In this series 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. We’ve also learned Nutanix provides far easier and superior storage scalability … Continue reading →

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.
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

In the first post in this series I compared the actual Usable Capacity between Nutanix ADSF vs VMware vSAN on the same hardware. We saw approximately 30-40% more usable capacity delivered by Nutanix. Next we compared Deduplication & Compression technologies … Continue reading →
