Nutanix and Storage Options

So with the latest enhancements to Nutanix which have arrived so far and what’s coming in the next release with Asterix, Nutanix has stepped up their game to go beyond regular HCI which they have already done for a while now. So the purpose of this post is just to give an overview of what kind of Storage functionality you can actually do with Nutanix.

Starting with the introduction of volume groups they can present a virtual disk as a iscsi share directly to a virtual machine which would also benefit from the distributed storage system underneath. Nutanix also introduced File Service which was a highly-redudant, scaleable file server solution, which would present itself using SMB 2.1 protocol using an addiotional service VM but still manageable from PRISM

And also Nutanix since they support multiple hypervisors can present itself using SMB or NFS protocol directly to the hypervisor (VMware or Hyper-V) but also they can use their own hypervisor where management is bundled in directly.
