We need discovery of these. They are in our env and may be hundreds very soon.

AHV or Acropolis Hypervisor Virtualization is a Nutanix technology.

 

This can be combined with

Hi Bill,

Also our customer wants to use discovery for his Nutanix infrastructure. They have about 200 virtual servers managed with this technology.

Specifically, we need topology that is similar to other hypervisor technologies.  Nutanix has it's own hypervisor and can operate as a manager of other hypervisors.

Here's a good high-level picture of Nutanix architecture from nutanixbible.com

The Acropolis layer is the starting point in my opinion.

Many companies are adopting Hyperconvergence with AHV (Acropolis Hypervisor Virtualization) from Nutanix technology, and are popping up more and more in enterprise environments. It´s important that uCMDB add compatibility for this type of technology.
