Nutanix on HPE ® ProLiant ® 2. Nutanix Enterprise Cloud Overview | 7 Figure 1: Nutanix Enterprise Cloud OS Stack 2.1. Nutanix Acropolis Architecture Acropolis does not rely on traditional SAN or network-attached storage (NAS) or expensive storage network interconnects. It combines highly dense storage and server compute (CPU and RAM) into a single platform building block. Each building block delivers a unified, scale-out, shared-nothing architecture with no single points of failure. The Nutanix solution requires no SAN constructs, such as LUNs, RAID groups, or expensive storage switches. All storage management is VM-centric, and I/O is optimized at the VM virtual disk level. The software solution runs on nodes from a variety of manufacturers that are either entirely solid state storage with NVMe for optimal performance or a hybrid combination of SSD and HDD storage that provides a combination of performance and additional capacity. The DSF automatically tiers data across the cluster to different classes of storage devices using intelligent data placement algorithms. For best performance, algorithms make sure the most frequently used data is available in memory or in flash on the node local to the VM.
