Nutanix AFS 2.1.1 Released

Hot off the press is Nutanix AFS 2.1.1 (Nutanix File Services). In case you don’t know, AFS is a web-scale “NAS” that runs in a highly available configuration on Nutanix clusters. This has several important new features, plus a number of resolved issues. New features include:

  • AFS Sizing workflow at time of deployment
  • Ability to rename AFS clusters
  • Ability to clone AFS on AHV (used for backups, DR testing, recovery, etc.)
  • Microsoft Management console support for AFS management
  • Ability to manage AFS permissions via the file server administrator role (which can be linked to a AD user or group)
