We have a requirement where the customer has requested 5 nodes of Nutanix, having 20TB usable SSD in RAID 1 and 30TB HDD (i.e. in this ratio 40:60). The cluster will have RF3. Unfortunately this spec cannot be configured with NX and other appliances.
My question is whether it will work on a normal rack server (that supports large SSD and Xeon Scalable processors) e.g. Dell, Lenovo... where we put storage as follows: 3.84TB SSD x8 + 2TB HDD x12. According to http://designbrewz.com/ this will allow to meet the above space requirement.
Can anyone confirm whether this is a workable solution?
