"I can quickly manage the provisioned servers."

More Cisco UCS Manager Pros →

"Provides the strongest support for automation.""The best part is that you can integrate a two-way network. Earlier we could not manage the storage and ToR switch. Now we can create a LAN with our storage without any interface. In terms of switch management, it is now easy to understand the current configuration. It provides centralized management. It provides a single pane, and you can easily do all updates in one shot. It is a great product.""The OneView Global Dashboard is very user-friendly and it can be used for monitoring the power consumption and temperature of the data center and racks."

More HPE OneView Pros →

"Its user interface can be improved. It can be more user-friendly."

More Cisco UCS Manager Cons →

"They can improve reporting and provide more customized reports. Currently, reporting is a bit limited. It can be complex to learn and manage for beginners. Because of my experience, I find it comfortable to manage, which might not be the case with beginners. It would be good if they can make it a little bit easier to understand. They can provide a more graphical view of connectivity and other things. Their technical support can also be improved.""Does not allow for switch configuration other than through OneView.""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."
