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.

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

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
