Is anyone using the Nutanix SRA in conjunction with Site Recovery Manager (SRM)? What are your experiences good, bad, or otherwise? We are currently using a vSphere replication server/appliance to replicate from one Nutanix cluster to another and it is working perfectly fine. I'm tempted to investigate Nutanix's SRA as a potential replacement, but as they say, "if it ain't broke, don't fix it". I would be interested to hear overall experiences as well as any viewpoints that are able to compare the Nutanix SRA against VMware's VRMS. Thanks.
Hello, In NOS Version 4.1.3 SyncRep for Hyper-V is release, which enables to have stretch cluster on Hyper-V as mentioned in release notes, Is there any configuration guide or document highlighting similar to Metro Availibility Best Practise document but for Hyper-V. Appreciate.. vF.P
hi all, there is this best practice [url=http://go.nutanix.com/metro-availability.html]http://go.nutanix.com/metro-availability.html[/url] on the page 24 it says if we want schedule a Planned Failover with vMotion Using vMotion to move virtual machines to the standby site will provide the highest uptimeduring planned failovers. Operationally, the use of vMotion will take more time comparedto a cold migration, as the virtual machine memory state will need to be transferred acrosssites. The planned failover process with vMotion is outlined in Figure 16. (see the following steeps) we want planned failorver on site A to B -1) Vmotion VMs from active to Standby site -2) shutdown VMs agaisnt standby containers site B -3 "disable metroavailability from the site active A -4 promote the Standby containers site B -5 power On VM sites B -6 renable the replication my question is I understand why we need to shutdown the VM (step 2) it's too bad we must diseable metro ava
Nutanix and Veeam Backup & Replication for vSphere: Best Practices Veeam and Nutanix together can help tackle data protection challenges in virtualized environments. This document makes recommendations for the optimization and scaling of Veeam Backup & Replication v7 with Nutanix for VMware vSphere. It shows the scalability of the joint solution and provides configuration information for both Veeam Backup & Replication and Virtual Computing Platform. Get it here
We are evaluating a Nutanix solution vs a normal 2012R2 HyperV with VNX SAN cluster. As we are a Microsoft shop, we are going with HyperV to reduce licenses. We have an HO and a DR site for Disaster Recovery. Our normal HyperV design involves having a HyperV cluster in each site with HyperV REPLICA to replicate data to the DR site. We have calculated this to give us an RPO of 30 seconds (HyperV Replica can even go to 5sec RPO) and an RTO of 15mins. Does Nutanix have any replication methodology that can give us a similar RPO? It looks like the RTO can be reached, but the RPO is at least 5mins and can't go below. Note that we have to use a HyperV engine and not VMWare. If this cannot be done with Nutanix replication, will Nutanix support a HyperV REPLICA between the 2 sites?
We have a single 3 node 1350 with starter licensing running VMware vSphere. Is it possible to configure replication to another non-NDFS datastore with any available built in tools or processes? What would be the best method that does not incur additional costs. In this sort of instance, would vSphere replication make sense backup to another datastore?
Hi , Does Nutanix has it's own backup software to take scheduled backup for production VM's created on ESXI hosts ? or I need to use third party backup solution like Veem or netbackup? if available , does it require base license or enterprise license please note the from prism in licensing part I saw the field Dataprotection and deduplication and others with status off,is this mean that these functions are not supported with the current license or just need to turn on? Regards
Is anyone using Veeam to backup their virtual environment on a Nutanix cluster? If so, how have you configured your backup proxy (how many, virtual or physical, 1 arm or 2 arm configuration, etc)? What are you using for a backup target? What kind of throughputs or processing rates are you seeing? I am running some test jobs, and a few of the jobs I have run identify the soure (Nutanix) as the bottleneck in the job. My backup proxy is a VM with a 2 arm configuration (1 vNIC in the production storage VLAN and 1 vNIC in the backup storage VLAN) running in Network Mode. I'm wondering if there are other modifications I can make to alleviate the source (Nutanix) from being the bottleneck in the jobs.
