As the title suggests, I have been thinking about setting up a Nutanix cluster at my house for testing purposes. You may wonder why I am wanting to go with Nutanix over other available solutions. My reasoning is simple, we use Nutanix at my place of work, so it makes the most sense for me to run Nutanix in my lab.
The first hurdle in this project is of course hardware. I need something capable of running Nutanix. Since this will reside in my living spaces, it needs to be small, quiet, and I don’t want it to double as a heater. It’s plenty hot in Las Vegas already.
