The fact that there is only one interface to deploy a complete solution for maximum storage is fantastic.

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.

As of now, Acropolis and VMware cannot talk to each other. Until we have some kind of interface, it would be much better for Nutanix if they built an interface which can talk. Otherwise, if I have a VMware stack and I already have a Nutanix stack, I create containers, I create clusters on VMware, I create clusters on Nutanix. All of these clusters cannot talk to each other. Then it has to be then subverted as a parallel execution. What happens then is that I have to work in two different environments within my data center. Practically, they are two different data centers but physically and logically, they are one. If they cannot talk to each other that creates a lot of issues. That is something which Nutanix has to develop because for Nutanix it is very simple. For example, Oracle is using a function called GoldenGate. They have a feature called GoldenGate which allows them to talk to various different environments which must really help.

One thing I've noticed is that, when you do a shift from VMware to Nutanix, it opens the setup of the VM that's currently running. If people from another site double click on it, it opens the VM instead of the setup of the unit. So I would suggest that this could perhaps be switched. That is so far the only change I would like. I would like it if they could fix the instance where you double click on a VM and it opens the VM instead of the setup. That's the only thing that's a major bother to me.

I would have liked it if Nutanix were a hardware as well as a software platform.

Could have better visibility with the main OEM backup integrators.

If we can have certified compatibility with other companies, such as Oracle, then it would let us know that they function correctly together.

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.

There is a lot of functionality in Prism Central, but sometimes you want to see those features in Prism Element.

If they can simplify the software slightly for the installation, that would make all the difference.
