NTC-2017 (1).png

 

I am excited to announce the 2017 group of Nutanix Technology Champions (NTC). Each year, we continue to see incredible interest and demand from the vCommunity. On behalf of the entire community team here at Nutanix, we are grateful and excited about the upcoming year and collaborating on some really cool stuff.

 

The Nutanix Technology Champion program is a truly global program and is composed of IT professionals from every cloud, application group, and technology. They are committed to news ways of thinking that will enable their organizations to deliver on business outcomes.

 

I am looking forward to getting to know you all and will be contacting our new NTC members shortly with more details. Take the time to congratulate one another, and if you are sharing on social, use #NutanixNTC so other's can engage in the conversation.

 

It's going to be a fun year! If you any questions, please reach out to me @aluciani

What are You Looking Forward to at .NEXT?

by Community Manager ‎05-30-2016 09:53 AM - edited ‎05-31-2016 04:46 PM (2,224 Views)

Our .NEXT conference is just around the corner, and we asked several of our NTCs what they are looking forward to the most while attending .NEXT, some are the first time attendee's while other attended last year- here is what they had to say.

 

Eric Miller (NTC)

I am looking forward to the wealth of expertise that can be tapped at .NEXT. All Nutanix employees are very approachable including the developers, engineers, and product managers. They are willing to listen to my feedback and answer any questions I may have related to making the most of our Nutanix investment at Vizergy. - .NEXT is a great experience that I hope to be a part of for years to come.

Sylvain Huguet (NTC)

I'm attending .Next for the first time this year, missed it for no good reason last year, so I'm looking forward to meeting with fellow end-users to exchange stories and use cases for Nutanix. Also, I'm going there to get a sneak-peak at the future of the products and the company, as I'm sure that Nutanix has kept some incredible goodies in the bag and that the best is yet to come. Finally, I'm looking forward to meeting my fellow NTC and NCUG Leaders for a get-together and networking time. Meeting those guys in person after chatting with them so much is something that I can't wait for!

Kevin Martin (NTC)

In less than 30 days Nutanix. NEXT will be upon us! I’m super excited as unfortunately I was not able to attend the event in Miami, FL last year. Trace3 just recently kicked off our HCI practice, and I’m looking forward to how Nutanix will help shape and lead this solution based offering. There is no doubt in my mind that Nutanix will engage with its clients, as well as partners to deliver an outstanding conference packed with innovation and a next generation hybrid cloud-based vision.

 

I’m interested in learning more about extensibility into different cloud-based offerings and how the Acropolis hypervisor will transform Datacenters in the years to come. I will also be participating in Nutanix’s new certification – NPSX. This is a tremendous opportunity for myself and Trace3 as a trusted advisor to our clients, as well as becoming a real extension of the Nutanix sales team. This is going to be a great experience, and I hope to see many of my colleagues there!

Neal Dolson (NTC)

I'm most looking forward to all the announcements that are sure to be made at .NEXT - last year didn't disappoint, and I'm sure this year won't either. I'm also looking forward to attending sessions on how other people are using Nutanix to support their businesses outside of my day to day activities. It'll also give me a chance to meet people whose blogs I read on a regular basis and rub elbows with peers in the community. And last but not least, I can't leave out the entertaining nightlife that Las Vegas has to offer.

Daemon Behr (NTC)

.NEXT will be a coming together of some of the most knowledgeable and forward-thinking people in the industry. The leaps in computing evolution that we are seeing are not just from engineering in technologies but from architects, developers and other people that are simplifying complexity.

 

I am currently writing a book called “Designing Risk in IT Infrastructure” which looks at the design process from many angles such as; deconstruction, psychology, critical infrastructure engineering, mathematics, and risk modeling. Several contributors and technical editors of this book will be .NEXT. It will truly be a great conference of intellectual wealth.

Michael Wilmsen (NTC)

My main reason for attending .NEXT is talking to peers and people who are busy thinking about the future of Hyperconverged storage and way the future of the datacenter will be.
This will give me a great opportunity to get an inside peek of the future.

Rene Van Den Bedem (NTC/NPX/VCDX)

I am looking forward to collaborating with my brother NPX/NTCs and meeting like-minded Nutants who believe in transformation and hyper-converged infrastructure. I am also eagerly anticipating the NX Files session.

Bart Donders (NTC) 

With my visit to .NEXT next month, I expect to explore more features and possibilities of the Nutanix Platform. My current projects are some ‘basic’ virtualization projects, and I hope to learn more about more use cases with the platform. Besides that I am curious about the roadmap for the platform and which functionality will be added. Of course I am looking forward to meet the people in person, so I can add a real face to a name.
