Nutanix NTNX recently collaborated with Build-A-Bear Workshop BBW, Buzz 3D and TierPoint to jointly develop technology to power an interactive online shopping experience — Bear Builder 3D Workshop.
The new addition will not only accelerate the global retailer and entertainment company’s digital transformation process but also provide consumers an innovative way to purchase a furry friend for life virtually, which can provide real-world hugs to guests of all ages. This high-end digital experience does not have high bandwidth requirements and can be run on both PC and mobile devices.
With this move, Build-A-Bear’s expanded business model goes beyond mere simple transactional engagements. It has leveraged Nutanix Frame, a Desktop as a Service (“DaaS”) solution that streams high performance and graphics-intensive applications to develop this 3D online Workshop.
Build-A-Bear leverages TierPoint’s public cloud-as-a-service model, which runs Nutanix’s hyper-converged infrastructure (HCI) software.
Nutanix, a pioneer in HCI solutions, is expected to benefit from its HCI growth prospects in the long run. Per a report of MarketsandMarkets, the global HCI market is anticipated to reach $27.1 billion by 2025, witnessing a CAGR of 28.1% during the 2020-2025 period.
