Acropolis Base Software 4.5.2 released


Just wanted to mention that Acropolis Base Software, formerly known as Nutanix Operating System (NOS) version 4.5.2 was released 2016-02-03.

In this dot dot release update there is a really useful update included meaning that you can use the Nutanix 1-Click upgrade for BIOS and BMC firmware. This is really cool and will make operation even more easy and effective on the Nutanix Xtreme Computing Platform (XCP). The feature is available for Acropolis Hypervisor (AHV) and VMware ESXi hypervisor running NX-xxxx G4 (Haswell) Nutanix nodes.

There is also a tech preview feature for Self Service restore and as with any other tech preview feature it should not be used for production systems. It will make it possible to restore a file from a Nutanix based snapshot when running the ESXi hypervisor. I’ll publish a blog post about the feature in the near future so stay tuned for more in-depth information about it.
