Cisco UCS Manager

It [Cisco UCS Manager] is extremely well suited to large virtual infrastructure environments with resource dense blades. This solution is also great if you want to consolidate a large number of servers (if they are servers that need to stay physical, but can fit in the profile of a blade) - this would reduce data center space utilization as well as power and cooling. Cisco UCS Manager is also great if you're looking for centralized management of a larger number of servers. This would not be a great solution if you have a very small shop - it's not cheap and probably wouldn't give you a ROI if you only have a couple dozen servers total. I'd say it would be overkill for small shops, but if you have the money and don't care, you'll still like it.

Our data being the primary operational product has been managed effectively by this software. It is best suited in storing data in our cloud servers and transferring files across our company. It is easy and flexible to work with this product. It provides end to end encryption of data promoting data safety and transfer. Compatibility with our operating system is effective and all services have been great.

Cons

Cisco UCS Manager

  • Automation: There is a simple power-shell CMD lets, but it leaves more to be desired.
  • Navigation: Navigating the interface can be confusing.
  • Integration: Integration with ESXi hosts while doing FW upgrades would be hugely beneficial without the need for additional tools.

Cyberduck

  • It could be a lot easier to grab a download link. Currently you have to right-click, scroll to "Copy URL," and then pick your desired version of the download URL. There are WAY too many options, and it makes it difficult. I have never needed any option other than the HTTPS version of the URL. So it's overly complicated when it doesn't need to be.
  • There are at times completely unnecessary alert messages that pop up. Usually when connecting to a server to upload a file it will pop up a message that says the connection has been verified and it's safe to continue uploading. It's really unnecessary and annoying to have to dismiss it every time.
  • I think the UI could be a little less cramped. Everything is so close together--really feels like a dated UI. If items were just a bit more spaced out, it would improve the UI significantly.

I really like the basic interface and folder like structure. It makes me feel like I'm in a regular folder window on my Mac. Navigation is simple. The toolbar is customizable to be able to add or remove icons to improve the simplicity and ease of use of the application. The app is very simply designed, which I appreciate.

I've never needed to use their support service. The few issues I've had were user-error and quickly resolved with a little googling

Alternatives Considered

Cisco UCS Manager

I think UCS Manager would be able very comparable to other vendors offerings when it comes to server configuration. I think Cisco did a good job in giving you full access to many options that you might not see with Dell or HPE. Every manufacturer would need a similar tool to control their server environment, but I think what Cisco has built into their Manager is a little better than others I've used. You can just see and change so many settings. I would say that is also a bit of a negative by a little bit because sometimes it is hard to dig in and find what you need to change and often might need to reach out to TAC or take a training course to understand all of the interface.

Cyberduck

Cyberduck has the most suitable storage package that we have managed easily as compared to other versions. It is easy to access from anywhere and follow the given simple instructions due to its simple user interface. Transferring files from one directory to the other faster and more secure due to end to end encryption. Downloading and uploading files to our cloud servers is easy and searching for stored files is flexible.

Return on Investment

Cisco UCS Manager

  • The positive is I was able to consolidate my small server infrastructure from 3 racks to one rack giving me space back and much power savings
  • The negative would be it could feel a little daunting to manage as there are many tabs and pieces to the interface.

Cyberduck

  • Being free and with a supportive forum for troubleshooting, Cyberduck is a benefit for any cost-conscious organization.
  • Being an easy-to-use FTP client means that business users can be taught how to utilize the product, allowing for our IT department to have increased focus on other, higher-skill tasks.
