What is most valuable?

Nutanix Prism is awesome. It's a simple upgrade. There is no downtime and all. There is never any worry about upgrading the solution. It's a very good product. The Clone and Snapshot features are two of the most valuable aspects of the solution for our organization. Rather than simply one-click… more»

What needs improvement?

The solution could be a bit more user-friendly. The dashboard and configuration should be much easier to use. The migration from Nutanix to other platforms, like VMware and hypervisor, needs improvement. That is a difficult task right now, because we cannot run the two separately. It's a bit tricky.

What other advice do I have?

We aren't using the latest version of the solution. It might be the latest minus one. The bank always goes for a minus version and not the latest version because of some compliance-related issues related to bank policies. I'd recommend the solution. It's quite good. As an alternative, VxRail is also… more»

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

Before choosing this solution we looked avSAN technology and HPE SimpliVity. We were also looking at Dell VxRail as well.

What is most valuable?

It's helpful that you can create virtual machines using Prism, you can upgrade and replicate the firmware between two different sites using Prism Element, it's not only for monitors. The duplication and compression are good features because they also work for data in a hybrid solution. Without that, compression and duplication require a whole flash stick which increases the cost. With Nutanix it… more»

What needs improvement?

The solution could be improved if you combined Nutanix with AHV, because when you install Prism to manage AHV, there are a lot of commands. It might be better to integrate the commands with Prism and that would enable Prism to manage AHV. This is not currently in the command line.

What other advice do I have?

This is a great product, easy to deploy and very stable. Even if you are using VMware or Hyper V or AHV on Nutanix, it's very stable. I would rate this solution a nine out of 10.

What is most valuable?

The features I find most valuable, is the integration between data centers.

How has it helped my organization?

The programs is very functional in case of a failure, because snapshots are taken every 30 minutes, and we also have synchronization between our two data centers. So whenever we have a failure, we have another data center that is responds for every machine we have.

What needs improvement?

Perhaps the interface can be more intuitive. It's easy, but it is very slow at the beginning.

What other advice do I have?

On a scale of one to ten, I will rate this solution an eight. What I'd like to see in the next release, is for it to be open to other platforms. That would be great, because now it's only available on Mac, IBM and Dell. Perhaps wide-open hardware would be great. In the past we used to get alarms and… more»

What is most valuable?

Everything has been valuable, without a doubt the server is self-managed with Prism in an efficient way, it solves possible logical errors to maintain production without interruptions, it's great. A professional who is starting his career in this environment or scope would be very easy because… more»

How has it helped my organization?

With this solution, the company stood out in its operations 100% for the reliability of the equipment, the speed, and the comfort of the base user to handle the applications. This solution gave us agility and security for the operating personnel, effective backup in the event of disasters… more»

What needs improvement?

It seems to me that everything is in gear as it should be, every time an update or new package appears it never ceases to amaze me as it helps us with a 100% stable technology, to add something would be to have clear the new needs of the human being. Each era every year, new economies arise and ways… more»

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

The evaluation of other options was not carried out, we have that tool and it had to be used 100%.

What is most valuable?

The GUI and the dashboard are impressive. I like that you can modify the GUI and the dashboard as per your requirements. The gateway is a hypervisor and with their hyper-converged platform, customers are free to choose any hardware or comparable hardware.

What needs improvement?

If I am comparing it with VMware, it is still not as compatible. I am not comfortable in working with the automation in Nutanix Prism or the SAN side. The automation needs to be improved, as there are several challenges.

What other advice do I have?

Three important things will minimize the number of people required to run your center. * Multi-Access Login. * Simplified Management. * System administration. I would also suggest going with Prism Pro. You will get more features, and with the Normal Nutanix Prism, you are getting limited features. I would rate this solution an eight out of ten.

What is most valuable?

The most valuable features are micro-segmentation, automation, and central management between sites. By using virtualization, we are saving on the cost of hardware.

What needs improvement?

I would like to have some cluster management tools included.

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

Compared to VMware, the price of this solution is great.

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

We are currently in the process of migrating from VMware to Nutanix.

What other advice do I have?

Overall, this product is a good choice. You get a lot of features at a lower price. I would rate this solution a nine out of ten.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We were looking into using Oracle PCA because one of our main objectives is to have a disaster recovery site on the cloud. This means that what we have installed, and whatever workloads are running… more»

What is most valuable?

The most valuable feature would be performance. Since we began using Nutanix the performance for virtual desktops is much better. It's easy to manage Nutanix with no downtime during periods of maintenance. There has also been a big improvement in the dashboard which is now very easy compared to earlier solutions.

What needs improvement?

The main area where an improvement could be made would be the pricing. Aside from that, it's a very good product. An additional feature that could be included would be to make an easy connection to closed systems such as Azure.

What other advice do I have?

I would advise others using VDI to add All-Flash clusters, so no ordinary disk, but All-Flash disks for performance. That's something I would suggest, but that is more specific for VDI environments. I would rate this product a nine out of 10.

What is most valuable?

The centralized management of Nutanix Prism is the best feature. I can upgrade the hardware and I can upgrade the software from there. So that's a good feature.

What needs improvement?

I think that the Nutanix Prism Pro the terms it uses, it's not very user-friendly. Those terms should be a little more user-friendly. What terms they use should be more user-friendly.

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

Nutanix Prism pricing is higher than other products. They sell hyper-convergence as a bundled product. That's why I bought Nutanix. If I'm going with another hypervisor apart from ASV, the price goes higher. That's where the problem is.

What other advice do I have?

I would rate Nutanix Prism Pro at an eight out of ten.
