What is Nutanix?

Nutanix is a market-leading hyperconverged infrastructure virtualisation platform (HCI), combining computing and storage power. This solution represents a powerful technical platform for hosting an enterprise private cloud.

Is Hosted Private Cloud powered by Nutanix a managed or pre-installed solution?

Hosted Private Cloud powered by Nutanix solutions are pre-installed, unlike VMware solutions on Hosted Private Cloud (HPC).

This means that once the cluster has been delivered, you are the cluster administrator. You can contact us if you are looking for a 100% managed service with an OVHcloud network partner.

What are the differences between the Nutanix Standard and Advanced packs?

The Nutanix Standard pack includes the AOS Pro licence and the basic features: virtual machines, volume storage and web administration interface.
In addition to all the features in the Standard pack, the Nutanix Advanced pack includes the AOS Ultimate licence, multisite options, advanced disaster recovery and advanced security features.
In each pack, OVHcloud natively includes the Nutanix Flow and Nutanix Prism Pro licences.
You can view the details of the services and licences included in our packs in our guide.

What are the main use cases for Hosted Private Cloud powered by Nutanix?

Our solutions suit a very wide range of use cases.

As a private cloud platform, Nutanix has several software building blocks: virtual machines, Kubernetes clusters, storage and network.

The most common use cases are:

  • Implementing a disaster recovery plan (DRP) between an existing Nutanix cluster and a new Hosted Private Cloud cluster powered by Nutanix.
  • Setting up an overflow cluster for existing workloads.
  • Setting up new dedicated clusters in the cloud.
  • Migrating on-premises architectures to the cloud.
  • Migrating existing workloads hosted on dedicated servers.

Can I connect an existing Nutanix cluster to OVHcloud solutions?

Yes, you can connect them and make them interact with one another.

To be connected under the best conditions, you need to have a suitable network connection, either via VPN or via OVHcloud Connect.

Please also ensure that you have multi-site licences on the initial and target clusters (included in the Nutanix AOS Ultimate licence).

Can I connect other OVHcloud services to these solutions? (Bare Metal Cloud, Public Cloud, etc.)?

A Hosted Private Cloud powered by Nutanix cluster is natively connected within an OVHcloud private network (vRack). This means your OVHcloud services can communicate via the private or public network, depending on your network configurations.

Can I use OVHcloud’s private network (vRack)?

A Hosted Private Cloud powered by Nutanix cluster is automatically delivered with a private network. This is created when the cluster is set up, and attached to your customer account.

You can reconfigure the cluster to change vRack if necessary.
