Hyperconverged infrastructure vendor Nutanix has completed two acquisitions as part of its plans to create an enterprise cloud platform.
The California-based firm has snapped up data storage software vendor PernixData and development and automation start-up Calm.io, both for undisclosed amounts.
The two acquisitions will allow Nutanix to accelerate the delivery of its enterprise cloud platform, the company claimed.
It added that the double swoop will allow Nutanix to "pioneer new software stacks for storage-class memory systems", allowing it to create a platform that rivals both public cloud and on-premises infrastructures.
"Today is a very special day in Nutanix's history," said Nutanix CEO Dheeraj Pandey.
"[PernixData and Calm.io] have dreamt big and persevered against great odds to build phenomenal products.
"We are honoured to welcome them into the Nutanix family, and build the next generation of innovative products and truly help our customers realise the vision of the enterprise cloud."
Nutanix announced last week that CDW UK had been awarded Elite Partner status, joining three other European firms and 12 firms globally.
Lee Hendra, CDW UK DC solutions director, said: "To be recognised as an Elite partner by Nutanix is a great validation of the strength of our partnership, which continues to grow every year.
"Over the past few years we have seen Nutanix evolve in size and establish itself as a recognised market leader."
