What needs improvement?

If you are working with the OS you need help and other connectors to get more information. When you start logging, you just log, but you need to see what you can do with the log to start working with it. Once you start actually working with… more »

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

When you start to virtualize things it gets very expensive. The licensing fees depend on how big the company is. If you are a larger company then you have a better contract with a better price. The price is different for a small company… more »

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

We had another product but it was a bit too complicated to use. I work with VRealize Operations Suite also. All of the Cloud Suite. It was easy for me because the customer is German, the owner is German, and I work with the Swedish part of… more »

What other advice do I have?

If you start working with this solution then you will know what you can achieve with this product. It's better to have a large product to see what you can achieve with it because, quite often, they don't even know what they want from it and… more »

What is most valuable?

Reporting features in the console is so self-explanatory that even a non-IT person in the office can also understand it. Our finance users have access to this console and they will get the consumption… more »

How has it helped my organization?

First of all, the product is very stable. We did not see any breakages happen due to product misbehavior. Thanks to multiple automations and self-explanatory dashboards, the overall operations load on… more »

What needs improvement?

From an AHV point of view, I look for the feature of setting a limit for the memory allocation for individual VMs. This will help in providing higher memory to VMs for users who always ask or more and… more »

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

This will be a better fit in the age of hybrid cloud and with Nutanix adding more and more products in its offering, soon Nutanix will become a complete package to run IT. So it will be easy to scale… more »

What is most valuable?

The reporting features are great for our business and managers, It takes a lot of the guesswork out. The monthly reports come complete with graphs and summaries, it's really helpful.

What needs improvement?

The threshold could be easier to configure. I would like to see more automation and integration with their own backups. Currently, you can stop and start a backup, but it would be nice if you could initiate a reinstall using Veeam ONE.

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

We got the Veeam Enterprise Suite, which comes with Veeam ONE and Enterprise Manager. I'm not exactly sure what the pricing is.

What other advice do I have?

Veeam ONE is a great product. My main advice would definitely be to do a complete overview of the setup, and accurately design the database because otherwise, it will grow out of control. On a scale from one to ten, I would give this solution a rating of eight.

What is most valuable?

Since it is an open-source software, the integration with other open-source components is seamless. If you're going in, it all depends on which stack you're selecting. If you're selecting open stack, if you want to use microservices, or you want to integrate Kubernetes Docker with Red Hat, this… more »

What needs improvement?

The complexity of the solution is a bit high in comparison to VMware. The solution should be made more user-friendly with plug-and-play functionality. It will help companies adopt it quicker.

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

We also use VMware. VMware is very user-friendly and the integration is seamless. Red Hat has good integration with various other components and products as well. The complexity is also higher than VMware's.

What other advice do I have?

We're a Red Hat partner. I work as a Principal Solutions Architect. I'd advise other organizations that, before selecting a product, they must finalize their business department. They should only make a call on the solution if all of their requirements get fulfilled - including compliance. Various… more »
