Features Benefits
Cisco Extended Memory Technology
  • Up to 1 TB of main memory using 16-GB DIMMs or 256 GB of main memory with 4-GB DIMMs
  • Substantially increased memory footprint, increasing performance and capacity for memory-intensive applications and large-data-set workloads
  • Reduced number of servers and decreased licensing costs with higher virtual-to-physical consolidation ratios
  • 64 DIMM slots, offering a more cost-effective memory footprint because smaller-density DIMMs can be substituted for more expensive, higher-density DIMMs
  • Capability to scale to higher levels of memory and performance without increasing socket count using Cisco Extended Memory Technology
10-Gbps unified network fabric
  • Low-latency, lossless, 10-Gbps Ethernet and industry-standard Fibre Channel over Ethernet (FCoE) fabric
  • Wire-once deployment model in which changing I/O configurations no longer means installing adapters and recabling both racks and switches
  • Fewer interface cards, cables, and upstream network ports to purchase, power, configure, and maintain
Virtualization optimization
  • Cisco VN-Link technology, I/O virtualization, and Intel ® Xeon ® processor E7-2800 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 the Cisco Unified Computing System)
  • Entire solution managed as a single entity with Cisco UCS Manager, improving operational 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
  • Integration with third-party management tools
Redundant, hot-swappable power supplies Increased availability
Redundant, hot swappable power supplies increased availability and serviceability, leading to less down time
Support for up to 7 PCI Express (PCIe) 2.0 slots
  • Flexibility, increased performance, and compatibility with industry standards
  • I/O performance and flexibility with 2 full-height, half-length x16 slots; 4 low-profile, half-length x8 slots; and 1 low-profile, half-length x4 slot
  • Availability of 2 of the 6 slots to configure RAID support through optional LSI MegaRAID controller card
  • PCIe 2.0 slots, which double bandwidth over the previous generation and offer more flexibility while maintaining compatibility with PCIe 1.1
10-core Intel® Xeon® processor E7-2800 product family
  • New levels of processor scalability, memory, and I/O capacity to address IT’s greatest and most critical ERP, customer relationship management (CRM), database, analytics, and virtualization challenges with exceptional hardware and software support
  • Top-of-the-line processors, which deliver leading performance for mission- critical business solutions with outstanding economics that create new possibilities
  • Advanced reliability features and new security features, including Intel Machine Check Architecture Recovery to automatically manage hardware errors and protect against malicious software attacks, maintaining data integrity and increasing the availability of mission-critical services
  • Intelligent performance that automatically adjusts processor performance to meet application demands, increasing performance when needed and achieving substantial energy savings when not needed through Intel Intelligent Power Technology (IPT)
  • Enhanced virtualization technology that optimizes performance for virtualized environments, providing processor support for virtual machine migration and direct I/O
  • With more cores, threads, and cache and higher memory bandwidth in a similar power envelope, the Cisco Unified Computing System and Intel ® Xeon ® processor E7-2800 product family together offer further reductions in TCO, increased business agility, and another big leap forward in data center virtualization
Hot-swappable SAS, SATA and SSD drives
  • Up to 16 front-accessible, hot-swappable, small form-factor (SFF) SAS or SATA-II drives or SSDs
  • Hot pluggable and easy front accessibility
  • Support for 10,000-RPM drives that deliver both value and capacity
  • Support for 15,000-RPM drives for high performance
  • Capability to tailor storage characteristics to application requirements through the choice of high-capacity (600 GB) and economical SATA-II drives or high-performance, enterprise-class SAS drives (146, 300, and 600 GB)
RAID 0, 1, 5, 6, 10, 50, and 60 support Choice of up to two optional RAID controllers to provide data performance and protection for up to 16 SAS or SATA-II drivers of SSDs.
Cisco UCS Integrated Management Controller (IMC)
  • Web user interface for server management, administration, and virtual media
  • Virtual media support for remote keyboard, video, and mouse (KVM) and CD/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
Integrated dual Gigabit Ethernet and dual 10 -Gigabit Ethernet SFP+
  • Outstanding network I/O performance and increased network efficiency and flexibility
  • Increased network availability when configured in failover configurations
