Nutanix: Why We Drink Our Own Champagne

When I joined Nutanix 8 months ago, one of my first objectives was to audit the sprawl of applications and infrastructure typically found in a fast-growing startup, and to standardize and streamline IT operations around the globe. Naturally, being in the infrastructure business, it made a lot of sense to “eat our own dog food” — move all on-prem and hybrid workloads to Nutanix — and be the first customer of everything that comes out of engineering into production.
