We have many clusters in HCI . Now we want to locally segregate prod VM n NOn -prod VM in a cluster . how can we do ? Do we have concept of resource groups?

I got a couple of opinions from the team, hope they help:
1) The Best Practice for this scenario, for an Enterprise enviroment is to have a separate DEV (Test) Cluster.For those scenarios where you are unable to following an appropriate data center design, or common sense. One common way to do this in an vSphere enviroment would be to have two separate vSphere Clusters .Cluster A 3-Node with Production VMs, Cluster B 1-Node or more for Test/Dev VMs. In this scenario all 4+ nodes would be part of the same Nutanix Cluster. They have to be aware that vSphere HA may be configured to support 1 node failure in each vSphere Cluster, however, only 1 node failure would be survivable in the Nutanix Cluster.
2)One other solution is to create a rule in vCenter saying that all DEV/TEST VMs can run only in one or 2 particular hosts. So if those hosts become constraint, critical VMs will be migrated by DRS but dev/test VMs will remain there.
