The reason why we chose Cohesity (replacing TSM) was to move AWAY from 'more stuff' to manage and to simplify support calls. If Nutanix really wants to win more business, expand/enhance software to allow me to run/store primary and backup data and manage the entire cluster through Nutanix. I'm assuming that's the ultimate vision and that they'll cut out these third parties in the not-too-distant future.

      It's like you didn't even read the article. The local storage medium is on the same appliance based, scale-out hardware as regular Nutanix only with limited node form factors. The software is bundled in the solution and managed centrally through the same management play as the other Nutanix product. The gripes you listed are invalid and I think the only thing you took away from the article was some butt hurt over the author declaring a battle with Cohesity.
