“Cisco should have made this version 2.0”

As you may have already noticed, we released UCS Manager v1.4 in late December. While I was busy cooking and eating my way through the holidays, others were less fatteningly and more productively engaged with checking it out. Here’s what they had to say:

First, our own Sean McGee provided an excellent overview of the new features on his personal blog.

Cisco partner Dave Alexander talked about the implications of direct-attach storage capabilities

Customer Michael Heil was upgrading to 1.3 in mid-December, and then promptly did another upgrade to 1.4 a couple of weeks later.  His in-the-moment reaction is here.

Cisco partner Jeremy Waldrop posted about his favorite features, too–different things than Mike.

And thanks to v1.4, we already have a customer signing on to UCS for a blade/rackmount combo architecture.

  1. Agreed, this was such a major release of highly-awaited features, it would have made a great "2.0". I've already started referring to UCS epochs as "Before 1.4" and "After 1.4". :)
