Acropolis Container Services on #Nutanix

This is the first release of a turnkey solution for deploying Docker containers in a Nutanix cluster. Instead of swiping your credit card for AWS EC2 you can deploy your containers through the built in Self Service Portal. Now it’s not all totally new because Nutanix previously released a volume plug-in for Docker. What is new is:

* The Acropolis Container Services(ACS) provisions multiple VMs as container machines to run Docker
containers on them.
* Containers are deployed apart of projects. In projects, users can deploy VM’s or containers. You can assign quotas to the projects over, storage, CPU and memory.
* ACS can use the public Docker registry is provided by default, but if you have a separate Docker registry you
want to use, configure access to that registry as well.
* One-Click upgrades for the Container machines.
* Basic monitoring with a containers view in the self-service portal allows you to view summary information about containers connected to this portal and access detailed information about each container.
