Nutanix is a virtualization infrastructure company located in San Jose, California. Nutanix’s mission is to virtualize a datacenter without the need for a SAN. While traditional datacenter architecture employed discrete tiers of servers and storage, which are typically connected via a SAN, Nutanix converges these two tiers of infrastructure down to one, meeting the demands of a modern virtualized environment.

Nutanix introduced a smaller baby model (NX-1050) and a few bigger model (NX-6050/NX-6070). The smaller model is especially nice for the SMB market with limited budget.image

All Nutanix blocks can be filled with 4 nodes except the NX-6000 that fills with 2 Nodes.
