We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
"The pricing is very good if you compare it to other competitors.""Aside from ease of use, scalability is one of the key points of this solution.""Since we began using Nutanix the performance for virtual desktops is much better.""Nutanix Prism is very simple to use compared to other products. I have tried a number of tools, including VMware ESXi. Nutanix Prism is much simpler to use and we feel data transfers in it are very fast.""The features that I have found most valuable are its storage flexibility, linear scalability, and perhaps ease of use and powerful support.""The Clone and Snapshot features are two of the most valuable aspects of the solution for our organization. Rather than simply one-click automation the Snapshot and reverse Snapshot are great.""Duplication and compression work for data in a hybrid solution.""Nutanix Prism is very fast compared to VMware and whatever you need to do, you can do it quickly."

"The solution is easy to install and it takes a couple of hours.""As we look to add more servers to our virtual environment and to understand the impact, the solution allows us to dig into the historical charts related to capacity planning.""The people in technical support are very good.""It did a good job of the collection and then an investigation of the net flow of information for understanding the applications that were being used at certain locations.""What I've found most valuable about the solution is that it's scalable.""I like SolarWinds support because it's 24/7. You describe your issues, your situation and maybe two or three hours later you can discuss a solution with a technical engineer.""The solution is extremely stable. We haven't had any issues in that regard. We haven't had issues with bugs, glitches, or crashes.""The most valuable feature is the graphical user interface."

Cons
"I would like to have some cluster management tools included.""No integration of commands to manage AHV.""The cost is a negative aspect.""I would like to see the capability to use FC SAN storage.""Does not yet have micro application using a company's provider.""The price could be improved.""The automation needs to be improved, as there are several challenges.""I think that the Nutanix Prism Pro the terms it uses, it's not very user-friendly."

More Nutanix Prism Cons →

"An area for improvement would be the use of modular licenses, which are not practical for big clients.""Having more technical and support resources available in Saudi Arabia would be helpful.""The solution is not always good with new features, so it's take a long time.""The reporting module that got integrated into the system itself, used to be a standalone solution and I preferred that.""The only thing that can be improved is to continually add to the existing capabilities of the product.""Fortigate firewalls are one example of a product that we are unable to monitor properly via SolarWinds NPM.""We decided that we were no longer going to trust that their products have not been capitalized.""If they did some type of synthetic monitoring, it would have been better."
