Intended Audience:


Nutanix Technologies:



Estimated time to complete: 90-120 minutes

– An Ubuntu Linux 20.04 VM (Server or Desktop)
– Internet connection from the cluster (for downloading packages)
– Connection to Prism Central 5.17 or later
– Calm enabled and working on your Prism Central instance

In addition, an Internet connection will be required to download, install and configure software packages.

NOTE: Because of the advanced nature of this lab, the deployment of an Ubuntu VM is not covered in this content.


This lab is intended as a learning foundation for the Nutanix Calm DSL. Once an Ubuntu 20.04 has been provisioned (outside the lab), the content will walk through:

  • Configuration of the VM to run Docker
  • Installation and usage of the Nutanix Calm DSL Docker container
  • Generation of sample blueprints
  • Project management
  • Detailed explanations of how a Nutanix Calm DSL blueprint is architected
  • Walk-through creating a complete blueprint from scratch

Please be aware that due to the advanced nature of this lab and the number of deployment choices available, the content does not cover the deployment of an Ubuntu 20.04 virtual machine.
