I've planed to deploy Spunk on Nutanix on my Company. But i'm newbie in Nutanix, so I have some question about this:
1. Nutanix have hypervisor which I can use is ESXi, HyperV,KVM... so in my case, I will use Esxi and rehat to install Splunk. it's mean I have install Splunk on Redhat which is running on ESXi, is it right? Can i install Redhat directly to Nutanix server (1 node have 4 server?)
2. About the Cluster, Which is control the cluster on VM Host? Vmware vCenter or Nutanix Prism Central?
3. Nutanix have an OS is VM Controller? is it install on Vmware machine or is it a hypervisor?
Thanks for all reply to make my clear this stuff.

Answers to your questions
Nutanix is a solution in which enterprise storage is presented to hypervisors for running their VM’s/workloads, it is not a replacement of hypervisor, hence Redhat VM cannot run on Nutanix server, it has to one of the three hypervisors which Nutanix support i.e. ESXi, HyperV, KVM.
There are 2 types of clusters, one is cluster of ESXi hosts running on each server and that is managed by vCenter server, Nutanix cluster comprises of Controller VM’s (CVM) which is actually one controller VM per ESXi host and cluster of controller VM can be managed through Prism.
Nutanix CVM is a VM which runs on top of hypervisor, it is not a hypervisor itself.
Going by your questions, it seems to me that you have very little idea about Nutanix solutions. I am posting couple of links for your reference. I would request you to go through the same before you start working on a Nutanix platform
