I am an absolute noob so please be gentle to me.
Can I know if Nutanix supports applications built that run on Red Hat Enterprise Linux?
Basically, I have many applications that run on RHEL 7 that I am in the process of virtualizing using RHEV.
So when I googled and saw this article below I was curious if Nutanix really supported RHEL and RHEV?
Can someone confirm?

Virtual servers running RHEL7 certainly can run on Nutanix... It depends of course of the hypervisor you want to install on the Nutanix nodes...
When running VMware or AHV, RHEL7 is supported... I think it is also supported by Microsoft on Hyper-V, but reading your question, I cannot imagine, you are going to run Hyper-V on a Nutanix platform.
i am sure it will work but the true question is :
is it supported Redhat on AHV ?
RHEL 5.10, 5.11, 6.3, 6.4, 6.5, 6.6, 6.7, 6.8, 7.0, 7.1, 7.2
You can see the most up to date list in our online documentation, here: https://portal.nutanix.com/#/page/docs/details?targetId=AMF-Guide-AOS-v50:vmm-vm-driver-types-r.html
I would urge you strongly to bring these concerns up to your Red Hat account team and have an open discussion with both them, and your Nutanix account team. We're happy to help and at the end of the day, we want our joint customers to be successful, so let's keep the converation going
lmagallon sorry again for missing this from a while back. The list / link above is what we've tested, and explictly support on our platform.
Other configs like RHEL 6.9 mentioned above will very likely work, we just haven't done the testing on it.
All this is very troublesome as the individual app owners feel it is not a solid solution. As infrastructure owners, we know different. The only alternative is to use an alternate hypervisor or a second hypervisor on separate hardware which of courese involves additional costs for hardware and hypervisor.
Is Nutanix actively working with RedHat and Oracle to obtain this certification by them?
