High performance and low latency applications demand far more throughput and capability from a hypervisor kernel and for Nutanix specifically, the Controller Virtual Machine. Installing faster hardware doesn't simply increase the throughput especially if the underlying software remains the same. In this model using Nutanix's AHV Turbo the hypervisor kernel is bypassed for disk I/O … Continue reading NX-9030-G5 RDMA Capable
Starting in December of 2017 the Skylake refresh began not only bringing faster clock speeds, increased core density but also larger RAM capacity. The NX-3060 model was the first in the portfolio for the refresh - a popular choice due to its compute density of 4 x dual CPU servers in 2U - delivering up … Continue reading Nutanix NX gets the Skylake update
The NX-1175 released early January of 2018 and was pretty much under the radar to press announcements. There's a been a big up-take in the RoBo / Edge computing areas where small form factor and minimal compute requirements need addressing and the NX-1175 fits the bill nicely. Unlike other models the NX-1175 can be deployed in … Continue reading What’s the NX-1175s?
