It is hard to come up with a topic to write about when it comes to the Nutanix product portfolio. For one, there is just too much to choose from. I mean, just have a look at the list of features they introduced with the release of AOS 5.0 and it will get your head spinning. Secondly, their own documentation is just outstanding. Their product fact-sheets, website and of course Steven Poitras’s The Nutanix Bible, which contains just about everything you might want to about Nutanix and the bits and bytes involved. Never mind the endless list of community (Blog) rock stars working for or surrounding the company.

New in AOS 5.0

One of the features that went GA with AOS 5.0 is the Acropolis File Services (AFS) service with support for ESXi and AHV (it was in tech preview in version 4.6 / 4.7). A true software-defined scale-out storage solution designed to address a wide range of use cases, including Windows home directories, user profiles and department shares — architected and designed with the same robustness, scalability and availability as the Nutanix platform itself.
