Nutanix, the leading provider of next-generation datacenter infrastructure solutions, today announced that its 500th IT professional has achieved certification through the Nutanix Platform Professional (NPP) certification program. NPP has been established to provide an accelerated learning path for the design, deployment and administration of Nutanix products and solutions globally. In August 2013, there were 50 individuals certified, recognizing their competency in the core components of the Nutanix architecture. In the less than nine months, 450 additional IT professionals have become certified in North America, Europe and Asia, further advancing Nutanix’s mission to deliver simple and cost-effective virtual datacenter solutions to the enterprise.
The Nutanix Virtual Computing Platform is transforming the management of virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) and many other workloads by bringing the benefits of web-scale IT capabilities to mainstream datacenters, delivering both simplicity and agility. Today, some of the most recognized brands have taken advantage of Nutanix’s web-scale technologies and deployed the company’s products at sites worldwide.
NPP is part of the nu.school Educational Programs, an advocacy focused curriculum that delivers courses via a variety of in-person, remote instructor and eLearning formats globally. Instructor-led training is available worldwide through Nutanix Training Centers and a network of Nutanix Authorized Training Centers that provide training services in multiple local languages.
What Customers Have to Say
"Our main IT offices are distant from major airports, so remote training is always our first choice,” said David Stolte, manager of IT Operations, Prairie North Regional Health Authority. "The remote training offered by Nutanix allowed us to train multiple IT team members and bring them up to speed on the Nutanix Virtual Computing Platform without having them leave the office. The scheduling was flexible, the instructor was knowledgeable and the remote access to a hands-on training lab was ideal."
What Partners Think
“The unprecedented growth in adoption of the Nutanix Virtual Computing Platform goes hand in hand with the demand for training and certification in web-scale IT architecture, deployment and management,” said Franck Laga, Managing Director France & Africa at Exclusive Networks. “For example, in our Paris ATC alone, in the last 30 days over 25 IT professionals got trained and certified on Nutanix technology.”
“Nutanix has very quickly become a strategic partner for our Converged Infrastructure portfolio, and we are seeing the web-scale IT message resonate with our clients,” said Steve Dowling, Director of Converged Infrastructure at Sirius Computer Solutions. “Having all of our Converged solution architects certified as Nutanix Platform Professionals has helped differentiate Sirius as a leader in the Converged Infrastructure market.”
"By providing various choices to build flexible, scalable and high-performance cloud platforms, SDDCs (Software Defined Data Centers) with Nutanix offer real value to our customers to grow their business just in line with market requirements,” said Hamza Nadi, manager Solutions Sales, PROFI Engineering Systems AG. "For PROFI, NPP is not only a platform to meet Nutanix's certification requirements, more importantly we regard NPP as an important quality benchmark to provide substantial expertise and exceptional service to our customers."
