We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"The flexibility is the most advantageous aspect of the solution. Our system has a very big environment. Due to this, the replication and backup operation is not an easy task. We prefer HPE SimpliVity modules in our environment, even when we have some different cases in operations."
"Consolidation and duplications features."
"The solution's most valuable feature is its ability to restore lost machines. Essentially its high availability capabilities are extremely valuable to us."
"The user interface, reporting, and management are good, and we are quite happy with the performance."
"We find the deduplication and compression features to be most valuable, as well as that of the backup solution inside."
"One of the most valuable features that can be found, is the inclusion of a hypervisor for free."
"It has a single pane of glass and you don't have to jump around various toolsets."
"The ease of deployment is very good."
"In terms of scalability, adding a number of nodes, I find that it will not be any issues."
"A great feature involves real-time hardware changes."
"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."
"The product is easy to manage."
"I definitely find the reduced power consumption very valuable. Another aspect I really like, when one compares Citrix to VMware, is the interface where you talk directly to your VM from the present software."
"Features that should be addressed concern the HPE functionality and the interaction with VMware."
"The solution needs to add NFS features."
"The MTG inside HP could be improved."
"The interface is not fully integrated with the ESXi, which is something that could be improved."
"The solution has a complicated front-end."
"The ability to create clusters faster would be nice to see in a future release."
"I would like to see official compatibility with Red Hat in the future."
"It would be ideal if it was more secure."
"We did have some integration issues."
"There is room to enhance the micro-segmentation."
"I think some of the tasks that must be done using CLI could be added to the web interface."
"Nutanix Acropolis AOS could improve by adding some NAS features, similar to the ones that are available in the NetApp solution."
"The productivity and work efficiency of Nutanix Acropolis AOS could improve."
"The pricing is quite good in comparison with HPE SimpliVity, Nutanix Scale, and even traditional architecture."
"AHV is free! This is a great feature that should be taken advantage of."
"The price of the solution could improve. Nutanix has recently changed its pricing model from perpetual to subscription. They have identified there are challenges with the pricing model."
"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."
"The cost of Nutanix Acropolis AOS is reasonable."
"When compared to the competitors, the price is reasonable."
"Our Nutanix license is for five years. There is a support arrangement there, but that aspect is more or less taken care of during the initial installation. With HCI architecture, whenever we do any kind of auto scaling or scaling of servers and resources, there is a significant amount of software licensing involved."
