Has better platform management cost savings and better control and maintenance of resources

Pros and Cons

  • "In the beginning, I saw the product's user manual, but when installing and managing it in a practical way, I could see that it is very friendly and reliable at the interface level, at the same time very specific, it shows characteristics of the resources never observed at least by me on similar platforms"
  • "I consider it a very complete platform, for now, I believe it is very good. It could be advanced and more updated over time. I would like to see updates like the creation of basic applications for monitoring through tables, telephones, external updates, sending manuals, or informational brochures by mail to go hand in hand with the platform and its updates."

What is our primary use case?

El producto es muy estable, también proporciona una interfaz extremadamente intuitiva, pero al mismo tiempo logra un nivel de control sobre todos los recursos. Tuvimos muchos problemas de monitoreo de plataforma ya que trabajamos con un gran volumen en términos de equipos de servicio, esto se debe a que somos una empresa cuya función principal es proporcionar servicios a los usuarios finales a nivel de soporte, requisitos y fallas. Por lo tanto, es de vital importancia mantener un mejor control de nuestro centro de datos. Una vez más, menciono que es un producto 100% recomendado.

How has it helped my organization?

Como una mejora, me gustaría ver una variedad de idiomas y un poco más simplificado el proceso inicial de conexión de red, a pesar del poco tiempo que tengo administrando esta plataforma en mi organización, considero que realiza el trabajo especificado en el Para los requisitos de la empresa para la que trabajo, también tengo poca experiencia en el área, por lo que recomiendo esta herramienta como el primer paso para un gran nivel tecnológico de conocimiento, mis colegas y yo estamos felices de haber adquirido Prism Pro.

What is most valuable?

Tiene una mejor gestión de la plataforma de ahorro de costos y un mejor control y mantenimiento de los recursos. No puedo pensar en ninguna mejora en este momento, pero el soporte es de primera categoría. Hemos tenido muchos problemas para actualizar desde el principio. Al principio, vi el manual de usuario del producto, pero al instalarlo y administrarlo de una manera práctica, pude ver que es muy amigable y confiable a nivel de interfaz, al mismo tiempo muy específico, muestra características de los recursos nunca observado al menos por mí en plataformas similares

What needs improvement?

Considere que es una plataforma interesante y muy amigable que permite una mayor eficiencia de gestión, permite un mejor escenario de monitoreo. Sin embargo, sabemos que la tecnología avanza día a día, una buena estrategia sería crear una aplicación gratuita, el usuario puede estar aún más interesado en la plataforma, puede controlar el monitoreo a través de teléfonos y enviar manuales o folletos de información por correo para ir a mano junto con la plataforma y sus actualizaciones, además de las actualizaciones realizadas por el monitor en cualquier lugar donde estemos encriptados.

Provides a powerful set of administrative tools with an intuitive interface

Pros and Cons

  • "The administration components are the most useful since, with them, we have been able to win and perform preventive measures in the administration of the hyper-converged Nutanix infrastructure."
  • "We would like to be able to provision virtual machines at the computing level, as that would give us an added value against the competition."

What is our primary use case?

Our primary use case is cloud computing for government clients of the territory, which has all its services in the cloud.

The main benefit is to improve and increase the portfolio of products in the Corporation. The slogan of our cloud is hyper convergent, and the results have been satisfactory.

What is most valuable?

The administration components are the most useful since, with them, we have been able to win and perform preventive measures in the administration of the hyper-converged Nutanix infrastructure.

It has a very useful and intuitive interface. Administrators trust it to perform preventive diagnoses on the platform, which helps in the administration of the infrastructure. We have been able to gain a lot of experience in all aspects of administration, which has made us a competitive organization in the Cloud Computing market.

All of the tools that Nutanix brings have supported us to improve the service provided to our customers.

What needs improvement?

We would like to be able to provision virtual machines at the computing level, as that would give us an added value against the competition. Being an infrastructure free of licensing and being able to count on the over-provisioning of resources would be helpful.

Has enabled us to easily manage multiple clusters in multiple locations

Pros and Cons

  • "It has allowed us to easily manage multiple clusters in multiple locations through Prism. We have multiple sites that we use to manage and run VMware at which could be a bit cumbersome with Vsphere. Since we made the migration to Nutanix we now only have active servers at three locations, and we can manage them through Prism Central with ease."
  • "We have had our fair share of issues while upgrading early on, but the process now is working flawlessly."

What is our primary use case?

We are currently running a pair of production at both our home office and our DR center as well as a dev cluster. Between our prod/dev/fileshare we are now running around 32ish total nodes, and we have only had one drive failure in 4-5 years of running. The level of support that Nutanix provides and the timely response is another great attribute of Nutanix. We now are sitting right where we need to in regards to sizing, function, and design to fit our organization. We will continue to evolve and build with Nutanix.

How has it helped my organization?

It has allowed us to easily manage multiple clusters in multiple locations through Prism. We have multiple sites that we use to manage and run VMware at which could be a bit cumbersome with Vsphere. Since we made the migration to Nutanix we now only have active servers at three locations, and we can manage them through Prism Central with ease. If you can't see information in one spot you are going to overlook something that might fail, but with Prism we don't have that issue.                                 

What is most valuable?

The one-click upgrades and single-window management through Prism are the two greatest advantages for us.                                                                                                                

What needs improvement?

I can't think of any improvements at this time, but the support is top-notch. We have had our fair share of issues while upgrading early on, but the process now is working flawlessly. Between the initial POC to rolling it into production, everything has been smooth, and we have also added ABS & AFS to our infrastructure as well.                                                        

For how long have I used the solution?

We have been running Nutanix Prism Pro for about four years now.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

Stability is not going to be matched by anything else on the market.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

Extremely easy to add nodes to the clusters.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

We wanted away from the licensing cost from VMware.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

Be prepared to have time on your hands after deployment.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

Just a POC with Nutanix.

What other advice do I have?

None at this time.
