Well suited if you are planning on deploying Nutanix cluster at remote branch offices where some server footprint is needed but don't have IT support there. Perfect scenario for ease of management and deployment remotely.

Nutanix is a good solution if:
  1. You cannot afford to have your services go offline.
  2. You want peace of mind that comes from total hardware redundancy.
  3. You are comfortable running commands through a terminal emulator.
  4. You want a system that largely manages itself in terms of keeping your VMs online.
  5. You're concerned more about bullets 1-4 than you are cost.
Nutanix is probably not a good solution for you if:
  1. Cost is your primary concern. In this case, you would probably be better served using something like Microsoft's Hyper-V replication, which is included with the cost of a Windows Server license.
  2. 24x7 uptime is not critical, there are cheaper and easier solutions to achieve near-constant uptime (see bullet one, above).
  3. You are not comfortable working at a command line or don't want to pay for tech support.

Resources are only ever a click away, which means you reduce the time it takes to make those resources available to your developers from weeks to just minutes. Which is awesome when it comes to time and cost savings.

Well Suited:
Consolidation of hardware
Reduction of cost with Acropolis
Scales incredibly well

Less Appropriate:
Nutanix is not meant for 1:1 replacement of legacy equipment

It's appropriate for mid-sized businesses with 50 to 70 average server horsepower. Also for environments with high availability acquirement and shorter RTO thanks to snapshot technology. Also, clustering comes in handy for the DR needs ;it also simply integrates with Azure .

I don't personally believe that HCI is going to fall short for more demanding environments, as it can grow and become more powerful using better hardware.

VDI deployment used to be the best business case but today, there are no limits anymore, Nutanix is well suited in any situation, any workload and now, the x86 barrier fell down with the support of IBM Power architecture.

If you have a large amount of servers to virtualize or basic user virtual desktops, nutanix is perfect. Really happy with the solution. Cost is the biggest prohibitor. For a smaller environment, it might not make financial sense.

If it's a virtual workload, toss it on Nutanix. We started off with VDI and were so impressed we migrated our VSI environment as well. I'm told they do not play in the super-high performance market where you would look at how many cores/procs you can fit on a single board.

Nutanix is well suited on: Database, VDI, and isolation of infrastructure. The performance and the features of NUTANIX work fine in every contest. Also, the small size of Nutanix allows a saving on both energy and logistics [that is] to be reckoned with. Nutanix is less appropriate: NONE. In my experience, I think that NUTANIX is the best solution for every scenario.

We had many servers that were required for application separation for both security and comparability (classic server sprawl) but were underutilized. The Nutanix solution was the best fit because it had the power we required and the hyper-converged infrastructure means all elements: management, storage, and compute come in a single intelligent box.

Nutanix is suited well for all scenarios in my opinon, as long as you know what you are building it for. Even if things change in the future you can always add a full flash node when needed. Nutanix express is a great option for the small business also. Everyone wins when going to hyper converged.

I would recomend Nutanix to anyone looking to upgrade their existing environment. From what I have seen it works well with all workloads and scenarios we use it for. Database applications and scenarios perform extremely well in Nutanix and no matter the intensity of the database or application it never lets us down.

Nutanix is suited for everything!

The only scenario where I would not implement it is at a site which does not have at least 3 ESX hosts and 100VMs. The cost would not be justifiable

I have not found a workload that does not work well on the platform. Like any solution, it excels on some workloads better than others, but it is easily on par with the competitor on even the least compatible solutions. If you need a dense rack, simple system to run your productive systems, Nutanix will surely satisfy.

It's very well suited to highly virtualised environments, starting with small sites with about 50 VMs, but Nutanix scales well up to more than a thousand VMs. You can't use it with legacy bare metal workloads if they require fibre channel.

Well suited for almost all day-to-day small and medium scale applications involving virtual infrastructure.

May not be suited for customers where startup cost is a factor -- though in a longer term with continuous expansion in the future the cost per terabyte would be less than a traditional SAN.

Nutanix, like other hyper-converged systems as far as [I can] tell, is a great solution for scale up. In our case we have 3 nodes, 2 for redundancy but 3 in total. For our upgrades we will only upgrade those 3 machines until they are maxed. As a medium sized media company such as ours this is fantastic! It is far more machine we will ever need and we can continue to add more drive space and memory to it, but it will reach its max. For those companies who require hardware beyond what a Nutanix node will allow, I believe a traditional scale out solution is more appropriate.

HCI will be suited for almost all scenarios. Picking the right vendor to meet your challenge is most important. Oracle and SAP can be deployed on Nutanix. Nutanix also provides a wide choice of hardware platforms depending on customer needs. Nutanix also comes with the box that can be equipped with a high-performance GPU for heavy duty video performance.
