We use the on-prem deployment model and our primary use case for this solution is for virtualization. We also use it for Calm & Karbon.

We are a system integration company and we sell hyper-converged infrastructure as the new model data center technology. This is one of the solutions that we provide to our customers. This solution can be deployed on-premises or in a cloud-based environment, but the majority of deployments are on-premises.

To understand which is better - Nutanix AHV or VMware vSphere - you need to do a product comparison. Both products support hypervisors. However, Nutanix supports some of the most popular ones and more options than VMware does. While Nutanix supports VMware ESXi, Nutanix AHV and Microsoft Hyper-V, VMware only supports VMware ESXi. Additionally, with Nutanix, AHV virtualization is included at no cost and with VMware, virtualization licenses are sold separately. In terms of architectural design, Nutanix has a modern web-scale architecture and VMware has legacy SAN technologies that are retrofitted into software. The native file storage is also different for each product; Nutanix has file storage through Nutanix files whereas VMware has file storage via File Services. Moreso, if you need native object storage services, VMware requires third-party products while Nutanix does not. I like that Nutanix has integrated machine learning, which is not a VMware feature. Another thing I like about Nutanix is that it has a low-latency application performance via data locality, which is not architecturally possible with VMware. I am also a fan of Nutanix because of their delivery model. It is customer-managed for full flexibility. Moreover, VMware requires proprietary gateways for network integration, while I don’t have to worry about that when using Nutanix. I will also mention that Nutanix provides license portability between public and private clouds while VMware has very limited support. One other advantage Nutanix has is that VM hibernation is supported and thus helps reduce costs. This isn’t the case for VMware. It’s also worth noting that Nutanix products are recognized for full lifecycle simplicity - making sure the product is easy to use from initial deployment to production scaling, troubleshooting, and beyond. Conclusion: For my needs, Nutanix is much better than VMware vSphere. As you can tell, Nutanix has many more features, which swayed my decision in choosing it over vSphere.

VMware ESX is one of the best software. Our experience with iSCSI has been this, we used HPE Proliant Server And HPE Ethernet 10Gb 2-port 560FLR-SFP+ Adapter as Initiator the Cisco Switch as a Fabric Layer, the delay was acceptable and applicable.

I have worked only with VMware Hypervisor and have seen that for most customers a 2 x 10Gbit connection it works fine when using in combination with the distributed virtual switch with network profile on it. (VMware QOS) in the DVS.
