"I would like to see them do an enhancement to the application monitoring. A lot of other products do better application monitoring so they should do some improvements to the application monitoring.""Pricing is too high relative to how many devices we use. The price list is not linear to number of devices.""I would like to see better integration with switches so that you can see what is connected to each port, what the traffic is, and have a network map automatically generated.""The pricing for this solution has gone up quite recently, which has led some of our customers to buy an alternative product.""One of the biggest things that made us start to look at another product is we're not able to have an end to end monitoring from a user perspective throughout the system and back to the user. All the monitoring is from inside out, we need something that also can give us from outside in.""Adding on services increases the cost and on the version we have there is no option for ATM monitoring.""I think there are a few bugs now. Although they give some resolution for this, we cannot share the network remotely because of our company policy.""Integrations with other devices. I want to have a product that has full integration with my active directory so I can track user activity. I want to track my complete user activity, so I'm looking for a product to implement in the near future, which will have full integration with my network and active directory users. It became very difficult to track user activity."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"A lot of my customers complain about the price of renewals, so I think that this can be improved.""Compared to VMware, the price of this solution is great.""Nutanix Prism is priced better than some of the competing solutions.""This product is cheaper than using VMware."

More Nutanix Prism Pricing and Cost Advice »

"Pricing is reasonable compared to other products.""I'm not sure, but it's expensive. We don't pay any additional fees.""The choice of version depends on the number of points, or devices, that you want to monitor, and this makes the product expensive.""The pricing can be on the expensive side when considering competing products.""There are some subscription charges that are quite heavy. I need to pay for support every year and these charges can be quite expensive. Aside from the initial cost for the tool, you need to pay additionally for support."
