Few clarifications

  • With Nutanix on AWS Bare metal EC2 instance, who will be managing the Nutanix components like AOS, AHV in terms of upgrades & patching.
  • Is there any compatibility matrix which highlights the minimum versions of AOS/ESXi/AHV versions which will work with Nutanix Xi cluster in AWS

The customer will be responsible for patching and upgrades. This is not a managed service but we are striving to me it super easy. It’s also way you get to use your own account instead of be forced to integrate with one we control. One-click upgrades should make that easy. There is no plans to support ESXi on AWS, only AHV.
