It was very difficult to distinguish between different service names in Nutanix platform, but now Nutanix surprised us by changing the names of
some services to be easy and without user angst.
- Acropolis File Services (AFS) is now Nutanix Files
- Acropolis Block Services (ABS) is now Nutanix Volumes
- Object Storage Services is now Nutanix Buckets
- Xi Cloud DR services is now Leap
Actually, that’s a good thing, but on the other hand I see it is not the good thing, as in the past, once I saw the name of the service, I can configure a preconceived idea of the function of this service.
However let’s prepare our self to clear the old definitions and define new definitions or each service, but please keep the old functions for these services.
