Welcome to Nutanix Community Edition, this is where you will find the download bits for Community Edition (CE) 5.6
If you are contemplating use of Nutanix for business and production use, we highly recommend engaging in an actual POC with the partner or Nutanix account teams. The Community Edition is a technology demonstrator, and is not a replacement for production Acropolis devices, irrespective of the unavailability of enterprise support for the CE software.
