Nutanix was founded early 2009 and began to ship its first Hyper Converged Infrastructure (HCI) solution, Virtual Computing Platform (VCP), in 2011. The core of the Nutanix solution is the Nutanix Operating System (NOS). In 2015 Nutanix rebranded its solution to Xtreme Computing Platform (XCP), mainly because Nutanix developed its own hypervisor, Acropolis Hypervisor (AHV), that is based on KVM. In 2015 Nutanix also rebranded its operating system to Acropolis (AOS). In 2016 Nutanix rebranded its solution to Enterprise Cloud Platform (ECP).
At the start of January 2019 the company had a customer install base of almost 12,500 customers worldwide and there were approximately 4,700 full-time employees working for Nutanix.
