Nutanix AOS 5.5 Released

Nutanix has released version 5.5 (codename “Obelix”) of their Acropolis Operating System (AOS). For Nutants, this release is the capstone of Nutanix goodness. Be aware that the full list of Obelix features could not fit into one major release and is actually being released over the coming months as a series of minor releases (5.5.0, 5.5.1, 5.5.2, etc.).

This obviously also means that the supporting components of the Nutanix eco-system also have new releases to complement AOS, namely AHV, Prism Central, NCC, LCM and Foundation. Please refer to the resources section at the end for links to downloads and release notes.

In a nutshell (more detail below):

  • Nutanix Calm (included in Prism Central – Orchestration and Application Lifecycle Management)
  • Prism Central Catalog Service (Image Management)
  • Prism Central Scheduled Reporting
  • Prism Central AHV Right-Sizing
  • Prism Central Dynamic Alerting
  • NearSync (1m RPO)
  • AHV vGPU
  • AHV Turbo
  • AHV Microsegmentation
  • Network Visualisation
  • CVM Network Segmentation (Storage network and Hypervisor can now be on separate subnets)
  • Data-at-Rest Encryption (software-based)
  • Acropolis Compute Cloud (AC2)
  • Microsoft Hyper-V 2016 supported
  • RDMA Support (part of G6 refresh)
