Overview

Nutanix Clusters GovCloud enables United States government customers to run a secure Nutanix cluster on AWS GovCloud in adherence with the US government compliance regimes.

Nutanix Clusters GovCloud runs as a separate instance from the Nutanix Clusters commercial instance. To create a Nutanix cluster on AWS GovCloud, set up your AWS GovCloud account similar to an AWS commercial account. After you set up your AWS GovCloud account and complete the required documentation, the GovCloud Nutanix Operations team provides you access to the Nutanix Clusters GovCloud instance. You can then proceed to create a Nutanix cluster on AWS GovCloud as you would do on a commercial instance. Even though Nutanix Clusters GovCloud runs as a separate instance from the commercial instance, all features and workflows are identical to the commercial instance of Nutanix Clusters. See Nutanix Clusters On AWS Deployment and User Guide for more information.
