It is a very complex solution with many different functionalities. Prism Element is for enterprises of any size. In Prism Pro or Prism Ultimate, the functionality is a bit locked to the company size and the IT infrastructure size. You don't always need a very big installation for a big business. I would advise others to use Prism Central because Prism Element does not have all the required management features that Prism Central has. I would recommend this solution for all organizations planning to build infrastructure for any size and change. It is easy for changes in size or functionality. I would rate Nutanix Prism a nine out of ten.

Nowadays, I recommend that people use Nutanix Prism. I have been using Nutanix for two years and feel that it is very good compared to VMware. I spent six years working with VMware and am more comfortable with Nutanix. They are very supportive. My only complaints about Nutanix are that downtime is required more often and the issue with resource limitations when clustering. I would rate this solution a nine out of ten.

My advice for anybody who is implementing Nutanix Prism is to use the hypervisor that comes with it because there is no reason to use another one. I would rate this solution a nine out of ten.

We're using the latest version of the solution. We're not a direct customer of Nutanix. We mostly handle support of the solution. I'm still learning about the resolution. I'm going through training manuals and picking up what I can. I'd rate the solution eight out of ten. Overall, it's been good. I'm still getting used to it though.

This is a great product, easy to deploy and very stable. Even if you are using VMware or Hyper V or AHV on Nutanix, it's very stable. I would rate this solution a nine out of 10.

We aren't using the latest version of the solution. It might be the latest minus one. The bank always goes for a minus version and not the latest version because of some compliance-related issues related to bank policies. I'd recommend the solution. It's quite good. As an alternative, VxRail is also a good option. I'd rate the solution nine out of ten. I'm very happy with this product. My workload is currently running on production on a Nutanix box, and it is working absolutely fine. There are no issues. It offers good performance and optimization. It's resilient.

Anyone considering the solution should give it a test run. Try it in your environment. Check if your applications or your credit systems are compatible. I would say to anyone who has the budget to go for it, it's a really good system. There is always space for improvement so I would rate the product a nine out of 10.

Three important things will minimize the number of people required to run your center. * Multi-Access Login. * Simplified Management. * System administration. I would also suggest going with Prism Pro. You will get more features, and with the Normal Nutanix Prism, you are getting limited features. I would rate this solution an eight out of ten.

I would advise others using VDI to add All-Flash clusters, so no ordinary disk, but All-Flash disks for performance. That's something I would suggest, but that is more specific for VDI environments. I would rate this product a nine out of 10.

On a scale of one to ten, I will rate this solution an eight. What I'd like to see in the next release, is for it to be open to other platforms. That would be great, because now it's only available on Mac, IBM and Dell. Perhaps wide-open hardware would be great. In the past we used to get alarms and an detector. Sometimes the messages you get from a problem doesn't point directly to the origin of the problem. So you have to elaborate some things for having a conclusion on what is failing. Perhaps they can improve this entire process, from beginning to the end, where you find a solution. In other words, being able to make the right decision faster.
