Re: Bad news for Nutanix
Because Nutanix supports more hardware and different hypervisors from Microsoft at the moment.
I'm not endorsing Nutanix in any way but from what I know for Azure Stack it is very strict in hardware terms, that means that there is no pick,mix and match when designing the HCI solution.
We are used in Microsoft supporting a broad range of hardware [but always miss the HCL point ;-)], but in this case they want to be extra sure that their solution is not exploding at their client's face in any way and to be frank they are correct doing so.
Azure stack is tempting, we need more info though and also we yet need to see in action how it compares with other well established players in HCI software.
Just my 2 cents :-)
