We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"Our production servers are running in Linux, and this solution supports that environment well."
"Scaling the solution is easy. You just have to add more hardware."
"I like that this is an open-source solution. It is very powerful, and it's easy."
"The KVM service is well managed with a central policy interface."
"If you prefer command-line, there are all kinds of command-line options."
"It is easy to use, stable, and flexible. It is a pretty mature product, and it is faster than VirtualBox."
"The GUI interface makes the management of KVM easier than ever before."
"This solution is open source and easy to configure."
"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."
"Support for VF is needed, where you can, for example, export from VMware to KVM."
"The solution should be more user friendly. We are struggling with the command lines."
"The virtual manager and the graphical QEMU for KVM need some improvement."
"The initial setup of this solution is more difficult than some of the competing products and it could be improved."
"One thing that maybe could be improved is making it easier to scale. It needs to be more clear on how to scale the storage space for virtual machines."
"Its resource usage can be improved."
"Business continuity features need to be added."
"There are some issues with the graphics and some software that is very complex."
"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."
"This solution is an open-source, free platform with paid support."
"It is free for everyone."
"The price is fair compared to others. But in our local market, it's a problem to get budget approval from management. That's why they are trying to get those products so we can give them the price benefit. But if you consider the international market or other products, it's sometimes better than their price."
"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."
