Nutanix .NEXT and that’s a Wrap
What happens when over 5,000 Nutanix Channel Partners from over 71 countries gather in one place? Jazz bands, Mardi Gras parades, and product announcements are just the start. Check out what people are saying:
Nutanix announced several compelling new features and products, including Calm, Beam and Flow. Greg Smith, Vice President of Product Marketing with Nutanix told CRN, “Our goal is to make clouds invisible so that customers do not have to concern themselves with the underlying infrastructure, including cloud infrastructure, so they can focus solely on the applications and services that power their business.”
"Nutanix has shown, based on their product development focuses highlighted at the conference, that they understand the industry shift in IT. The focus is now on the business owner, not the infrastructure, and application agility, flexibility, and portability are the new drivers for hybrid infrastructure. Solutions like Nutanix Era, Beam, and X-Ray all show that they understand the state of the IT world and how customers interact and consume their data." ~Brandon Jackson, Technical Architect - Datacenter Converged Solutions (DCO) at CDW
