Normally, UCS Director is used primarily for orchestration, but when we look at a non-Cisco data infrastructure components, the UCS Director needs a bit more improvement in terms of integration with third-party systems and with existing older systems.We cannot depend on this solution to manage all of the data center's infrastructure.I would like to see more integration with other solutions.The product could allow more programmatic opportunities through better development of the API.Simplifying the user interface would go a long way to making it more usable.
