Nutanix Clusters on AWS is now live. Formerly known as Xi Clusters, this offering has been talked about for a few years; great to see it has finally arrived. I think the reason for the long incubation period is that Nutanix wanted to get it right. This is a great offering for those customers that want to continue their journey to hybrid cloud using Nutanix software.
Using it is quite simple, you subscribe to Nutanix Clusters, link to your AWS account and deploy. Then you can link your existing Prism Central instance to the AWS-based Nutanix Cluster to provide a single management plane. For the budget constrained, they also have a pause button to save the state of the cluster which avoids expensive AWS charges.
