Nutanix Acropolis AOS Review

It removes wait times in getting tasks done

What is our primary use case?

We run our primary data center on Nutanix. We run an on-prem Exchange environment along with multiple application servers. We have about 200 VMs and about 20TB of raw storage on the appliance.

How has it helped my organization?

Simplified management: It provides us more time to work on other tasks. We were able to replace two SANs and two blade centers with a single 2U Nutanix appliance.

What is most valuable?

Simplified storage management. Therefore, we do not have to rely on others to manage storage, which removes wait times in getting tasks done.

What needs improvement?

Extra features should not be so expensive. We would love to be able to use or even just try some of the extra features without having to buy them. Buying those features is just as expensive as buying vSphere licenses, so the cost savings is nullified.

For how long have I used the solution?

One to three years.
