Last week thousands of IT professionals gathered in London for the third annual .NEXT in Europe. If you couldn’t make it, don’t worry! Today we’re going to go over the major Calm announcements and recap the related sessions, along with links to the presentations and video recordings so that you can catch-up!

Calm in the Keynote: App Mobility Demo

While it’s hard to pick out a favorite moment from the opening keynote, Calm, Xi Beam and Xtract closed it out in style. In the capstone demo, we demonstrated how Beam can identify inefficiencies and wasted spend and recommend a remediation, including triggering a Calm controlled migration to AHV.


Calm can then uses application profiles to stage the migration. During the staging process, Calm seamlessly uses Xtract to copy the instance data over. When it’s time to cutover, Calm calls into Xtract once again and Xtract uses the Nutanix CBT driver to only copy over what’s changed.


While App Mobility is still in development, this is just one of many possibilities that we can unlock by integrating our multi-cloud management portfolio together with our on-prem expertise. We’ll be sure to post announcements and additional information as they become available!




Breakouts to Dive Into

While the keynote is a great place to see what’s possible tomorrow, breakouts are where we can dive into what’s available today. We’ve already posted the presentations from all the breakout sessions on our forums, and are hard at work combining these with the audio recordings from last week. With over 50 breakout sessions across 4 tracks there’s something you’ve always wanted to know more about covered!

In particular, here’s 4 sessions around Calm and automation that we think you’ll love:
