One of the awesome things about community, is the sharing and learning that can happen. It's always encouraging to see others want to help solve problems they are not directly involved in, offer new idea's to old problems and look for new ways of doing things.
It also helps me connect people who may have similar interests, and can benefit from sharing their experiences.
I thought this would be a great place to share what you are working on, get introduced to the community and let us know how we can help. Add your comments below, and let's begin the conversation.
We have an EPIC community, let's connect and help each other power the next generation of enterprise computing.

Nutanix CE Lab - Testing Amazon CloudConnect
AWS Disaster Recovery using CloudConnect and async replication with 1G AWS DirectConnect.
Once we've finished that we're replacing our virtualised Oracle 12c VMs with new versions built according to the Nutanix best practice guides. The new versions are much quicker and much easier for us to maintain.
Good day .NEXT community,
I work for the Library at the University of Waterloo. We've been using Nutanix to handle our public facing VDI environment for a little over a year now and we just replaced our server virtualization infrastructure with Nutanix as well. Both of these environments are running VMware hypervisors.
Our next steps are two fold:
1. We plan to expand our Nutanix VDI environment to include staff workstations
2. We'll be moving the servers we just replaced with Nutanix to a partner datacentre and we'll load the Nutanix Community Edition onto them so we can play around with the Acropolis Hypervisor. Perhaps we'll even get to test How To Replicate Virtual Machines Between Different Hypervisors.

Crazy cool idea that my boss came up with. Currently it leverages ACL and requires cut-n-paste 2 times but I can update the data volumes in less than 5 mins. I want to leverage volume groups and volume group APIs in 4.6 to fully automate the process.
I'm drinking the Kool aid.
Once I'm done with that, it's on to standing up an Enterprise Microsoft SQL server offering on Nutanix, as well. Fun times!
In the process of setting up a CE Lab (on older servers HP DL380 G5/G6 and IBM X3550) and testing AHV. If anyone's got any tips on these setups it'd be greatly appreciated.. 🙂
We've just finished a PoC and purchased our first Nutanix block. So whilst waiting for that to be delivered, mostly I'm currently working on a bit of education whilst gathering some Xtribe points 😉
Having just completed a POC and moving away from traditional stacks of compute and storage, it would be wrong not to try the market leaders offerings:)
Awaiting delivery of purchased kit and onto a new chapter with hyperconverged.:)
