An interface that is simple to use and the redundancy is good

What is our primary use case?

The redundancy is very good.

What needs improvement?

The storage could be improved.

The implementation is a little bit complex and should be made easier.

Better analysis capability of the files using the API would be helpful.

Find out what your peers are saying about Nutanix, Qumulo, MinIO and others in File and Object Storage. Updated: November 2022.
657,397 professionals have used our research since 2012.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

Nutanix Files is flexible in terms of being able to scale it. If you are scaling out then you have to expand your file server, but it is an easy process. 

We have approximately 300 people who are using data on the Nutanix Files server.

How are customer service and support?

I am generally satisfied with the technical support. However, one thing that needs to be improved is that you have to go through the hardware vendor for support in some circumstances.

How was the initial setup?

The initial setup is a little bit complex. You need to set up your management server, and you also have to do some virtualization. Windows File Server is easier to configure, where you can set it up all at once.

What other advice do I have?

Overall, this is a good product and I recommend it.

I would rate this solution an eight out of ten.
