Nutanix Prism Review

Good micro-segmentation, automation, and central management

What is our primary use case?

We have several sites that we manage centrally using Nutanix Prism.

What is most valuable?

The most valuable features are micro-segmentation, automation, and central management between sites. By using virtualization, we are saving on the cost of hardware.

What needs improvement?

I would like to have some cluster management tools included.

For how long have I used the solution?

I have been using Nutanix Prism for six months.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

This solution is stable. We are still in the evaluation stage, but it is being used on a daily basis.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

We have two sites, each with three nodes in a cluster. Beyond that, we have not tested scalability.

How are customer service and technical support?

The technical support from Nutanix is great.

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

We are currently in the process of migrating from VMware to Nutanix.

How was the initial setup?

The initial setup is easy. Our deployment took three days to complete.

What about the implementation team?

We asked the vendor to support us for our implementation and deployment.

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

Compared to VMware, the price of this solution is great.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We were looking into using Oracle PCA because one of our main objectives is to have a disaster recovery site on the cloud. This means that what we have installed, and whatever workloads are running, need to be replicated in the cloud. The best choices that we found for this were Oracle PCA, Nutanix, and VMware.

Ultimately, we found some limitations in Oracle PCA. Between Nutanix and VMware, they had similar features but Nutanix is less costly.

What other advice do I have?

Overall, this product is a good choice. You get a lot of features at a lower price.

I would rate this solution a nine out of ten.

Which deployment model are you using for this solution?
