I was honored this year to be chosen to be a part of the Nutanix Technology Champions. I have only recently started using Nutanix, but I could clearly see what made it different. In an age with the Public Clould all the rage. I could see something like Nutanix really keeping the private data center alive. The Public Cloud is so popular because it is such an easy way to consume resources as you need them. I see what Nutanix is doing how it is really converging everything. Not only are storage and compute converged, but so are the underlying software. One software package to rule them all instead of a seperate piece of software for every feature you need.
That is why I am so excited about being a part of the NTC, and the free pass I received to go to the Nutanix .NEXT conference. Conferences can be really expensive, and I would like to thank Nutanix for investing in its community and showing its appreciation. I know at it I will meet a lot of new people and learn a lot of new things. Conferences are really about networking with your peers, and sharing knowledge. For that reason I see them as valuable as any training. Hopefully I will meet everyone who reads this post, and if you have not registered yet you can at .NEXT
