Enterprise cloud computing vendor Nutanix, has partnered with Udacity, a global online learning platform, in a move that will see the two companies launch a new Hybrid Cloud Nanodegree programme.
The programme will enhance learning opportunities in the emerging cloud technologies market that are essential for organisations to up-level their IT infrastructure.
As part of the collaboration, Nutanix will also sponsor 5,000 scholarships to help IT professionals advance their knowledge with this scheme.
“One of our primary goals at Nutanix is to ensure that cloud technology professionals continue to stay on the cusp of innovation in this developing field,” said Wendy Pfeiffer, CIO at Nutanix. “We are excited to have worked closely with Udacity to develop the Hybrid Cloud Nanodegree programme, and now open access to thousands of leading cloud professionals through this scholarship programme.”
As more services move to the cloud, IT teams require the knowledge and expertise it takes to properly manage these infrastructures that increasingly stretch across on-premises and public cloud in a hybrid model.
To fill this educational gap, Udacity and Nutanix have collaborated closely to develop a Nanodegree programme that will advance the knowledge of seasoned IT professionals.
Gabe Dalporto, CEO, Udacity, said:“At Udacity, we strive to empower professionals with the most demanded, forward-looking skills in their fields. We’re delighted to team up with Nutanix, a pioneer and leader in the cloud computing field, to create the new, cutting-edge Hybrid Cloud Nanodegree programme.”
