The American enterprise cloud computing said that it has closed the largest deal in company history in Q4 of fiscal 2018, worth more than $20 million with an agency in the U.S. Department of Defense. The company informed that the customer will use software to operate 15 remote sites running two different networks.

Without disclosing the name of the government agency, Nutanix said that the customer selected its after its previous solution was crippled by power losses and complex operations. “These power losses resulted in IT teams spending harrowing hours coaxing the previous solutions back to life to avoid data loss, all at the detriment of operations near these sites,” claimed Nutanix.

This deal was one of five worth more than $1 million in the U.S. federal vertical, and one of 46 worth more than $1 million overall in Q4. According to IDC, “Edge computing is growing increasingly important in IoT environments with intermittent access to connectivity, low tolerance for network latency, or high-security requirements.”1 These remote sites require robust software platforms that can support specialized hardware and, more importantly, quickly and securely process data on-site, eliminating the challenges of transmitting vast amounts data back to a centralized cloud over unreliable network connections.

“Government agencies face enormous pressure to control costs, streamline IT infrastructure, and maintain application performance from basic IT functions to critical national security tasks,” said Chris Howard, Vice President, Public Sector Sales, Nutanix. “The simplicity, ease of use and overall great value of our software is why U.S. federal organizations have been such early and sustained adopters of our platform. We’re excited to continue to support their missions.”

As government agencies increasingly shift attention toward modernizing IT infrastructure to take advantage of the cloud, approximately 350 have adopted the Nutanix Enterprise Cloud Platform software to reduce IT silos, cost and complexity within their infrastructure, creating an ideal foundation for the hybrid cloud. With native virtualization capabilities, application automation, centralized management, one-click upgrades, and government-grade security features, Nutanix can support any application at any scale, said the company.
