System architecture

The solution products are designed for Nutanix architecture cluster deployment. A typical ThinkAgile HX architecture includes three or more servers that are implemented as single-node, two-node, or four-node clusters.

Each server contributes storage to the Nutanix cluster from the local disks on the server:
  • Hybrid Cluster – The server provides a combination of solid state disks (SSDs) for caching and hard disk drives (HDDs) for storage capacity.

  • All-Flash Cluster – The server provides SSDs for caching and SSDs for storage capacity.

The following figure provides a conceptual view of the Nutanix architecture:
