It's a Wrap for VMworld 2015 US!

By Nutanix Team

This past week, the Nutanix team hit Moscone Center in San Francisco along with over 20,000 IT pros to Elevate IT at VMworld 2015 US. We met with thousands of attendees about their journey to invisible infrastructure, and we had a blast during the show!

We share a passion and common vision about the future of Enterprise IT with our customers, partners and IT evangelists. VMworld provides us with a platform to come together and reconnect.

We were thrilled to hear from many of the members of our customers, including Hallmark Business Connections, Perth Radiology, Bauer Built, and Lang’s Building Supply about how they have eliminated constraints imposed by legacy 3-tier infrastructures for workloads including virtualized databases and business applications, application and desktop virtualization, and big data using the award-winning Nutanix Acropolis and Prism.

Some additional highlights include the following:

  • We had over 40 NEXT theater presentations on a variety of topics ranging from building successful hybrid clouds, to virtualizing business-critical applications, to deploying successful desktop and application virtualization with either VMware or Citrix, to customer successes.
  • Nutanix technical experts including our VCDX and NPXs conducted over 100s of 1:1 hands on demos and virtualization technical design sessions, ranging from network design, to application best practices, to cloud strategy
  • We held Nutanix Acropolis + Prism briefing and demos with hundreds of attendees and raised over $1000 for the Elevate Hope Foundation!
  • We participated in a variety of different sessions throughout the show.
    • Nutanix Industry Panel: Evolution from 3-tier to Hyperconverged Infrastructure (Wed Sept 2, 8:00 AM – 9:00 AM)
    • STP6311 – Datacenter Battles: Hyperconvergence vs. 3-Tier Infrastructure (Tues/ Sept 1, 12:20 PM – 12:40 PM)
  • We won this year’s vFlip Cup Tournament!
