Quotes From Members

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

Pros
"The interface is very good, and quite user-friendly.""Nutanix is good for new implementations on the VM side. It's very good for disaster recovery and final storage.""In terms of features, Acropolis is a good virtualization manager and that it is on-premise. 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."

"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.

Cons
"The technical support for this solution needs to be improved in terms of response time.""The solution should work to improve its stability.""Lacks integration with the cloud or other solutions.""In the next release of this solution, I would like to see support for containerization.""There is no web interface for AHV.""There is no web interface with AHV.""In terms of improvement, I think that they could have more partnerships with providers.""When we need to share, publish, or encrypt something, we still need to perform it using the command line."

"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

Nutanix makes infrastructure invisible, elevating IT to focus on the applications and services that power their business. The Nutanix enterprise cloud platform leverages web-scale engineering and consumer-grade design to natively converge compute, virtualization and storage into a resilient, software-defined solution with rich machine intelligence.
