@jayachandran.radhakrishnan1_183130 I've had experience with several users and customers who have tested on Nutanix infrastructure and they haven't had consistent results with it at scale (large transaction volumes) due to the shared storage not being able to keep up with the high IO demands.
As you may already be aware, using shared storage is an anti-pattern in Cassandra since it introduces a single point of failure. You might have some success with it on low traffic volumes but eventually hit a wall when the traffic to the cluster picks up. For more info, see https://docs.datastax.com/en/dse-planning/doc/planning/planningAntiPatterns.html. Cheers!
