Quick Switching Nutanix Hyper-V to vSphere

I was given a Nutanix cluster with 2 blocks (8 nodes) to learn about the product, features and interoperability. The cluster already had Hyper-V installed.
My core virtualization skills are on vSphere, so I decided to switch the base hypervizor for all nodes to vSphere. As I mentioned in previous posts Nutanix is hypervizor agnostic, supporting vSphere, KVM and Hyper-V. The platform is able to aggregate different node types concurrently in a single Nutanix cluster.
During one of the host installations I recorded this 3 minute video to demonstrate how simple it is to manually switch hypervizors in a Nutanix cluster, however it cal also be automated. In my next video I will demonstrate how to initiate a Nutanix cluster. Keep tuned!

    Any chance the Phoenix installer will be made public?
