Quotes From Members
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"Cisco Intersight has valuable features for workflow automation and inventory administration.""Scalable portfolio of services for remote device management, with good cloud integration. It's also easy to set up.""The tool helps to manage Cisco servers.""Our organization uses Cisco Intersight since it helps manage our physical infrastructure.""I like Intersight because of the integration with HashiCorp, Kubernetes, and each cloud because Intersight is the IO module.""The product has good integration.""What I like most about Cisco Intersight is its manageability.""We enjoy having an inside view of all the data centers and all the EdgeX nodes within a single portal rather than going into the EdgeX connections one by one."

More Cisco Intersight Pros →

"The initial setup is easy.""We get templates, so it's speed to delivery for us. It's a big difference with the template features.""It gives us a view of all our servers, which we did not have before in real-time.""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.""Easy to see if all my servers are on correct firmware levels, with SPP packaging.""Deploys faster new virtual services.""Provides the strongest support for automation.""The most valuable features are the composable structure, infrastructure, and automation."

More HPE OneView Pros →

"In the future, the solution needs to plan on an extension to cover a broader range of objects since, at present, there are some Cisco devices within the range of Intersight UCS that it can't manage.""It's a very complex solution.""The product's setup should be easier.""Cisco Intersight needs some improvement in terms of stability. Hybrid cloud management and proper hyperscaler tie-up are other areas for improvement.""The usability must be better.""An area for improvement in Cisco Intersight is automation. It needs more automation capabilities. Apart from enhanced automation, I want Cisco Intersight to integrate with third-party monitoring tools in its next release.""When new features are added, the service becomes full of bugs.""The product could be easy to use."

More Cisco Intersight Cons →

"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.""The interface is a bit bland. It does its job, but it could have a better interface.""​Technical support is not very good. The engineers do not know a lot about the product​, even when asked simplistic questions.""Integration could be improved. Sometimes OneView doesn't identify physical hardware.""Use it, but do not think it is going into the clouds, because it is not. There is room for improvement.​""HPE OneView should be able to cover more device models apart from ProLiant and Synergy.""One thing which is missing is that you can't actually log a support call yourself.""We've had issues, for example, with RAM."
