We currently have an 1 Block, 3-node cluster (NX-1065-G5) with approximately 50 VMs on it. It is approaching end of life, and we are replacing it with another 1 Block, 3-node unit (NX-1065N-G8). At end-state all of the VMs will be on the new hardware, and the old hardware will be powered down.
Would we be better to…
- Build the new unit as a brand new cluster, and move all the VMs to it using Nutanix Move.
- Expand the existing cluster by adding the new hardware to it, and then remove the old hardware from the cluster.
Has anyone gone through either of these processes?
Thank you for your suggestions.
