Choosing Red Hat OpenShift Platform Plus on Nutanix
This customer had been running VMs on Nutanix HCI since 2018. Most of these started as VMware ESX clusters on Nutanix. But over time the customer has migrated most of the VMs to Nutanix Acropolis Hypervisor (AHV). They were drawn to Nutanix because of its space-efficient hyper-converged footprint as well as the REST APIs for integration with their automation scripts. All critical open systems workloads run on Nutanix today, with eight clusters spanning a total of 70 nodes.
The customer had gained experience with open-source community software like CentOS Linux® and Red Hat Ansible®. They spend a lot of time figuring out how to integrate and connect all the community packages. It was also difficult to get support and advice in case of problems. Much community knowledge was held by contractors. So the customer was afraid that they wouldn’t be able to handle the environment by themselves when those resources left.
