Single Node Replication Target

Hi,

With the recent announcement of 5.0, is the single node replication target limited to only be a target for backups ?

 

ie. Can it run VM's in a pinch so a site can "Limp" along in the high unlikely event that a cluster is offline ?

 

Thanks in Advance,

G

It's for replication targets only.  If you want to be able to run VM's then you would need a second cluster of hosts.

Re: Single Node Replication Target

Hey I have doubts regarding a single node replication target 

1.Can the single node replication target be a Nutanix CE edition? 

2.How is the space requirements calculated ? are the VM backups compressed? 

3.Can we restore the backups to a Nutanix CE edition?
