Product support for Infosphere MDM verions installed on Nutanix

We have adopted Nutanix as our chosen on premises infrastructure

hypervisor technology and the lack of support for this platform is concerning

and may prevent us migrating to the latest software version (currently

9.7). Any future plans for supporting this infrastructure environment will be beneficial

    Hi Chalka,

    After further research from the team, based on the compatibility between VMware ESXi (which we already support) and Nutanix, we can comfortably claim support for Nutanix (even without further testing).

    I am sorry about all the confusion that this has caused. Hope this is great news at the end.

    Hi Chalka,

    We don't have any plan on supporting MDM native installs on Nutanix hypervisors.

    However, for MDM Containers, once OpenShift supports Nutanix, we will revisit MDM's support for Nutanix, again for MDM Containers only, NOT for MDM native installs.

    Thank you - Chalka - for the submission. We will investigate and follow up here with status.
