"The pricing is rather competitive right now."
"The solution is good for cloud cost management."
"We are able to create an internal price of the product that we can then sell to clients. We get the cost plan at a good discount and then resell it with a mark up to our enterprise-level clients. This flexibility in pricing is one of the solution's best features."
"It's stable. For report presentation, it's been fast."
"The thing that CloudHealth does well is billing. It does really well on the billing part."
"Beam has automated reports and workflows. You can configure Beam to automatically send out reports to the business units responsible for managing cloud costs, so you don't need to log into the tool to get information. Beam's user interface and dashboards are beautiful. The customers love it because it's easy to use. They can run it and get a report an hour later to immediately see the savings."
"The executive dashboard is valuable and provides a complete sense of the whole infrastructure."
"We haven't faced any problems because Nutanix provides an outside team. We haven't had any issues requiring L3 support, and the L1 and L2 engineers are on-site."
"The Perspectives feature could be better."
"I think the dashboards could be improved."
"CloudHealth needs to start building out Turbonomics-types of features that help the customers who are using CloudHealth really understand everything down to the server level, the virtual machine level."
"The performance and accuracy of Cloud Health need to be improved."
"The solution doesn't offer the best functionality, unfortunately. Some features just simply aren't on offer. The solution needs to offer more product milestones."
"Azure has a public cloud offering, and it also has a CSP model that allows Microsoft partners to provide Azure as a service to their customers. Beam only works on the standard public cloud, not the CSP model. When I was at Nutanix, we frequently got requests for Azure CSP support. We also got some requests for Alibaba Cloud and Oracle Cloud, but Azure CSP was the biggest one."
"Compatibility with multiple clouds and a single control would help us. We are also getting onto GCP, and there is limited compatibility with GCP in the areas we need. We are using GCP primarily for data analytics."
"Few systems are not business-critical, but they run 24/7."
