We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"It should scale far beyond our needs. I don't think we will ever hit the edge of it."
"I think it is a very stable product."
"The Active IQ feature is a productive mechanism that automatically collects reports and users' statuses."
"Data efficiency is the most valuable feature because of the dedupe and compression."
"The most valuable feature is the ability to do QoS."
"We have SQL clusters across the United States. It has sped up our IOPS and made it a lot easier for users."
"The most valuable features are the low latency and high-performance."
"The most valuable features are high performance and encryption. It also provides aggregate level dedupe."
"This solution is good for virtualization and meets the need for CPU and RAM requirements."
"The solution is very easy to troubleshoot. It's one of the most valuable features. It also doesn't take long to deploy and normally it comes with a three-year warranty."
"Fewer features is not necessarily a negative as it leads to simpler operation and lower price."
"It has solid performance and provides data locality."
"It is a good solution and it is easy to work on their platform."
"It consolidates our servers, and improves our electricity consumption and cooling as well."
"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."
"Best features are around data locality, compression, and deduplication."
"The fact that there is only one interface to deploy a complete solution for maximum storage is fantastic."
"I definitely find the reduced power consumption very valuable."
"The most valuable features are its ease of use and its good performance."
"We only had a few upgrade issues."
"I've had a few cases where support wasn't able to answer the question or they took quite a while."
"A while ago, they performed quite slowly."
"Implementation needs to be improved."
"I would like to see more frequent updates at a faster pace."
"There needs to be compatibility with upgraded applications. We don't want the system to be upgraded, but not have backwards compatible to existing applications."
"I would like to see aggregate level encryption in the next release. This is critical."
"I would like them to roll in global monitoring instead of having to buy another product for it."
"In the next release, I would like to see support for Hyper-converged infrastructure."
"Usually, when a part fails, we have to replace it and it takes a while. It would be better if the part could be available locally here in Kenya so we don't have to wait so long to repair the solution."
"The features are limited."
"I would like to see a fuller integration with the public cloud. It would help the user enter the hybrid cloud infrastructure."
"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."
"If we can have certified compatibility with other companies, such as Oracle, then it would let us know that they function correctly together."
"The GUI for this solution needs improvement."
"If they can simplify the software slightly for the installation, that would make all the difference."
"We could always use a performance upgrade, or simplified management."
"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."
"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."
Pricing and Cost Advice
"I would like the pricing to be cheaper."
"Our space savings through dedupe and compression is over 50 percent, so we are saving. I think our 8080s has 20TBs. We are saving at least 10TBs and that's over 50 percent of the capacity that we're using."
"Always consider whether you can afford the solution."
"Our total cost of ownership (TCO) has decreased by 40 percent."
"I am able to store two times more data than what I'm purchasing, which affects the way funds are being utilized."
"Disk level encryption is already in the solution, but it is very costly. Its pricing should come down."
"From an application standpoint, we have seen a lot of return investment on the speeds and responsiveness of the actual storage."
"The total cost, the pricing of it, has gone up quite a bit."
"The pricing for this solution is good compared to HP or Dell EMC."
"The pricing is fair and low compared to other products in this category."
"Their technical support is really good. They have been very helpful."
"There are a lot of features included with Nutanix that cost a lot with other companies."
"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."
"Pricing varies greatly between license and editions."
"Our licensing fee on the total setup up was about R900 000."
"I think it's cheaper than VMware in terms of cost."
"AHV is free! This is a great feature that should be taken advantage of."
