System Requirements for Synchronous Replication for VMware on Nutanix with Metro Availability


Review the following system requirements.

Requirements for the Nutanix Storage Array and VMware

MediaAgent and Access Nodes Requirements

  • Deploy a MediaAgent on a server outside the Nutanix cluster, so that it is available if either the active or standby cluster is unavailable.

  • For best results, deploy at least one access node for each cluster, located on a server that is outside the cluster.

Hypervisors and VM Groups Requirements

  • A vCenter hypervisor can have a mix of metro and non-metro VM groups, for example, a VM group with one metro container and another VM group with non-metro containers.

  • Create separate VM groups for metro containers and non-metro containers.

  • For each metro container, configure a separate VM group.
