Stable with great replication and snapshot capabilities
Pros and Cons
  • "The scalability is good."
  • "The pricing can be better."

What is our primary use case?

We primarily use the solution for versioning. The clusters are on my private cloud. 

How has it helped my organization?

The fact that snapshot, replication, and management are tied together all is important due to the fact that if your snapshots are too big, you can have problems going ahead and replicating to the other clusters. You often need bandwidth managing to make sure that you don't flood the bandwidth of your connection between two or three places.

What is most valuable?

The most valuable features are the replication, the snapshots. They all go hand in hand with each other. The snapshot technology with replication and bandwidth management is good. 

The initial setup is simple. 

The solution is stable. 

The scalability is good.

What needs improvement?

The snapshots have room for improvement.

The pricing can be better.

They don't own the networking side of it.

Nutanix is harder to restore. The problem with Nutanix is when you want to restore data and you only want to restore selected data, much more tedious. With Scale, it's a simple GUI and takes seconds.

Find out what your peers are saying about Nutanix, Microsoft, VMware and others in Hybrid Cloud Computing Platforms. Updated: November 2022.
656,862 professionals have used our research since 2012.

For how long have I used the solution?

We've had Nutanix now for four years.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

The solution is extremely stable. There are no bugs or glitches. It's reliable. It doesn't crash or freeze. 

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

The solution can scale well if you need it to. If you have a large number of machines, Nutanix is the way to go. Nutanix will let you just keep on adding hundreds of nodes to a cluster. However, reading-wise, Nutanix is slower than, for example, Scale. 

I have a staff of two. I have three others on my staff right now that currently know the system.

How are customer service and support?

Nutanix support is good. However, Scale is better. They do respond and they do things, but Scale is faster.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

I have both Nutanix and Scale, which are two competitors. Scale does some things better than Nutanix. Nutanix does some things better than Scale.

How was the initial setup?

The implementation is straightforward. It's not complex at all. It's all very simple. 

The deployment took us not even a day. It's very fast.

Maintenance is easy and doesn't take much time. It's pretty self-repairing.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

The pricing is a bit high. It could be less expensive. It gets very expensive to use it. It's based on the CPU and everyone else basically has pricing based on the CPU and between CPU, RAM, and hard drive space. It's not amazing.

What other advice do I have?

I'm just a customer and an end-user.

Users are going to have to know the CLIs and they're going to have to learn the back doors to CLI for stuff and make sure that they really have someone who is doing the networking properly and double-check all your network configurations with Nutanix. They don't do any of that. Whereas Scale sells you the network switches already configured.

I'd rate the solution at an eight out of ten.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

I can't speak to the licensing costs. I have no visibility on that at all. 

What other advice do I have?

I'm a customer and an end-user. I use Nutanix on a daily basis.

In terms of the deployment version I am on, it's generally as close to up to date as I can make it.
