Nutanix products provide hyperconverged platforms that include VM hosting and a distributed storage fabric. The platform presents storage in two tiers — Local HDD storage and server-attached flash (hot storage).

Turbonomic recognizes Nutanix storage tiers when calculating placement of VMs and VStorage. In addition, Turbonomic can recommend actions to scale flash capacity up or down by adding more hosts to the cluster, or more flash drives to the hosts.
