Exclusive Group releases NuMeRu for data centre transformation
Mon 15 Jan 2018
Value-added services and technologies group Exclusive has released NuMeRu, a bundle of products from three existing market leaders, to help partners with data centre transformation.
NuMeRu, which refers to Nutanix, Mellanox and Rubrik, is a package which contains solutions, services and go-to-market support for partners of BigTec, a subsidiary of Exclusive Group.
The idea of the bundle is to make it easier to migrate from legacy data centres, as well as create new opportunities for partners to move customers into an enterprise hybrid cloud architecture.
The integrated data centre stack is intended to combine the technical aspects offered by the existing firms, with professional services, financing options and marketing solutions.
Martin Bichler, BigTec vendor manager, said: “NuMeRu takes its cue from the open standards principles of next-generation vendors who value interoperability over locking customers into proprietary technology, and we have surrounded this with specialised technical, financing and marketing resources to maximise partner success.
“NuMeRu is a fully integrated stack with a single, comprehensive service wrap. It is more than just the sum of its parts too; offering further easy integration with other complementary solutions from the BigTec portfolio to increase deal sizes and customer longevity.”
NuMeRu is made up of offerings from Nutanix, a hyperconverged compute, virtualisation and storage platform, Mellanox, an SDN-based Ethernet cloud network which is intended to improve data centre performance, and Rubrik, a cloud-based backup, recovery, search and analytics tool.
The combination of these three products, alongside Exclusive’s professional and financial service offerings, is intended to provide a foundation for data centre transformation. In particular, the group aims to help customers move towards hybrid cloud.
Jan Ursi, senior director channel & OEM at Nutanix, said: “We are confident the NuMeRu solution will help satisfy the high demand we see for solutions that bring the true cloud experience to the privacy of the enterprise data centre, with real freedom of choice concerning platform, hypervisor and hybrid cloud integration.”
