The Forrester Wave™ Vendor Summary (strengths and weakness) - NUTANIX
Nutanix is pushing the line between hyperconverged and cloud native.
Nutanix is known for simplifying infrastructure complexity and is applying that philosophy to hybrid cloud infrastructure as well. Nutanix’s dedicated customer base stands out, and the company boasts a Net Promoter Score℠ (NPS) of more than 90. It has the second largest HCI market presence by revenue and customers. The Nutanix vision focuses on building a hybrid and multi-cloud platform for business applications, easing adoption of cloud-native architecture. It has a strong partner ecosystem, but there’s room for growth with both hardware vendors and hyperscalers. Pricing is simple, flexible, and very competitive. Nutanix puts customers at the heart of its innovation strategy, using its strong community ties to source new features for its roadmap. The company has a compelling and aggressive feature roadmap centered on data services, multi-cloud scaling, and containers, but delivery on its roadmap has been shaky in the past.
Nutanix has excellent, modern GPU support; its Flow Virtual Networking provides great network virtualization function support; and the platform has workflows for containers, including OpenShift integration and its own Nutanix Kubernetes Engine. Nutanix supports its AHV hypervisor as well as VMware’s ESXi hypervisor. It also features strong cloud replication and migration capabilities. The platform has best-in-class scores for storage functionality and operations. It is highly securable with advanced encryption options and certified FIPS 140-2 compliance. Reference customers are satisfied with the platform and say that they often wish they had adopted AHV upfront for ease of management and licensing reasons. Nutanix is a good fit for customers looking for a simple, scalable hyperconverged platform designed to enable cloud-native architecture in or out of the public cloud.
