Overall Satisfaction with Nutanix AOS

Our company is engaged in software development. Nutanix AOS is used in our company as a virtualization platform, where many different types of workloads work. Here we have a DEV and PROD environments, various services in the form of virtual machines and k8s nodes. Nutanix AOS solves the tasks of central management and monitoring of these workloads.

  • Product Features
  • Product Usability
Due to the cool DFS architecture, Nutanix has good read performance for loads. In general, everything works well. We only ran into problems with very specific workloads that did not allow multithreading. It is also worth noting that loads should be tuned according to best practices for best performance, which is not always an easy task.
Nutanix [AOS] is a hyper-converged solution, and in the vSphere it was originally designed for the use of SAN, although they also have a hyper-converged solution. But the architecture and load testing showed the inconsistency of the hyper-converged solution from VMware.

[Nutanix AOS] is good when you need easy scaling and high reliability. The good architecture of the solution allows to solve the tasks set for the platform. This solution allows to reduce the number of personnel serving the infrastructure due to the ease of management and a good knowledge base. As a disadvantage, I would attribute the complexity of customizing some types of loads to optimal work on DFS, for example, high-load databases.
