Quotes From Members
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
"Aside from ease of use, scalability is one of the key points of this solution.""The centralized management of Nutanix Prism is the best feature.""Everything has been valuable, without a doubt the server is self-managed with Prism in an efficient way, it solves possible logical errors to maintain production without interruptions, it's great.""The pricing is very good if you compare it to other competitors.""I like the general usability for general configuration. It is sufficient for everyday operations.""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 storage management is one of the best.""Nutanix Prism is very fast compared to VMware and whatever you need to do, you can do it quickly."

Cons
"It would be ideal if there was more of a community around the solution so that it would be easier to learn things about the solution from other users.""The solution could be a bit more user-friendly. The dashboard and configuration should be much easier to use.""The life cycle management or LCM feature is the most complicated. It takes really long and is unpredictable for our use cases. They should provide more detailed information about the kind of LCM to go for, various errors, and different kinds of tasks. For analytics for certain configurations, we require more details with the report. Sometimes, not all elements are present for support, management, and configuration. For troubleshooting, it would be very easy and useful if we can analyze log files directly from Prism, that is, not from the command line but directly from Prism.""Nutanix does not support all of the Linux distributions, so we have to use VMware in some cases.""The price could be improved.""Does not yet have micro application using a company's provider.""I think that the Nutanix Prism Pro the terms it uses, it's not very user-friendly.""No integration of commands to manage AHV."

"If Zabbix had a better dashboard then it would be nice.""If you want to use all of the features then you have to pay a licensing fee.""Implementation is always tailored to the customer and the kind of information we need from the client to carry it out can make them very uncomfortable. Sometimes the clients are not ready to share it.""There are not too much documentation or manuals. We found the tutorials very easy to understand but do not go deep enough in the use of Zabbix. We need more manuals, proper use, documentation, etc.""My company wanted to do an exercise command to access IT from Cameroon. They wanted to access an FSS to a second host with second equipment that was on another coast but it is not possible on Zabbix to do it. They want to directly access from the front-end of Zabbix to access a prompt in Zabbix to an access terminal. In the front-end, there is no way to do that. That would be an important improvement.""The only improvement I would suggest, revolves around its AI and ML capabilities.""It could be more stable.""One of the things we don't like is that Zabbix has a license structure with a price that is high compared to the competition. It's very high, for example, compared to something like Microsoft Teams."
