Nominate a Non-Profit for Nutanix’s $500k Web-scale Wish Datacenter Makeover

November 13th, 2014

Nutanix has initiated a rather big, bold and generous program to donate to a non-profit organisation $500,000 in data center infrastructure.

The program is called Web-scale Wish and the community will get to choose the non-profit who wins the Grand Prize makeover which is made up of:

  • three Nutanix NX-3050 nodes
  • three Ultimate Software Licenses
  • three years of Nutanix Platinum Plus support
  • two-day on-site installation service by Nutanix

Anyone can nominate an organisation they feel would benefit and nominations are open until Friday November 21st. There are so many non-profit organisations doing such amazing work but often the benefits of a modern IT infrastructure are just a dream and certainly way out of reach financially for organisations committing their finances to helping others.

There are some requirements to be met from the non-profit to be considered:

  • Be a non-profit, non-partisan organisation based in the United States, Canada, Australia, New Zealand or the United Kingdom
  • Have a currently working data center that could benefit from web-scale converged infrastructure
  • Be able to complete and meet Environment Assessment criteria

All the submissions will be initially judge and I’m honoured to be one of the community judges along with Stu Miniman,Douglas Brown,Michael Webster and Steve Greenberg.

The final three organisations we select will then be featured in a virtual event on Wednesday, December 10 where the entire community will have the opportunity to vote to determine the Grand Prize recipient.

This is a fantastic initiative where you can help Nutanix make a real IT difference to a non-profit you care about that needs an IT makeover and I am very proud they’ve asked me to help with the judging.
