Nutanix is an enterprise storage company.The Nutanix Virtual Computing Platform converges compute and storage into a single system, eliminating the need for traditional storage arrays. Each Nutanix node runs an industry-standard hypervisor and a Nutanix controller VM, which handles all I/O operations for the local hypervisor. Storage resources are exposed to the hypervisor through traditional interfaces, and are pooled and made available to all VMs. The convergence of compute and storage into a single appliance provides a flexible, scalable building block for the modern datacenter.
Nutanix operates in the user space while Virtual SAN (which includes EVO:RAIL, of course) is embedded in the hypervisor kernel. Each design offers unique challenges and choices when designing, deploying and managing hyper-converged systems. Design VSAN is directly plumbed into the compute cluster. The storage available for the virtual machines running on VSAN hosts is […]
NCC is a framework that serves as the engine for the Nutanix Cluster Health. It consists of various modules and plugins. The modules are groups of plugins that correspond to a specific test category. NCC can be run as long as individual nodes are up, regardless of cluster state. The scripts run standard commands against […]
