The life cycle management or LCM feature is the most complicated. It takes really long and is unpredictable for our use cases. They should provide more detailed information about the kind of LCM to go for, various errors, and different kinds of tasks. For analytics for certain configurations, we require more details with the report. Sometimes, not all elements are present for support, management, and configuration. For troubleshooting, it would be very easy and useful if we can analyze log files directly from Prism, that is, not from the command line but directly from Prism.

The only issue with Nutanix is that when you want to take a snapshot, you have to power down and then back up, which creates a short period of downtime. This is a negative point for Nutanix because, in our environment, downtime is not something that we get easily. VMware does not have this issue. I would like to have more control from Prism so that you can control everything from there, as it does with vCenter. Nutanix does not support all of the Linux distributions, so we have to use VMware in some cases.

I would like to see the capability to use FC SAN storage. Currently, this technology is not supported.

I'm still learning about the solution. I haven't explored the entire solution just yet. The life expectancy of the solution should be improved. It would be ideal if there was more of a community around the solution so that it would be easier to learn things about the solution from other users. We've had hardware compatibility issues.

We've been waiting a long time for micro application using a company's provider, that would be a good improvement. The cost of the solution is quite high and I'd like to see that lowered.

It seems to me that everything is in gear as it should be, every time an update or new package appears it never ceases to amaze me as it helps us with a 100% stable technology, to add something would be to have clear the new needs of the human being. Each era every year, new economies arise and ways to develop the platform to improve both the interface with the end-user and to make the main load more flexible to the specialized user of the platform. Nutanix is ​​at the forefront and changes the paradigm with other providers because it allows simplifying daily work.

The solution could be improved if you combined Nutanix with AHV, because when you install Prism to manage AHV, there are a lot of commands. It might be better to integrate the commands with Prism and that would enable Prism to manage AHV. This is not currently in the command line.

Although this solution has very good analytics capabilities, it can be even more granular.

The solution could be a bit more user-friendly. The dashboard and configuration should be much easier to use. The migration from Nutanix to other platforms, like VMware and hypervisor, needs improvement. That is a difficult task right now, because we cannot run the two separately. It's a bit tricky.

I think perhaps they can improve on the price but it is a good product.

I think that the Nutanix Prism Pro the terms it uses, it's not very user-friendly. Those terms should be a little more user-friendly. What terms they use should be more user-friendly.

If I am comparing it with VMware, it is still not as compatible. I am not comfortable in working with the automation in Nutanix Prism or the SAN side. The automation needs to be improved, as there are several challenges.

The main area where an improvement could be made would be the pricing. Aside from that, it's a very good product. An additional feature that could be included would be to make an easy connection to closed systems such as Azure.

In the next release, I would like the ability to browse data stores directly from the Prism interface instead of using third party product.

Perhaps the interface can be more intuitive. It's easy, but it is very slow at the beginning.
