They want to manage Cisco HyperFlex by integrating it with their own management solution.""There is a VMware plugin for HyperFlex, which sometimes it hangs up in our environment, and doesn't function well.""I would like to see them expand onto the cloud.""Sometimes when there are multiple technologies involved in a support case, this is when there is a bit of a lag.""The storage layer seems to be a little better on the VMware than on HyperFlex side."
