These Cisco UCS machines are being used primarily as our VMware Host servers. I am amazed at how much hardware they're able to fit inside of the blades. They have been rock solid for many years. We haven't had much in the way of hardware failures. Some memory modules and a power supply. Cisco has been easy to deal with for replacing any parts that have gone bad. Even with bad memory modules, the machine kept functioning by shutting down those defective modules. Deploying new servers from a template is really easy. If you make your template an 'Updating Template' then any changes you make automatically get made on the profiles derived from the template. I'd suggest making sure you set your maintenance policy to make changes to 'On Next Boot' and the Reboot Policy to 'User Ack'. That way you don't have machines rebooting immediately after a change.

At my company, Cisco UCS Manager is used to manage over two dozen Cisco servers from blades to rack-mount to storage chassis. It allows for a single-pane of administration for all tasks such as KVM, upgrades, provisioning, etc. Because Cisco UCS Manager is accessible in all modern web browsers, it allows for flexible administration.

We use Cisco UCS Manager to manage our blade server/storage systems. With UCS Manager we have been able to have a quick all in one view of all of our server and storage systems. We can provision and decommission systems through the UCS Manager as well as increase the capacity of our systems.

We utilize a Cisco UCS Manager environment for the vast majority of our server infrastructure. We have multiple environments hosting several dozen VMware hosts, and we also utilize Cisco UCS Manager as a host environment for multiple Nutanix environments. Our environment contains a mix of blade servers and rack mount servers and hosts virtual machines for our entire campus community.

UCS Manager is used exclusively by the Systems Engineering team to manage several hundred UCS blades we have across multiple datacenters. Using UCS Manager, we are able to efficiently provision, manage, and upgrade hundreds of blades without using tons of employee resources.

Cisco UCS Manager is the core utility used to control our data center. UCS manager has just about every knob and button you could imagine a host server might need. You can control all of the hardware and integration points from UCS manager. We use it at all of our sites that have local UCS servers on them. Gaining access through Cisco UCS manager is critical to ensure our large and small data centers stay running. We use these servers for production environment for our admin networks, as well as in a manufacturing automation environments. UCS manager is a powerful tool that we rely on.

We host multiple VMware environments from our Cisco UCS. Every department within the company relies on the Cisco UCS on a daily basis. We have enjoyed the Cisco Unified Computing System Manager platform due to its fairly small footprint and ease of management. We have also found that adding and replacing gear within the Cisco chassis is extremely simple as long as you ensure firmware compatibility.

We are using Cisco's Unified Computing System Manager to manage almost all aspects of our hardware that our VMware virtual environment sits on. We manage everything from the chassis, connectivity, fiber channels, remote console access to servers, and connectivity to our VMware virtual server solutions, as well as, our backup solutions.

Cisco Unified Computing System (UCS) Manager is being utilized to manage the converged infrastructure of our organization. It is useful in seeing all hardware in a single pane of glass and be able to configure, manage and update our Cisco blade infrastructure in this manner. It is used by the data center services team. Cisco UCS addresses management problems from using multiple hardware vendors. It allows us to use a single management interface instead of many.
