We recently converted one of our environments to AHV/Acropolis from ESX/VCenter.
All is well and runs just fine.
One of the caveats is, we have a tertiary machine we use in “disaster” type scenarios and with this machine we would use our backup solution to “backup” a VM to and run with VMWare Workstation.
As I understand it, Nutanix does not offer a “Workstation” type solution, so I am reaching out to hopefully receive some feedback on what a “new” solution would entail.
Could I build a small PC and run Community edition on it?
Can communtiy edition run on say an i9/32gb RAM/1TB ssd or does it need N+1 to function?
This way I could point my backup solution to the new cluster or have my cluster be aware of a NAS solution and ingest the AHV VM as needed in these type scenarios.
Any feedback will help me in the endeavor!
