Cisco UCS Director Review

Flexible and the documentation is good, but better integration with other stacks is needed

What is our primary use case?

The typical use case is for web services. It is integrated with our database.

What is most valuable?

The documentation is very good.

What needs improvement?

I would like to see more flexibility when it comes to managing other stacks, like VMware virtualization.

For how long have I used the solution?

I have been using Cisco UCS Director for about one year.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

The system runs smoothly. We have not had any big problems.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

The scalability is very good and it is flexible.

How are customer service and technical support?

Technical support is very good overall. They have specialized engineers and they are very proficient.

How was the initial setup?

We had a small problem with incompatibility but it was resolved by Cisco support. It was not a big issue. In total, it took about six months for the deployment.

What about the implementation team?

Our in-house team handled the deployment.

What other advice do I have?

My advice to anybody who is implementing this solution is to first consider and understand the use case. Think about your high-level design, the business requirements, how scalable and how flexible it has to be, and what your own availability is.

Overall, I think that this is a very good product, although nothing is perfect. There are still some small improvements that can be made to make it better.

I would rate this solution a seven out of ten.
