New Nutanix nodes for Horizon View 7 environment


Badge +1
I am ready to proceed with a new Nutanix cluster consist of 4 nodes.
I am a bit confused on containers , NFS, and VMFS.

To run an effective View 7 environment on this new cluster,
1. Should I Create Containers and present them to ESXi ? (This will be NFS)
2. Should I create ISCSI Volumes? is that supported?
3. Any additional suggestions?

We have been running a solidview environment for a few years in a traditional ESXi hosts with linked clones and persistent and non persistent Virtal desktops.

Thnak you for any help in advanced.

1. Should I Create Containers and present them to ESXi ? (This will be NFS) - Yes.
2. Should I create ISCSI Volumes? is that supported? - If you are expecting to assign an iScsi volume for ESXi, then "NO". Nutanix ABS is for providing block via iSCSI for UVMs.
3. Any additional suggestions? - Please refer "http://nutanixbible.com/" for more details on this.
