Hi @vvenkitaswamy,

I think your best bet would be to work with a local channel partner in Chicago, or the local Nutanix team there. I personally am not familiar with the partners or teams in Chicago area.

ping @aluciani


Yep, I would agree with Steve here. But if you need anything feel free to call out!

Hi @selgan , @aluciani

Thanks

Hello Omaha Nutanix User Group Champtions

Greetings. This is Venkat, IT Project Manager from Group O, MIlan IL.

I am eager to understand more about the Nutanix hyperconverged platform (hardware) to host our VDI environment and looking for partners in the Chicago region who can provide us a demo and help us with recommendations for the right sizing the solution.

Can you help me with providing some pointers to the right direction.? Any help is much appreciated.
Unfortunately I do not find champions for IL and IA .

Thanks

Venkat

@dtomakin Thanks for the feedback. Do you think there could be an interest to have one in Tampa as well?

Thanks
