Cloud Transformation is Reality

New Generation CISCO UCS M3 Servers Announced today, March 08, 2012.

 

Cisco UCS C240 M3 Server

The Cisco UCS C240 M3 Rack Server is designed for both performance and expandability over a wide range of storage-intensive infrastructure workloads, from big data to collaboration.

The latest expansion of the Cisco UCS portfolio includes the new Cisco UCS C240 M3 Rack Server (two rack units [2RU]) and Cisco UCS C220 M3 Rack Server (1RU) and the Cisco UCS B200 M3 Blade Server. These three new servers increase compute density through more cores and cache balanced with more memory capacity and disk drives and faster I/O.

The Cisco UCS C240 M3 interfaces with Cisco UCS using another Cisco innovation, the Cisco UCS P81E Virtual Interface Card (VIC). The Cisco UCS P81E VIC is a virtualization-optimized Fibre Channel over Ethernet (FCoE) PCI Express (PCIe) 2.0 x8 10-Gbps adapter designed for use with Cisco UCS C-Series Rack Servers. The VIC is a dual-port 10 Gigabit Ethernet PCIe adapter that can support up to 18 PCIe standards-compliant virtual interfaces, which can be dynamically configured so that both their interface type (network interface card [NIC] or host bus adapter [HBA]) and identity (MAC address and worldwide name [WWN]) are established using just-in-time provisioning. In addition, the Cisco UCS P81E can support network interface virtualization and Cisco® Data Center Virtual Machine Fabric Extender (VM-FEX) technology.

  • Cisco UCS B200 M3 Blade Server: The enterprise-class Cisco UCS B200 M3 server provides performance, versatility, and density in a half-blade form factor, delivering balanced, industry-leading density through its 24 DIMM slots and up to 80 gigabits of I/O bandwidth. Greater density, performance and bandwidth mean business applications can run faster, more cost-effectively, and more efficiently.
  • UCS C220 M3 Rack Server: The Cisco UCS C220 M3 Rack Server is a one-rack-unit (1RU) server designed for performance and density for a wide range of business workloads, from Web services to distributed databases.
  • UCS C240 M3 Rack Server: The Cisco UCS C240 M3 Rack Server is a two-rack-unit (2RU) server designed for both performance and expandability over a wide range of storage-intensive infrastructure workloads, from big data to collaboration.
