Overall Satisfaction with Cisco UCS Series

We currently utilize the UCS platform for our virtual compute, physical compute, as well as SASE application with a physical presence. Having a proven leader in this sector allows us to bring stability in our environment. Standardizing in one platform allows upgrades to be easier to perform and maintenance negotiations much easier.

Are you happy with Cisco UCS Series's feature set?


Did Cisco UCS Series live up to sales and marketing promises?

Would you buy Cisco UCS Series again?


Great suited in DC/farms where you want to standardize on platforms. Cisco UCS could become less of a player if they were more agile to agnostic vendors. Creating a proprietary bubble is a big deterrent.
