VxRail Valuable Features

Engineer at a legal firm with 501-1,000 employees
The most valuable feature is the fact that the storage is integrated with the VxRail so I don't have to go in between systems when I have to monitor my storage. The second valuable feature would be the space. Because they're all combined I save a lot of space when it comes to the rack. I was able to consolidate two racks into one and the one is only used in about half a rack. The storage and the VMware servers are all in the same infrastructure. View full review »

There's user integration with VMware so you don't have to load VMware on top of it and it works right out of the box. There's good integration between VMware as my hypervisor and the hardware and it is specifically to size. You don't have to worry too much about the hardware and you don't have to work on integrating a storage device. We instead have this as an all-in-one solution and everything is available as a box.

The cover points feature in VxRail is remarkable. It's unique. It has an intervention failover system as well as an automatic failover system, reaching clusters existing in VxRail. This makes all files act as a single file with a large and huge resource, and, of course, with customized administration, configuration, and resources. It provides automatic failover for redundancy and data recovery. View full review »

I like the managed updates. They are really nice in VxRail. Everything comes packaged and the updates are much easier than with other solutions that I've had to work with. The fact that it's presenting you validated the design. Anything through the update manager will be guaranteed to work as VMware is integrated into the hardware side of it as well to validate that the patches that they're providing will work. There's less risk there. The storage, the hyper-converged storage, is a nice boon. We have a sort of isolated storage from our main sandbox so that we can put things on there if the sandbox is having problems or it's basically another fault domain. It's another place where things can be protected. View full review »

Information Technology Solutions Architect at a comms service provider with 501-1,000 employees
For me, the most valuable feature is in relation to the software updates. Updated software is very critical as I cannot risk making a mistake. To avoid this, VxRail provides me with pre-tested updates that can be implemented with little interruption. Since we are talking about banking, oil, and gas, there's no need for automating virtual machine creation. View full review »

The installation was really easy to perform. The most valuable aspect on VxRail is the one-click update where they are doing the updates all at once for the drivers, buyers, ID reg, and for the VMS. In one click it's running. It's great. The performance is very good. The update process is very convenient. View full review »

It gives us tons of flexibility. We can create new machines, then destroy them if they don't work out. We test a lot of use cases that may or may not play out. We can build all types of scenarios into virtual machines that we may or may not use. If we don't use them, we just turn them off, no using up resources. View full review »

It is truly a hyper-converged infrastructure, so everything is there together. We normally go with either a two node or three node infrastructure, which is nice and small. Everything is there: The storage, the network, and it is all in one package, so it's easily deployable in a very quick fashion. View full review »

For us working with Nutanix in VxRail, it's actually the support that comes from the local partners and local distributors that's valuable. Using the VxRail system is pretty easy for most of our in-house technical support, and the training was modeled for that project. That's mainly where we got our expertise in supporting VxRail. The partner is very responsive and very helpful to us. View full review »
