Nutanix Cloud Infrastructure
The Foundation for Your Hybrid Cloud
Hi, we're starting to look at using Spark on our Nutanix cluster. Not in a huge way but to run some ETL processes in parallel. I'm under pressure to install Hadoop, or at least HDFS on the cluster but the entire concept of adding a distributed, resilient "filesystem" (actually I think it's more an object store) on top of the one already provided by Nutanix seems somewhat off. Is there a recommended way of doing this? I know that containers are exported to ESXi via NFS. Would that be usable? Would that be able to leverage stargate to access from anywhere? All I really need is a globally available volume shared between all my nodes.
Hey you splunkers – with Splunk conf right around the corner, bet you are all jazzed up and ready for the show. Wanted to let you know that Nutanix is participating in our first ever Splunk Conf and we are sure excited to be here. We have some amazing giveaways and some exciting events planned for the week. We have demos at our booth #G10, a Breakout Session at 12:05 on Tuesday Sep 26, 2017 and a great Happy Hour on Wednesday Sep 27 from 6:00- 8:00 PM. First off, if you don’t know Nutanix- we are a company founded with a vision to simplify the datacenter. Making it super easy and efficient to run Splunk software with the performance and flexibility you need to solve your business challenges and focus on the app, not the infrastructure, is the continuation of that original vision. We are pronounced “Newt-Anix” and no we are not a health cereal and granola company, we are an amazing technology Enterprise Cloud Company. For those of you who know us, you probably already love all our g
Hi All, (Async DR, Nutanix-to-Nutanix) One of our customer are moving their DRC site to a new location, which will require IP addresses reconfiguration (to a totally different set of IPs) to their DRC Nutanix cluster. As there are already current PD snapshots in the DRC cluster (~5TB disk space), they wouldn't want to lost them upon IP addresses reconfiguration/DRC relocation. Kindly advise for any risk; and if there are risks to current PD snapshots' availability/reliability, kindly advise for any workaround.
Hi I found the KB below stating you can't virtualize domain controllers on Nutanix Hyper-V. [url=https://portal.nutanix.com/#/page/kbs/details?targetId=kA032000000TTGWCA4]https://portal.nutanix.com/#/page/kbs/details?targetId=kA032000000TTGWCA4[/url] Quote: "Why? Because Hyper-V wants to contact the AD server before it can power up any VM on Nutanix storage, and the AD server would not be available because the VM cannot be booted." I am of the understanding that this might have been a thing in up until 2008 R2, but this should not be a problem when running Hyper-V on 2012 R2. Anyone that could shed some light on the matter? Would like to call the support line, but that is not an option right now since it has nothing to do with our own nutanix nodes. EDIT: Solved. Found out it is due to the SMB3 share of the nutanix cluster, which requires authentication from the domain.
Post depoying Prism Element 5.5 we added Nutanix cluster which are running AOS 5.1.3 & AOS 5.1.2. But while launching element from central it shows error unable to access prism element. This happens with IE & Chrome [img]https://d1qy7qyune0vt1.cloudfront.net/nutanix-us/attachment/3900i23A2F35EC38600FF.png[/img]
Linux containers have been with us for a while, but companies like Docker have taken it to the mainstream in the last several years. For system administrators who manage virtual environments day to day, the introduction of containers from development teams may cause some anxiety.Should containers be treated differently, or do system administrator need to know when to deploy containers?Matt Hartley has recently published a good write up on it in Datamation.Article: Linux Containers vs Virtual MachinesOne of the first things to understand about containers vs. virtual machines is that containers are used for applications, and the virtual machines are designed for entire operating systems, and Matt mentions this in the article.You should try to keep containers to a single function.I also recently polled IT Pro's and asked if they have deployed containers yet and the vast majority said no. Are you a virtualization administrator who is exploring the idea of containers? Do you currently hav
I have been banging my head against the wall for the last week with the same issue described here: [url=https://serverfault.com/questions/843346/windows-2016-rras-installation-initialization-hangs]https://serverfault.com/questions/843346/windows-2016-rras-installation-initialization-hangs[/url] I was so excited to see someone had the same issue, however, their resolution won't work for me, unfortuantely. Or maybe it will, that's why I am here. Has anyone here had the same issue? Were you able to install different NIC drivers to resolve the issue? Or how did you resolve the issue?
Hi guys, I'm still digging to give corrects answer to my manager who is puting pros and cons for nutanix on the table. As I need to make a design without knowing exactly where he want to go, I'm making assomption on it. I understood that they wanted to put NSX on it VRA and vCloud SP. I've found a couple of recommandations / tips on NSX over NUTANIX but nothing that can be used on design part (more on implementation which is quite cool !) Do someone have integrated it on a 4.5 cluster ? do Nutanix plan to give us a technical note / any other cool stuff on NSX ? sheers,
Hi everyone, I'm struggling to find some documents about how ahv manages the virtual machine's ram. As far as I know, it doesn't share ram among vms....but, for example, what about overhead? Is it necessary to consider some overhead in addition to guest ram?Thank you all
Hi guys, Is there a way to change the min. snap retention count for local site AND remote site? We have a PD wich has two schedules. -every 60 mins - keep 3:3 -every 24 hours - keep 4:4 The problem now is that if for example the replication of the 60 min schedule fails because of network problems, or because the replication takes longer than normaly, the snapshots on the remote site expires. So let's say the disaster happens monday night at 1am. If the first admin arrives at 7am, every 60min snapshot will be expired and we can only work with the older 24hour based snaps. In the nutanix kb i can only find this article: [url=https://portal.nutanix.com/#/page/kbs/details?targetId=kA0600000008dn2CAA]https://portal.nutanix.com/#/page/kbs/details?targetId=kA0600000008dn2CAA[/url] which says: "...It's also important to note that the min-snaps value only affects local protection domains, not remote sites..."
Hello, we switch from NetApp to Nutanix and I want to know how could an AFS Backup look like. I have read that ABS is underneath AFS to deliver the data, hence no File Services Data resides inside the AFS VMs doing the client side. So a VM-only backup would not reach any data that we migrate from our Filers to AFS, right? We have Veeam B&R Enterprise Plus but doing File-level backups gains around 200KB/s. The VM-Backup on the other hand gets over 100MB/s so there is someone pulling on all brakes with file-level backup. Are there any other options to get the data in a timely manner? Even other backup software will be worth looking into as the file server is the most important business value. best regards Steffen 5x3060,2x3175 AOS 5.0.2, AFS 2.0.2
Hi I am an absolute noob so please be gentle to me. Can I know if Nutanix supports applications built that run on Red Hat Enterprise Linux? Basically, I have many applications that run on RHEL 7 that I am in the process of virtualizing using RHEV. So when I googled and saw this article below I was curious if Nutanix really supported RHEL and RHEV? [url=http://www.computerweekly.com/news/2240173672/Nutanix-supports-Red-Hat-KVM-in-upgraded-storage-stack-hardware-and-OS]http://www.computerweekly.com/news/2240173672/Nutanix-supports-Red-Hat-KVM-in-upgraded-storage-stack-hardware-and-OS[/url] Can someone confirm?
Hi, As per SAP Note 2428012 - SAP on Nutanix (Version 10 from Mar 15, 2017 in English), it states that " [b]HANA Support[/b] As of now, no Nutanix hardware is certified to run HANA workloads. However, if you wish to leverage a fully supported solution for HANA alongside Nutanix, only a Bridge to HANA solution is supported. For more information". Whats the latest new on this, is HANA supported now, if yes can you please let me know the SAP note or any source assosiated with it Regards Sreeram
