Nutanix always protects against disk and node failures. But what if you have even higher failure domain requirements? Unique to Nutanix, you can actually configure fault domains to be at the block or even the rack level. This level of protection means even if you have an entire datacenter rack go offline, the Nutanix software will protect your data in a manner that will ensure data integrity and your cluster will continue to operate. This video walks through a high level architecture of how this works and then how to configure both block and rack awareness.
