We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"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."
"The most valuable feature of this solution is its scalability."
"If you buy the solution for its specific purpose it will work well."
"The most valuable feature is the performance, as well as how you manage performance on the system."
"The dashboard is such that you don't need to be a storage expert to administer it."
"The system efficiency is excellent overall."
"I would say in terms of architecture and in terms of functionality, the product is quite good."
"SolidFire provides seamless performance across your storage system when you need to scale up. Other storage systems do not do that."
"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 would be improved if it were made to be more compatible with other products."
"They could make the mNode more user-friendly. Now you need to configure and add nodes by CLI and it’s not really easy to manage. If they created a web interface to do the management of the mNode, that would be great!."
"The technical support is really bad and has to be improved."
"The inclusion of more protocols and interfaces would make it easier to integrate with other products."
"The user interface needs to be improved. Much of the client feedback involves comments such as "Oh, it's hard to navigate through.""
"You don't have business continuity with SolidFire. I think it could be a nice feature to have in the future."
"SolidFire should start from two nodes instead of the four nodes. That's the only thing. In a lot of solutions, we have to use four nodes, that's the better thing. But as a starting point, two is better. That's why their starting point is expensive."
"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."
"The price of this solution is more expensive than others."
