Hay, now i planning to migrate from esxi to AOS, form vsphere to AHV. That’s awesome !


Moving to Nutanix from our old legacy enviorment.


Our major refresh projects are on hold due to the pandemic but we are working on implementing Beam for it’s cloud cost control\optimization features. Controlling cost is more important now then ever.

Building a second 4 node Nutanix Cluster in a secondary data centre for DR fail-over in the event DC1 is lost.

Configuring key servers to be replicated to this 2nd DC so that we can bring up key services immediately.


After a year away, I am starting over with a new company with Nutanix.  This time on HPE hardware.

Spec’d and ordered, received and configured the first cluster and working on the next two now.  Three Datacenters will work as primary Prod, Primary Dev/Test and DR.  Can’t wait to get replicating.  


Benjamin Crill here.  Been involved with Nutanix now for a few years, previously on the partner side.  Not officially a customer (yet!) but use CE for my home lab.  Love what Nutanix brings and learning more about it.

@aluciani thank you for the invitation.

I am working with Nutanix CE from the end of April.  I am Network Engineer focusing on Ethernet switches, and virtual network testbed/devices such as Cisco VIRL, EVE-NG and Aruba CX OVA (virtual ArubaOS-CX).

Due to COVID-19, I have chance to run Nutanix CE (2019.11.22-stable) at home, on 3 x ThinkPad W520 which are powered by Intel Core i7-2760QM and 2820QM.  My goals are to get better place to run virtual machines than VMware ESXi, and reliable storage.  Here are my challenges.

  1. Prevent overheat or burn up of ThinkPads - I DON’T RECOMMEND TO USE LAPTOPS for Nutanix CE!
  2. 10GbE or 5GbE or 2.5GbE NICs, because built-in 1GbE NIC seems be overloaded
  3. EVE-NG (Network Simulation Testbed powered by KVM) does not work as expected

Regarding 1 and 2, I added Shuttle Cube PC as 4th node (Core i5-9400T, 64GB RAM, NVMe SSD + HDD, Intel I211 NIC), which VMware ESXi was installed.  It looks fine and CVM does PCIe pass-through for NVMe SSD.

I would like to replace 1GbE NIC with 10/5/2.5GbE(Aquantia AQC107) and/or 2.5GbE (Realtek RTL8125).  However this seems be difficult as I have to add drivers for these NICs, AQC107 and RTL8125 are cheap but not stable than Intel 10GbE NICs.  And suppose if these NICs and drivers work with Nutanix CE, I am not sure I can keep updating these drivers when CE is upgraded.

Regarding 3, I guess “Nested Virtualization” on AHV is not supported.  But I am not sure.  Sorry.


I am working on the Nutanix infrastructure (as a VDI solution). We have one cluster with 8 nodes running AHV.  Since there is a new version of the upgradeable components periodically, I want to know when I should upgrade each component accordingly? and what is the optimal sequence for the components upgrading ? 

Hi All,

I’m new at my work but we are one Nutanix (Supermicro) multiple clusters running Hyper-V 2016. Lots of challenges but looking forward to learning more in these forums.

@aluciani Thanks for the invitation here!

Hello everyone!

My name is David, new user of Nutanix since February, 2020. I’m just an enthusiast who had accepted the challenge of managing a small Nutanix 3 Node Cluster for a test/dev environment here at the company.

I come from the world of Networking (since my role is Network Architect) and had some experience on VMWare, however, never been so deep understanding compute, virtualization and storage as a whole until now.

Just eager to keep testing this Nutanix box and learning from you all here at the community!


We are evaluating ERA.


Updated dev and prod clusters to PC 5.17 and PE 5.15.1

Planning to upgrade LCM version to 2.3.1

Hi all! Anwar, NUG champion of the Northern VA (DMV chapter). We have a 6-node cluster currently running ESXi 6.7. We completed a firmware upgrade to our plexxi switches within the Nutanix cluster to the latest, greatest. This is my 2nd Nutanix environment that I’ve managed and supported. We have had no issues to date!

Migrating from one nutanix cluster to other site. 

Upgrading to AOS 5.17 and setting up hybrid cloud with AWS.

We are building a new backup control center using Nutanix & AHV.

I am working on migrating more workloads off our older infrastructure onto our Nutanix Cluster. 


Investigating other hyperconvergence solutions not VMware. This is an DC arquitect in continious looking for new and more efficient DC solutions….

Testing VDI in our environment

Hi All, currently I’m working on building a solid pipeline with a lot of Nutanix deals :sunglasses:

DR Planning

Hello! Joining the Nutanix community to learn more about the product. I have a home lab currently running VMWARE. I am currently giving KVM a try as well as Nutanix. 

Deciding what Nutanix hardware to purchase to replace current Nutanix (which will be used as DR).

New joiner , 

Greetings to all ! Hope everyone is doing fine.  I am newly joined member of Nutanix Community . Working with IT service company for infrastructure support . Technologies worked upon are VMware/VXRail/Nutanix, Windows , Powershell etc . 


Here to explore and learn more about nutanix . 


Thanks & Regards,
