What is the recommendation as far as what type of file server to deploy? Standard or Distributed? I’ve read the Files description and what the differences are but I haven’t come across a definitive guide on use case. I’m struggling with the idea that distributed is best for user data only. Or at least that’s the impression I get. I also was curious about the optimization message, does that happen with both types of share or only distributed?
The other thing I wanted to ask was Planning tool in Prism Central. How or is it possible to play out an addition too or an increase to Nutanix Files. I see how you would add the Files VM or how would you add in the amount of storage?
Thanks in advance
