Reading Time: 3 minutes

The first Nutanix .NEXT event was in the late 2015 and there were several changes in the company, in the products and in the event content.

Now there well be a new Nutanix .NEXT event, from May 8 to 10 at New Orleans. Still 3 days (or two full) as usual, but a lot of difference, if you are looking at the long sponsor list or on the agenda.

If you can’t attend, you can still follow the conference keynote live: https://www.nutanix.com/go/next-live.php

The keynotes will be the following (the timing is in the local timezone):
