Usable Capacity Comparison PART 2 – Nutanix ADSF vs VMware vSAN – CloudXC

In Part 1 of Usable Capacity Comparison between vSAN/VxRAIL and Nutanix, we’ve learned Nutanix provides more usable Capacity along with greater capacity efficiency, flexibility, resiliency, and performance when using Deduplication & Compression as well as Erasure Coding.

I also asked the question Is there a way to improve usable capacity for vSAN and provided four examples (below).

1) Use a single disk group so only one SSD’s worth of capacity is “lost” to cache

2) Use more SSDs and/or higher capacity SSDs per disk group

3) Use Compression / Deduplication

4) Use Erasure Coding / RAID5 or 6.

Sickness Monitoring is the Open Door That Video Surveillance Has Been Waiting For — Daniel Miessler

I’ve thought for a long time that public video feed monitoring would become ubiquitous. My basis for this was looking at humans ultimately desire, not at the tech itself. When I hear crazy long-term predictions I always think two things: either the prediction is going to be obvious, or it’s going to be wrong. I…
