Nutanix makes infrastructure invisible, elevating IT to focus on the applications and services that power their business. The Nutanix Enterprise Cloud Platform blends web-scale engineering and consumer-grade design to natively converge server, storage, virtualization and networking into a resilient, software-defined solution with rich machine intelligence. This results in predictable performance, cloud consumption models, robust security, and seamless application mobility for all enterprise applications at any scale.

As classrooms evolve further towards ever-changing technology, from kindergarten to graduate classes, IT infrastructure should be more adaptable than ever. Nutanix and Carahsoft understand that school systems have to stretch their dollars across an overabundance of activities and programs. By purchasing through contracts like VASCUPP, our partnership will ensure that school system virtualization is being met with ease and optimization.


Nutanix helps government agencies meet and exceed the requirements of the Data Center Optimization Initiative (DCOI) as established in OMB Memorandum M-16-19, which supersedes the Federal Data Center Consolidation Initiative (FDCCI) and fulfills the data center requirements of the Federal Information Technology Acquisition Reform Act (FITARA). By moving to Nutanix, agencies can promote cloud (the Federal Cloud Computing Strategy “Cloud First” policy) and shared services, and transition their existing infrastructure to a more efficient platform that will leverage the technological advancements that optimize infrastructure. Nutanix’s unique innovative approach saves money and meets policies with a simple proven migration path off on-premise legacy outdated infrastructure.

Implementing the solutions within the Carahsoft Nutanix Category Management Offering will allow the Federal Government to achieve:

  • Savings based on annual spend on Nutanix Solutions
  • Optimization and consolidation of Hybrid Cloud Infrastructure
  • Initiatives and objectives outlined in DCOI, FDCCI, FITARA, and the Cloud First Policy
