Nick Bowie, VCDX #202, is the 20th VCDX to join Nutanix


Nick Bowie recently joined Nutanix as a Senior Solutions Architect with the Solutions Performance & Engineering Team for Business Critical Applications. Nick helps Engineering and Product Management develop platforms suited to business-critical apps and validate the apps on top of the platform. Nick is focusing on SQL databases, such as Microsoft SQL, MySQL and Postgres.

It is Nutanix’s corporate culture of transparency that first attracted Nick to the technology, and then later to joining the company. Five years ago, Nick came across the video by Steve Poitras (author of The Nutanix Bible) on deploying Nutanix in 15 minutes and realized that this was a game-changer. After looking more into the technology, Nick joined Nutanix’s first (and only) NZ partner at the time – ViFX.

Nick enjoyed his tenure with the solutions provider and put in Nutanix for both large and small organizations around the country. After experiencing the capabilities, linear scaling and financial OpEx growth model, Nick decided to never work with 3-tier infrastructure again.

Ultimately, Nick decided to join Nutanix because of the opportunity to work with a world-class team on a world-class product. “It’s been pretty amazing!” he said. “Very humbling.  I have a lot of learning to do. Very cool to be going from customer to partner to vendor – it’s been a great journey. Great seeing what’s behind the curtain.”

Nick said his first few weeks at Nutanix have been phenomenal.  “I’m not a fan of obfuscation of failures,” he said.  “The culture at Nutanix is very open and honest.  If something doesn’t work, no one tries to cover it up.  People face it and fix it. It’s very refreshing to see that. The level of transparency across the board is just amazing.”
