If you are installing the appliance and building your Layers on Nutanix VMs, or you are publishing Layered Images that will be used in a Nutanix environment, you need:
Nutanix account and privileges
Nutanix software and settings
Access to the Nutanix Tools to install on the layer.
Nutanix resource information
The info listed in Nutanix AHV Connector Configuration.
350-500 GB Storage Space
The App Layering appliance uses local storage for temporary files and finalized layers. The more layers you create, the more space you need. However, if you run low on space, you can expand the size of the current disk, or add other disks to the appliance when needed.
40-100 GB network file share (SMB)
The file share connected to the appliance is used for upgrades, Elastic Layers, and cross-platform publishing. This space is easy to expand, if needed.
OS for Layered Images
You need a supported operating system freshly installed from ISO, to use in your OS layer. The OS layer is used to build all of your other layers and Layered Images. Preferably, the ISO should be imported from your hypervisor, so that the operating system is partially optimized for your environment.
