On Nutanix Resiliency – The Controller VM
If you make the claim that your DC infrastructure should be invisible, clearly you need to have a solid story around handling failures. Coping with failure scenarios is critical in any infrastructure. I get asked often on how Nutanix clusters cope in situations where things go wrong unexpectedly – and rightly so.
Nutanix has been designed to expect failures of hardware, hypervisor or Nutanix’s own NOS software. I don’t care how long it takes to deploy a Nutanix cluster (5 mins or 60 mins depending if you want to change hypervisor etc) – as to me that is a one-off occurrence and fairly uninteresting (although a lot faster than the old way of deploying servers and a SAN). What really matters is whether or not you are going to be called in at 2am or on weekends when things die – or even worse if something goes wrong at 9am on a weekday.
