Nutanix VirtIO 1.1 Drivers Released

If you are a Nutanix customer and using AHV (Acropolis Hypervisor), I have some great news for you. We have released VirtIO 1.1 drivers, and the big deal is that they are now Microsoft WHQL signed. I know the lack of signing was holding back some customers for production workloads. No longer!

VirtIO 1.1And there’s a nice Nutanix install wizard:
