Who's king of the hyperconverged castle? Dell or Nutanix? It's not as clear-cut as it seems

Re: Nutanix can't hide those numbers, Cisco, VMWare, and Dell/EMC can

Hmm... so Nutanix can price a solution with a single price against a deal (and $0 against individual line items) and it's fine. But when Dell EMC or Cisco does the same, it's fudging the numbers somehow, purely because they may actually include other products in the same deal?

And RE: VxRail/vSAN/HF licensing... you do realise that they're not optional licenses right? The products don't function without them. In other words, they're "free" in the same way that AHV is "free".

Looks like the divide between marketing and cognitive dissonance is still...nonexistent.

PS: Nothing against Nutanix, but don't make it seem like they are somehow cleaner than anyone else.
