"In most cases, computes compute, and there isn't much differentiation, but one point of differentiation is Intersight cloud management."
"In terms of the features that I have found most valuable, that is basically the hardware, which is more dynamic."
"The solution is easily scalable."
"The product doesn't take up too much space on the rack and I like that."
"What I really like about the Cisco USC Server is its service profile."
"The initial setup is straightforward and easy to do."
"Its hardware is really reliable. We also like Cisco for its support."
"The hardware customization capabilities are great."
"The setup was easy and not complicated."
"This is all I've ever used. These servers are strong, and they have very few failures on them. They are also easy to manage and monitor."
"It's easy to upgrade, and it is very easy to take care of the firmware upgrades."
"Very practical and easy to maintain."
"One of the most valuable features is iLO, which is very good. Another thing is the HPE support is very good."

"The most valuable feature is stability."
"Its reliability and after-sales support are very good."
"I would like to see a little more integration with VMware."
"On the contact center and video conferencing, I would definitely like to see more AI features. The AI features are key for us. You will find a lot of them in the cloud-based solution, but in the on-premises solution, they're hardly there. I would like to see the same AI features that are there in the cloud-based Cisco UC."
"The only thing I would change is to provide more proactive support."
"I think the pricing is high. Cisco has to look for bundling this solutions with other applications."
"The price of the solution is problematic, not the solution itself. It could be less expensive."
"Its accessibility and manageability can be improved. Currently, we have to visit the office to manage it. It should be manageable outside our network. I would like it to be on the cloud."
"The warranty and support periods should be extended."
"Technical support could be more responsive."
"The solution should work to be more scalable."
"They can increase the controller cache. Currently, it has a controller cache of up to 4 GB. The RAID controller card comes with a maximum of 4 GB cache in HPE servers, whereas it comes with a maximum of 8 GB cache in Dell servers. They can also improve the port size. HP provides a 25 GB port on the server, whereas both Dell and Cisco provide a 100 GB port."
"The implementation should be simplified, it is not straightforward."
"HPE ProLiant DL Servers are not scalable."
"The price of this solution should be lowered to make it more competitive."
"The technical support could be a little faster."
"They should continue to maintain the stability that is there."
"Configurations could be simplified."
