@Simon Reine Yes, you can deploy AOS 5.15.5 cluster evenwith 1 Gig uplinks.

However, for best cluster operation, it is recommended that Nutanix CVMs communicate by using 10GbE network uplinks connected to a 10GbE wire-speed top of rack switch. Using 1 gig uplinks for CVM traffic might degrade system performance. Hence, we recommend to use 10 gig uplinks.
