If you’re a more regular reader of my blog you probably have read about Nutanix AHV, the native hypervisor that Nutanix ships. Nutanix AHV is built from the ground up for hyper convergence and that makes it a great hypervisor for desktop virtualisation. This is where the relationship with Citrix and the Citrix Provisioning SDK comes into play.

If you read my previous blog post AOS 5.0 released, XenServer TP in full effect! you know that we released AOS 5.0 and with that comes a new version of Nutanix AHV. This new release brings a couple of performance improvements specifically useful for the desktop virtualization use case so this blog will highlight a few of those improvements.
With the release of AOS 5.0 one of the many features we added was the unattended (silent) installation of the Nutanix Guest Tools (NGT). This might seem like something small but for most of us out there automation is king so I took the time to have a quick go to see how easy the install is.
Today Nutanix released AOS 5.0 which is our biggest release to date! Altough we’re adding tons of features in this release there’s one thing that got my attention a little bit more than others… Nutanix and Citrix are extending their relationship as this new release brings XenServer Technical Preview!
