“In the early weeks of the pandemic, we worked closely with clients as they scrambled to support what some thought would be a temporary surge in employees working outside the office,” said Greg Ahlheim, Vice President of Managed Services and Implementation at TierPoint. “Today, many of these clients are considering the real possibility that work-from-home will be a long-term if not permanent arrangement for a significant percentage of their workforce.

TierPoint VDS powered by Nutanix helps our clients efficiently and effectively navigate such changes, with a highly secure solution that’s fully managed by our expert engineers. And because the VDS solution runs on client-dedicated equipment, it enables more consistent, predictable performance and stronger service levels than shared-infrastructure offerings.”

Organizations around the world use Nutanix software to create a single platform to manage any app, at any location and at any scale, for their private, hybrid and multi-cloud environments.

“The launch of TierPoint’s VDS powered by Nutanix highlights the growing partnership between TierPoint and Nutanix,” said Chandra Nath, Vice President, Xi Partner Network at Nutanix. “We continue to empower successful business outcomes for our customers and their remote operations during these challenging times and beyond.”
