First post fighting the FUD for Nutanix. I saw an image on Twitter recently where there was FUD about disk failure and data loss when using Nutanix. At Nutanix, we have a lot of different hardware models and also for people who don’t keep up to technology, we OEM with Dell and Lenovo as well, who have specific models of thier own.
Even with the different hardware models, our software handles various levels of failure with ease. The data consistency and resiliency of the software is not dependent on the hardware it runs. Be it a disk failure or node failure or block failure. There is varying level of redundancy that handle all of the above.
My first post since joining Nutanix. Its been pretty hectic in my new role and I am loving it. There is so much to learn and there are so many awesome things coming up; its hard to keep abreast of everything.
One of the best reasons to choose Nutanix is CHOICE. Choice of running the Hypervisor you want not the one that you are forced to live with. For many people today the hypervisor of choice is still VMware ESXi and rightly so. But Microsoft hasn’t been quiet with Hyper-V. Hyper-V is almost at feature parity with ESXi now but is still considered second best. At Nutanix, we have our own hypervisor called Acropolis Hypervisor (What a great name), its based on KVM but has been through the hands of our very capable Product Development team, who have ironed out all the issues. We also strive to enable our customers to change hypervisors when they want to; be it from AHV to ESXi or Hyper-V to AHV. This blog post focuses on how to convert a Hyper-V UEFI VM such as Windows 2008 R2 or higher to traditional BIOS VM on AHV.
