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

Pros
The pricing of the solution is excellent. It's one of the main reasons a customer chooses Huawei. It's much, much better than VMware.The solution is stable and everything is taken care of through the Huawei support center. They ensure everything is running smoothly. It's been very good.The product is very reliable. We haven't had any major issues with the product since we bought it.

The configuration is easy, and it's flexible.The cloud features in-site offering, which I found to be very interesting.We are suggesting Nutanix to the management because of scalability and time efficiency.The management interface of this solution is great.The most valuable features are its ease of use and its good performance.I definitely find the reduced power consumption very valuable.It consolidates our servers, and improves our electricity consumption and cooling as well.Flexibility. We're able to mix performance nodes with storage nodes easily. Unlike other vendors where, if we start a hyperconverged solution with them, we have to stick to a specific model, to a specific series with specific capabilities, with Nutanix it's very easy to mix and match the best solution, especially for a dynamic infrastructure like ours.

Cons
Technical support needs improvement. There's a lot of language barriers.t would be helpful if the solution was able to collaborate or integrate with other well-known monitoring tools. Right now, you have to work hard to get it configured. It would be a good selling point for them if they could open up their solution to more integrations.The solution currently does not have cloud integration.

In terms of the IT different categories, I would like for the governing sections to be able to use it in the IT department. If they can have something like a one view management portal or software similar to VMware that would be an added value.There could be better support for high power ESX and other cross platform applications.The storage and back-up facilities could be improved. We need day-to-day encrypting of the database.I would have liked it if Nutanix were a hardware as well as a software platform.The product could be improved with more security. The product needs a bit more experience in the market. I think you don't have the possibility to add other hardware. It could be improved with the ability to add and extend.One thing I've noticed is that, when you do a shift from VMware to Nutanix, it opens the setup of the VM that's currently running. If people from another site double click on it, it opens the VM instead of the setup of the unit. So I would suggest that this could perhaps be switched. That is so far the only change I would like. I would like it if they could fix the instance where you double click on a VM and it opens the VM instead of the setup. That's the only thing that's a major bother to me.The GUI for this solution needs improvement.As of now, Acropolis and VMware cannot talk to each other. Until we have some kind of interface, it would be much better for Nutanix if they built an interface which can talk. Otherwise, if I have a VMware stack and I already have a Nutanix stack, I create containers, I create clusters on VMware, I create clusters on Nutanix. All of these clusters cannot talk to each other. Then it has to be then subverted as a parallel execution. What happens then is that I have to work in two different environments within my data center. Practically, they are two different data centers but physically and logically, they are one. If they cannot talk to each other that creates a lot of issues. That is something which Nutanix has to develop because for Nutanix it is very simple. For example, Oracle is using a function called GoldenGate. They have a feature called GoldenGate which allows them to talk to various different environments which must really help.
