We used Cisco UCS in house to host some of our Test environment, and we have used Azure for rest of test environment and dev environment. But we found the Azure cost too much to maintain large amount of VMs and we have Azure and Cisco UCS, the two environments needed to combine.

We were an entirely Windows shop running VMs on Hyper-V. While this worked, our arrangement lacked the resiliency offered by Nutanix clustering. It's really hard to beat a converged system, with the networking, storage, and processing all built into a single unit.

The product replaced was vmware.

We still use VMWare for our VDI based environments, as we like the solution for that particular use case.

For non-vdi solutions, AOS has worked perfectly well. The product is supported by VEEAM, and a number of other backup solutions, plus by nutanix itself. You have to pay for the support on the hardware anyway, it really makes great financial sense to use the integrated hypervisor as long as you can support the environment easily.

This also gave us the added benefit of being able to completely segregate our VDI environments from our other production workloads. This change has also helped drastically for performance and fault isolation.
