Nutanix (NTNX) - Get Free Report announced Wednesday a partnership with Alphabet Inc's (GOOGL) - Get Free Report Google to integrate applications from Nutanix's on-premise data centers with Google's public cloud, CNBC reported.
The deal suggests San Jose, Calif.-based enterprise cloud company Nutanix has started to consider the public cloud as a viable infrastructure choice to expand from its on-premise hardware.
The first integration of Nutanix hardware and Google cloud software will start in the first quarter of 2018. Pricing is not yet available for Nutanix's newly integrated hyper-converged infrastructure appliances.
"With the public cloud, you have to meet them where they are - that's becoming increasingly clear," said Google Head of Global Alliances Nan Boden. Google's biggest rivals in the public cloud are Microsoft's (MSFT) - Get Free Report Azure and Amazon.com's (AMZN) - Get Free Report Web Services.
Nutanix shares closed up over 9% Wednesday. Google shares closed up over 1%.
What's Hot On TheStreet
The stock market may be overvalued: Now may be the time to pay extra attention to red-hot tech stocks such as Apple (AAPL) - Get Free Report and Facebook (FB) - Get Free Report . As TheStreet first reported Tuesday afternoon, asset valuations are somewhat "rich" by standard metrics, Federal Reserve Chair Janet Yellen said in London during a conversation about economic issues with British Academy President Lord Nicholas Stern. Yellen's comments on equity valuation and bank strength closely mirrored Fed Vice Chairman Stanley Fischer's from an IMF event held earlier in the day.
The iPhone has changed how you make money: TheStreet's Scott Gamm is out with a piece that will really get you thinking. Apple's iPhone will turn 10 years old on Thursday. The device not only turned Apple into one of the world's most valuable companies, helping to boost its stock price more than 700%, it also changed the way we invest and trade stocks Gamm points out.
In fact, the original iPhone -- and the current versions -- have an internal stocks app, allowing users to check the broader market indexes and individual stock prices. Having this in your pocket was a big deal 10 years ago.
"I think it's actually made the life for a typical investor much easier," Angelo Zino, an analyst with CFRA Research, told TheStreet. "I think they've been able to tap news flows much quicker."
