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.

Community Manager,

Justin here.. we have one of the largest Nutanix deployments which consists of dozens of clusters, hundreds of nodes and thousands of VMs. Happy to answer any real-world type questions.

Right now we are busy prepping for 4.1.2 to 4.5 upgrade and testing AHV!

Hi everyone!
We'll be migrating our datacenter to a colo using Nutanix later this year. As I'm brand new to Nutanix the first step for me will be quickly learning as much as possible. After perusing some of the other discussions it looks like jjdurrant had some excellent recommendations to get started:
- Nutanix Bible
- nu.School YouTube Channel
- longwhiteclouds
- Self Paced Study (Once I get access)
- NEXT community, of course!
The goal is to hit the ground running. I look forward to learning from you, and one day returning the favor!
 

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.  

 
I'm already using AHV hyervisor. Feeling free from unwanted downtime. Placed 10 more Blocks ordered to replace entrie IT infrastructure to Nutanix
Going to implement a 3 node CE cluster for demo and test...But only got 2x100GB SSD's for each node, and some spinning disks..

Hello to all.

Like many others here, I am trying to get my feet wet with Nutanix CE.  In my case, this is my attempt at learning about the technology in preparation for an actual production deployment coming up soon at my place of work.

I intend to use two DELL PCs with SSD/HDD combo.  Each has a quad-core i7 and 16GB RAM.

Looking forward to learning and maybe eventually even pursue a certification. 

Hello everyone, discovering Nutanix world. As solution architect I have to develop the better offer for our customers, and Nutanix have such of very interesting features that could easily be intagrated.

I hope this is just the beginning of a long adventure.

Planning to deploy a new home lab to evaluate Nutanix Files.

Good luck, ! We completed our upgrade last week and it went smooth - no issues. Here's hoping you guys are as lucky.

Trying to get Nutanix CE for my 4-node home lab (having some experience with Nutanix already :) )

Hi All

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.:)

🙂

Playing with the Nutanix CE at home. About 60% into migrating VMs from the 3 tier infrastructure to Nutanix NX1175s. Getting quotes to buy one more node.

I'm working on migrating our existing workload from VMware to AHV. The migration process is actually pretty painless, and with the exception of a couple of 'missing features', I think it's going to work out great!
