Overall Satisfaction with Cisco Business Edition 7000

It is being used across whole organization for hosting CUCM, CUC, etc. and to support telephone services via Cisco IP Phones and Jabber, etc.
  • Comes pre loaded with OVAs.
  • Comes preloaded with ESXi on some edition.
  • Small box with small form factor and can host all major collab apps.
  • Lacks on proper cooling.
  • Faced some major high iowait issues with the HDD.
  • We were able to sell it to many customers and has proved beneficial always.
  • Less number of complaints.
  • Amazing support from Cisco TAC.
MS Teams again is an app hosted on cloud and earlier on box like BE and I feel hardware of Cisco is better and support from TAC is way better than anybody.
