Acropolis Base Software 4.5.1 and Prism Central 4.5.1 were released yesterday. Along with many enhancements, I wanted to highlight three new items and one tech preview, I encourage you to download and start a disussion in our forums.


  • Nutanix Cluster CheckAcropolis base software 4.5.1 includes Nutanix Cluster Check (NCC) 2.1.2, which includes improved existing checks and functionality. One new check, valid_drives_config_check, is introduced.


  • Erasure Coding ImprovementsNutanix has made changes to the operation of the erasure coding feature.


  • 1-Click Upgrade for BIOS and BMC Firmware - This feature is available for ESXi hypervisor host environments running on NX-xxxx G4 platforms only


Tech Preview Features


  • Self-Service RestoreThis feature allows a user to restore a file within a virtual machine from the Nutanix protected snapshot with minimal Nutanix administrator intervention. This feature is supported on Nutanix clusters running the ESXi hypervisor only. Note: Do not use tech preview features in production environments.
