As part of an analysis on the new hyper-converged infrastructure appliances, we interviewed Nutanix Inc.’s Anton Granic about the company’s products and strategies.

Nutanix was the first of these companies, a startup challenging the major storage companies. Others followed including SimpliVity, Pivotal3 and Scale Computing. Major equipment manufacturers including IBM, Hewlett-Packard — with its recent ConvergedSystem 200 — and VMware  — most recently, with its EVO:Rail product — are getting in the game.
