The solution is highly scalable, mainly because of the templates that make it easy for you to actually edit on the system.

The interface and the way it is constructed is very complex. They should work to simplify it. It's quite difficult for somebody who doesn't know the product very well. Users should be able to get proficient with it faster. There's definitely room for improvement there.

Cisco UCS Manager is not a scalable solution because once you have 160 blades, it cannot be expanded more.

We have three data centers and if we could manage all three data centers using one interface, it would be great.

I found it a bit of a challenge to get training on UCSM. I've been trying to get that for some time now. I feel like I have to figure it out a lot of things myself. For years I've to log calls with support whenever I've got challenges that I cannot resolve. If I had some training or more manuals, I'd be better able to handle more things on my own.

I would like to see Cisco UCS optionally work as a hyper-converged system because right now, it only operates as a converged system.
