It is well suited for large corporate entities, whether they are in manufacturing, sales, engineering, healthcare, supply or shipping. It is easy to understand and operate once it has been initially configured. Expansion of the system is likewise easy to do once expertise has been acquired. The only difficulty with this or any cloud scenario is ensuring where the data is located and managing that securely.

Morpheus is well suited for those who want to have a management pane of glass that will allow you to see what you are consuming and how you are consuming it. It also ties into many other types of software and the development team seems to be constantly improving the product. That lends it to being a bit complicated. If you want something easy to set up, this isn't your product.
Read full review Pros We are able to automate deployment which has been a strength to the geographical distribution of the enterprise. We have been able to work with a wider variety of developer tools and haven't had to customize to fit CloudCenter. It is easier for us to allocate space and allow users to take advantage of the system directly with a minimum of overhead. Read full review Copious native 3rd party integrations. Ties into multiple public and private clouds for single management plane. True multi-tenancy. Read full review Cons The software and systems don't present a problem to us but the continued interaction with mid-level support teams and vendors can slow down implementation or correction of difficulties we experience. The continued overhead associated with peripheral training on systems we have purchased can cause delays. Language barriers sometimes show up but this, again, is due to remote middle agents that are themselves contractors of or sales agents of the main agency. It slows down communication and can introduce business difficulties. Read full review More dashboard/visualization capabilities Read full review Support Rating
We have always been able to reach the support organization at Morpheus on the rare event we needed them. They have been nothing but helpful.

We found that the cost advantages were greater by going with Cisco because of our present contracts and the materials and equipment we already had on hand. The reliability of the system, for us, outweighed any cost advantages we might have been realized by going with another provider. Certainly the service and support for the entire system is much better when handled by a single vendor with a good track record.

We previously were using VRA. VRA, while some of the new versions look interesting is hard for both administration as well as end user consumption.
Read full review Return on Investment We have had a positive return on investment by adopting Cisco CloudCenter as the system is more mature than competitors. We have saved a lot by working with them rather than continuing to act as a defacto test location for other systems. We have been able to reduce the number of staff necessary to operate the system and turn them over to more profitable work. One negative impact we have seen is that it is difficult to map where the data is located at any specific instance. Read full review Excellent monitoring tool Read full review ScreenShots
