Cisco UCS Manager

If you have a data center and use the Cisco UCS Blade platform with SAN storage, then UCS manager is the right tool for you. Managing one or a few host servers with UCS manager is pretty easy. You can see pretty quick what is going on with your servers. If you need to configure the fabric interconnects, you pretty much need to use UCS manager to do it. I find that it meets the needs for almost everything we do with the UCS C and B servers. If you have hyper flex servers from Cisco, then you would not want to use UCS manger. If you are not using Cisco servers you may not be able to use UCS manager.

Cyberduck

Any time you need or want to use an ftp client, an app such as Cyberduck is perfectly suited. I feel it works best when you're working with another business or vendor. If you need to send files to a client that are too large for email, I typically use WeTransfer, but mainly because you don't need to sign in to use that.

Cyberduck

  • File uploads are exceptionally easy. Just pick the server you want to upload something to, and drag/drop the file(s). Simple.
  • File downloads are also easy--just right-click on a file and click the "Download" option.
  • It is also easy to create folders on your servers. It works the same way as creating new folders on your local machine.

Cyberduck

  • When entering incorrect information, it can be difficult to realize what's not working.
  • The ability to see only one "layer" while navigating can be limiting.

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.

Developers and testers of Cybderduck seem to be a close-knit, active community, and proud of their product. Cyberduck's main website has an easy-to-use forum where any question can be asked, as well as a well-developed catalogue of FAQs. I have visited help pages for other applications that have sometimes had a contemptuous attitude from a small coterie of administrators, but Cyberduck's community is not at all like that.

Alternatives Considered

Cisco UCS Manager

We were a IBM Blade Center shop. IBM was easier to manage. However, it was not as all inclusive. The IBM served us well, but when we started pricing out options Cisco came in a little less expensive on the current promotion they were running. The Cisco UCS has proven to be more stable and reliable, as well.

Cyberduck

While these other tools I've used will get the job done, neither of them were (a) as easy to set up and configure as Cyberduck, and (b) were as effective at ongoing management of files with my remote server. I think it's because Cyberduck has very specific configurations that are tailored to the remote server I am using, making it a much more seamless experience.

Return on Investment

Cisco UCS Manager

  • We were able to achieve a positive ROI on the system within 18 months. This might be unique to our situation. Priced against buying traditional servers and fabrics it would stack up favorably.
  • The ability to easily expand our infrastructure with blades is a strength. The profiles allow us to add a new server which is configured and deployed in a much shorter amount of time than traditional server infrastructure.
