Good evening.
We are evaluating some nutanix offerings from a local partner.
However I have some Microsoft related question and the partner is taking too long to respond.

1- Is there a version of Nutanix Acropolis/PRISM (4 node)that allows me to run unlimited Windows VMs without me needing to purchase a MS Windows DataCenter Core License from Microsoft?
2- Is there a PRISM/Acropolis Pro version that comes with a built in Windows Datacenter valid license?
Or
3-Do I need (as usual) to buy my Datacenter Core licenses to properly license my new Windows VMs?

Thanks

Hi @eperezpty

As you stated in option 3 - you need to purchase Microsoft license for those VMs as usual. The Nutanix software does not come with Microsoft Licenses. Hope this helps 👍
