Wanted ask the community for some feedback on the topic of SQL Server 2008/R2 End of Support. My fellow Nutanix Solutions team members [user=48543]gregwhite[/user] [user=74942]Chris Paap[/user], myself and others were discussing about SQL Server 2008/R2 End of Support and how that would impact IT? Can you help us by sharing your thoughts, actions, tools around DB/app upgrades, migration etc related to SQL Server 2008/R2? You can take the survey here: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/VJ2NWXS
Hi all, I have a customer running two DCs, using veaam to replicate VMs between sites. They are renewing the infrastructure at Site 1 and are looking to adopt EMC storage for native (recoverpoint) host aware SAN to SAN replication. Until they update the infrastructure running on site 2 they will need to continue using Veaam in the interim. I'd like to recommend they take a look at Nutanix however first need assurances that they can continue using Veaam to replicate between ESX on Nutanix & ESX on legacy. The idea would be to then go full Nutanix at both sites (once site 2 is refreshed), swap out to AHV and live the cross site replication dream :) Advice appreciated! Thanks Patrick
Xi Epoch generates live application maps to provide instantaneous visibility into your application health without any code instrumentation. Epoch provides visibility into the interactions between components in distributed architectures, without dependency on specific language or framework implementation. As a result, operations team can quickly ensure reliability and availability of any application in any cloud environment. The picture below is showing two different Kubernetes Clusters, Docker Enterprise and Nutanix Karbon. The collectors are deployed as daemon sets so they can be deployed to any Kubernetes cluster to start monitoring your applications. Epoch collectors can be run in both containerized as well as non-containerized environments. Only one collector is needed per host (VM or bare metal OS).

Hi, I just added a new storage disk onto a VM and copied data onto it then realize we'd rather just expand the current one so I deleted the new disk and when I go to expand the current disk it is showing that I have no more space to use to expand. Where is the space going after I delete disks? Thanks,
Using near sync replication in AOS 5.5 means that normal snapshots on VMs cannot be initiated by external backup tools like comtrade, rubrik This is a bit of a showstopper. If we need an RPO of 15 minutes on AHV, we have to use nearsync - but then we can't backup VMs off the cluster When will Nutanix resolve this rather major downside?
Is it possible to implement throttling at a per VM level? The thoughts/scenario behind the question: We have had on a couple occasions where we found a VM (different in each occasion) that was running away with storage controller IOPs. Of course the goal is to get the actual issue resolved for the offending VM, but we would like to be able to implement throttling to be able to assure other VMs in that cluster don't suffer when this does occur. Disk I/O has been the scenario so far, but could also see the need to throttle CPU, memory, and/or NIC throughput at some point.
Hello community, it is possible Nutanix remote snapshots to a remote site and additional snapshot to a 3rd remote site? Environment: Small ROBO Cluster ROBO Backup Node (1155S) Central Backup Target Small Robo Cluster > Remote Snapshot to ROBO Backup Node (1155S) > Remote Snapshot to Central Backup target.
Does anyone know of any official documentation on the best way to perform a migration from Hyper-V 2016 on Nutanix to a new AHV cluster (not an in place migration)? Or any good guides on doing this? It is going from Hyper-V 2016 to AHV but 2012 would be helpful. I have found a few articles but they are either quite old or not very well written.

Hello, I have turned on Windows Dedup for some of my file servers that reside on AHV, however the storage reduction is not reflected on Prism. Any thoughts as to why? I wish I could run the Capacity Dedup from AHV however the last time that I turned it on I received the following alert: Do not replicate protection domain XXXXXXX comprising entities from the storage container that have deduplication enabled to a single node remote site XXXXXXX. (XXX denote omitted field)
Hi All, Hope you are doing well. I have question regarding the storage usage and space reclaimation in VMWare 6.5 with Nutanix clusters. This question is more into VMware instead of Nutanix, thought of checking here. Just to give a overview we have Nutanix nodes and we have got VMWare 6.x installed on the nodes, a single storage pool and multiple containers. I got a RHEL VM migrated from the old environment and it got 4 disks (10GB, 20 GB, 500GB & 5 GB), all the 4 disks are in the same DS and thin provisioned. No deduplication & compression enabled on those. Now when I access the VMware web console and look for the vmdk files by browsing the files in the DS, I can see a different capacity from the actual usage compared at the server level. When I see the same VM via PRISM and I cannot see the 4 disks assigned to it. It shows only 1 disk with some 160 MB used out of 20 GB and none other than that. Could you please help me to understand why its not showing the disks in the P
When I load the SSR portal through the desktop shortcut, or by browsing to locahost:5000 within a second or two the browser chokes and becomes unresponsive. I thought it may be related to the background animation, does anyone experience this also? Is there a way to disable the animation in the SSR portal page? Mant thanks, Daniel
This is the first of a three-part blog post on deploying monitoring addons with Nutanix Karbon. Nutanix Karbon is a curated turnkey offering that provides simplified provisioning and operations of Kubernetes clusters. Kubernetes is an open-source container orchestration system for deploying and managing container-based applications. Karbon was released in Tech-Preview after the launch of AOS 5.9 and Prism Central 5.9 in October 2018. We’ve received several queries from our customers, partners and peers alike who value the simplicity that we bring to the table for Kubernetes, but they find it hard to understand how the cluster is behaving and what is going on under the covers. Enter [url=https://prometheus.io./]Prometheus[/url] (also known as Prom or P8s). Prometheus is an open-source monitoring tool that was built by a team at SoundCloud and it was inspired by Google’s [i]Borgmon[/i], it was designed from day one for the Kubernetes model of assigning and managing units
