Buy node, add node.

You will need some rackspace for the new node, including power and cooling capacity.

The new node will need two IP addresses, one for the hypervisor, and one for the CVM.

You will need to connect the node to a switch in the same way that the existing nodes are connected.

Alternatively if all of your existing nodes have room for more HDDs, then you can add some of those instead.

Thank you @Mark-AUSTRALIA 

I am looking for the software part, foundation and cluster expansion. Is it the same way like regular cluster expansion? As I couldn't find expansion option or procedure in Mine guide.

Expand the cluster in the normal way: Settings, Expand Cluster.

If you want to be extra careful, feel free to put the Nutanix Mine into Maintenance Mode via the GUI on the Mine foundation VM.
