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

Pros
Data is stored in two different places, leveraging more security and availability. Therefore, network problems are having less affect on iSCSI.Simplicity of not having to buy FC or FCoE SAN. Instead, we buy servers with their own storage.The seamlessness behind the scenes of block management.

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
Product looks like it is in the end of development.

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
Licensing is not exactly straightforward, but not the worst I have ever seen.

Read more »

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.
