PlexxiPulse – Join us at .NEXT 2017!

The 2017 Nutanix .NEXT Conference is only a few days away, and we couldn’t be more excited. This year, I’ll be co-presenting with Nutanix’s networking security specialist engineer, Yuan Wang. We’ll be discussing Plexxi HCNTM  integration with Nutanix — and demonstrating the automation and integrated network visualization that our combined solutions provide to customers.

Our session is scheduled for June 28 at 3:25 p.m. at the Gaylord National Hotel in Washington, D.C., in the Woodrow Wilson BCD room.

We will also have a booth, #G9, on the expo floor, where the Plexxi team and I will be available to discuss anything Plexxi and Nutanix. Make sure to drop on by to say hi and see what we’ve been up to!

You can find more details about our session and presence at .NEXT here.
