New Nutanix install - vSphere 5.5.0

While transfering a 200GB file on a Virtual Host from the C: Drive to the E: drive I'm not getting anything faster than 50mb/s and sometimes down to 25mb/s.

Anyone else seeing this type of behavior?

Or have a solution to resolve slow speeds?

What Nutanix Model you are using in the setup ?
How many VM's are running on the node where you are running this file copy ?
Can you try copying smaller file maybe ~50gb and check the results ?
Did you ran diagnostics VM before creating productions VMs in the cluster ?

What is the OS of the VM and what type of scsi controller is it using for the virtual disks?
I would suggest to add a second SCSI controller to the VM and have the E: drive connected through it,
Use the VMware Paravirtual controller as the type for both
