Overall Satisfaction with Cisco UCS Series

Cisco UCS [Series] is currently being used by our department only. It is very compatible with our current environment where we use many Cisco technologies. It provides unified computing and increases agility. It helps in maintaining speed while progressing in the path of business scalability. It automates the deployment of our in-house applications.
  • Unified computing
  • Installation of VM Management
  • Fast input/output speed
  • Sometimes it is not very stable.
  • There is a need of improvement in UCS Manager controls.
  • It works quite well with Cisco technologies, but it doesn’t support other storages.
  • We were able to maintain the performance and speed while scaling the business.
  • We had to invest less in terms of money and effort as we already had Cisco technologies in place.
  • It is fast and delivers the required output accurately.
Reasons for selecting Cisco UCS Series against its competitors are as follows: - Most of our in-house technologies are Cisco [brand] and thus it is easily compatible with our environment - It is reliable and trusted as we already had good responses from other Cisco technologies and thus we went ahead with Cisco UCS Series.
Cisco provided unified computing facilities and at the same time it maintains separation between distinct tasks and thus i has resulted in faster computing and the speed has improved. This has helped us in maintaining our performance while following the path of scalability. This would not have been easy if the unified computing was not used properly.
My organization is very satisfied with Cisco UCS Series configurations. The advantage that we have is that many of our technologies are taken from Cisco, so we already have a strong presence of Cisco in-house. Thus, it becomes easier to integrate new technology in[to] the existing system. The customer support is also satisfactory.

Scenarios where Cisco UCS Series is well suited: - When you already have Cisco technologies in place, then Cisco UCS Series works best for unified computing purpose[s]. - It works well with the installation of VM management. Less suitable scenarios: - When you have non-Cisco technologies in place and you rely on other storage, Cisco UCS Series is not that stable.
