Nutanix Cloud Infrastructure
The Foundation for Your Hybrid Cloud
I'm looking into backing up our Nutanix Acropolis cluster to either Azure or AWS. What I'm curious about are the actual costs once you factor in not just their basic storage rate, but Puts and data writes and everything that happens during a backup and restore (rare as those would be). We have around 5 TB total with all our VMs, with the daily snapshots averaging around 40GB in changed data. We would want to retain maybe a month's worth of backups with dailies and weeklies. Is this enough data to do a decent estimate, or is it one of those 'Try and see' scenarios? I'd be interested in anybody else that's utilizaing it as a remote backup site and what kinds of costs they're seeing. Thanks! Clint
I am migrating from ESX 6.0 to AHV 5.1.2I have successfully mounted the container from VMware and migrated a disk. When trying to start the image from the vmdk file in Prism Console than I get the following error: Booting from Hard Disk... in the boot dos screen. Regards, Onder Avcu
Does anyone have thoughts on how backup and recovery will work with the Acropolis hypervisor? Our company is definitely interested in moving in this direction, but the simplicity of Veeam B&R has been great, and I do not want to move away from that unless there is a solution that provides all of veeams features.
Hi, It’s possible to manually adjust the file /var/nutanix/etc/kubernetes/manifests/kube-apiserver.yaml and apply this update into the kubernetes cluster? I tried to adjust and after run: sudo systemctl daemon-reload && sudo systemctl restart kubelet-master But when I describe the kube-api pod I see that the adjusts are not applied. Anibal
I have a 8 nodes nutanix with vSphere 7 deployed. I’ve created 2 new storage container with compression enabled and map to the nodes. I test to copy the file that i uploaded to the default container to the new storage container presented as NFS datastore...it was very slow. 5GB took 2hrs. Then i tried storage vmotion of a VM reside on the new datastore to another new datastore. A 10GB VM took 20 minutes. If storage vmotion from the default container to new datastore, it fails.

Hello all, I'm wondering if there is anyone out there using Nutanix with KVM as a hypervisor, and if so, what kind of management do you use for daily VM related admin jobs? - virsh/virt-manager ? - RHEV/virto ? - OpenStack on top? - other "cloud solution"? - custom tools/scripts ? Please share :) I'm quite curious about official / eventual cross-vendor support and/or "show-stoppers" you might have experienced or enlightenments you might have had.. [i]P.S..: *psssst*...rumours have it, that Nutanix themselves are developing some "management tool" for KVM..anyone knows more?[/i]
Hello friends, I am new here nice to meet you and I hope you can help me.I am working with two Scenarios in my client. One we have Nutanix on its Linux KVM-based hypervisor and the other we have common x86 servers running VMware.The objetive is compare both solutions and decide what's best. (we want Nutanix to the best of course!)The application running on both of them is a jBOSS system, on 3 virtual machines. (application, DB and one apache front end.)I created a recording test using jmeter, where the user makes a lot of steps in the web interface (for instance, search for a specific person, click on the menu, etc). The test runs fine on the x86 server and VMware, but on the Nutanix, after 150 users, I always get: Started: 0 Finished: 0. And also the CPU Usage is higher than the other scenario. Almost the double.I added more CPU and RAM to the virtual machine, but it didn't work. I am also running on non-GUI mode, removed the listeners, added more memory to the "MaxNewSize", but nothi
Does AHV supports MSCS ? I am aware about two node windows cluster with witness VM mentioned in below : [url=https://portal.nutanix.com/#/page/docs/details?targetId=Web-Console-Guide-Prism-v58:wc-cluster-two-node-c.html]https://portal.nutanix.com/#/page/docs/details?targetId=Web-Console-Guide-Prism-v58:wc-cluster-two-node-c.htm[/url]l But just want to confirm if it supports MSCS with shared storage including quorum?
Just wanted to share how we are renewing the kubeconfig from the command line. Background: In our organization it was considered a bit clumsy to download the kubeconfig from the Karbon UI. We love the command line and wanted a quick’n’easy way to renew the authentication token. The solution: We created a docker image that contains the “karbonctl” binary and a wrapper script. The Dockerfile was also included into our CI/CD pipeline to automate the image creation. The wrapper script does two things: karbonctl login --pc-ip prism.nightingale.nu --pc-username “$1” karbonctl cluster kubeconfig --cluster-name “$2” >”$3” The commands that the end user run: docker run --rm -it -v “$(pwd)”:/tmp docker.registry.local/karbonctl:latest <login> mycluster /tmp/karbon.cfg export KUBECONFIG=”$(pwd)/karbon.cfg”
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,
We are moving away from VMware over to Acropolis and I was wondering what others have been using to backup their VMs under Acropolis, 3rd party wise? Under VMware, we had been using Veeam, but this is no longer a choice.Any comments/suggestions would be helpful.
Ok, yesterday one of our many Nutanix clusters was upgraded to 5.15 LTS and I started to create a new Windows Server 2016 template using UEFI-configuration. Now I am stuck at display resolution of 1280x1024 and change is not possible, because it is grayed out. Nutanix Guest Tools from 5.15 LTS and VirtIO 1.1.5 are installed. Is this bug known and does there exist a work-around? What about 5.16 STS? Is it fixed there? Thanks for any reply. Regards, Didi7
Hi,I am trying to move a Windows Server 2012 R2 VM from Xenserver to AHV. With reference to this article: AHV | Migrating a Windows VM from XenServer to AHV everything is working great except when I am at the last step. When I turn on the VM in AHV, I am getting a boot device not found error and windows will not boot up.Windows will start with a windows icon throws the error and restarts, then goes into disk repair, reboots and same error and goes into the troubleshooting menu and when I am restart the VM in AHV it again and always goes into the boot disk inaccessible error.I made sure all the Xen components are already uninstalled from the vm and Nutanix VirtIO drivers are also installed. Tried with loading the image as scsi and IDE, but still going into the same error. Also tried booting up in safe mode, tried disk repair, etc. but no luck.Please help if someone has a solution.PS: I am migrating Windows Server 2012 R2 from XenServer to Nutanix AHV.
Trying the veeam AHV appliance, i had a crash whilst taking a backup now am left with orphaned snapshots on a PAID ACCOUNT, and nutanix sends the ball to veeam back to nutanix, so here i am Protection Domain DP-QC-3 has 3 aged third-party backup snapshot(s) and may unnecessarily consume storage space in the cluster. i have a multitude of these and want to manually remove those snapshots, is there a process for this ?
Hi, Someone know if we can enable PodPreset on the Karbon? (https://kubernetes.io/docs/concepts/workloads/pods/podpreset/#enable-pod-preset) Basically my cluster are under a Proxy and I can’t deploy application under Pod because they need to access the internet, with the PodPreset I can configure the proxy information like this https://docs.gitlab.com/ee/topics/autodevops/index.html#installing-helm-behind-a-proxy
Hi Does anyone having experience or recommendation for tuning Postgresql Server Workload on Nutanix? We followed the Nutanix SQL Server Best Practices and Micheal Webster's Recommandations for vDisk and LVM layout at: [url=http://longwhiteclouds.com/2014/11/27/performance-testing-mysql-and-postgresql-with-hammerdb-and-pgbench/]http://longwhiteclouds.com/2014/11/27/performance-testing-mysql-and-postgresql-with-hammerdb-and-pgbench/[/url] Unfortunately, the Performance does not meet our expactation compared to our old PostgreSQL server running on a NetApp Filer. Out Setup: 3 Nodes Nutanix Cluster NX-6035-G4 with 1200 GB SSD, NOS 4.6.11 vSphere 6
