Whether you are just looking to get started with Desktop as a Service (DaaS) in your organization or you are a seasoned DaaS veteran, I highly recommend checking out the latest EUC State of the Union (2022 - 2023) white paper put together by the team (including yours truly) at DaaS Like A Pro.
Nutanix EUC Tech Summit, the zero-fluff event designed by and for EUC geeks and visionaries, was a huge success. Thousands of viewers tuned in for keynotes, breakouts, and demos from 17 speakers working on the cutting edge of EUC. One of the top sessions was a great interview with Shawn Bass (CTO VMware), Christian Reilly (former VP and CTO at Citrix) and Nikola Bozinovic (founder of Frame, VP/GM Desktop Services at Nutanix).
"If you're grateful it's hard to be grumpy" is a quote that helps me to stay focused on the good and positive things in life - especially these days with very limited in-person communication, all kinds of restrictions, polarisation, social isolation, and higher rate of burn-out and various global challenges.
Yes, there are reasons to be concerned and grumpy, but it is important to stay positive since there are many things to be grateful for. Of course my reasons differ from those of others, but I am grateful for my family (3 adult children and a great wife), awesome friends, freedom, relationship with God, and health.
Also, the ability to exercise outdoors, walk the dog, play games with kids, enjoy a nice BBQ, a great motor ride and working for Nutanix, with a focus on End User Computing, are reasons for me personally to be grateful. "If you love what you do you never have to work a day in your life" applies to me. By the way, a great book to read is "Factfulness: Ten Reasons We're Wrong About the World--and Why Things Are Better Than You Think."
Nutanix has doubled down on end-user computing technology in recent years, investing heavily in the virtual desktop and application space. To date, Nutanix is widely known for our hyperconverged infrastructure (HCI) technology which optimizes the deployment and management of traditional VMware and Citrix VDI workloads. But we’ve also made great strides in the emerging Desktop-as-a-Service (DaaS) market with our acquisition of Frame in 2018. If you’re unfamiliar, Frame is a platform able to stream Windows applications and desktops to any device with a browser. The application and desktop workload Virtual Machines can run on-premises with Nutanix AHV and in public clouds such as Azure, GCP or AWS.
