What is Calm?

Calm (Cloud Application LifeCycle Management) is a DevOps Automation Platform that models applications and integrates your teams, governance, and life cycle operations to manage your applications, calm includes:

  • Single pane of glass for all of your applications, making infrastructure invisible
  • Visual Infrastructure, Operations, and Governance as code
  • Works with public + private cloud, and containers
  • nuCalm = nutanix Calm, our new platform in PC

Calm has some prerequisites such as a minimum AOS version supported and ports that must be open for the feature to work.

See the full prerequisite here.


  • Nutanix Calm is not supported on Hyper-V clusters.
  • Nutanix Calm does not support vSphere essential edition. If you try to enable Calm with vSphere essential edition license, you get a failure notification because hot-pluggable virtual hardware is not supported by vSphere Essentials.
