Nutanix Review

We have been impressed with their level of service during any case we have had to open


What is most valuable?

  • Storage snapshots and replication
  • One-Click upgrades

How has it helped my organization?

I can now do upgrades during work hours with One-Click upgrades. I click an upgrade and walk away. I have never had an issue.

What needs improvement?

Lowering the replication window.

For how long have I used the solution?

Two years.

What was my experience with deployment of the solution?

Deployment was less than half a day for eight nodes.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

Yes, there was a bug with the new Intel chipset, but working with support, they quickly were able to issue an updated BIOS. Even with this issue, we had no downtime

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

None, scaling up is easy with Nutanix.

How is customer service and technical support?

Customer Service:

10 out of 10. We have been impressed with their level of service during any case we have had to open.

Technical Support:

10 out of 10. We have been impressed with their level of service during any case we have had to open.

Which solutions did we use previously?

I have used UCS with NetApp in the past. Nutanix makes keeping things up-to-date much easier.

How was the initial setup?

It is very straightforward, two clusters in four hours.

What about the implementation team?

We used a vendor team. Even though it was their first deployment in production at the time, they were on point!

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

Pricing is above average, but it is worth it.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

IBM, UCS, and NetApp.
