The NutanixManagementShare container is a service container that is created by default. It is unusable. The 21Tb of space is the total cluster’s capacity and it is not reserved by that container. So, that space is usable by other containers. You can ignore that container safely. Based on your screenshot it has only 224MB of used space, so it isn’t taking almost anything.

thank you for your quick reply,

as I mentioned I have 3 nodes each with 21.58TB of storage and now on the storage overview dashboard I am only watching 43.36TB of usable space but it should have been 63 something TB right?

The usable space is most likely because of the Replication Factor (RF2).

What does it show if you go to Storage - Table - Storage Pool?

Also, what are the disk sizes in each node? You can see them in Hardware - Table - Disk.
