We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:

Pros
The most valuable feature of this solution is the native full mesh (multi-pathing).Remote-copy provides high availability and disaster recovery for the connected clients.Any action we want to do with a Dell EMC product needs a license. But with 3PAR's converged solution, at least there is no need to purchase more licenses to get the all the features that we need. We can get basic and mid-range features without licenses.Technical support for both 3PAR and Dell EMC in my country, Iran, is very difficult because we are under sanctions.We have been able to scale faster and get our applications out in much less time. We don't need to worry about the platform's ability to manage the workload, so we are pretty happy.The InfoSight feature helps us with troubleshooting problems in our environment.We can do more, faster, whether it's spinning up more virtual machines or handling large amounts of data.The availability of the server has given us increased stability in our environment.

Nutanix has several unique capabilities to ensure linear scalability.The fact that there is only one interface to deploy a complete solution for maximum storage is fantastic.Best features are around data locality, compression, and deduplication.The most valuable feature would be the ease of deployment. That is the most significant feature for me because I've worked with multiple vendors and it's always been very complicated to install the software and get everything running.It is a good solution and it is easy to work on their platform.It has solid performance and provides data locality.The level of statistical performance data that it can confirm in real-time is extremely useful. I can see what my VM’s hosts and guests are doing from a single pane of glass and identify issues before they would otherwise become apparent.SRM capabilities for replication have been proven reliable and very useful for our organization.

Cons
I would like to have support for On-The-fly reallocation Data when using VVoL.The cloud-based monitoring Infosight would be better if users are automatically enrolled in the cloud/group based on the configuration or information gathered or uploaded on the internet.I give it an eight because of the support, that I can't get support in my country. This is the worst part. Support cannot be sold until we are out of the sanctions.I think cloud integration would probably be the biggest part, because that's where everyone is going and the seamless integration between on-premise and cloud is an important part of any IT strategy today.This solution is becoming dated.We had a minor error when we were configuring this system, which initially detracted from its overall stability.This solution should be easier to use.I would like to see improvement in the product's scalability. As a partner, I had serious problems because of the competition from Dell EMC and Pure.

There is a need is to be able to consume Nutanix storage from outside the cluster for other, non-Nutanix workloads.They have offered some new features that I have not deployed so I assume that these issues might have been addressed already, but, at my time there was a networking problem.We could always use a performance upgrade, or simplified management.If they can simplify the software slightly for the installation, that would make all the difference.If we can have certified compatibility with other companies, such as Oracle, then it would let us know that they function correctly together.I would like to see a fuller integration with the public cloud. It would help the user enter the hybrid cloud infrastructure.Regarding third-party backup solutions, the only agentless option is Commvault, which is expensive, complex, and requires intensive vendor training.We would like to see it support other systems outside of the compute stack from which it was built.

Pricing and Cost Advice
The cost is reasonable given that the licensing is all included once you purchase it.This licensing fees for this solution are merged with all of our HP annual costs, which in total are a couple hundred thousand dollars.We do not have any licensing fees.I would like it to be cheaper.The only licensing costs are around 3PAR in the form the OS itself. You pay at time of purchase. It is capacity-based, and you have annual maintenance that you pay.Our licensing cost are $32,000 annually.For the entire six node cluster and the two 7200 units plus the Brocade Fibre switches, we financed it through HPE Financial. It was $850,000. We leased that and paid it off in October of 2018.I have to renew support in October for the existing solution. That will cost me roughly $50,000 this year, which in the grand scheme of things, $50,000 is not that much compared to paying $850,000. However, it will be the last year that I'll be able to get direct support from HPE. Therefore, product has to be replaced in 2020.

Pricing varies greatly between license and editions.They should lower the price. If they did they would fall into a more competitive market because the price does scare a lot of potential customers away when they get the quote.There are a lot of features included with Nutanix that cost a lot with other companies.I don't feel that I am receiving the performance which I am paying for.Work close with your InfraTeam and discuss with Nutanix the best way to achieve sizing and price that are right for you.Licensing depends on the features needed.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.Setup cost is minor, pricing is quite a bit (we have a 7-node-cluster for about 450K EUR with 2 vGPU-nodes for Citrix) but that includes hardware, software, and support.
