Heterogeneous Cluster Support – Nutanix vs VMware vSAN – CloudXC

In this part, we cover heterogeneous cluster support as this is critical to a HCI platforms ability to scale and ensure ever changing customer requirements are being met/exceeded.

Hardware capacity/performance continues to advance at a great pace, if customers are forced to use uniform (homogeneous) clusters it will likely result in a higher TCO and slower ROI. That’s bad enough but it also means customers will not get to take advantage of the performance and density advantages of newer hardware without creating silos which leads to more inefficiency.

After all we don’t want to be in the same position where we need to “rip and replace” hardware like in the old SAN era.

Replacing the Nutanix Witness VM on an existing Metro Availability Protection Domain — Multi-Cloud Life

Last week, I had to change an existing Metro Availability Protection Domain between 2 Nutanix Sites. The change was to replace the existing Witness VM with a new one to be deployed on another VMware ESXi host. 33 more words
