Hi All
I am new to Nutanix and coming from a VMware environment I confused. I have a 3 Dell XC Cluster and I access the whole thing by a cluste IP address which puts me in Prism - the Prism says I have not registered with Prism Central - If only have one cluster do I need Prism Central, what benefit does Central give me?

Thanks

@Eric-The_Viking , Prism Central (PC) not only enables you to manage multiple clusters, but also provides the access to other Nutanix products, e.g. Prism Pro, Flow, Calm.

Even you only have a single cluster, those products can offer you additional values, such as smart IT operations, micro-segmentation, automated provisioning of the applications, etc.

Thanks Harryhy, I am starting to understand the intricacies of Nutanix now, although I have a long way to go before I get to the level of Nutanix engineers, they are brilliant.

Have a splendid day.
