It may have lost the market lead in hyperconverged infrastructure to Dell EMC, but in Nutanix Inc.’s new branding, the HC in HCI might as well stand for hybrid cloud. The company is betting this will attract more customers, pushing further into multicloud management with its just-released Acropolis Operating System 5.5. Can the new features together with its partner ecosystem deliver a private cloud experience to rival the public cloud?
