Alternatives Considered

There are good use cases for both technologies, and each will have its place, UCS X-Series is good when looking at additional or external Storage solutions, and scalable computing performance in a compact form factor. Cisco HX is good for incorporating Compute and Storage in single ease of use form factor.
