Xi Cloud Services DR

Hello - 

 

Does the on-premise environment need to be running AHV for DR to Xi Cloud?  We're currently running ESXi.  

 

Thanks!

Hello,

 

You should expect that you could be running either ESXi or AHV on premises and replicating to Xi cloud service. For more detailed information and timing discussing with your account team under NDA will provide more details.

Follow up to Ricky's question.  When you configure XI what Cloud vendor do you replicate too?

The first cloud DC's that you can replicate to will be Nutanix ones that will be in two regions with 2 availability zones each. Google GCP will follow next as an option opening up more regions.

 

There will likely be other provider options that become available over time.

Does the Xi cloud only charge a fee when VMs are running, or is there also a storage cost?

Hello,

 

Since Xi is still in development and not GA yet these details are not all finalized and public yet. If you need guidance sooner, please work with your account team to engage product management for private discussions.
