Cisco UCS B-Series Review

We can configure Service Profile and the way it combines LAN, SAN and the Server on the blade


What is most valuable?

For UCS B series, its integration with devices like FI, N5K. I also like UCSM where we can configure Service Profile and the way it combines LAN, SAN, and the server on the blade. I love it.

How has it helped my organization?

I am working with a Gold Partner company and we deploy this product to our customers, and so far we have deployed it in many clients and we have not received any complaints.

What needs improvement?

GUI had some trouble before with Java updates, but that is fixed now.

For how long have I used the solution?

One to two years.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

No.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

No.

How is customer service and technical support?

10/10.

Which solutions did we use previously?

We use Dell, HP, UCS, all of them, but personally I like this product more.

How was the initial setup?

It very easy and straightforward.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

Pricing and licensing depend upon the requirements of the clients, but the recommended ones are to go with some Ethernet and Fabric ports mix.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

Yes, we give options to the customers and go for this upon their choice.

What other advice do I have?

This is a complete solution with FI.
