A Nutanix prospect published this INCREDIBLE video with a bake-off (POC) they did between EVO:RAIL and Nutanix. Now, before people go and say it’s not a apple to apples comparison I gotta say that although the hardware model between the two solutions might be different, the price list for the solutions is only approximately $5K more towards Nutanix, yet providing much better performance and much lower $/IO and $/GB due to Nutanix compression, de-duplication and VAAI. Reach out to one of the many Nutanix partners to run your own tests and comparisons.
Here is what the customer had to say about the performance tests.
My company is currently evaluating the Nutanix and EVO:RAIL hyper-converged platforms. Wanted to share the outcome of a test I ran.
Very basic test … how quickly can each of these platforms deploy 50 guestVMs from template. The template consists of a single 60GB ThickEagerZeroed vmdk. The guestVMs are being deployed via a PowerCLI script. Nutanix took just over 1 minute 35 seconds to deploy all 50 guestVM’s. EVO:Rail finally finished in just over 1 hour and 45 minutes. Crazy performance difference!

To the now Nutanix customer, thanks for sharing this video!
