Nutanix AHV

Nutanix AHV is a modern and secure virtualization platform that powers VMs and containers for applications and cloud-native workloads on-premises and in public clouds.


The following steps describe how to deploy YugabyteDB Anywhere (YBA) and YugabyteDB using Nutanix AHV VMs:

  1. Choose an operating system from the list of YBA supported operating systems for deploying YugabyteDB.

  2. Create AHV VMs on Nutanix Prism with Network Interface Controller (NIC).

  3. Create, add, and mount storage volumes on the AHV VMs.

  4. Create and attach volume groups to the AHV VMs.

  5. Install YBA software using YBA Installer.

  6. Create an on-premises provider.

  7. Create additional AHV VMs to act as on-premises database nodes.

  8. Configure on-premises database AHV VMs.

  9. Provision on-premises database VMs.

  10. Create an on-premises YBA universe.


For high availability, create an affinity rule on the Prism side that hosts AHV nodes (database nodes) on separate controller VMs.
