With Nutanix Xpress, I understand that the user can have up to 8 nodes. If in the future we expect to add more nodes, does an upgrade path to NX exist? If not, is Nutanix working to provide this option on future product releases?

Hi  -- Currently, no upgrade path exists from Xpress to NX. In the future, we can potentially look at a path to upgrade from SX to NX but it not on roadmap as of today. If you think scale is a requirement, purchasing NX is the correct choice.
