Article | March 21, 2020

We, the Team Sherlock @ Nutanix, wrapped up year 2019 with amazing line up of platform features for developers and infrastructure admnistrators. Read more about them in my last blog post, titled Xi IoT : Another year in retrospect. Since then we have added many more exciting features that I want to share with you in this new blog post. Xi IoT’s journey started at the Edge with a purpose built platform to manage Infrastructure and Apps at scale but soon this versatile Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) Stack found its ways into private and public clouds.
