Nutanix Acropolis AOS Review

It works and has good scalability and support


What is our primary use case?

We mainly use it for virtual machine workloads on Application servers. We want to use it for disaster recovery and the way they replicate between sites. It has already got these features, but we just haven't implemented or tested them yet.

How has it helped my organization?

We have just put it in, so I can't say anything about that yet.

What is most valuable?

In general, being able to patch and not having to pay for SanDisk is the best thing about hyper-converged.

What needs improvement?

We had a few problems with the foundation machine that you can use to build your systems out. We've got it working now, but it should be improved.

For how long have I used the solution?

I have been using this solution for two weeks.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

It is stable so far. It is pretty new, and there are no issues.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

It is scalable. I can add or take nodes away really easily. We did that, and it works great.

It is only two weeks old, and there are probably hundreds of people using it.

How are customer service and technical support?

They are very good. They know what they're doing. I would rate them a nine out of ten. We had a couple of different guys trying to help get us set up. One said one thing, and the other one said another thing. Neither of them was wrong, but they weren't on the same page. That's why they don't get a 10 out of 10.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

We did not use any hyper-converged solution.

How was the initial setup?

The initial setup was straightforward. Nutanix pretty much brings somebody along for the foundation of your system, which makes it really nice. This is one of the features we liked in Nutanix.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

Its price is fine. I can't really complain about that.

What other advice do I have?

Take a look at the network requirements for the solution. It tells you a lot about the efficiency of it.

I'd give it a nine out of ten because it works. It does what they say it does. It is hard to get a 10 out of 10 for me, but it is a pretty good solution. If I rated other companies I've worked with, they'd get sevens or sixes. I like Nutanix. They're doing a good job.

Which deployment model are you using for this solution?

On-premises

Which version of this solution are you currently using?
