Hi Gurus, 

Is NTNX CE will allow me to explore all NTNX technologies and features? 

I am shifting skills from VMW to NTNX so my question is if I have a physical server how many of CEs I can install as nested and learn NTNX and to which level I can

Please help me demystifying NTNX

Yep, CE is great to see and play with the Nutanix Prism (similar to vCenter in Nutanix world).

20GB minimum RAM is needed, but you’d be better with 32GB+

Great thank you! 

One more QQ; will I be able to experience the NTNX k8s using the CE as well or that will be different story?

Yes afaik you can.

I've seen similar posts with folks asking questions from a position of having it installed so fingers crossed.

The surge of interest in CE for investigations post the Broadcom chaos will help flesh out answers and ideas too.

I suspect I'll need to find some lab hardware to join the CE testing :)

Take care
