Nutanix is a storage vendor that produces a hyper-converged storage system called Virtual Compute Platform.

The San Jose, Calif.-based company came out of stealth in August 2011 with the Complete Cluster, one of the first hyper-converged storage products. In June 2013, the Complete Cluster was rebranded as the Virtual Compute Platform, and two new configurations with smaller and larger capacities were added to the line. The Virtual Compute Platform ships with VMware ESX or Red Hat KVM and includes both hard disk drives and solid-state drives. It also provides storage features such as tiering, compression and deduplication.

Nutanix revenue surpassed $100 million in its first two years, and has since more than doubled. In June 2014, Nutanix entered in an OEM deal with Dell that allowed Nutanix software to be sold on Dell Inc. PowerEdge servers.
