Well, pricing is a sure way to disregard great technology. If it’s the only angle Leadership is taking, it’s a missed opportunity. I don’t mean expensive stuff is always good, far from that. But when crunching numbers is your thing: If you look at hardware prices you will…

With Nutanix you have the freedom of choice. You can deploy it with several server hardware vendors or completely in the cloud. I don’t know Hyperflex at heart, though. Also, support at Nutanix is outstanding.

@Oliver Chitsamatanga, ​ The correct answer: it depends. But firstly, let's correct your question: cloud-hosted does not necessarily conclude outsourcing. It is totally normal to self-host something in the cloud. This triggers another point: do you need to compare…

Wow, all the name-droppers are there already! But we had one job: recommend the best out of two!Not recommend x,y and z. I would recommend Nutanix as it has a wider scope as a solution. Nutanix AOS has better resilience against failures and better performance and even the…

@BobWhitcombe The official nutanix site at https://www.nutanix.com/produc...software-options states there is no hard placed limit. Back in 2016 there is a twitter post stating the delivery of a 100-node-solutions using 2 PB storage. Maybe too old for you but nonetheless it…

This question is like what do you prefer? Wordpad or Word? Both are useful, just for different things. So one would probably end up using both. Would you it-central-stationeers stop with this nonsense already?

@Hicham Bali dont forget that simplicity is ingrained into Nutanix solutions.to  Make it better means to make it easier. And as AOS+AHV comes with best support there is nothing to gain for VMware.

@reviewer1650858 Which integrations do you use with vSAN?

KVM is better. But let's just look at the software instead of judging. Hyper-V was a free solution from Microsoft to virtualize Server or Client OS as it is a feature on Windows Server since 2008 and came in Windows 8 as well. Free because they had a special SKU dedicated…

We've recently switched from Veeam B&R to Rubrik with their Polaris Radar Solution to detect Ransomware. VM-Backup is a standard feature nowadays. DRaaS - do you mean a cloud solution or on-prem?Failover for Windows - you don't refer to Windows Failover Cluster, do you? We…

Clearly Nutanix. As to why, Nutanix has a better vision, superior support and the product is more mature. See http://www.joshodgers.com/tag/... Josh Odgers has a series of comparison articles. Short story: vSAN has been released and since that they are beginning to wipe out…

We are currently in the process of looking for "new tools" in regards to endpoint security. We use McAfee at the moment and we lean more towards S1. But I am interested how your POCs go. Please come back with some insight!

Traditionally, DR consideration was mainly to protect from hardware failures. So using an internal DR approach would take into account failure of the production hardware/software to an extent that you would have to take action but not if a plane would crash your site. Such…

@Farhan Parkar Yes, but setting up University is probably takings some time to set up (was for me) and providing instant help seems more what was asked for.  Besides, the videos in Nutanix University are often put on YT as well.

Acropolis in itself is no product. Do we speak AOS or AHV Ort both? AOS is the intelligence on Top of a hypervisor making AHV Or Vsphere an HCI Solution. AHV is Nutanix own KVM-based hypervisor managed completely within Prism from AOS, so there is no standalone offering,…

Hey, great review fellow nutanix user. The controller VM (CVM) has lots of ressources but this is how it works. Every storage request goes through a CVM with cache, deduplication, replication and what not (depends on your feature selection). Reducing the ressources would…

So you have 25 physical servers you want to virtualize, or are there 25 VMs which need a DR solution?In both cases: this is a rather small setup.We host over 20 VMs per physical Host.  You could virtualize with ESXi and protect the VMs with Veeam. 3 Hosts for virtualization…

Answered a question: Why KVM??? Help please!
Internally Nutanix AHV is in its core KVM. They did many adjustments for the sake of manageability in AHV. It comes with no additional cost in their HCI offering Nutanix Acropolis OS (AOS). Proxmox VE is another solution which is completely free and you have a nice WebGUI…

Hello Samuel, a review of AOS 4.6 seems like referring about invention of the wheel. We one-clicked over Christmas 2020 from AOS 5.10 to 5.15 while 5.19 is available. Don't get me wrong. Your review is great - but outdated. Nutanix Files is now a separate license on a per TB…

Ok, I have no hands-on with vxRail. But we have vGPU running on Nutanix with ESXi (vsphere). I am not aware of something like vGPU sharing across nodes/hosts. You did not mention which solution you have in mind as you would be about to choose in the process. We have Citrix…

Hi, your question tangles on various subjects. Firstly, IIS is a great choice for hosting internal sites. But the windows under this IIS has many issues to keep up with so most public sites are just hosted on linux. I don't want to push you to an OS you are not comfortable…

Hello, your review seems to be based off of a system that includes Nutanix Flow (micro-segmentation) which is an additional license. So the focus on the review subject is not clear if you speak of lack of integrations. And that in particular with security vendors which leads…

I am happy to tell you that since release 5.18 there is a way to get it done more conveniently: https://portal.nutanix.com/#pa... That is still not as easy as import directly like in vmware but it gets the job done

Nutanix Acropolis is not really a standalone product. It is a product group. There were Acropolis File Services (now Nutanix Files), Acropolis Hypervisor (in short AHV), and Acropolis OS (short form: AOS). So what specifically is he referring to? I suppose AHV as he mentions…

Sorry, but AHV is just a free hypervisor choice with Nutanix. Otherwise show me how you would install AHV apart from AOS (AOS is the OS of the Controller VM Nutanix uses)!I bet you meant one can omit ESXi licensing which is true.But to be open source the source code would…

I have to strongly disagree. While ease of deployment is really nice it is an ease in a seldom executed action. But whenever problems arise you have to rely on a good support. Nutanix Support is second to none. None I came across however in the last 25 years. So lowering the…
