My Home Lab


build a single NUC Node using the following spec
► (1) Intel NUC Kit NUC6i7KYK Mini PC
► (1) Transcend 32GB JetFlash 710 USB 3.1/3.0 Flash Drive
► (2) Sandisk X400 Solid State Drive - Internal (SD8SN8U-512G-1122)
► (1) Crucial 32GB Kit (16GBx2) DDR4 2133 MT/s (PC4-17000) SODIMM 260-Pin Memory - CT2K16G4SFD8213

NOTE: Nutanix CE run on 1, 3 or 4 Node Configurations. I specifically selected a (3) Node configuration in my home lab since this is also the minimum config for our Nutanix Customers in the real world.

The hardware install is very easy, just flip the NUC over, loosen 4 screws at each corner, remove the bottom cover and insert memory and the SSD drives.

Hi @Vik_ram

You are likely looking at just under $1000 dollars. I get my parts from Amazon. Best to look around tho - Cheers
