Nutanix gains Customers’ Choice recognition for HCI

Thu 16 Apr 2020
FYI, this story is more than a year old

Nutanix has been named by Gartner as a 2020 Gartner Peer Insights Customers’ Choice for Hyperconverged Infrastructure. 

This is the second year that Nutanix has been recognised as a Customers’ Choice.

“At a time when many organisations are struggling with the day-to-day realities of running a business remotely, we are continuing to focus on our customers by delivering an IT infrastructure that is invisible and automated, allowing teams to focus on more immediate business needs,” boats Nutanix chief operating officer David Sangster. 

“To us, being recognised as a Gartner Peer Insights Customers’ Choice for Hyperconverged Infrastructure is a great honour, and only strengthens our commitment to deliver cloud computing solutions that are flexible, simple, resilient and adaptable to customers’ changing needs, including widespread remote work.”

Nutanix hyperconverged infrastructure (HCI) integrates compute, virtualization, storage, networking and security to streamline tasks like deploying a virtual desktop environment.

Portable, subscription-based software licenses deliver flexibility so IT infrastructure is no longer coupled to specific hardware devices and configurations, which could be critically important in situations where the global supply chain is impacted.

This Customers’ Choice recognition is based on detailed feedback from 68 customer ratings in the past year across multiple vendors in the hyperconverged infrastructure space. Nutanix has 301 reviews since the market began to be tracked within the Gartner Peer Insights platform and holds an average score of 4.7 out of 5.

Nutanix also claims an average net promoter score of 90 over the past six years, as well as the 97% customer retention rate as of the end of the second quarter of the fiscal year 2020. 

Reviews (gathered by Nutanix)

"We have fully implemented our Nutanix platform here. The staff at Nutanix have been very helpful from helping us plan our implementation to providing us with solution architects to help us through solving how to incorporate some of our challenging gaming software pieces." – Database Administrator in the services industry

"The best hyperconvergence infrastructure, I have used for several years helping us manage our entire virtual environment and at the same time monitoring the services and something very important maintaining the continuity of the business since it is composed of nodes that share their resources and this is shown as a single resource say disks, memories, CPU and other resources found in each of the nodes." – System Operator in the healthcare industry

"The product and professional services exceeded our expectations. We are still using VMware with Nutanix, but the swap from the traditional 3-tier system to Nutanix was simple. We used professional services as well, but after having them onsite, I think we could have gone without them it was that easy to setup. The product works great, it's easy to navigate, and it's pretty intuitive. Nutanix continues to innovate and create new products and integration." – IT Manager in the finance industry

"It's a complete 100% software-defined beast that works well. We have not had any issue. I still have yet to see something not working." – Network Engineer in the education industry
