Noise1-3 – HP ML 110 G6 cluster for Nutanix Community Edition

The HP ML 110 G6’s are pretty old. I bought these boxes around 2012 but with 10 GgE Broadcom CNA adapters and some fine SSDs they are still some nice boxes to run Nutanix Community Edition which is free to use.

BUT be aware. There is a reason why I called the boxes Noise1, Noise2, Noise3.


This is the actual listing of the components which I installed.
