Nutanix launches new APAC flagship office in Singapore

31 Jan 2019

Nutanix has continued its commitment to Asia with the opening of a new regional office.

The enterprise cloud specialist cut the ribbon and officially opened the doors to its new Singapore-based office as part of its continued investment in the region.

The office is located at Suntec Tower 1 in the heart of the city and is capable of housing 120 staff. Nutanix asserts it has invested significantly in its new flagship facility for the region to provide the most modern workplace environment that is focused on employee engagement, productivity, creativity, and customer experience.

Nutanix Global chief financial officer Duston Williams attended the ceremony to officially open the facility overlooking the Singapore city skyline from the 31st-floor office.

“This opening marks yet another step in our ongoing commitment to Singapore and the wider Asia Pacific - and demonstrates our confidence and aspirations for the future,” says Williams.

“Asia Pacific’s dynamism and growth matches our own, so it’s only natural that our new regional home should be in one of the region’s most successful states.”        

Going deeper within the open floor facility, features include an employee café (with free food, apparently a common theme in all Nutanix offices), and refresh zones that include a pool table, air hockey, and a library. There is also a dedicated training centre and collaboration lounge where both staff and customers can get hands-on with Nutanix’s latest technologies.

The office has been structured around neighbourhood seating, which Nutanix says supports a flexible, agile environment that encourages collaboration and reduces costs to the organisation.

And in a trend emerging among many of the major tech players, Nutanix has also gone down the green route with the office currently underway with certification by LEED, the most widely used green building rating system and a globally recognised symbol of sustainability achievement.

Nutanix Asia Pacific senior vice president Matt Young says the new office is just another in a series of office expansions for the company after it recently opened a new Tokyo facility and expanded its India operations in Ahmedabad and Pune.

“This workplace is designed for a high growth, fast paced, digital future and embraces all the freedom, flexibility and simplicity that we provide to our customers,” says Young.

“We now have one the most advanced offices, in the world’s most dynamic region. We are all thrilled at the opportunities ahead.”
