Hewlett Packard Enterprise Co. has expressed takeover interest in cloud computing company Nutanix Inc., according to people familiar with the matter. 

HPE has held talks with Nutanix in recent months, said the people, who asked to not be identified because the matter isn’t public. The talks between the companies have been on and off and it’s unclear whether they will be able to reach an agreement over price, they added. Nutanix could also opt to stay independent or another potential buyer could emerge, the people added.
