Last Year’s .NEXT 2019 in Copenhagen, Denmark
In 2019, the .NEXT event was held in Copenhagen (Denmark) and was visited by over 4000 persons. It was an amazing experience and really showed how much Nutanix has grown in the past years. In case you are interested, check out my earlier posts to get (video) impressions of all three days:
