Nutanix, Red Education ink training deal

By

Global enterprise cloud vendor Nutanix has signed an agreement with IT specialist training and professional services company Red Education in a deal aimed at educating, enhancing skills and accelerating certification for Nutanix solutions by its customers and partners in the Australian and New Zealand markets.

Under the agreement, Red Education will provide classroom-based, virtual and on-site training of Nutanix solutions to organisations across the region.

The announcement comes as Nutanix looks to increase new education opportunities and skillsets for customers and partners amid what it says is a growing skills shortage.

Nutanix cites a recent IDC report that found that only 17% of A/NZ organisations outperform their global peers when it comes to attracting talent and developing digital skills.

“The digital skills shortage facing A/NZ threatens our economies, our ability to innovate and our global competitiveness,” said Jamie Humphrey, Head of Nutanix in Australia and New Zealand.

“As we step up our investment in the region, it is incumbent to offer customers and partners the correct training and education opportunities to stay one step ahead and to help redefine their companies via technology and innovation.”

“HCI has become one of the most important solutions for ANZ organisations,” said Zach Zuravle, Managing Director, Red Education.

“We’ve seen considerable demand from our existing partner and end user customer base for HCI training and the technology’s role in a hybrid cloud environment. We anticipate Nutanix will quickly become one of our largest partners.”

“Our aim is to ensure that as HCI adoption accelerates across the region and that ANZ businesses have the necessary tools and expertise to fully exploit the opportunities and value it provides.” said Andrew Diamond, Channel Director ANZ, Nutanix.
