To utilise Proactive HA functionality, a hardware provider plugin needs to be imported into vCentre. Is there a release date for a Nutanix plugin for Proactive HA?

Historically we have avoided creating any plugins for vCenter clients and invested in making Prism the best user experience. We cannot comment publicly if there would ever be a plugin released do support this feature.

We do several layers of proactive support to mask these failures within the platform that are hypervisor agnostic. This allows failure handling and early identification of possible issues without admin interaction or affects to VMs. This is done with SSD/HDD drive pre-failures, degraded node identification and most failure handling without needing to move VMs.
