I’m trying to find out if anyone has tried or is running SAS Grid on Nutanix?
We have a SAS consultant working with us but they have no experience of running SAS on a Nutanix cluster.
Any information would be gratefully received 😃

I've been part of running a proof of concept SAS-grid cluster on Nutanix. The results were good. It definitely helped having more than one vdisk on each of the VMs. I would speak to your local Nutnanix rep, there are internal resources that could help.

Due to the fact we couldn’t get a validated deployment from Nutanix and no support from the third party at the time of deployment. We ended up running SAS Grid on a Physical 3 tier cluster sadly. 

I think things have now changed. Please see the link below
