NTNX remains extremely well run, in our view, and is strategically positioned to continue to innovate their cloud OS platform further into bringing cloud economics and features to the on-prem/hybrid world. Further, NTNX reiterated its plan to achieve SUSTAINED FREE CASH FLOW by the end of C2017, removing a prime concern of investors.
