Prism is the hypervisor and hardware management tool of the future

I have more time now to focus on important projects and company initiatives, rather than micro managing our virtual infrastructure.

Pros

Prism is feature rich and designed to be simple... and I mean really simple. Gone are the days of requiring extensive hypervisor management knowledge. One of many examples of how it outshines its competition is the ability to upgrade hosts during production without interruption or micromanaging moving VM's around.

Cons

Its feature rich, but it has a ways to go to get to where some of its competitors are. It's getting there... their feature road map includes many of the advanced features you may be familiar with other products, such as DR failover planning, but they are not yet here today.

A very viable alternative to 3-Tier Hosting

The ease of monitoring and maintaining your VM Environment has been greatly reduced with the use of Nutanix Prism. Whether you still use vmWare or thier built in product Acropolis to host VMs, if you can handle the price tag, it is well worth the investment.

Pros

It comes in a box ready to go. If you need to add capacity, you just add boxes. The software gives so many reports and options that someone in the vmware world would do a task and say to themselves "theres no way that is all I have to do to make that happen". But yes it is. So intuitive and clearly made by people who have to manage a VM Environment themselves.

Cons

There was a major stumbling block rolling it out, sufice to say they keep several network subnets as built it and we were unlucky enough to use one of them. Support worked around it, but it was a major headache.

Reasons for Switching to AOS Distributed Storage

The load balancing and failover features made it a no brainer. I used to manage CPU, Network, and storage - now with Nutanix Prism, it is all in one place.

Excellent Virtualization Platform

Pros

Basically, what we really like about Nutanix is that we can make sure that our infrastructure is running in a high availability platform. Additional to that, we are able to upgrade VMs without an outage. Moreover, features like DRP are embedded

Cons

Unfortunately, Nutanix by design is not supporting external devices like a Storage for Fiber channel.

Reasons for Choosing AOS Distributed Storage

We preferred Prism because some features like DRP are integrated.

Nutanix the wonderful monster

Easy to use and work on the device which simplifies lots of work and helps to easy way to upgrade the AOS, AHV in a rolling fashion without any downtime for the user VM's. And Nutanix helps to remove all legacy hardware and consolidate all servers in a cluster with 2U of rack space.

Pros

The HCI is the best and pioneer in the market with its native AHV. It's a wonderful, simplified, converged device. Easy to use and understand and deploy very quickly. And the prism console give a simple GUI console to monitor the entire hardware infra of storage, network and compute as well as the Client VMs.

Cons

Nothing to like the least. I like all features and its a wonderful beast with its AHV and AOS beauty.

Nutanix, Function not lost with form

The entire business has moved from a HPE solution to a Nutanix solution. The Prism interface is still easier to use then the rest of the competitors. Over all this software has been extremely reliable, and the support has been phenomenal.

Pros

Nutanix Prism interface, has nearly everything you need to manage your storage cluster. It allows for monitoring, configuration and maintenance in such an easy way directly in the GUI. It is easier to use the the major competitors, while not losing any of its function. It is an extremely functional and well laid out interface.

Cons

Of the mark, Prism can be abit daunting to the un-initiated. It is very forgiving but until you get practice with it some of the processes will seem as though they are missing or do not function properly, while in fact most of the time you will be looking in the wrong stop or using the wrong tool.
