Definitely Nutanix for vSAN is on our shortlist. ACI and NSX, like everybody else. They're the only two players in this space. View full review »

Nutanix certainly is a big competitor. Also, SimpliVity is another big one of those competitors in terms of the software-defined and hyper-converged aspect of this environment. Whilst looking for a vendor, a deep and trusted relationship with that vendor is very important for us. View full review »

We had HPE in there but a lot of our hardware is HPE. So, we looked at just VM and HPE. The reason why we ended up choosing VM is the reputation in the industry; for the last twenty years, VM has been there. Licensing is the most important criteria while selecting a vendor.
