Airwave OS supports Acropolis from nutanix

Hi comunnity:

 

Could you tell me if the airwave OS could be installed in Acropolis from Nutanix, please?

Re: Airwave OS supports Acropolis from nutanix

I would think so.  We haven't tested formally, but their white page suggests that VMware ESXi and Microsoft Hyper-V are supported - which we support for installs.  Keep in mind that we do make a general suggestion of spec'ing size increase of 20% to account for virtualization process overhead (more might be required - depending on what the base features of Acropolis require).  Also if you're planning to share the host resources, allocating the right priority and I/O for database interactions is a must since AirWave is very I/O intensive.

Rob, I'm confused by your answer. You say "their whitepaper suggests...", who is the "their". If "their" is Nutanix then that doesn't answer the question being asked. The Nutanix platform supports VMware ESXi, Microsoft Hyper-V and Acropolis (AHV), their own hypervisor. The question is, will Airwave run on Acropolis?

Airwave support installation on Hyper-V and ESXi, regarding Acropolis we havent tested and it is not supported, you can try installing but if any issues comes up TAC does not support.

We havent tested or claimed support for AirWave to run on Acropolis.

What Rob was saying is Nutanix whitepapers say AHV handles CentOS 6.x. If you can install AMirWave iso on AHV with CentOS and run Airwave application, it may work. However, we dont officially support or tested the installation part.

The 'their' reference is to Nutanix whitepaper.

 

So you're saying Acropolis is another vitualization platform?  I didn't understand that from the white paper.  If that's the case, I would still be optimistic in thinking it could work.  But I can't give a clear yes/no until I've seen test validation.  There's currently no plan in the roadmap to test/support Acropolis, so it'd be a feature request to submit to the ideas portal.

 

If it is an option, I would suggest going with VMware or HyperV which are tested and supported install models.  Though, for anyone who does try Acropolis, I'd be interested if there's any performance improvements since we guide a 20% resource increase for the virtualization layer overhead.
