"In general, being able to patch and not having to pay for SanDisk is the best thing about hyper-converged.""Acropolis' main advantages are high performance and availability.""It is less expensive than VMware products. It is also a little bit more flexible, but it really comes down to price for us.""I have found the solution to be stable.""We like that the size of the box is 1U or 2U only, and all the servers are fit into that box. The ease of operation is there. All the servers and the SAN storage are inside the box.""The solution offers impressive performance.""One of the most valuable features is the One-Click Upgrade. When I need to update the system, I do it with one click. This product is amazing because everything is easy to manage, from network management to snapshots.""It has a user-friendly dashboard and interface."

Cons
"One of the areas that need improvement is the consolidated management platform, to manage all of the nodes from one place and the licensing around that.""User interface could be improved.""In our country, Qatar, most of the industry isn't using too much HP. StoreVirtual doesn't move fast. It's not a popular product.""The solution needs to ensure it is on par with the industry in terms of availability of features and various other options.""The management aspect of the solution needs to be improved in order to make the product stronger.""It is a costly solution.""The initial setup could be simplified to make it easier for new users."

More HPE StoreVirtual Cons →

"This product would be improved if it included a hybrid cloud solution.""As far as what could be improved, they have some built-in backup functions already, but any built-in isolation features like vision security features and free LAN features become a security concern.""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 should improve AHV to support migration VMs between clusters and storage containers. Migration between containers is possible, but it requires shutting down the VM. The procedure is long and there is no migration between clusters at all.""Areas for improvement would be the memory setting and the CPU setting reserve features, which are not available on Acropolis. I also feel that the DR solution, the reporting, and the component that is combined with the Nutanix OSP need to be improved.""In the future, I would like to see integration with external storage using the fiber channel""Pricing and varieties of options could be better.""The self-service side of the product needs to be improved. We should be able to add two-factor authentication and more security layers to it."

Pricing and Cost Advice
  • "For our organization, I believe the cost is 16,000 Euros for a three-year license. It costs a bit more to do the maintenance on our servers as well. It's also on an HP ProLiant server and an organization will need to do the maintenance there also. I believe the price for that is around 2000 Euros a year."
  • "It costs less than $10,000 for one machine. If it costs more than 15% higher than this, then the customer may change to another solution."

  • "AHV is free! This is a great feature that should be taken advantage of."
  • "The licensing costs are a bit expensive but when you compare the features, it's reasonable."
  • "This product is less expensive than some of the competing HCI solutions."
  • "Its price is fine. I can't really complain about that."
  • "My advice is to get the ultimate license, as it is worth it."
  • "The setup cost, pricing, and licensing are very competitive and TCO is very low compared to three-tier solutions."
  • "Nutanix is cheaper than Cisco HyperFlex, although it depends on the configuration because Nutanix can also be expensive."
  • "The pricing is fair for the package."
