Hello All,


Nutanix is working on a virtualization appliance for the next generation
cloud computing and since we are in stealth mode, I cannot divulge too many
details. The general problem that we are trying to address has been known
for a while, but no company has succeeded in building a complete system due
to the complexity.  With careful design and proper execution, we know we can
make it work.    


We have distributed systems professionals on our team who were part of the
handful of people that built Google File System.  Our Founders, having
worked in organizations such as Oracle, Google as well as young startups
like Aster Data Systems, are well rounded experienced Silicon Valley
entrepreneurs.  We have also raised a record Series A funding from
Lightspeed Ventures.    


We are seeking Site Reliability Engineers with stellar Linux Administration
skills to join our team.


We are ramping up quickly and plan for aggressive growth in the next 12
months and this could significantly become a multi-billion dollar
opportunity.  If you are interested to know more I would be happy to speak
with you to discuss our offerings in greater details.   Thank you for
reading my note and looking forward to hearing from you.
