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 their shortcomings.

That means for AOS: more performance, better stability and resiliency.

Back at Nutanix's support, did I mention its awesomeness? I am a Nutanix customer.

If you want to have highly quick & fast snapshots and their restore then Nutanix Acropolis is the solution. Otherwise, VMware vSAN.
