Nutanix Acropolis Review

Metro availability with synchronous replication is most appreciable for my customer, but cloning VMs in Prism would be nice.


What is most valuable?

  • Metro availability
  • Fingerprinting

How has it helped my organization?

Metro availability with synchronous replication is most appreciable for my customer. Its benefit is high avaibility in production.

What needs improvement?

Maybe more functions for Prism with VMmware, for example, cloning VMs in Prism, exactly like Acropolis.

For how long have I used the solution?

I've used them for almost three years.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

One time, with IPMI not reachable for CVM. I troubleshot this problem with Nutanix US support.

How are customer service and technical support?

It's at a high level.

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

No previous solution was used.

How was the initial setup?

It is small but complex. Howerver, if you have a good skills with virtualization solutions, and Linux systems, you can install it without any problems.

What about the implementation team?

I installed the solution alone. My advice is to read the Nutanix documents before your installation.

What was our ROI?

I have am immediately gain, as it has lower hardware maintenance costs, and lower electricity consumption.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

I have evaluated SimpliVity OmniCube.
