Nutanix Acropolis Hypervisor for beginners series – AHV
I started my life in IT with MS-DOS and then moved into Windows when that became a thing. Then the wonders of VMware were introduced to me about a decade ago and I never looked back. Along the way, I have had limited exposure to Linux and related systems and it was always something that I wanted to learn more about, but other things always came first.
Since joining Nutanix recently, I will be learning a lot more about the Acropolis Hypervisor (AHV) offering that is built from KVM roots. This will be a new challenge for someone with my background and I’m looking forward to it. To help others with a similar background, I thought that a series of blog posts covering topics on getting started and operational tasks would be a good place to begin. These posts should help others that are new to virtualization or are experienced with VMware vSphere or Hyper-V already.
In the upper right margin of each post is an index of the posts in this series for easier access.
Creating VMs on AHV
Using the Acropolis CLI (ACLI)
Upgrading AHV Hosts to new version
If there are other topics that you would like to see, drop me a note in the comments or via another method and I’ll consider it. If this series is well received I may do an Advanced AHV series at a later date.
