We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:

Pros
"Recovery and maintenance are now less stressful and most importantly, it allows our users to keep working.""The solution is also quite flexible. As an example, other vSAN solutions that we looked at had more stringent requirements regarding mixed HDD/SSD storage which wouldn't have worked in our environment.""A typical system administrator with minimal experience in Hyper-V, VMware, or Windows can do VSAN configuration and maintain VSAN operations.""VSAN works great; it's very easy to install, configure, and manage.""It is extremely stable.""The most valuable feature of this solution is the support. They are excellent and you can learn a lot from the support team.""StarWind vSAN has allowed us to leverage our server infrastructure more completely without the need to add more hardware.""StarWind Virtual SAN for vSphere is a software-defined storage solution that has reduced administration time for storage. It's pretty straightforward to install and setup it and so far it has been robust and worked as advertised from StarWind."

"The solution is stable and everything is taken care of through the Huawei support center. They ensure everything is running smoothly. It's been very good.""The pricing of the solution is excellent. It's one of the main reasons a customer chooses Huawei. It's much, much better than VMware."

"The ease of deployment is very good.""We really love the Lifecycle manager and one-click upgrades.""The most valuable feature I have found to be the Acropolis Hypervisor (AHV).""Ability to create multiple VMs.""It supports multi-cloud integration that includes AWS, Google, and Azure.""One of the most valuable features is how well this solution performs. It's stable, aside from some patch issues, but it's great from a virtualization and scalability perspective.""The most valuable feature is the integration of all parts in Prism Element, the browser-based management tool.""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."

Cons
"A mobile app to sync up for overview and status would really be helpful.""We would like the documentation to be more complete. Most items are covered, but if you don't know something, you may need to contact their support.""There is no Italian-language version of the software available.""The console is something that I feel could be improved. There is nothing technically wrong with it, but it can be jazzed up and/or made to be a little more intuitive.""I think the setup could be streamlined a bit.""It would be nice to add the ability to use raw partitions instead of file containers.""If there was one feature I would like to see it would be a built-in subsystem for managing UPS backups shutdown procedures providing a way to initiate VM shutdown on all host servers, shut down the host servers, then put the fault-tolerant mirroring in standby, and finally shut down the StarWind SANs.""A great feature would be a wizard and to include a new disk in the SAN. At the moment, including a new disk requires several steps - some that must be done at the OS level and others in each node."

"t would be helpful if the solution was able to collaborate or integrate with other well-known monitoring tools. Right now, you have to work hard to get it configured. It would be a good selling point for them if they could open up their solution to more integrations.""Technical support needs improvement. There's a lot of language barriers."

More Huawei FusionCube Hyper-Converged Infrastructure Cons »

"I'm not very technical, so I don't know if there are any features that are really lacking. Our customers seem pleased with it, and I haven't heard of any downsides.""Nutanix Acropolis AOS could improve by adding some NAS features, similar to the ones that are available in the NetApp solution.""The ability to create clusters faster would be nice to see in a future release.""This product would be improved if it included a hybrid cloud solution.""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.""Limits on increasing space with the inability to have or attach external storage.""The cost of the solution is too expensive. There are other options, such as VMware, that are offered for less money. In Latin America, it seems to be overpriced for the market.""The patch updates of Nutanix Acropolis could be improved. I'm work on the corporate side, but I get feedback from our IT team that patch updates and other updates are taking a significantly longer time. This definitely needs to be resolved. We are in discussion with Nutanix regarding certain configuration issues we are having, so maybe something can be changed to ease these patch updates."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"I think the cost of this solution is quite fair.""The support contract is well worth it. The price for it was very reasonable and their team has been very engaged whenever we reach out.""The cost, including OPEX, is lower compared to other solutions.""We found that the pricing was perfect; simple and clear.""StarWind is a low-cost, full-featured alternative to the traditional SAN environment, and their support will guide you every step of the setup.""The setup cost, pricing, and licensing are very straightforward. They are exactly what you expect.""There are two tiers of support and in my opinion, support is worth the cost.""The cost takes into account the number of nodes, so the size of the storage is not important."

"The setup cost, pricing, and licensing are very competitive and TCO is very low compared to three-tier solutions.""This product is less expensive than some of the competing HCI solutions.""The pricing is fair for the package.""AHV is free! This is a great feature that should be taken advantage of.""Its price is fine. I can't really complain about that.""The cost of Nutanix Acropolis AOS is reasonable.""Nutanix is cheaper than Cisco HyperFlex, although it depends on the configuration because Nutanix can also be expensive.""The price of the solution could improve. Nutanix has recently changed its pricing model from perpetual to subscription. They have identified there are challenges with the pricing model."

Overview

For SMB, ROBO, Cloud and Hosting providers, who look to cut down virtualization expenses, our solution is StarWind VSAN. It is software that eliminates any need in physical shared storage by basically “mirroring” internal hard disks and flash between hypervisor servers. There is less hardware to buy in general, consequently less money is spent on purchase and maintenance. The existing hardware is used with maximum efficiency, so there is no money wasted at all.

StarWind Virtual SAN targets those who already have servers, or are bound to a particular vendor list to buy from. In case there is a new virtualization infrastructure to be built from scratch, StarWind offers a much better way – StarWind HyperConverged Appliance. It is a turnkey solution complete with hardware and software, powered by StarWind Virtual SAN. Those who need to build and maintain virtualization infrastructure at little to no expense, may be interested in StarWind Virtual SAN Free.
