iPhone-like consolidation combining Hypervisor, Compute, Storage and Analytic software in a small form factor is what Nutanix is bringing to the masses. If you want to be called the iPhone of the data center you should be able to get messages from it!
To get Cluster Alerts directly to your iPhone:
Register for a Prowl account
Generate an API key
Click the “Generate Key” button.
On your iOS device, search “Prowl”, and download Prowl: Growl Client from the App Store. ($2.99)
Retrieve custom prowl email
Copy the API Email address (
Add Email Entry
On NOS: From Prism, click the Gear icon > Alert Email Contacts. Paste the Prowl API email address.
Along with the ability to send alerts to your iPhone you do have the option of selecting which alerts you do not want to receive notification from. All alerts have options to disable and set a longer delay before the next alert. Keep in mind Nutanix Storage Controllers also self heal. While a storage controller is down on Nutanix the remaining virtualized storage controllers will pick up the load while the cluster health is restored.
Big thanks to Paul DiGioia for sharing his knowledge.
