Including Enterprise applications such as Microsoft Exchange, Microsoft SharePoint, Microsoft SQL Server, development/test environments, and virtual desktop deployments—running virtually on Microsoft Windows Server 2012 R2 with Hyper-V technology.

Nutanix is hosting expert-led 10 minute sessions at the Nutanix NEXT theater every 30 minutes at booth #247 during the expo hours with topics including:

  • Journey to private and hybrid cloud with hyperconverged infrastructure
  • Virtualizing business critical applications such as SQL Server applications
  • Power of integration with Windows Azure Pack
  • Deploying Microsoft Exchange on a web-scale architecture
  • Successful risk-free VDI with Hyper-V
  • Improving data and application availability

You’ll also have a chance to get hands on Nutanix systems and experience first hand how simple it is to provision new application and take advantage of our deep integration with the Microsoft eco-system including Microsoft System Center and Windows Azure Pack.

Nutanix: Get Fit! Shape Up with Nutanix Hyperconverged Infrastructure

Join us to hear how you can shape up your datacenter to handle even the most demanding workloads. Hybrid cloud deployments, enormous tier 0 and tier 1 databases, and even applications spanning multiple sites can be tamed with Nutanix. In this fun technical session, Nutanix experts coach on the use of efficient hyperconverged infrastructure and run through a checklist of requirements for your 12-month datacenter fitness strategy. We finish the session with a review of the Microsoft and Nutanix validated designs and best practices for workloads such as Windows Azure Pack, SQL Server, and VDI that you can put into practice right away to drive up that productivity.
