Why We’re Excited About The Global .NEXT Digital Experience

September 4, 2020

It’s hard to believe that we’re just a few days away from the Global .NEXT Digital Experience.

If you need more information or want to register, make sure you do so ASAP so you can share in the digital experience. You’ll also need to be registered to access the links we have in the following blog on events and sessions we're really looking forward to experiencing! Registering takes all of five to six minutes, tops!

With keynotes and more than 100 breakout sessions and more On Demand content then you will know what to do with, this year’s Online .NEXT customer and partner event will be jam-packed with great speakers, topics, sessions and what we have all become so accustomed to these days, meeting and networking online! We’re looking forward to meeting the faces and names that continue to make Nutanix the industry leader it has become over the years. It seems hard to believe three short years ago we were all in Washington, DC, launching HYCU for Nutanix, the industry’s first purpose-built data protection solution for Nutanix customers and partners! You can check out a few of our growing list of firsts and uniques with our Nutanix partnership.

HYCU's invitation to the .NEXT conference

As a Platinum Sponsor, we’re proud of our Strategic Technology Alliance Partnership, and hope you will take time to check out what HYCU is doing at .NEXT. At a minimum, make sure you stop by the HYCU Virtual Booth during Office Hours and learn a little more about why leading CIOs are choosing HYCU.

There’s so much going on next week that it really is hard to narrow it down to a few items. However, after checking with our team, here are just a few sessions and events we’re excited about during the Global .NEXT Digital Experience. If you’re not able to make any of the events at the time they’re scheduled to run, don’t worry, they’ll be available On Demand. Again, to access the links, you'll need to register!

We are sure coming out of this you will be sharing similar comments we hear from customers, “The future is Nutanix. The future is AHV.” And, since we introduced HYCU for Nutanix as tightly integrated with AHV in mind, we’re partial to this session. And, is a great reason why we hear from customers that “The future is HYCU.”

11:35 AM - 12:15 PM America/Los_Angeles | 2:35 PM - 3:15 PM EDT

Speakers: Jason Dalessio, Senior Systems Engineer, HYCU

Since we launched HYCU for Nutanix, we fundamentally believe there is a different way in which organizations need to address their data protection challenges. It’s why we developed and introduced the first of our solutions, Nutanix Data Protection for Nutanix. And we’ve come a long way since. We now help with multi-cloud data management challenges with migration, management and DR from on-premises environments to public cloud. That’s great news especially now for Nutanix customers looking to take advantage of Nutanix Clusters on AWS. HYCU has that covered as well. Make sure you check out what Jason has to share on HYCU and how HYCU can help simplify your backup and recovery!
