I have a question:
Let's say a customer needs to deploy some Oracle databases. As wel all know, licensing is expensive..
In this scenario they have a 11 node cluster. Would it be possible to have 2 nodes run on AHV with oracle whilst the remaining 9 nodes run on ESXI?(They only need 2 nodes hence they don't want to use a third node & create another cluster + They would like to benefit from erase coding.) This would cut the Oracle costs by a huge amount.
Or are there any other solutions for this?
Thanks in advance!

I recently had a discussion with Nutanix reps regarding pretty much the same question and was told multiple hypervisors in the same cluster are not supported (except for storage only nodes).
