Integration with the ACI network is very easy but it's difficult to integrate with other vendors
Pros and Cons
  • "It's very easy to integrate with the ACI network."
  • "Lacks easy integration with other vendors."

What is our primary use case?

Our primary use case of HyperFlex is for storage. We are customers of Cisco. 

What is most valuable?

The integration to the network is a great thing. It's very easy to integrate with the ACI network which is Cisco's new network topology. It improves the accessibility of the data on HyperFlex, on their storage. It's similar to V-Storage on VMware and it integrates very well with the network.

What needs improvement?

I'd like to see easier integration with other vendors. For example, it wasn't that easy to integrate with VMware initially but eventually it worked. Ideally, I'd like to see the option of integrating with those devices on cloud, to use storage from our on-prem in a bucket in the cloud. We haven't yet seen any documentation regarding that. We need to find a way to share resources between on-prem and cloud.

For how long have I used the solution?

We've had this solution implemented for five years.

Learn what your peers think about Cisco HyperFlex HX-Series. Get advice and tips from experienced pros sharing their opinions. Updated: April 2024.
767,496 professionals have used our research since 2012.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

Initially, HyperFlex wasn't so stable but from the last update, it's been very stable.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

The solution is very scalable. 

How was the initial setup?

The initial setup is not so straightforward, but as soon as it's set up, it's easy to integrate with other things. We generally deploy in-house with some assistance from Cisco. When we initially implemented, the deployment took a while because it was new to us, and new to the market. In particular, the integration to VMware wasn't easy, but since then, it has been very smooth. The entire company uses this solution.

What other advice do I have?

I would recommend this product, I think it's a good device to use. It's not for medium-sized businesses, more for enterprise-level. The integration with VMware is fairly easy and smooth nowadays; it's fairly stable and scalable. It's a good product to try out. 

I rate this solution seven out of 10.

Offers very good data protection and provides effective system uptime availability
Pros and Cons
  • "Offers very good data protection and provides system uptime availability effectively."
  • "Lacks some integration and documentation could be improved."

What is our primary use case?

We are partners and integrators of HyperFlex and I am a company Deputy Operative Director of IT.

How has it helped my organization?

HyperFlex has benefited us because there are no additional storage requirements and it requires less effort from the server and services in general. 

What is most valuable?

This solution offers very good data protection and also provides system uptime availability more effectively than the majority of other servers. It can calculate the multiple failures that give better uptime on the nodes. It provides good performance. HyperFlex has great scalability opportunity. 

What needs improvement?

Every node has a storage controller VM that checks identity and I think that should be eliminated in order to optimize the resource utilized. I'd like to see the ability to integrate with HPE because SimpliVity has some backup-live features which are useful for us. Finally, some improvement to the documentation would be helpful. Expecting some improvements in restore point and failover mechanism. 

For how long have I used the solution?

I've been using this solution for two years. 

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

Cisco HyperFlex is stable. We faced some issues because it has single dependency on the caching disk, and when that goes down it all goes down. It has only happened once. That aside, it's a stellar solution.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

The solution is robustly scalable

How are customer service and support?

The customer support is very good. 

How would you rate customer service and support?

Positive

How was the initial setup?

The implementation isn't too complex but there are some requirements, including pre-deployment which requires a lot of documentation and security such as security management, secured data, VM and the like. We used a local partner to assist with deployment. We have a team of six that were involved in the implementation and with data center maintenance.

What about the implementation team?

We partnered with a SI team and our in-house team also worked equally.  

What was our ROI?

Organization can achieve a good value of ROI. It depends on organization to organization and also based on purposes. 

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

We have a three-year license with Cisco and it's a reasonable price. 

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We had previously used converged networks and when we decided to move to a hyper-converged infrastructure we evaluated several solutions including Dell EMC and HPE SimpliVity. We checked several criteria including financial, features, technical issues, and availability. We found that the HyperFlex performance gave us added benefits so we went with that.

What other advice do I have?

I rate this solution eight out of 10. 

Which deployment model are you using for this solution?

Public Cloud

If public cloud, private cloud, or hybrid cloud, which cloud provider do you use?

Straightforward to set up with good replication and the ability to expand
Pros and Cons
  • "The initial setup is very straightforward."
  • "They should give us a little more information about how to use the CLI and offer more commands."

What is our primary use case?

Our workload is very heavy. We always acquire support from the tech engineer from Cisco, and they are always there for assistance and provide us the necessary health and guidance. In our environment, we manage to patch our infrastructure regularly, and we don't want to miss any patches. This sometimes it requires a lot of effort, and sometimes the updates are not recommended, and we have to wait for the recommended version. The patch management can impact us in our scope. This helps us centralize everything to make things easier. 

What is most valuable?

One of the major features of HX is that you have the replication factor, and you have the option to copy your data - and not just once. You also have the option to copy it twice or even get a third copy. It depends on the RF while deploying the checks. This is one of the great benefits. That way, if there is a major outage and you lose one of the nodes, you still have your data, and the data store is up and running, and your service won't be impacted. This is very beneficial for our company as we own a service that should be up and running 24/7. It's related to one of the government sectors, and it's very critical to have it always up and to avoid any downtime.

The initial setup is very straightforward. 

It's stable.

We can easily scale the solution. 

What needs improvement?

The port could be improved. They have a robo port and can build a cluster with two nodes. This one needs a bit more focus. They need to provide us with more advice or maybe some documentation or some instructions for best practices, so we can leverage it effectively. 

They should give us a little more information about how to use the CLI and offer more commands. Right now, if we can't find what we need, we need to raise a ticket or send an email. Sometimes we don't have that time to wait for the ticket or the case to be assigned. We should just have access to information about the CLI and various commands.

For how long have I used the solution?

I've been using the HX for almost three years.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

It's a stable solution. Sometimes we face an issue regarding the hard disk. We might find that it's unhealthy and must be replaced by Cisco. This can be easily monitored. 

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

It's a scalable solution. 

You can upgrade or add many hard disks so the business can keep continuity and scalability. It's also based on your business scope. We have ten branches. The ten branches are variants between the HX nodes. Some of them have ten hard disks, and some of them do not. Some of them have more. In any case, we find it very simple to scale where needed. 

We have six system administrators working directly with the solution.

I'm not sure if there is a plan to increase usage just yet.  

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

We did not previously use a different solution. 

How was the initial setup?

The solution is easy to set up. Once you choose the cluster mode that you want to go through, you can put in all the IPs, and HX will start to build the clusters across the nodes. While it's a little bit complex at the beginning, when you get used to it, it's simple.

We have two people available to maintain the solution once it is deployed. 

What about the implementation team?

We have a partner for support, and they do most of the work. We do a bit ourselves in-house as well. Some of us on the interior team have an HX certification and have strong knowledge of the solution. I'm working to be certified myself right now. 

What was our ROI?

We have seen an ROI while using this product. 

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

I'm not aware of the exact costs of the solution. 

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We looked at VxRail from Dell and Nutanix. We chose Cisco as we use Cisco a lot in our company.

What other advice do I have?

I would suggest new users read the documentation very well and prepare an action plan based on their design. They have to address all the possibilities and have a rollback plan in case something goes wrong. These points must be addressed. For beginners or some people who don't have this knowledge, they must consult a third party who has this knowledge to ensure they have done it correctly to avoid lengthy troubleshooting or any other issues.

I'd rate the solution eight out of ten.

Optimizes cloud environments with seamless migration of a complete data center
Pros and Cons
  • "The most valuable features of this solution are scalability, performance, and reliability. It scales well inside of a large data center."

    What is our primary use case?

    Our primary use case of Cisco HyperFlex HX is for data centers. It performs well. The solution helps us simplify operations through minimal maintenance and ease of patching. 

    We did the upgrade as part of the lifecycle when the previous equipment became end-of-life. It was time for the investment. At the same time, we were building out new data centers. 

    How has it helped my organization?

    This product has improved the way our organization functions by allowing our data centers to perform optimally. It allows us to access our private data centers more seamlessly. This solution is flexible for various projects like cloud migration.

    We use Cisco HyperFlex HX to share on the external cloud the ability to access earth science, geophysical data, and core applications.

    What is most valuable?

    The most valuable features of this solution are scalability, performance, and reliability. It scales well inside of a large data center.

    Cisco HyperFlex HX allows us to connect and scale a lot of different technologies. They're very reliable. It very rarely breaks or has a maintenance issue. 

    Cisco HyperFlex HX is easy to patch and very cost-effective.

    What do I think about the stability of the solution?

    Cisco HyperFlex HX is very stable and reliable.

    What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

    Cisco HyperFlex HX is very scalable for a large data center solution.

    How are customer service and technical support?

    Technical support is excellent when it's needed through Cisco. It's usually fast, responsive, and done right the first time. 

    On occasions, we've had emergency patching requirements. We worked with Cisco to update those environments fairly quickly.

    How was the initial setup?

    The initial setup of Cisco HyperFlex HX is straightforward. It is easy to install with plug and play connectivity. It was standard with no complexity at all.

    HyperFlex lowered our deployment times approximately 20%.

    What about the implementation team?

    For the deployment, we used Cisco Professional Services.

    What was our ROI?

    We've seen our unit cost of providing services to data centers go down.

    What other advice do I have?

    On a scale from 1 to 10, I would rate this product a 10 for the reliability, ease of configuration, and customer support. 

    Everyone should understand connectivity in private and public clouds. We require seamless connectivity throughout and especially with some of the security technologies.

    Cisco HyperFlex HX is the best on the market. Everyone should consider it.

    Great reliability, good quality, and fast technical support
    Pros and Cons
    • "The solution scales extremely well."
    • "The initial setup can be complex."

    What is most valuable?

    The hyperconverged infrastructure is one of the most valuable aspects of the solution. Within the additional platform and then having the HyperFlex, the new solution of Cisco, it's actually quite advanced already. They are fast with the idea of not using storage and using HCI or hyperconverged infrastructure. Technically, I've been checking everybody's products and they are all very similar. The advantage of Cisco is it can install different platforms of virtualization software. It can install Hyper-V or it can also install VMware, for example - things we are using already and then it can work the IOPS that we provide. That's another thing.

    The stability has been great. It's a quality product.

    The solution scales extremely well. 

    Technical support is fast.

    What needs improvement?

    They need to provide lower prices. It is pricey in comparison with other vendors - including Nutanix, or VxRail of EMC. They are quite expensive due to the fabric interconnect, the FI, that they have. The other vendors don't have those fabric interconnects while Cisco requires the fabric interconnect. 

    The initial setup can be complex. 

    We'd like to see a backup solution included in the product in the future. 

    For how long have I used the solution?

    I've been using the solution for two years already.

    What do I think about the stability of the solution?

    I have a really high opinion of Cisco since I've been selling Cisco for quite some time and I have deployed it a lot. So far, the stability and the quality are really, really good. I have no issues with the stability and quality of Cisco. 

    What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

    It's actually one of the HCIs that I consider to have a greater potential for expansion. The scalability of Cisco is better than the others.

    How are customer service and support?

    Technical support is great They are very fast and responsive. 

    How was the initial setup?

    In comparison with other solutions, it's quite complex to set up due to the fabric interconnects with it. That said, I'm used to it. However, if you're going to compare it with other setups, and other vendors don't have those things. I understand that Cisco's servers need those for server profiles, and the others don't have those advantages. Still, if we do a direct comparison with other vendors, that would be the disadvantage as it's an additional cost in comparison with the pure network that you would connect with the hyperconverged infrastructure such as Nutanix, PowerFlex, VxRail, or SimpliVity of HP. That's the disadvantage of Cisco.

    Only one person is required to handle any maintenance responsibilities.

    What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

    The solution is quite expensive when compared to other options, although their technology is better. 

    You do need to pay a yearly licensing fee. How much depends upon how many are using it. I'm not sure how much in dollars, however, in pesos, it's around, if I'm 3 million to 5 million. Everything is included under on licensing fee. there are no extra costs. 

    What other advice do I have?

    We use a variety of different versions of the solution. It depends. 

    I'd advise new users to study the product. It needs, really, a knowledge of the product. I really highly recommend Cisco due to its stability and scalability, and also the performance of the equipment. It's got great quality. 

    I'd rate the solution nine out of ten.

    A single-vendor solution for our branch office servers, but the deployment could be made easier
    Pros and Cons
    • "The most valuable feature is that it is something small that can be more easily deployed than a full data center set of servers."
    • "The deployment could be made a little bit easier, as we still seem to struggle with it a little bit for a day or so to get it running."

    What is our primary use case?

    This solution is used for branch office servers.

    How has it helped my organization?

    Instead of having to go to multiple vendors to deploy a solution, it's just one place where we have everything that we need to set up and go.

    What is most valuable?

    The most valuable feature is that it is something small that can be more easily deployed than a full data center set of servers.

    What needs improvement?

    Having this solution even easier to manage would be nice.

    The deployment could be made a little bit easier, as we still seem to struggle with it a little bit for a day or so to get it running. I would like to have less clicking to deploy it, where it is ready to go out of the box with a default build. That would make things a little faster.

    For how long have I used the solution?

    Eighteen months.

    What do I think about the stability of the solution?

    This solution was not stable when we originally implemented it. However, over the last eighteen months or so, the updates have made it stable and actually usable for us.

    What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

    It definitely looks like it keeps scaling. We're not doing huge deployments of it, but it looks like it's easy to keep adding on to what we have.

    How are customer service and technical support?

    Technical support for this solution is very good.

    How was the initial setup?

    The initial setup was complex, but it was done more than eighteen months ago in the old form of things. It was a little harder than it is now.

    What about the implementation team?

    We handle the implementation and deployment in-house.

    What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

    We currently have a perpetual license, which is kind of unlimited, so we don't have the normal licensing cost, yet.

    Which other solutions did I evaluate?

    We purchased both this solution and one from Nutanix to compare them.

    What other advice do I have?

    This solution allows us to get up and running a lot faster than before. Instead of it being multiple days of cabling, multiple solutions, and getting the servers online, it now generally takes one full day to get it up and ready to go.

    I would rate this solution a seven out of ten.

    Very easy, convenient, and the performance is exceptional for virtual storage
    Pros and Cons
    • "On the VDI side, because the storage is local to the HyperFlex, it was very easy and convenient. The performance is exceptional."
    • "Maybe a better version is required to gather all of the information to allow HyperFlex to bring everything online more rapidly."

    What is our primary use case?

    We use Cisco HyperFlex for two reasons:

    1. At one data center, it's used as our primary virtualization and storage platform. 
    2. At our other data center, it's used for VDI.

    How has it helped my organization?

    Cisco HyperFlex HX-Series has improved our organization. 

    On the VDI side, because the storage is local to the HyperFlex, it was very easy and convenient. The performance is exceptional.

    What is most valuable?

    The most valuable feature of this solution is that it's self-contained. At the data center, everything is in the virtualized section. It was easier to put that in there than build it, i.e. buy a stand, buy the computers, and get it all integrated with networking. 

    With hyper-scale, we're able to go in very quickly and be able to get it up online.

    What needs improvement?

    Maybe a better version is required to gather all of the information to allow HyperFlex to bring everything online more rapidly.

    The initial implementation workflow could be improved. There's a lot of information you need to gather. At the time we deployed it, approximately a year and a half ago, that there was a lot of information that we needed to gather. It wasn't explicitly called out to in the workflow as you were going through the screens. 

    We had to know what we were doing. We read a lot of documentation to get all of that information.

    What do I think about the stability of the solution?

    Stability is great. I found that with Cisco hardware in general, i.e. anything on the UCS or HyperFlex side.

    What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

    The scalability is very good. Thus far, I haven't had to scale it out. In talking with my engineer, I'm very comfortable that when the time comes, we will be able to.

    How are customer service and technical support?

    The technical support has been exceptional. We had some minor issues implementing it the first time. They were able to come in and help us out. We were up and running very quickly.

    How was the initial setup?

    With any new technology, you hope that it is straightforward, but you expect some complexity. That is also true for HyperFlex when it was first implemented. 

    We were in between revisions and had some minor challenges. We overcame them very quickly.

    When we were deploying it, it was between two revisions. It was between HyperFlex 2.5 and 3.0. There were some steps in the 3.0 version that weren't spelled out. 

    The engineers came in and helped us with that and we were able to overcome those challenges.

    What about the implementation team?

    We did not use a vendor team. We took some courses through Cisco. We had our engineers come out and assist us.

    What was our ROI?

    We haven't seen a specific ROI. We've seen some across the board in separate environments for the data center and the VDI environment. 

    We haven't seen a return on the investment but the performance is something that we are very happy with overall.

    What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

    It's roughly $30,000 per HyperFkex license, so that would be about $60,000 a year.

    Which other solutions did I evaluate?

    We looked at a couple of different types of solutions. Nutanix was the leading competitor with HyperFlex. We went with Cisco because of their years of experience with HyperFlex and the support we had previously.

    What other advice do I have?

    It was very straightforward using the technology platform. We were comfortable with it. In the VDI environment, we're a Cisco shop and HyperFlex did fit the need well.

    On a scale of one to ten, I would rate this product with an eight. Like any new product, it's constantly evolving. The evolution of the HyperFlex solution is a challenge.

    I would recommend looking at the options when you go to implement it. Cisco's HyperFlex has a lot of different flavors. Make sure you pick the flavor for your specific implementation. 

    VDI has a different set of requirements than a standard hypervisor environment. Know what your end state is going to be, then pick the equipment behind the scenes that fit your needs.

    The ability to configure BIOS remotely is game-changing and unique to Cisco
    Pros and Cons
    • "The UCS, which is by far the best management tool there is on the market, regardless of vendor. It's the only tool I see that gives you the opportunity to size and scale all the assets and capacity you have in your data center, from a unified view."
    • "Cisco provides the ability to configure BIOS, something that no one else can do, on a remote basis. That's really helpful sometimes. The bus-snooping alteration tool for BIOS is fantastic. That's one of the game-changing features that Cisco alone has at this point."

      What is our primary use case?

      Our use case was to set up a new VDI farm.

      How has it helped my organization?

      If you set up a cluster and then you decide a bit later on to split that resource into several smaller clusters, that's where UCS comes in and eases that operation better than anyone else that I've worked with. It provides better capacity utilization and a faster time to delivery. The cluster-splitting took about two hours while before, it took about four days. That's a considerable time savings in down-scaling and cluster spitting.

      What is most valuable?

      There are two most valuable features in HyperFlex:

      • The UCS, which is by far the best management tool there is on the market, regardless of vendor. It's the only tool I see that gives you the opportunity to size and scale all the assets and capacity you have in your data center, from a unified view.
      • That Cisco provides the ability to configure BIOS, something that no one else can do, on a remote basis. That's really helpful sometimes. The bus-snooping alteration tool for BIOS is fantastic. That's one of the game-changing features that Cisco alone has at this point.

      In addition, the density, how much performance you can pack into the form factor, that is most impressive for me.

      Finally, there's no high learning curve. It's very easy. Sure, you should have some experience, of course. But it's not that hard to get familiar with the user interface and how to manage and operate it.

      For how long have I used the solution?

      Less than one year.

      What do I think about the stability of the solution?

      It's extremely stable.

      What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

      The scalability is fantastic; I'm close to saying matchless. I've forgotten how many physical nodes were involved, but it was a substantial installation. Really large. It had the capacity to host 16,000 concurrent users. That's pretty sizable.

      How are customer service and technical support?

      I haven't experienced Cisco tech support in person, since it all went smoothly. We didn't have any problems.

      Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

      They were using Dell EMC VxRail. They didn't switch, really. Cisco's presence just started to increase.

      How was the initial setup?

      I found the setup to be relatively straightforward, but I have some 20 years in the business, so that could be a factor.

      The deployment took two days. The company is a VMware house, so all things come to VMware. So maybe that eased things too. But you have to have Cisco-Certified engineers mounting the stuff.

      The implementation of HyperFlex required six people, including the server manager, me, and two guys from Tech Mahindra taking care of the VMware parts. And there were two Cisco-Certified engineers from a big partner in this region, named Atea.

      They missed some tables in the delivery and that took us an extra day. But I don't think that's mandatory procedure. Overall, the implementation went very smoothly.

      For maintenance it takes four people on a day-to-day basis with specified, divided roles. including some taking care of the VMware parts while I take care of the VDI-specific features. I would consider it a high-maintenance solution. It's not that it takes full-time support, not from that perspective, but you have to be pretty well skilled in software, setting up profiles, etc. That's not Cisco-specific.

      What about the implementation team?

      I have had a really good and long experience with Atea as a partner. 

      This was my first acquaintance, in person, with Tech Mahindra and that was pretty interesting. You have to be somewhat aware of the caste system. It eases your dialogue.

      What was our ROI?

      ROI can be found in down-scaling time, which includes cluster-splitting, and the overall management, with the ease of UCS, compared to any other tool in that space.

      It's hard to say there's a financial value since they're quite expensive. It's also a matter of OpEx and CapEx. Perhaps you pay up a little bit more, but to OpEx and CapEx will be lowered since the solution lasts forever and is easier to manage.

      What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

      They are not the cheapest on the market. But there's an old saying I like to quote: "If you know that you are getting what you pay for, it's fine if it's expensive."

      Which other solutions did I evaluate?

      We compared two quotes. The other quote was from another big OEM, which is very closely tied to VMware. I was assigned to do that comparison since I have somewhat of a reputation as being good in sizing up the component base. I soon found out that the Cisco solution provided much higher density for the form factor than the other. Also, the server manager got a good feeling about the UCS by itself and the density. They were really good staff to work with and they have a high presence in the region. And they're really great in costumer care.

      I know Cisco is working pretty hard to become a top player in the AI space. But I don't think Cisco has many competitors. There is Dell EMC and maybe Supermicro, which is always first on the market with all things new. Cisco is definitely one of the top three vendors.

      Amulet Hotkey has some really nice products out there too. It's truly expensive if you want to go full frontal with everything that they offer. On the other hand, you can get there with almost the same, extremely high security level with Cisco products too.

      What other advice do I have?

      Look at the manageability. Do a serious comparison of management tools. That's strong advice because it can be really expensive too if you have to implement a third-party management tool.

      In terms of extent of use, Cisco systems make up about 30 percent of the overall system, but it was definitely the plan to increase Cisco systems within the data center, meaning HyperFlex, because of the form factor and the density of it.

      Thanks for taking the time interviewing me. An minor addition is that it's about configuring Bus Snooping in BIOS what makes Cisco stand out, from my experinence. One can configure BIOS remotely on other vendors systems and with other tools to. Sorry for not being clear on that in the interview.
