Gear Up for the Enterprise Cloud at Ignite


By Chris Brown By Chris Brown

Ignite may have moved to the fall, but that doesn’t change the action-packed schedule planned for the event. With over 20,000 people coming to Atlanta over the next week from all sorts of different backgrounds, there’s something for everyone. Nearly everyone relies on Microsoft technologies in one way or another and there’s no event like Ignite to truly appreciate this.

Nutanix is proud to be a platinum sponsor this year, and as such we have a very exciting schedule of events planned. Visit us at booth #1310 to learn why Nutanix is the best platform for Microsoft applications – from Exchange to SQL – and learn how Nutanix and Microsoft have teamed up to jointly release a hybrid cloud in a box with Microsoft Cloud Platform System (CPS) – Standard for Nutanix.

Nutanix Integrations with Microsoft

We’ve got a variety of demos at our booth, showing our commitment to Microsoft technologies and the awesome work that’s come out of our joint solutions. In addition to a live demo of CPS-S, we will demonstrate how users can integrate Nutanix tightly with new or existing Hyper-V deployments, delivering awesome new features and elevating Hyper-V deployments to new levels. We’ll also show the combination of Microsoft availability features with Nutanix’s built in systems – including Azure backups – to provide the highest levels of availability for the most demanding applications easily.

Finally, we’ll talk about a variety of other solutions ranging from tier-1 apps such as Exchange to Remote Office/Brand Office solutions (ROBO). And that’s not all….

Throughout the show, we will have over 50 technical theater sessions, including special spotlights from our customers and partners. Come and hear from your peers in the industry about how Nutanix is helping them elevate their IT departments and Microsoft applications. Don’t miss the solution-focused sessions on topics such as VDI, Hybrid Cloud, SQL, Exchange, and Windows 10 desktop virtualization. Seats fill fast, so come early!
