Riyadh, KSA – Nutanix (NASDAQ: NTNX) a leader in private cloud, hybrid, and multicloud computing, has today announced that International Maritime Industries (IMI) has adopted its Nutanix Hyperconverged Infrastructure (HCI) and Nutanix Prism Pro management solution. Nutanix’s technology will provide IMI with a robust platform to host its mission-critical applications and reduce its IT footprint by around 25%, freeing up time to focus on innovation and increased cost efficiencies.

IMI will be the largest maritime yard in the MENA region offering advanced, sustainable services and driving the development of Saudi Arabia’s maritime industry. The company’s full-service yard provides new build and maintenance, repair, and overhaul (MRO) services for commercial vessels and offshore jackup rigs. State-of-the-art technologies including artificial intelligence, biometrics and the Industrial Internet of Things are embedded into the yard’s infrastructure, offering customers a cutting-edge advantage in an era of digitalization.

IMI also provides customers and business partners with innovative lifecycle management offerings, high-quality products, efficient schedules, and internationally competitive prices. It is currently beginning to transition into its operational phase, a major milestone in IMI’s journey to support Saudi Arabia’s vision of building a thriving logistics sector with a technologically advanced and sustainable maritime industry at its center.

Besides its technology leadership position, Nutanix has a very attractive value proposition from a cost perspective – not just the acquisition cost of the solution but also the total cost of ownership (TCO).

Mohammad Abulhouf, Country Manager - Saudi & Bahrain at Nutanix, said: “With the other solutions in the market, IMI had to pay separately for their virtualization platforms, but the Nutanix platform was bundled in the overall offering. The solution is estimated to have brought down the IT infrastructure footprint by around 25%, which in turn translates to savings in power, cooling and maintenance. The company now only needs limited IT admin staff looking after its HCI infrastructure, instead of having separate multiple admins for compute, storage and network management, which frees up time to focus on innovation as opposed to ‘keeping the lights on’.”

Engineer; Emad Al-Humam, Senior Vice President of Corporate Services atIMI, said: “In order for IMI to achieve its vision of becoming a leading provider of maritime products and services to the world, we apply cutting edge solutions and technologies to maximise performance across every aspect of the business. Working with Nutanix ensures we are able to reduce our IT footprint, enable cost savings, simplify complexity and enhance the efficiency and reliability of our IT environment, while providing a robust platform for our applications and operational systems.”

IMI’s Nutanix implementation, which was completed in just under three weeks, spans three clusters – a production cluster, database cluster and a backup cluster. Once the engineering department is up and running, the production and database clusters are expected to scale rapidly which is something that the Nutanix solution offers with its simple ‘one-click’ feature.
