"AOS review"

What do you like best?

I should choose this product since i am using this. What i'd like the most is how clusters work and its concept.

That really makes me amaze of this hyperconverged. Everything was really good and appreciated.

What do you dislike?

And for this, maybe its hard when it comes to migration process. From existing physical to be migrated to new hyperconverge was really difficult to manage.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I think, that benefits here is the way we understand its concept and testing the migration to another nodes.

"Great company, great product!"

What do you like best?

Everything about the company is fantastic. Their support teams are amazing, something that can be difficult to experience in the IT industry.

What do you dislike?

I think they are challenged like most modern companies in balancing velocity with quality. In other words they need to continue to innovate, but also balance releasing a stable product. Their product is stable, but small issues do periodically make it past QA to release.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Nutanix has really made our core infrastructure management process "invisible". Rather than needing expertise in virtualization, storage, and networking it only takes a single generalist to manage our Nutanix environment. This has saved our company countless time and money.

What Server Virtualization solution do you use?

Thanks for letting us know!

"It would be perfect, if only..."

What do you like best?

Cheaper and easier than VMWARE. It has tons of features and is designed to easily give you a hybrid infrastructure that is easily traversed.

What do you dislike?

It isn't compatible with a lot of other vendors.

It would be perfect, if only more vendors supported AHV the way that ESXi is.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Make sure your back and DR solutions are compatible before moving.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We run our corporate and development infrastructure on it. It is cheaper. It is high-performance.

"Best Hypervisor for a basic virtual env."

What do you like best?

The speed and ease of use. It set up quickly and was easy to learn.

What do you dislike?

It does not allow for all the same functionality as the larger Hypervisors but it does provide plenty of features to host less extensive virtual env. That being said, Nutanix can host any hypervisor so this is really a non issue.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Do your research and make sure you want this hypervisor

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Speed and physical server deprecation

"Hyperconverged Leader with Great Support and Usability"

What do you like best?

Ease of use. Being a storage admin with other competing products in the past has really opened my eyes at how easy the Nutanix computing platform is to maintain and use. Its almost set it and forget it. Having all the storage available without having to move data around and re-size lun's makes Nutanix light years ahead of the competition, even those who are claiming to be a hyperconverged system. Any issues that have arose have been quickly and thoroughly handled through their great support team around the globe. I wouldn't hesitate to add more Nutanix to our existing infrastructure .

What do you dislike?

There isn't much that I would say I dislike about the Nutanix Computing Platform. They could expand and improve their web based training classes to help with the NPP exam. I really struggled with the exam with the existing material they provided with the class. After I questioned why my class had not received the same type of materials that a classroom setting would provide I was quickly sent the books and this was a much easier way to study and cover all materials.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Go for it! You wont regret it.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We have definitely seen reduction in power and cooling in our data center. As well as a reduced hardware footprint and improved reliability with less downtime for upgrades and patching our hosts.
