Overall Satisfaction with Nutanix AOS

  • We started our Nutanix AOS Journey over five years, Migrating from a 3 Tier Dell infrastructure. It became very apparent that this was something different; It just worked. With 6 Months, we'd migrated all our production systems to Nutanix AOS.
  • Since then, we've continued along with Nutanix AOS, most recently migrating from Hyper-V to Nutanix AOS, very own Hypervisor, AHV. Why? Because it simplifies operations, putting everything into that great "single plane of glass."

Pros

  • Invisible Infrastructure
  • Simple, easy to understand interface
  • One-click functionality

Cons

  • Better 3rd party integration (but that's not *really* Nutanix AOS problem)
  • We reduced from 3x42racks down to a single rack - Power and cooling savings plenty
  • If there were an "11" rating, Nutanix AOS support would probably exceed that too.
  • Let's be clear; any hardware/software platform is going to have problems; anyone that tells you differently is lying.
  • However, the difference with Nutanix AOS support is that you're put in touch with someone who knows the product inside out. So if you call, your problem WILL get resolved, usually the first time, by the person who responded to your ticket—no 1st/2nd/3rd line tiers to try and battle through.
  • We've logged issues that weren't Nutanix problems (windows/Hyper-V), and Nutanix AOS still worked with us to resolve them.
  • Finally, if you're in ANY doubt - go and look at their Net promoter score; then compare it with anyone else's...
  • Product Features
  • Product Usability
  • Product Reputation
Prism is the interface of Nutanix AOS. On the first launch, you're given a whistle-stop tour of the key features.
It's clean, intuitive, and very easy to pick up. However, don't expect to spend your days staring at this screen - It just works, giving you time back to get with other more important work.
We moved our ENTIRE infrastructure to Nutanix AOS, and not a single person noticed. Now, whilst that may not sound like a positive, when change is good, users don't notice!
  • Whatever the problem, Nutanix AOS is the answer.
  • Running VMware and want to save a fortune in licensing costs? Hello Nutanix AOS
  • Running Hyper-V and want decent Hypervisor functionality? Hello Nutanix AOS
  • Want a robust Hyperconverged infrastructure, managed through a single interface? Hello Nutanix AOS
  • Want to be able to update the software and firmware of that solution, with a single click and zero downtime? Hello Nutanix AOS
