Cons
"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.""The installation and upgrade sytems need to be improved.""In the next release, I would like to see improvements made to their security.""The pricing can be better.""We have three data centers and if we could manage all three data centers using one interface, it would be great.""Upgrading the firmware is a difficult procedure.""I would like to see Cisco UCS optionally work as a hyper-converged system because right now, it only operates as a converged 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."

More Cisco UCS Manager Cons »

"It would be better if we can add every HPE device to OneView, such as MSA, as well as the other servers like the DL server and ML server."

More HPE OneView Cons »
