New marketing and education resources for IBM Hyperconverged Systems powered by Nutanix
IBM Business Partners are continuously looking for new ways to generate leads and boost revenue, and we at IBM are dedicated to finding ways to help. With many organizations already looking at hyperconverged infrastructure (HCI) solutions as part of their long-term infrastructure strategy, the lucrative HCI market could be the next big opportunity for IBM Business Partners.
Following the recent announcement of the new IBM Hyperconverged Systems powered by Nutanix, IBM Business Partners now have powerful solutions to offer customers interested in bringing new data-intensive workloads to hyperconverged deployments. Bringing together the one-click software simplicity and scalability of Nutanix with the data-crunching performance of IBM Power Systems, these solutions can help customers simplify data center modernization, streamline cloud migration and facilitate the deployment of new transformative cognitive applications.
To help you take full advantage of these new Nutanix on Power Systems solutions, we’re providing several key sales, marketing and education resources.
