We have recently installed a Nutanix SX-1365 3-node cluster with Cisco SG550 10GbE switches to replace ageing traditional virtual infrastructure for a customer. The customer was already a VMware house and are now running vSphere on the new Nutanix infrastructure.
Servers were quickly and easily migrated across to the Nutanix platform, and backup is being managed using Veeam for local backup and also backup to offsite secure cloud storage.
Moving forward we will also be making use of Veeam Cloud Connect Replication to enable the customer to failover to a virtual data centre in the cloud for disaster recovery.
All in all, the deployment of a hyperconverged Nutanix infrastructure with Veeam has improved performance, capacity and functionality for this customer. It’s a great solution!
