Upgrade Nutanix Acropolis Hypervisor aka AHV

Nutanix has its own hypervisor called Acropolis Hypervisor aka AHV. Nutanix Acropolis Hypervisor is highly customized, Linux based KVM, running on Linux CentOS 6.5. AHV is a integrated part of Nutanix Xtreme Compute platform – more about Nutanix XCP you read here – Nutanix XCP.

As every hypervisor, AHV needs to be updated or upgraded, from time to time. Upgrade process of Nutanix Acropolis Hypervisor is extremely simple and painless. Whole process is transparent for guest virtual machines (one of the many features of AHV is vMotion or LiveMigration – you name it). In upgrade process I will use well known (one of the best Nutanix Prism features) Nutanix OneClick Upgrade. Nutanix Oneclick upgrade supports upgrade for all three supported hypervisors,VMware ESXi, Microsoft Hyper-V and obliviously for Nutanix Operating System.
