delivers best-in-class IT services through its global delivery centers including Westborough, MA; Slough, UK; Veenendaal, The Netherlands; Shanghai, China; Pune, India and Hyderabad, India.
