Feature Benefit
10-Gbps unified network fabric
  • Low-latency, lossless, 10-Gbps Ethernet and industry-standard FCoE and native Fibre Channel fabric
  • Wire-once deployment model in which changing I/O configurations no longer means installing adapters and recabling racks and switches
  • Fewer interface cards, cables, and upstream network ports to purchase, power, configure, and maintain
Virtualization optimization
  • Cisco Data Center VM-FEX and Adapter-FEX technologies, I/O virtualization, and Intel Xeon processor E5-2600 and E5‑2600 v2 product family features, extending the network directly to virtual machines
  • Consistent and scalable operational model
  • Increased security and efficiency with reduced complexity
Unified management (when integrated into Cisco Unified Computing System)
  • Entire solution managed as a single entity with Cisco UCS Manager, improving operation efficiency and flexibility
  • Service profiles and templates that implement role- and policy-based management, enabling more effective use of skilled server, network, and storage administrators
  • Automated provisioning and increased business agility, allowing data center managers to provision applications in minutes rather than days
  • Capability to move virtual machines and their security features and policies from rack to rack or rack to blade or blade to blade
Intel Xeon processor E5-2600 and E5‑2600 v2 product families
  • Automated energy efficiency reduces energy costs by automatically putting the processor and memory in the lowest available power state while still delivering the performance required and flexible virtualization technology that optimizes performance for virtualized environments, including processor support for migration and direct I/O
  • Up to twice the performance for floating-point operations. Intel Advanced Vector Extensions (AVX) provides new instructions that can significantly improve performance for applications that rely on floating-point or vector computations
  • Cisco C-Series servers keep pace with Intel Xeon processor innovation by offering the latest processors with an increase in processor frequency and improved security and availability features. With the increased performance provided by the Intel Xeon processor E5-2600 and E5-2600 v2 product families, Cisco UCS C-Series servers offer an improved price-to-performance ratio, making Cisco UCS servers among the best values in the industry
  • Advanced reliability features, including Machine Check Architecture Recovery, automatically monitor, report, and recover from hardware errors to maintain data integrity and keep mission-critical services online
  • Hardened protection for virtual and cloud Environments: Establish trusted pools of virtual resources with Intel ® Trusted Execution Technology (Intel ® TXT). Intel TXT ensures that physical servers and hypervisors boot only into cryptographically verified “known good states.” It safeguards your business more effectively by protecting your platform from the insertion of malware during or prior to launch
High-capacity, flexible internal storage
  • Up to 12 LFF or 16/24 SFF front-accessible, hot-swappable, SAS, SATA, or SSD drives for local storage, providing redundancy options and ease of serviceability
  • Balanced performance and capacity to meet application needs: ◦ SATA SSDs ◦ 15,000 RPM SAS drives for highest performance ◦ 10,000 RPM SAS drives for high performance and value ◦ 7200-RPM SATA drives for high capacity and value
RAID 0, 1, 5, 6, 10, 50, and 60 support A choice of RAID controllers to provide data protection for up to 12 or 24 SAS, SATA, or SSD drives in PCIe and mezzanine card form factors
Cisco UCS C-Series Integrated Management Controller (CIMC)
  • Web user interface for server management; remote keyboard, video, and mouse (KVM); virtual media; and administration
  • Virtual media support for remote CD and DVD drives as if local
  • Intelligent Platform Management Interface (IPMI) 2.0 support for out-of-band management through third‑party enterprise management systems
  • Command-line interface (CLI) for server management
Fast-memory support 24 DIMM slots supporting up to 1866 MHz of memory for optimal performance
Redundant fans and power supplies
  • Dual-redundant fans and power supplies for enterprise-class reliability and uptime
  • Power efficiency through Cisco Common Form-Factor Platinum Power Supplies (650W or 1200W or 930W DC)
5 PCIe 3.0 slots
  • Flexibility, increased performance, and compatibility with industry standards
  • PCIe 3.0 slots, which are estimated to substantially increase the bandwidth over the previous generation and offer more flexibility while maintaining compatibility with PCIe 2.0
  • 2 PCIe generation 3 x16 slots: both full height, and three-quarters length (10.5-in)
  • 3 PCIe generation 3 x8 slots: 1 full height and three-quarters length, 1 full height and half length, and 1 half height and half length
Integrated quad-port Gigabit Ethernet
  • Outstanding network I/O performance and increased network efficiency and flexibility
  • Increased network availability when configured in failover configurations
  • Trusted Platform Module (TPM)
    • TPM is a chip (microcontroller) that can securely store artifacts used to authenticate the platform (server). Theseartifacts can include passwords, certificates, or encryption keys
    • TPM can also be used to store platform measurements that help ensure that the platform remains trustworthy, helping ensure authentication and authorization
    Tool-free access Enhanced serviceability through tool-free access to all serviceable items and color coded indicators to guide users to hot-pluggable and serviceable items
    Cisco Flexible Flash (FlexFlash)
    • The server supports up to two internal Cisco FlexFlash drives (secure digital [SD] cards)
    • The first SD card is preloaded with 4 virtual drives, which contain the Cisco Server Configuration Utility, the Cisco Host Upgrade Utility, the Cisco C-Series server drivers set, and a blank virtual drive on which you can install an OS or a hypervisor. The second SD card is blank and can be used to mirror the first SD card
    GPU Virtualization Support Offload graphics and compute processing from the C240 M3 server CPU to the NVIDIA Kepler™ enabled GPU and accelerate applications in physical and virtualized environments.
