Companies can't remove reviews or game the system. Here's why
You are able to do anything you can imagine with these severs
Cisco UCS's usability is where they really shine compared to other server and compute platforms. Cisco has a very simple network configuration, so only a few cables to connect to the network core and you are up and running. Overall, the management interface for Cisco UCS is pretty straightforward as well. We have onboarded engineers onto our team and they can pick up basic UCS administration pretty quickly. We also like the ability to leverage APIs, etc. to automate blade and server builds.
Because of reliability and improved performance.
It's user friendly, basic functions for usage. With a standard IT support, even the functions and steps of troubleshooting are fairly easy and user friendly. Their product support team is always available as well for additional support, questions or light troubleshooting. It being a commonly used product also makes it convenient.
Usability is excellent; management is unified across LAN, SAN, and virtualization networks. The servers are highly scalable and adding new ones is super simple unlike other manufacturers.
While Cisco's hardware is solid and long running, their software is usually the weak point. I will say that they are getting better with each release but if I had to find a problem with usability that would be it. Overall usability is good when you can work around software issues.
This is probably where I will ding them the most. Cisco is a hardware company first, and a software company second (maybe third?). In the past few years, they definitely have been getting better by coming to a single UI design language but the UCS interface is still behind by quite a bit. If you don't mind running on a couple of versions old software, then you can run a more stable version and get by. If there are major security updates you may not be able to swing this, however. So just know when you're on the latest and greatest you tend to deal more with bugs.
