"Making the move to Acropolis"

What do you like best?

When it comes to protecting information, technology, and other such data, it is so imperative to have a good protection company with platforms that are easy to use. The company has been slowly moving to Acropolis as a replacement for or upgrade from VMware essentials. What sets it apart from VMware is that Acropolis has more features that address issues and functions similar to VMware enterprise feature sets, but all of these additions don't come with the extra cost.

What do you dislike?

Getting switched to and starting Acropolis has been a bit of a painstaking process. And one of the issues we also ran into was that there are (to the best of our knowledge) only three licensing types. This is very limiting for us. In addition, storage usage reporting is rather weak, but when looking at all of the other platforms, I suppose this is a common problem.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The company utilizes Acropolis for any and all of our business critical trading solutions. This platform enables us to control data, storage, and other visualization resources from a remote location with very minimal need to manage another platform (such as VMware).

"great modern hypervisor "

What do you like best?

The best part of this product is that it helped us think differently as were implementing this product of what do we want from a high availability and storage standpoint to be able to automate more and hence be more efficient.

What do you dislike?

The only thing that comes to mind is the fact that the hypervisor is not compatible with some of the legacy networking equipment that we had and we had to do some additional scripts to make it compatible and work with those equipments rather than go out and replace them since they had useful life and were pretty solid.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

ask compatibility questions of existing equipment with the vendor and do a proof of concept

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We were looking for more automation of storage and virtualization and hence looking for a modern hyperconvrged platform and Nutanix rose to the occasion.

What Server Virtualization solution do you use?

Thanks for letting us know!

"experience with nutanix acropolis"

What do you like best?

Double check and test your infrastructure, there are some incompatibilities (which require workarounds) with some networking equipment.

What do you dislike?

It challenges so many pre-conceived notions for networking, storage, HA, virtualization that it makes it like you're learning it all new. A good new but it can be hard breaking out of old habits

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

If you have the bandwidth, setting up farms with members existing in different physical locations was a snap and even when a site went down the workload migration was automatic and in many cases unnoticed.

"AOS review"

What do you like best?

I should choose this product since i am using this. What i'd like the most is how clusters work and its concept.

That really makes me amaze of this hyperconverged. Everything was really good and appreciated.

What do you dislike?

And for this, maybe its hard when it comes to migration process. From existing physical to be migrated to new hyperconverge was really difficult to manage.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I think, that benefits here is the way we understand its concept and testing the migration to another nodes.

"Great company, great product!"

What do you like best?

Everything about the company is fantastic. Their support teams are amazing, something that can be difficult to experience in the IT industry.

What do you dislike?

I think they are challenged like most modern companies in balancing velocity with quality. In other words they need to continue to innovate, but also balance releasing a stable product. Their product is stable, but small issues do periodically make it past QA to release.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Nutanix has really made our core infrastructure management process "invisible". Rather than needing expertise in virtualization, storage, and networking it only takes a single generalist to manage our Nutanix environment. This has saved our company countless time and money.

"It would be perfect, if only..."

What do you like best?

Cheaper and easier than VMWARE. It has tons of features and is designed to easily give you a hybrid infrastructure that is easily traversed.

What do you dislike?

It isn't compatible with a lot of other vendors.

It would be perfect, if only more vendors supported AHV the way that ESXi is.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Make sure your back and DR solutions are compatible before moving.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We run our corporate and development infrastructure on it. It is cheaper. It is high-performance.

"Best Hypervisor for a basic virtual env."

What do you like best?

The speed and ease of use. It set up quickly and was easy to learn.

What do you dislike?

It does not allow for all the same functionality as the larger Hypervisors but it does provide plenty of features to host less extensive virtual env. That being said, Nutanix can host any hypervisor so this is really a non issue.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Do your research and make sure you want this hypervisor

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Speed and physical server deprecation

"Hyperconverged Leader with Great Support and Usability"

What do you like best?

Ease of use. Being a storage admin with other competing products in the past has really opened my eyes at how easy the Nutanix computing platform is to maintain and use. Its almost set it and forget it. Having all the storage available without having to move data around and re-size lun's makes Nutanix light years ahead of the competition, even those who are claiming to be a hyperconverged system. Any issues that have arose have been quickly and thoroughly handled through their great support team around the globe. I wouldn't hesitate to add more Nutanix to our existing infrastructure .

What do you dislike?

There isn't much that I would say I dislike about the Nutanix Computing Platform. They could expand and improve their web based training classes to help with the NPP exam. I really struggled with the exam with the existing material they provided with the class. After I questioned why my class had not received the same type of materials that a classroom setting would provide I was quickly sent the books and this was a much easier way to study and cover all materials.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Go for it! You wont regret it.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We have definitely seen reduction in power and cooling in our data center. As well as a reduced hardware footprint and improved reliability with less downtime for upgrades and patching our hosts.

Nutanix got the best support crew I've ever been in touch with! They act quick, accurate and are very experienced. Their knowledge base is also great!

Everything is well documented, but from time to time it gets slightly messy. One KB referring to another KB, etc.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Just try it - you'll love it!

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

So many possibilities! Specially after learning more deeply about it. I still find stuff I didn't know existed!
