In this promoted episode of the podcast, TechCentral is joined by Nutanix vice president for customer success Pai Venugopal and regional sales director Paul Ruinaard for a discussion on hyperconverged infrastructure, or HCI, and its importance in enterprise cloud computing.

In the podcast, Venugopal talks about the Nasdaq-listed company’s focus, where it’s positioned in the market and why HCI has become a hot-button topic in enterprise IT — particularly as companies consider their options around cloud.

Venugopal and Ruinaard talk about the somewhat surprising findings a new global survey, Nutanix’s Enterprise Cloud Index, the results of which were released this week at the company’s .NEXT on Tour event in Johannesburg, and why companies are again looking to on-premise and hybrid solutions in favour of a wholesale shift to the public cloud.

Ruinaard talks about what the survey says about local enterprise customers in the context of the global results and the discussions he’s typically having with them.

Interestingly, for 60% of enterprises, security is the biggest factor in their cloud decisions.
