For a while now I’ve been working on building new X-ray scenarios for both internal engineering/QA and for customers to quickly/easily and repeatably test more granular functionality of Nutanix.
The HCI Platform Availability, Resiliency and Integrity series covers how the test functions on both Nutanix AOS and VMware vSAN and highlights that AOS has a major advantage over vSAN as it always maintains data integrity (both Availability and Integrity) even during failures on the minimum 3 node configurations.
vSAN on the other hand suffers I/O errors even with much higher I/O timeouts, larger clusters and even with 3 copies of data (FTT2).
But don’t take my word for it, you can now run the tests yourself.
