Overall Satisfaction with Cisco Business Edition 7000

I've set up collaboration nodes for a few of our customers. Used this to support small-sized and medium-sized deployments. Small being under 1000 users and medium being a 3000 user set up. Application servers came pre-installed/pre-deployed, so that saved a lot of our time which usually would've been spent in downloading iso files copying them to datastores and setting up the nodes.
  • The fact that the nodes come pre-installed.
  • Easy to set up.
  • Saves a lot of installation, pre-installation time.
  • Integrated email notifications on hardware failure.
  • Expensive
  • Easier and faster deployments.
  • Costly.
I've used 220s and 240s too, but it takes a lot of time to set them up, a lot of time to download the iso files, and set up of datastores. 7k saves the engineer a lot of pre-build assessment and evaluation time. Gets a lot done in a lot less time, returns are a happy engineer and a happier customer.

Its well suited for small to medium scale deployments if the infra is in-house. Webex and other SaaS solutions are in demand these days and are cost-effective too, but if for some reason your deployments need a locally-managed data center, then go for the BE7K or the BE6K depending upon your requirement.
