What do you think of Nutanix?

Primary Use Case Currently, we are using it for our VMware workstation. We use it to host our non-production servers. • Improvements to My Organization It has seamless expandability. • Valuable Features Their Google operating system is more mature, so their results are much better. • Room for Improvement I don't feel that I am receiving the performance which I am paying for. We should have something called micro segmentation inside the Nutanix box, which can be easily implemented. They should support more VM, which is not currently supported. • Customer Service and Technical Support The technical support is very good. • Initial Setup The initial setup was straightforward. • Pricing, License Cost and Setup The operating system is free.

It allows us to have a centralized location where we can put our files and distribute them among different applications. • Valuable Features We can have multiple systems within the same file system. The performance right now on the file system is better than NAS. • Use of Solution Three to five years. • Stability Issues Overall, the stability is pretty good. We do have some issues where Spectrum Scale does not work as expected. We have seen our Spectrum Scale servers go down unexpectedly, but because we have a cluster, it does not take out the entire organization. • Scalability Issues I do not think it is applicable. •...
