Best Practices Guide:
Metro Availability

Deliver zero RPO and near-zero RTO for your critical workloads with Nutanix hyperconverged infrastructure.

Most solutions that exist today are expensive, complex, and built on legacy principles and infrastructure. As a result, many application workloads are not protected—or are underprotected—and vulnerable to outage. To help address these concerns, Nutanix has developed a continuous availability solution called Metro Availability.

Combining the Nutanix hyperconverged infrastructure with this continuous availability solution limits downtime and preserves all data, even during a complete site failure. Further, Metro Availability enables workload mobility for disaster avoidance or planned maintenance scenarios.

  • Overview of VMware components and features, including the VMware high availability (HA) cluster, Distributed Resource Scheduler (DRS), vMotion, and vCenter Server.
  • Common operational scenarios, including establishing the stretched cluster, planned failover, site failure, and site recovery.
  • Requirements, interoperability specifications, and specific recommendations.
  • Nutanix utilities and alerting capabilities.
