We could literally swap out a piece of hardware, slide one back into the chassis, and immediately - about three reboots later - it was identical. We didn't have to worry about configuring it, we didn't have to spend any time getting anything into place. It came back and it healed the environment almost immediately.Comprehensive dashboard, ease of use are key features.

The automation within the solution needs to be simplified.Cisco UCS Manager is not a scalable solution because once you have 160 blades, it cannot be expanded more.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.I would like to see Cisco UCS optionally work as a hyper-converged system because right now, it only operates as a converged system.Upgrading the firmware is a difficult procedure.We have three data centers and if we could manage all three data centers using one interface, it would be great.The pricing can be better.In the next release, I would like to see improvements made to their security.

Sometimes the interface can be a little confusing, sometimes the error messages can be very cryptic, as far as what's actually going on.The main problem that we run into, as far as stability goes, is when something loses its profile. Sometimes it requires jumping through a number of "hoops" to really get it back.I would like to see them expand into other cloud platforms, non-HPE platforms.
