Generation 6 (G6) Hardware for NX-1065 and NX-8035

Last week Nutanix published more info on G6 hardware NX-1065-G6 and NX-8035-G6. Support Portal NIC replacement instructions (requires login) contains detailed information on various NIC options and also front and rear view drawings of the new G6 hardware.

Quick Notes on G6 Nutanix hardware

  • At the moment only available with NX-1065-G6, NX-3060-G6 and NX-8035-G6 series nodes
  • G6 hardware is based on Intel Skylake processor family
  • (G5 was based on Intel Broadwell)
  • Different optimal memory configurations (192GB, 384GB, ..) due to six memory channels with Skylake architecture. G5/Broadwell had four memory lanes with different optimal memory configurations (128GB,256G,512GB,…)
  • NX-1065-G5
    • Up to four nodes per 2U (4N2U)
    • Dual port 10GBaseT (RJ-45) LOM (Lan On Motherboard)
    • One slot for additional NICs
  • NX-3060-G6
    • Up to four nodes per 2U (4N2U)
    • Nodes have more connectivity options than NX-3060-G5 nodes
    • Dual port 10GBaseT (RJ-45) LOM (Lan On Motherboard)
    • Two slots for additional NICs
      • New NIC supported: Dual port 25GbE spf+
  • NX-8035-G6
    • Up to two nodes per 2U (2N2U)
    • Dual port 10GBaseT (RJ-45) LOM (Lan On Motherboard)
    • Two slots for additional NICs
      • New NIC supported: Dual port 25GbE spf+

New DPTPB Nutanix Visio shapes

NX-1065-G6 and NX-3060-G6 node shapes (NX-x06x-G6)

The official Nutanix stencil package contains shapes only for NX-3060-G6 series. No official shapes for NX-1065-G6 or NX-8035-G6.

External appearance of NX-1065-G6 series node is pretty close to NX-3060-G6 series node appearance, the only difference is that NX-1065-G6 series nodes have only one NIC slot available, while NX-3060-G5 series nodes have two NIC slots available. I am using the same basic node building block to make both shapes.

NX-8035-G6 Node shapes

I will update DPTPB Nutanix stencil package with NX-8035-G6 once I get my hands on suitable donor shape (Supermicro X11 generation shapes).

Updated and new NIC shapes

Tuned all NIC shapes to be simpler and smaller in size. Both NX-3060-G6 and NX-8035-G6 support now using 25GbE spf+ adapters, added new 25GbE NIC shapes.
