"The high performance is very valuable, as well as the enterprise reliability features."
"We have been able to consolidate storage into Pavilion. Pavilions are our only SANs because it is a bring your own disk solution. When new drives come out, we are able to take out half of the drives in the system, put in new drives, move our VMs over to the new drives, take the other drives out, and populate those with new drives. Then, we are suddenly twice as dense as we were before. NVMe flash is only going to get denser and cheaper so we can make use of that every couple of years by just throwing newer disks into it at a fraction of the cost of a new SAN."
"There's lots of flexibility in how we use the resources while also maintaining a small footprint."
"In the 20 days that we have been using this solution, it has been stable."
"The performance and the processor are good."
"The most valuable feature is the management of Nimble Storage, InfoSight. This is like a cloud. That's really a very nice feature. I think that's the only reason to buy Nimble Storage."
"The deduplication and compression capabilities are powerful."
"The fact that you can manage the requirements is one the most valuable features of HPE Nimble Storage. The other is the rapid deployment time."
"HPE Nimble Storage is quick to release updates that fix bugs or problems and the failover has been good."
"Good architecture and produces a lot of IOPS."
"Even if one control fails, it automatically turns on the other controller and everything moves from one to the second instantaneously without any issues."
"Performing a Nutanix software upgrade is a very simple and non-disruptive process."
"Hyperconvergence enables one administrator to manage everything through one dashboard."
"There are a lot of features in Nutanix that are different from other hyper-converged solutions, such as site-to-site replication. VM-based site-to-site replication is bundled with the software licensing. For the DR, it has the availability groups, which is one of the key features that Nutanix provides."
"In addition to the hyper-converged infrastructure, most of our clients are pleased with Acropolis' built-in replication in terms of the DR setup. Our clients also like Prism Central's advanced management and analytics, and many find Nutanix Flow and playbooks incredibly useful."
"Everything is core centralized on the UI."
"The feature that I have found most valuable is its software Move, which we use to migrate virtual info from another platform to the Nutanix platform."
"One of the most valuable features is that it can be applied at any scale."
"The solution offers impressive performance."
"The rail system that Pavilion uses to mount up into a standard Dell or APC cabinet extends further back than normal rails, and they cover up the zero PDU slot. So, I don't like the rail system that comes with the device. That is my biggest complaint."
"In our current configuration, we can only run the line controllers in high availability, active-standby mode, whereas we would like to see active-active implemented."
"I would like to see the management layer improved."
"The solution needs to be an active-active controller."
"I would like to see an added feature to auto-fix, or a dynamic alerting system on storage."
"It would be ideal if all these enterprise-class high-performance products would come at a cheaper price."
"The resellers did the implementation of the solution, we did not do it ourselves. We have ten people for the deployment of the solution."
"We would like there to be more enhanced features."
"The quality of technical support depends on which member of the support team you speak with."
"There is a new version of the Nimble and 3PAR systems called Alletra and they have a lot of new features."
"If they could reduce the cost, that would be ideal."
"Limits on increasing space with the inability to have or attach external storage."
"One disadvantage of Nutanix Acropolis AOS is it doesn't support external storage. Connecting external SAN storage to Nutanix, it's not supported."
"Storage utilization and optimization should be better."
"While their overall Nutanix Bible is good, they are lacking good descriptions for particular scenarios that might be helpful to many users."
"We ran into an issue as a managed service provider because Acropolis isn't designed to be used the way we are running it. For example, if we want to deploy a Kubernetes service, the customer networks need to reach our protected cluster network. We have isolated our customers in separate VLANs. However, our customers' networks must access our cluster network to get features like iSCSI or Kubernetes to run. It's challenging."
"It's lacking in some features but overcompensating in others."
"The solution doesn't support older systems, which can be a problem for some organizations who wish to implement it. It became a problem for us due to the fact that some of our systems are older."
"There is a lot of functionality in Prism Central, but sometimes you want to see those features in Prism Element."
