"Nutanix works the way VMware should. Prism Central manages HCI and AHV virtualization. By easing the management burden, I’ve been able to focus on more strategic projects."
- Bret Snyder, Senior Server Engineer, Ruffalo Noel Levitz
"AHV Virtualization is one of the main distinguishing factors for Nutanix. The out-of-the-box experience is fantastic, and AHV virtualization has all the features we need."
- Jake Yang, Senior Director of Global Systems, Nasdaq
"Nutanix enables us to keep up with our fast growth rate with a very small IT team. This would not have been possible if we hadn’t migrated to Nutanix and AHV."
