NON-RETURNABLE DISK DRIVE PROGRAM

When HDDs or SSDs require replacement, you may want to keep your drives in-house to protect your data in order to comply with data security compliance regulations. Nutanix offers a Non-Returnable Disk Drive (NRDK) option, which eliminates the need to return defective disk drives. The program applies to all existing models of the Nutanix product. Customers are responsible for disposing of the replaced disk drives in agreement with their own data security compliance requirements and other applicable laws.

  • NRDK can be purchased as a 1 or 3-year contract and is available for all Nutanix product models
  • NRDK must be purchased per disk
  • The NRDK option is only available for purchase in conjunction with one of Nutanix’s support programs
