What would be the most valuable features for us are things we can't even work with yet. We work with an older version of the product that cannot do some things that we need. We can't install the next version because we cannot find great local support assistance for Cisco. So, instead of using these features through Cisco, which is eventually what we want to do, we blend in with other solutions like Nutanix. The upgrade in Nutanix is very easy and doesn't require downtime. But with Cisco, we have already products and services in the server. We can't afford the downtime that it would take to make the upgrade and we can't find anyone professional to assist us with the problem at this point. View full review »

Manager - Reporting and Analysis (BI) at a tech services company with 10,001+ employees
Cisco UCS Manager is a simple solution. Their technical support is good because whenever we need to generate a technical log, we can generate it from the console itself. It gives ease of management. Cisco UCS Manager is overall a good package because it offers a GUI interface and a CLI. We use Cisco UCS PowerTool to manage through. View full review »

Network and Security Manager at a energy/utilities company with 5,001-10,000 employees
The most valuable features are the conferencing in the video and audio, it's a promising solution. Cisco has the edge on the data portion. The compatibility between the Cisco infrastructure along with the UCS manager or any collaboration solution definitely has more levels. The Voicemail is smart, it does a good job. It is a luxury that Cisco is providing. View full review »

The most valuable features are flexibility and management. If you want a non-standard network or SAN configuration then Cisco UCS is very flexible. You can manipulate the ESX server network connection or SAN connections with Cisco UCS. We are comfortable using Cisco UCS in our virtualization environment. We can control anything in the network or SAN site. View full review »

If I'm playing with a new host, the most valuable aspect is that those servers can get a host up and running in quickly. View full review »

Cisco UCS has a fantastic portal to do the core configuration. The connection between the Cisco UCS server and the network is easy to use and easy to manage.
