Question

Oracle + Dual hypervisors in 1 Cluster


Badge +7
Hey Guys,

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!

Hi

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).

Hi,

Has the stance on this changed? I have have a duplicate issue, which may only be solvable by creating isolation for vMotion, separate interfaces, dedicated containers and such.

Kind regards,
