I'm a Nutanix KVM user and I would like to know how I can deploy a virtual appliance provided by a third party company.
In vmware you can deploy a template, in KVM you can import a new VM ... what about Nutanix / Acropolis ?

For existing KVM VMs, we have a simple process to introduce those legacy (pre NOS 4.1) VMs to Acropolis.
Legacy VMs and Acropolis managed VMs show up in Prism, but we can only edit the Acropolis managed VMs in the Prism interface.
To import the VM in to acropolis, the import_vm utility is used. It is not necessary to power off the VM.
