A user-friendly and easy-to-use solution to improve network performance and security

What is our primary use case?

We use this solution to generate workflows. It is deployed in our private cloud environment.

Pros and Cons

  • "This is a user-friendly solution that is very good and easy to use."
  • "I would like to see more integration with other solutions."

What other advice do I have?

This is a product that I recommend for others. The biggest lesson that I have learned from this solution is that you have to have patience at the beginning. You cannot rush it. This is a good product, but improvements never end. I would rate this solution an eight out of ten.

Strong solution that unifies computer systems while still being easy to manage

What is our primary use case?

Our primary use for Cisco UCS is workflow enhancement.

Pros and Cons

  • "A product that really aids in systems management without complexity."
  • "The product could allow more programmatic opportunities through better development of the API."

What other advice do I have?

I think this solution should be considered an eight out of ten. To get a ten from me and for what I do, there has to be more flexibility in the API. I'm tired of being the tip of the sword. Enhance programming and programmability. As I said, I don't know if there's somebody else who does something like Cisco's UCS management. So I think my capabilities kinda get pigeonholed a little bit.

Brings agility to our organization, allowing for better manageability and faster deployment

What is our primary use case?

We primarily use this solution for automation. In my team, we manage approximately one thousand UCS blades. As such, scalability is very important. We use UCS director for simplified deployment, where we can use a single pane of glass to view everything across our thirty-five to forty data centers that we have globally.

Pros and Cons

  • "UCS director enables us to be more productive and more agile, and also more self-sufficient because we don't have to depend on anybody else."
  • "Simplifying the user interface would go a long way to making it more usable."

What other advice do I have?

I am very happy with the product, and we will be pushing it to its limits as we go forward. My management team likes the fact that we are now more agile. When we have new business, we no longer have to wait for weeks to get systems into production. It is now a matter of days, or sometimes hours, from the time we receive shipments at a data center to the time it's live in production. Without UCS director it wouldn't be possible. As your environment grows, manageability becomes a problem. When you're trying to deploy rapidly, and your goal is to get to market as quickly as possible, you need to…
