What is most valuable?

Some years ago when we started working with Nutanix the solution was essentially a stable, user friendly hyper converged solution offering a less future rich version of what is now called the distributed storage fabric. This is what competing… more»

How has it helped my organization?

As a system integrator, Nutanix offers a highly standardized solution which can be deployed in timely fashion compared to legacy three-tier, generation one converged, and most competing hyper-converged solutions. This allows us to move quickly… more»

What needs improvement?

Nutanix has the potential to replace most of today's traditional storage solutions. These are classic hybrid SAN arrays (dual and multi controller), NAS Filers, newer All-Flash Arrays as well as any object, big data etc. use cases. For capacity… more»

What needs improvement?

I think that there are several areas that they can improve slightly, including the mail servers, the application servers, and perhaps even the… more»

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

The licensing cost is on a yearly basis. There are a lot of features included with Nutanix that cost a lot with other companies.

If you previously used a different solution, which one did you use and why did you switch?

Prior to this solution, we used VMware on Intel technology. We also have IBM IT Infrastructure with Power technology. We switched to Nutanix… more»

What is most valuable?

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. It has… more»

What needs improvement?

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. Otherwise, I never had to call tech support. I actually met up with… more»

What other advice do I have?

I would advise someone considering this solution to go with it. We deal with multiple vendors. We're actually partners with a lot of vendors. Most of the enterprise vendors are in the top 10 but I'll say that this is the best that I've worked… more»

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

Setup cost is minor, pricing is quite a bit (we have a 7-node-cluster for about 450K EUR with 2 vGPU-nodes for Citrix) but… more»

If you previously used a different solution, which one did you use and why did you switch?

Traditional storage on NetApp with ESX-Blades from Dell. We switched because of the simpler setup and easier scalability.

What other advice do I have?

Always check compatibility matrix before you upgrade to get a clear view what comes after your upgrade. I recently found… more»
