This product has a lot of room to improve: Competitors have a much larger feature-set, stability during...
SRM capabilities for replication have been proven reliable and very useful for our organization.
It has seamless expandability.
Their Google operating system is more mature, so their results are much better.
Prism Central allows managing the cluster from a single pane of glass, and it allows a deeper dive into the solution.
They have one of the best technical supports in my experience.
Simplified management: It provides us more time to work on other tasks.
Nutanix has several unique capabilities to ensure linear scalability.
Single click actions is definitely the most important. They were not even aware that they wanted this.
Integration with vCenter WebClient services and Cisco UCS Ecosystem, as it gives a Single Pane Of Management which lowers administration-cost (improving TCO).
We would like to see it support other systems outside of the compute stack from which it was built.
They should support more VM, which is not currently supported.
I would like better integration of XenServer into the AOS and Prism Central.
Make it easier to manage.
Reduce its power consumption.
There is a need is to be able to consume Nutanix storage from outside the cluster for other, non-Nutanix workloads.
Native File-Services are under heavy development and Container Services just came out.
Nutanix now supports four hypervisors but they are not all at feature parity.
Stability during installations/upgrades is a big issue.
Pricing and Cost Advice
I don't feel that I am receiving the performance which I am paying for.
Work close with your InfraTeam and discuss with Nutanix the best way to achieve sizing and price that are right for you.
Licensing depends on the features needed.
Extra features should not be so expensive. We would love to be able to use or even just try some of the extra features without having to buy them. Buying those features is just as expensive as buying vSphere licenses, so the cost savings is nullified.
Setup cost is minor, pricing is quite a bit (we have a 7-node-cluster for about 450K EUR with 2 vGPU-nodes for Citrix) but that includes hardware, software, and support.
While cost may seem higher than your traditional 3-tier architecture, you need to look at the bigger picture. You're not just buying hardware here. You're buying a complete environment.
I know Nutanix and VxRail have similar prices and licenses. Nutanix is a go-ahead if AHV is used as hypervisor because it is already embedded in the price.
The basic license that comes with the box allows basic virtualization features but advanced automation features would require an upgrade of licenses.
