Pros
"The interface is very good, and quite user-friendly.""Nutanix is good for new implementations on the VM side.

I use almost every technology they provide.""The most valuable feature is the integration between storage and compute services.""Nutanix AHV is very scalable. It can go to unlimited nodes.""It has a vs switch for the people who know Linux, in case it's easier for them to use AHV than it is to use VMware.""This solution is very stable and it has been running for the last three months, with no issues.""Simplicity is the most valuable feature."

It can run on a lot of different types of hardware. Creating virtual machines with it is really easy.""The most valuable feature of this solution is migration.""The initial setup was really straightforward and easy.""Ease of use, HA, internal 100gbps Virtio network, built-in backup (don't pay $1200 Veeam licence), support for multi-monitors on multiple VMs in KVM, no need to RDP in the VMs to do your stuff (Win, Linux and Mac with SPICE and using 6 screens here (11520*2160)."

"This solution needs a more flexible and efficient backup solution in the dashboard.""The solution should include some features that can help with converting raw files into different formats. It should offer better management around raw files.""I would like to see more monitoring in the next release of this solution.""The solution needs a better billing system.""We had some challenges with management including volume and storage management. Setting it up properly and making it work, specifically shared storage between the virtual machines, is difficult.""If this solution could import directly from OVS format then it would make migration much easier.""The virtualization can be better.""The Windows drivers could be easier (unlike manually installing Ballon, QEMU and optionally SPICE, VIRTio, etc.)"
