Nutanix AHV Room for Improvement

At the application level, if you wanted to change your hypervisor from VMware or another to AHV then there is a limitation in that you need to redeploy the whole application. For example, let's say that you are running Oracle ERP or Oracle Financial Business Suite, and it is on VMware. Then you switch to AHV and you migrate the virtual machine, it will be there, but all of the links that were created in the previous hypervisor will be broken. So, what Nutanix recommends is that you redeploy the application. This is quite a bit of work. For example, the ERP requires a lot of time to implement and get into synch and get running smoothly. The technical support for this solution needs to be improved in terms of response time. This solution should offer more orchestration and automation as we see in VMware. They can do more. I would like to see more use cases from Nutanix on future trend technologies such as IoT, data analytics, big data, smart cities, and more. They need to do more R&D with respect to these new technologies. This would make it easy for us to understand whether they are capable of such functionality, or not. View full review »

This solution would benefit from the inclusion of an option for visualization of shared media in a graphical fashion. I am waiting for a better implementation of Nutanix 3 because I like VDI. I would like the ability to move the virtual machine to a storage container. Also, we would like to be able to implement storage-saving features like deduplication and compression. I would like the ability to pass USB devices directly through to the VM. One of our customers has asked for this, and at this time it is not possible. I don't want to go out of support by implementing this myself. View full review »
