Welcome to our live coverage of the Nutanix .Next 2017 Keynote. The room is full and the organization is expecting to have over 3000 people in attendance this year.
First up is Julie O’Brien, she is talking about the achievements for the year, like three straight years with an NPS score of at least 90. Some more data such as
- The largest nutanix customer has invested over $50 millions
- AHV adoption has grown to 23%
We are now welcoming nutanix founder and CEO Dheraaj Pandey, his message is evolving around the future of cloud and the transformation that will be required.
The first announcement is now being conducted by Aaditya Sood. The announcement is a live demo of the new integration between PRISM and Calm.IO, how the newly created Nutanix market place (a.k.a App Store) will allow clean and easy application deployment, configuration and management.
Dheraaj is inviting Diane Greene from Google Cloud on stage to talk about the newly announced partnership. Diane is taking about the growth of Google and how Google’s data centers are state of the art and how they received an A rating from Green Peace
Following the conversation with Diane, Dheraaj is now talking about Nutanix Xi. While his comments where light about it, we will learn more about the DR capabilities this offering bring to the IT environment. This is actually a big announcement since it will bring a lot of value to customers.
We are now moving to an executive panel type of conversation about “to build or to buy”. After the panel we wrapped up the session. See you tomorrow.
