Migrate Hyper-V to Nutanix AHV

With many customers now choosing to purchase their Nutanix cluster and go with the purpose built AHV hyper-visor at no extra cost I am tasked with putting together migration plans from ESXi , Hyper-V etc..  We have a number of options, depending if the customer can experience downtime or not and if there are too many costs for live migration.

In this blog I want to walk you through how easy Nutanix have made this process with improved image service available in 5.03.

When I asked this question this week if I could complete this task there was various information out there and not all of it was positive, some complex workarounds seemed to be workable. I’m glad to report I completed several migrations this week and created a simplified plan for the customer, which I thought I would share in a blog.
