"Karbon is a must-have as it drastically simplifies the deployment of Kubernetes.""The solution offers impressive performance.""Everything is core centralized on the UI.""We like that the size of the box is 1U or 2U only, and all the servers are fit into that box. The ease of operation is there. All the servers and the SAN storage are inside the box.""Nutanix has several unique capabilities to ensure linear scalability.""One of the most valuable features is that it can be applied at any scale.""The product is easy to manage.""The ease of deployment is very good."

Cons
"It is a cloud-based environment and at times, it is not very simple to use."

More Cloudian HyperStore Cons »

"In the licensing, it needs to be clear about features because it is not clear whether Flow is integrated or not.""The solution doesn't support older systems, which can be a problem for some organizations who wish to implement it. It became a problem for us due to the fact that some of our systems are older.""Could have better visibility with the main OEM backup integrators.""Pricing and varieties of options could be better.""There is a need is to be able to consume Nutanix storage from outside the cluster for other, non-Nutanix workloads.""Some clients find the solution's cost to be too high.""I'm not very technical, so I don't know if there are any features that are really lacking. Our customers seem pleased with it, and I haven't heard of any downsides.""The pricing of the solution is too high. It needs to be adjusted or lowered to be more competitive."

More Cloudian HyperStore Pricing and Cost Advice »

"AHV is free! This is a great feature that should be taken advantage of.""The licensing costs are a bit expensive but when you compare the features, it's reasonable.""This product is less expensive than some of the competing HCI solutions.""Its price is fine. I can't really complain about that.""My advice is to get the ultimate license, as it is worth it.""The setup cost, pricing, and licensing are very competitive and TCO is very low compared to three-tier solutions.""Nutanix is cheaper than Cisco HyperFlex, although it depends on the configuration because Nutanix can also be expensive.""The pricing is fair for the package."
