"This solution allows me to have true visibility for any metrics when it comes to my cloud, and private.""This solution makes it a lot easier to figure out trends within very different data sources, which makes it easy to see why something is misbehaving.""The features I find most valuable is the querying and alerting capabilities.""People are very pleased with the implementation.""The most valuable aspects of the solution are its ease of use and its ease of implementation.""No issues with stability."

We haven't had any issues with them. We're satisfied with the level of service they provide our company."

"I am very satisfied with the technical support.""The most valuable features are the dashboards.""Since we began using Nutanix the performance for virtual desktops is much better.""The GUI and the dashboard are impressive. I like that you can modify the GUI and the dashboard as per your requirements.""The centralized management of Nutanix Prism is the best feature.""The storage management is one of the best.""The Clone and Snapshot features are two of the most valuable aspects of the solution for our organization.

Cons
"I would like to see integration with Kubernetes cluster and APIs so that you can manage the entire stack.""I would like to see more out-of-the-box dashboards for in-depth application monitoring of standard products that are out there.""In the new version, I would love to see more prediction capabilities. It would be great if one could see the alerts get a little more enriched with information and become more human-friendly instead of the technical stuff that they put in there. I think those would be really awesome outcomes to get.""The implementation is a long process that should be improved.""They could make it more easy to plug-in data so that a nontechnical person will be able to use it, like accountants or finance people. That way they don't have to ask us.""It could use a URL document server. Everything in the market is moving towards automation and everybody's looking for the single click operations as well relational data locality."

"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 »

"Perhaps the interface can be more intuitive.""In the next release, I would like the ability to browse data stores.""The main area where an improvement could be made would be the pricing.""The automation needs to be improved, as there are several challenges.""I think that the Nutanix Prism Pro the terms it uses, it's not very user-friendly.""The price could be improved.""The solution could be a bit more user-friendly. The dashboard and configuration should be much easier to use.""Although this solution has very good analytics capabilities, it can be even more granular."
