Nutanix has signed the biggest contract in its history, a $20mn agreement with an agency in the US Department of Defense to power edge cloud.

The customer, part of Nutanix's strong customer base of public sector agencies, will use the company's software to operate 15 remote sites running two different networks after its previous solution was crippled by power losses and complex operations.

"Government agencies face enormous pressure to control costs, streamline IT infrastructure, and maintain application performance from basic IT functions to critical national security tasks," said Chris Howard, Vice President, Public Sector Sales, Nutanix.

"The simplicity, ease of use and overall great value of our software is why U.S. federal organisations have been such early and sustained adopters of our platform. We’re excited to continue to supporting their missions."

Approximately 350 have adopted the Nutanix Enterprise Cloud Platform software to reduce IT silos, cost and complexity within their infrastructure, creating an ideal foundation for the hybrid cloud

According to IDC, 'edge computing is growing increasingly important in IoT environments with intermittent access to connectivity, low tolerance for network latency, or high security requirements'.
