Hands-on Labs

The Enterprise Cloud is best understood when you get some quality time with the product itself – which is why we’ve arranged hands-on labs at .NEXT. During your session, you’ll get to explore Calm, APIs, Microsegmentation, and Acropolis File System -- just to name a few! -- first hand. If that sounds interesting, this is where you sign up. The labs will be available all day for drop ins, or you can add one of our four dedicated sessions to your schedule via the Agenda Builder.

Genius Bar

Get advice and answers from the globally recognized experts on Nutanix technology, our Nutanix Platform Experts (NPXs). They'll be staffing the Genius Bar in the Solutions Expo all week, so bring any questions you're having and take advantage of their knowledge and experience.



Tuesday, May 8th – Thursday, May 10th

BYOD Certification Center

If you’ve attended one of our training programs but have yet to earn the certification for it, this is your chance. Every day from 8am-6pm we will be offering the opportunity to earn your certificates, without attending one of the on-site training courses.

No registration is required, simply walk on in. See the agenda builder for location
