Cisco kicked off its Partner Connection event by announcing new incents designed to put more money in partner pockets. One of them won’t, however, be available right away outside the U.S.
The interesting thing here is that Nutanix has expanded the Cisco support on its own, without Cisco being involved in the validation process. That supports the two companies’ earlier stated position that no partnership where Nutanix would be sold on UCS was in the works. This move may, however, indicate that Nutanix is trying to create momentum towards it.
