It could use a URL document server. Everything in the market is moving towards automation and everybody's looking for the single click operations as well relational data locality. The virtualization could be improved.

I would like to see integration with Kubernetes cluster and APIs so that you can manage the entire stack.

I would like to see more out-of-the-box dashboards for in-depth application monitoring of standard products that are out there. I would probably have more adoption of this solution in my own company's administrators if they didn't have to do anything. Premade metrics has room for improvement. They have a lot now, and they have certainly grown over the time that we've done the trial by quite a bit. However, there is always room for improvement there.

The implementation is a long process that should be improved.

In the new version, I would love to see more prediction capabilities. It would be great if one could see the alerts get a little more enriched with information and become more human-friendly instead of the technical stuff that they put in there. I think those would be really awesome outcomes to get. I would also like it if alerts were easier. It's really easy to drown in alerts. So what the developers of Wavefront could do, is to correlate different types of alerts to bring a much more enriched incident. That would be an interesting thing to look at. Predicting a problem beforehand could also be improved since Wavefront has all the data of metrics in its store. I would like to know if something is wrong so that I can go and look at it. I would like to use the AIML approach to predict problems for the user other than the users trying to figure out what the problems are themselves. I would love to see a change in that direction.

Authentication is probably there already, but if it isn't, it should be added. Integration should be in there. They could make it more easy to plug-in data so that a nontechnical person will be able to use it, like accountants or finance people. That way they don't have to ask us. The solution should integrate AI elements. Instead of opening a file with a template and filling things out, have the AI ask questions, and then let it fill it out.

We do not use this solution directly. Rather, we provide a platform for people to run it. We are the virtualization engineers, and we interface with this solution. Our experience is with a private cloud deployment.

If I were to compare the cost of this solution to a traditional one, I think it's a consolidation of price, where everything is in one, versus having separate applications modules for the same thing. It achieves the same outcome, pretty much.

It’s in INR. Our data is on four sites and these are in the development phase. Different locations require different setups. In your terms, around 300 to around 400K USD. Additionally, Nutanix is giving compression size and VXL this switch thing. And along with the hardware and software, and their expertise, so up to another 100K USD.
