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 integrators Nutanix offers a solution which is highly standardized that can be deployed in very timely fashion compared to legacy three tier-, converged generation one- and even most competing hyper converged solutions. This... more»

What needs improvement?

Nutanix has the potential to replace most of today's traditional storage solutions. These are classic hybrid SAN arrays Filers, newer All-Flash Arrays

What is most valuable?

The level of statistical performance data it is able to report in real time is extremely useful. I can see what my VM’s hosts and guests are doing form a single pane of glass and identify issues before they would otherwise become apparent.

How has it helped my organization?

The simplicity Prism/AHV delivers over other hypervisor solutions has dramatically alleviated the workload of our IT department without taking away granular features.

What needs improvement?

Site-to-site replication needs some work. It’s not as feature rich for a disaster recovery implementation as I would like to see, but my understanding is that it is slated for improvement in near-future releases. DRS-like functionality is... more»

What is most valuable?

The most valuable features are Prism and Acropolis, as they simplified our jobs and give us the opportunity to lower operational costs without reducing the current day-to-day operation performance. We are using VMware 3-TIER architecture... more»

How has it helped my organization?

As opposed to before, the Nutanix platform allows us to pay as we grow instead starting with a large scale. Management seems to like this idea, as it will save us from overspending the budget. We can improve IT utilization and reduce costs by... more»

What needs improvement?

We're thinking about hosting SAP HANA on the Nutanix platform, but we are still unsure about the path as SAP still has not certified Nutanix to host SAP HANA yet. Nutanix should make SAP a close partner and certify their product with SAP so... more»

What is most valuable?

* One-Click upgrades * Software defined storage * The capacity savings One click upgrades are an absolute godsend. Being able to upgrade our entire cluster with the click of a button during business hours with zero downtime has made managing... more»

How has it helped my organization?

Processes that used to take hours to complete have been drastically improved due to the nature of Nutanix. Data locality means things complete faster and our users now have more time to complete their work rather than having to wait for a... more»

What needs improvement?

Given all the amazing features, there is room for improvement around the support ability of different hypervisors. Sure, Nutanix now supports four hypervisors but they are not all at feature parity. If you want all the benefits of Nutanix,... more»

What is most valuable?

* Very easy management (e.g. daily tasks and also major upgrades) * Simple and fast to implement as a partner * Very mature and stable with outstanding Nutanix support if needed (we are a L1 and L2 support partner as well) * Potential to replace 80-90% of all customer use cases we see in Switzerland

How has it helped my organization?

We can troubleshoot customer issues (e.g. crashes, performance issues etc.) very quickly and efficiently since we know exactly how the infrastructure should behave and what performance values are to be expected. Nutanix delivers full visibility down to a single virtual disk (e.g. a VMDK file) and every single hardware component. Predefined health checks are... more»
