Nutanix All Flash, Only When Required – VM Pinning
Nutanix continues to innovate at an incredible pace, with new features released every few months. All that is possible only because the data and management fabrics are completely independent from the hypervisor, not in-kernel. This enforced detachment has also allowed Nutanix to implement features such as non-disruptive upgrades for the entire stack, including drivers, firmware and the hypervisors themselves. BIOS automated upgrades anyone?!
Anyhow, most hyperconverged solutions utilize a combination of HDDs and SSDs to deliver both capacity and performance for workloads at acceptable costs. However, Nutanix was also the first vendor to deliver All Flash hyperconverged clusters, providing sub-millisecond latency across entire datasets for latency sensitive workloads.
I actually would argue that the large majority of workloads don’t require All Flash clusters because applications active working sets are often small and fit inside SSDs available in hybrid…
