Hi

I did some more investigation and it turns out that File Services will be available in v4.6 and that should be released in December.

Yes, Dwayne is correct, the tech preview for File Services is expected to come in 4.6, which is right around the corner.

As for SSD pinning and File Restore, both are in 4.5.0.2

SSD Pinning is CLI only in that release (design choice at the last minute) and file restore requires the nutanix guest tools to be installed inside of the windows VM, and is also CLI only.
