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

I didn’t have a previous solution. I tested different solutions for my customers, such as Nutanix, VSAN, HPE VSA, etc, and evaluated them, but the solutions are for my customers. Also, I test all solutions in our infrastructure.

How was the initial setup?

Setup was very easy. With a few steps and a nice wizard, you have your infrastructure up.

Is not a cheap solution, compare with competitors, but you must consider all variables in the environment to calculate the TCO. You have pre-sales tool Nutanix Sizer to calculate the TCO.

I looked at VMware vSAN, and HPE VSA.

What other advice do I have?

Use the sizing tools in order to design the infrastructure properly.
