The Nutanix Cloud Platform is Hyperconverged Infrastructure (HCI) software available on Nutanix hardware or available for implementation by OEMs in their products, including HPE and Lenovo, plus HPE and Cisco through the channel.

This product brief will include details of the original Nutanix appliance and Nutanix’s Acropolis operating system (AOS).

Nutanix hardware (NX series appliances) is available in more than 10 configurations. Each 1U or 2U server chassis can provides up to 10 hard drives or up to 24 SSDs in hybrid and all-flash models.

Like most other hyperconverged systems, Nutanix nodes are clustered in a scale-out topology, with the Nutanix software running as a VM. Nutanix clusters are typically 3 nodes or more, (no specified maximum) but does support 2-node clusters with a witness VM and a single-node cluster with certain models.

Each NX series appliance contains 1, 2 or 4 server nodes. Storage from each node is pooled in a distributed file system architecture and exposed to the hypervisor through traditional interfaces. Nutanix allows different models to be combined in the same cluster, even hybrid and all-flash nodes. Nutanix supports file, block and object storage.
