Acropolis AOS is scalable to nodes and the cloud.
The most valuable features of Nutanix Acropolis AOS are storage and hyper-converged. The solution is easy to use and the administration is very good.
The flexibility is most valuable. Being able to manage things quickly if something goes wrong is also valuable. Very recently, we had one node that went down due to a power problem, but there was really no major impact on the systems running on top of it.
The ease of deployment and management of the solution are the most valuable aspects of the product.
We have seen ROI using this solution. It has simplified the work of the staff that we have which allows us to do more work with the same number of people, without having to incrementally grow staff. The reliability of the product has been exceptional.
Its ease of use is valuable. It is being used in a mining company. They wanted their working nodes to be seamless, and they wanted ease of use. That's why they opted for SimpliVity. They are running VMware virtual machines on it.
The license price is one of the cheapest in the market.
The fact that the solution is vendor-agnostic allows it to be used with any virtualization vendor while remaining a powerful abstraction over storage.
Product functionality and performance are wonderful.
The easy way everything can be configured and ready to run in less than a day is great.
Storage is always available.
Active-active is the most valuable aspect for us.
The most valuable feature is full integration with Cisco API and UCS, which means you can have complete networking and storage from Cisco.
I find the usability very valuable.
