Good management interface and reporting, helped us to consolidate our various file shares
Pros and Cons
  • "The management interface is great and you have handy access to several details about your file shares."
  • "The only thing I would say is missing for us it is FTP protocol compatibility."

What is our primary use case?

Our file share infrastructure was all messed up with several different solutions in place such as; Windows file servers, Hitachi NAS devices, Linux NFS repositories, and DFS. We were looking for a solution to replace and consolidate all our file share repositories in one single place and the Nutanix Files was the chosen solution.

We are very happy with it, as we were able to migrate hundreds of Windows file shares, Linux NFS, and the files seating on the Hitachi NAS to Nutanix with almost zero impact.

How has it helped my organization?

It is very fast, reliable, scalable, stable and It comes with very nice features, such as; built-in HA, analysis reporting, audit reports, DR replication, one-click upgrade, and some other cool features.

Now, we have much more control over our File Share environment. It is much easier to manage, and we've reduced the IT infrastructure footprint by 70%.

The built-in file analysis feature is also helping us a lot on the audit requests, as we can generate several different reports right away.

What is most valuable?

We were able to increase the file share environment's overall performance and availability. 

The HA feature (minimum of three instances), as well as the replication to another site using Nutanix Protection Domain (LEAP), is also a great addition to it.

The management interface is great and you have handy access to several details about your file shares. We didn't have any of that in our old file share environment.

What needs improvement?

The only thing I would say is missing for us it is FTP protocol compatibility. We still have some systems that use FTP to send and receive files, and we are missing that feature. The solution would be perfect for us with the FTP support, as we also have a lot of legacy FTP solutions in place spread across several different servers and platforms.

Easy to manage, upgrade and do analytics of new data
Pros and Cons
  • "The solution is stable and extremely easy to calibrate."
  • "The solution should increase its storage capabilities."

What is our primary use case?

We are a distributor of Nutanix Files. 

What is most valuable?

Nutanix Files is a complete solution in the Telco Machine and offers a host of benefits. These include easy management, upgrading and analytics of new data. 



What needs improvement?

The solution should increase its storage capabilities, as it has been required to make use of local data storage and local pockets and magnets. 

Also, I have had difficulty with Nutanix Files and with understanding Nutanix AOS. 

For how long have I used the solution?

I have been dealing with Nutanix Files since it was made available to new customers, for around two years. 

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

The solution is stable and extremely easy to calibrate. 

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

The solution is scalable. 

How are customer service and technical support?

While Nutanix Files are good when it comes to providing support, it could be faster. 

How was the initial setup?

I am a distributor and can manage the solution directly with the customer, who is usually a partner. Should the need arise, I can provide advice. 

What other advice do I have?

Nutanix Files is a free solution. I believe we have five customers making use of it. 

I would recommend the solution to customers who don't have great storage needs. 

I rate Nutanix Files as an eight out of ten.
