Upgrades with Nutanix Life Cycle Manager

Nutanix Life Cycle Manager (LCM)

See how easy it is to do upgrades in your Nutanix environment with Nutanix Life Cycle Manager (LCM).

The Life Cycle Manager (LCM) tracks and upgrades both software and firmware versions of all entities in the cluster, completely in-band with Nutanix Prism Element and Prism Central. LCM simplifies Nutanix IT infrastructure life cycle operations by consolidating software and firmware component upgrades into a unified control plane.

An infrastructure inventory shows software and firmware versions running across the environment, including any new versions available for deployment. 

Similar to a Linux YUM package manager, LCM enables the deployment of multiple infrastructure upgrade packages across a distributed cluster like AOS and Prism Central.
