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.

Obtain government-grade security and the tactical edge that the U.S. federal and defense organizations require to simplify the management of private and public cloud resources. Nutanix and Carahsoft understand the need for field operators to be able to deploy enterprise-grade resources and mission-critical application on-demand, in the most austere conditions. Our partnership will modernize and reduce the cost of IT to meet requirements such as the Data Center Optimization Initiative and the Management of Government Technology Act by purchasing through contracts like GSA Schedule and SEWP.

State & Local

Gain the freedom of choice and make the transition to an efficient, virtualized datacenter and cloud built on hyperconverged infrastructure that state and local government agencies require. Nutanix and Carahsoft can help provide the balance between budget restrictions with the growing demands for IT services. Solutions include Nutanix Enterprise Cloud OS, which enables public sector organizations to deliver better services. By purchasing through contracts like Texas DIR-TSO-2660, our partnership will ensure the freedom to build powerful and cost-effective IT solutions. View more state and local contracts here.


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
