“We haven’t found any workload that doesn’t run better on the Nutanix platform. As a result, we are exiting the traditional SAN environment over time as we end- of-life our current platforms and tear out the Fibre Channel infrastructure. We plan to be a Nutanix-only shop going forward—I see no reason to use anything else.”
