Most Helpful Review
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
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.
Everything is core centralized on the UI.
The solution offers impressive performance.
Nutanix has several unique capabilities to ensure linear scalability.
Karbon is a must-have as it drastically simplifies the deployment of Kubernetes.
The fact that there is only one interface to deploy a complete solution for maximum storage is fantastic.
Best features are around data locality, compression, and deduplication.
The most valuable feature would be the ease of deployment. That is the most significant feature for me because I've worked with multiple vendors and it's always been very complicated to install the software and get everything running.
The most valuable feature is that it is centrally managed, as it is quite easy for our customers to manage everything, end-to-end.
The most valuable features are reliability and high availability.
It's an integrated box Mac solution, so it's a plug and play. The deployment and build is pre-made and ready to deploy. It makes it easy to apply.
The component integration means I don't have to worry about technology mismatches.
Pricing and varieties of options could be better.
Could have better visibility with the main OEM backup integrators.
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.
There is a need is to be able to consume Nutanix storage from outside the cluster for other, non-Nutanix workloads.
In the licensing, it needs to be clear about features because it is not clear whether Flow is integrated or not.
They have offered some new features that I have not deployed so I assume that these issues might have been addressed already, but, at my time there was a networking problem.
We could always use a performance upgrade, or simplified management.
If they can simplify the software slightly for the installation, that would make all the difference.
With respect to the technical support, there is room for improvement.
In the next release, I would like to see a smaller footprint in the data center and have improvements to disk performance.
The user control could be more advanced. They should work to improve this in future releases.
The integration with other vendors' products needs to be looked at. It's not as flexible as we would like it to be.
Pricing and Cost Advice
Pricing varies greatly between license and editions.
They should lower the price. If they did they would fall into a more competitive market because the price does scare a lot of potential customers away when they get the quote.
There are a lot of features included with Nutanix that cost a lot with other companies.
I don't feel that I am receiving the performance which I am paying for.
Vblock is priced at a premium because people don't want the headache of managing and deploying different products.
The paid support for Vblock is expensive.
I think the pricing is on the higher end of the spectrum. There could be some adjustments that could be made there. Regarding licensing, watch compatibility with external products that you run on Vblock. It has got to be properly architected, otherwise, you will run into licensing issues.
