Hi everyone , i'm working in a new Nutanix deployment and i'm into a dilema.
I need to migrate a storage cluster into Nutanix solution. Stogate cluster size is 18tb and i have 7 3060-G5 with 800gbs sd and 2tb hdd. Since customer is used to storage cluster availability i'm thining to deploy a Microsoft cluster with 18tb volume group attach but i'm not sure how data locality works in that case.
Another option is to create 5 4tb DFS servers without replication since i don't have enough space to do that . Problem with this option is that if one server goes down i'll have an outage.
Since i'm writing i'm thinking in a 3rd option but is may be too complex
5 Microsoft cluster of 4tb using volume groups to share storage and join all those cluster into a signle DFS namespace.
What do you think ? Would be greate a second point of view
