Quotes From Members

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

Pros
"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."

"One of the most valuable features of this solution is the popularity of the OS.""The solution is a great all-round product. The virtualization is especially good.""Red Hat is the most stable system.""Technically, the main reason why I'm using Red Hat is because of its stability.""The most valuable feature of this solution is the support portal.""Stability and speed are the most valuable aspects.""The price is the solution's most valuable aspect. It's much cheaper than, for example, VMware.""The solution makes migration easy."

Cons
"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."

"It would be better to have more patches, especially kernel-level updates, live and online so that we can keep the business up and running during this period.""The solution could use network virtualization.""The Administration of the Oracle database and the SAP ERP needs improvement.""I heard that there are big differences between Red Hat eight and seven, but it's still quite difficult for me to judge it. I found it a bit more difficult to manage than version seven, which was much easier. In term of features, though, it is still not yet clear which is better. I have no clear idea of which features need to be changed at the moment.""Configuring the network interfaces is much better in Ubuntu and should be improved.""It lags behind in that you need to go to something like Fedora to get all the extra bells and whistles.""In comparison to VMware, this solution isn't as stable. We're testing it right now, and we're not trusting the stability of the product.""The support is tricky in a few places. We're facing some challenges within Malaysia where we don't really have the system integrators available who can provide extended support. When we need personnel on-site, we can't get them."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"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."

More Nutanix Acropolis AOS Pricing and Cost Advice »

"This is an open-source solution.""I would say the price is acceptable.""We are using the free version of Red Hat.""I believe we pay on a yearly basis.""We buy a license for commercial use, and we also use the free editions.""We have to pay extra for vulnerability and fault tolerance.""The solution does not require licencing but a subscription is necessary, which is very affordable."
