Enterprise IT leaders love to compare notes about their real-world experience with TI products and services. This sharing often goes beyond mere feature comparisons to include a holistic view of how products and vendors have positively (or negatively) impacted their business.

Why We Think Gartner Peer Insights Matters

The “Voice of the Customer” is a document that synthesizes Gartner Peer Insights’ reviews into insights for IT decision makers. The aggregated peer perspective, along with individual detailed reviews, is complementary to Gartner expert research and can play a key role in your buying process, as it focuses on a direct peer experience of implementing and operating a solution. 

Fourth Consecutive HCI Category Recognition

In our opinion, it's rewarding to receive our fourth Gartner Peer Insight Customers' Choice recognition for Hyperconverged Infrastructure (HCI), especially given the broad expansion of our full-stack capabilities. For us, this acknowledges our engineering discipline in keeping a focus on the HCI customer experience even as new capabilities are added to the Nutanix® Cloud Platform.

Second-time Recognition for the Distributed File and Object Category

It's also notable that Nutanix is the only HCI vendor recognized as a Customers’ Choice in this market. Nutanix provides customers with the unique ability to use bloc files and object storage on the same platform.

The Expanding Nutanix Customer Experience

A compelling benefit of HCI products is management simplicity. It's instructive to see how this management value is similarly appreciated by file and object users. One Nutanix user described how the Nutanix hypervisor found in our HCI offering is similarly providing value in the distributed file and object experience as follows:

"Simple and secure hypervisor compared to others like hyperv. It accommodates other hypervisors. We got good support for the information we needed during setup and managing clusters. We also love pay as you grow model and as it saves money and only buy what we need at the moment with adding as need arises. We are also happy with software batches advisory on regular basis, so we are sure of security of our infrastructure." (Reviews have been edited to account for errors and readability.)

We are incredibly appreciative of our customers who have taken time to share their experiences and look forward to more joint success in the future.
