May the 4th Be with You

In an era of uncertainty and change, no longer are IT modernization efforts optional; such efforts must be core to IT's mission. Join us for this journey of discovery and learn about important ways in which Nutanix’s platform approach can transform your modernization plans into reality!


What was once a pristine, consistent computing environment has given way to chaos, cost, and complexity as organisations have chased the cloud, new storage options, containers, new database types, edge technologies, and so much more. The result is an expensive, difficult to manage IT environment that, in aggregate, may not be able to provide the business with the kind of flexibility that was hoped. Today, CIOs and IT professionals need an IT platform that provides support for all the emerging technologies without adding unnecessary cost and complexity. That platform must span on-premises data centers, edge environments, as well as the cloud.

During this keynote, viewers will get answers to the following questions:

  • How did we get to the current state of IT?
  • What key technologies and services have risen above the rest to require attention from CIOs and IT professionals?
  • How can IT take a platform-centric approach to IT to support emerging needs while also keeping control of costs and complexity?


"The year of VDI” has become something of an inside joke among IT pros and the technology is continually considered as the next step in the evolution of an organisation’s end-user computing environment. The truth, however, is that VDI projects often stalled once IT discovered that costs would spiral out of control thanks to storage design needs and the sheer number of software architectural elements that were required to make it work. Fortunately, today, there are a number of technologies available, including Desktops as a Service (DaaS) that can help companies revolutionize their end user computing capabilities and imbue their organizations with an environment that is cost-effective, simple to deploy, secure, and eminently scalable.

During this keynote, viewers will get answers to the following questions:

  • What factors have made VDI so difficult to deploy?
  • What is the different between VDI and DaaS?
  • Do I have to use the public cloud for DaaS?
  • What role does hyperconverged infrastructure play in a VDI or DaaS deployment?


Hear why Nutanix CIO Wendy Pfeiffer believes that IT is ready to bring the know-how, technology and ingenuity to help workforces be productive from anywhere.In the midst of challenging times, IT is ready to rise up and be the heroes we need --connecting people, building scale-out technology, and helping buy society time to find and deliver a cure to the COVID-19. Every organisation needs end-users have secure access to apps and data from anywhere on any device at any time. However, it is easier said than done.

Join this session to explore the solutions to this tremendous IT challenge. Nutanix solutions for End User Computing (EUC) enables enterprises to deliver secure and responsive access to applications, desktops, and data for their workers.Our solutions accelerate EUC deployments by up to 8x, linearly scaling from pilot to production without impacting end user experience, with greater security and as much as 50% lower TCO than traditional IT infrastructure.You will learn how end-user computing (EUC), including virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) and Desktop-as-a-Service (DaaS), will ensure always-on availability across hybrid clouds while maintaining security and cost control. Understand what to consider when selecting an EUC solution for your unique, desired business outcomes.



Databases are the currency of the business world. As has happened with so many other IT services, database management and administrative has become costly and complex exercise. IT staff struggle with manual maintenance procedures and business units continually seek to adopt new and different database technologies to solve new business challenges and to take advantage of the plethora of data that is created daily. Moreover, as organisations have sought real-time insight, there has been a melding of what were once separate silos of transactional and analytical data. This merging has resulted in strain on poorly-prepared architectures, which now need to support vastly different operational paradigms.

During this keynote, viewers will get answers to the following questions:

  • What factors led to the current state of database management?
  • What infrastructure challenges do databases impose on organizations?
  • What activities take place every day that place so much strain in IT resources in terms of managing databases?
  • How can Database-as-a-Service (DBaaS) help organizations eject cost and chaos from the database equation and replace them with affordable ease of use?


Data – your most valuable asset. What does the future hold in store for your data and what business imperatives are under way to unlock its value? They say business and IT are like oil and water – they just don’t mix. What if there is a way to unite these two functions - where IT can deliver a platform and services that empowers the business to innovate and grow faster, unhindered by the drudgery of technology constraints?

Organisations realise that the secret to success lies in their data. All eyes are on database and the teams that build and manage them. From IT to DBAs, there is an acute awareness of the inherent issues that most databases face today ranging from complexity to performance, risk to cost. Imagine flipping this on its head, where the database becomes the engine of innovation – developers can start building their new app that same day, IT can reign in operational costs by up to 62% and DBA’s can get their weekends back with automated database operations and services.


Legacy infrastructure long ago began to reveal its fatal flaws. Virtualization was supposed to be the great enabler and solve the world’s problems, but underlying infrastructure managed to get in the way. Even as virtualization simplified certain aspects of the environment, new challenges around storage, scale, and manageability emerged. For over a decade now, hyperconverged infrastructure has continued to evolve and, today, forms the basis for a platform-centric approach to IT.

During this keynote, viewers will get answers to the following questions:

  • What is the core definition of hyperconverged infrastructure?
  • What role does the hypervisor play in a modern HCI platform?
  • Why is hyperconvergence alone no longer enough for forward-thinking IT organizations?
  • How does hyperconvergence become the cornerstone of a digital transformation initiative?


For more than a decade now, Nutanix has been a partner to IT in helping build and manage the foundational infrastructure to support users, applications, and data. Join Nutanix Chief Commerical Officer, Tarkan Maner as he shares his vision and unveils the evolution from hyperconverged infrastructure to Multi-Cloud portfolio, and shows how Nutanix is supporting our customers’ journey into a hybrid and multi-cloud era.

Hyper-converged infrastructure (HCI) combines common datacentre hardware using locally attached storage resources with intelligent software to create flexible building blocks that replace legacy infrastructure consisting of separate servers, storage networks, and storage arrays. Benefits include lower TCO, increased performance, and greater productivity within IT teams. Learn the fundamentals of hyperconverged infrastructure and expert tips to build a fast, efficient and highly scalable enterprise datacenter.
