Our clients use this solution to achieve better database performance. It allows the system to run quicker and to be more responsive.

The most valuable features are the performance and the integration with other products, such as Oracle.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

This solution is very stable.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

It's somewhat scalable depending on the circumstances. 

If you are trying to scale it to resolve an issue because of the original sizing, that can be a bit more complex. When everything is sized correctly and you are scaling it to add more capacity, then it's quite easy.

How are customer service and support?

For most of the issues, technical support is pretty good. For the more complex and ongoing escalated issues, it can be slow to resolve. 

They are good but it can drag on a bit.

How was the initial setup?

The initial setup is quite easy.

Deployment usually takes less than a week. If you take into account testing phases and migration then it takes a few days.

What other advice do I have?

I am a solutions architect and I work for a reseller who implements products for customers. I do a lot of work in backup and recovery. I sell these solutions or I put together a solution architecture for each project. 

Overall, it's a good product. The hyper-converged is good, as long as it is sized correctly to fit your workload. Most of the challenges I see with Nutanix are due to the wrong architecture. It needs to be correctly sized. If it is not properly sized then you get poor performance.

I would rate this solution an eight out of ten.

Which deployment model are you using for this solution?
