Good morning.

We are trying to size a new Cluster of Nutanix, we don't have a lot of money.

We have 2 datacenters connected through 1 GB ethernet.

We will have 25 virtual servers on the system.

How manu Nutanix servers we need to buy to get HA and Disaster Recovery in the other Datacenter?

It's possible to have 2 nodes in Datacenter A & 2 nodes in Datacenter B?

Thanks a lot for your help

The proper minimum configuration would be Quantity 3 nodes in each datacenter, for a total of 6.

Keep in mind, Nutanix has many different packages and configurations, both internally with our NX branded hardware, as well as through our OEM partners Dell (XC brand) and Lenovo (HX brand).

I work in Professional Services, but would be happy to take a look at your requirements to see which models and specifications will work best, then we could figure out what's most economical to try to fit into your budget.
