Cisco UCS B-Series Review

It has integration with vSphere, but UCS Manager should be rewritten in HTML5.

Valuable Features

The VM-FEX, hardware integration with VMware vSphere.

Improvements to My Organization

It's faster to provision virtual servers than physical. Also, it has very good orchestration with UCS Director 5.2.

Room for Improvement

The UCS Manager is written in Java and has many problems after the new Java releases. It should be rewritten in HTML5.
