Features and Benefits

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

●  Capability to move virtual machine security features and policies from rack to rack or rack to blades

Unified management (when integrated into Cisco UCS) ●  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 by associating a service profile with a new, added or repurposed Cisco UCS C220 M3 server

●  Capability to move service profiles from rack server to another rack server, or blade to rack server, or rack to blade server in minutes instead of hours or days

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 (Intel AVX) provides new instructions that can significantly improve performance for applications that rely on floating-point or vector computations

●  Cisco UCS C-Series servers keep pace with Intel Xeon processor innovation by offering the latest processors with an increase in processor frequency and improved security features. With the increased performance provided by the Intel Xeon processor E5-2600 and E5-2600 v2 product families, Cisco UCS C‑Series rack 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, to 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

Hot-swappable SAS, SATA, or SSD drives ●  Up to 4 LFF or 8 SFF front-accessible, hot-swappable, internal SAS, SATA, or SSD drives, providing redundancy options and ease of serviceability

●  Balanced performance and capacity to best meet application needs:


◦   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 provides data protection for up to 8 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 16 DIMM slots supporting DDR3 1866-MHz memory for optimal performance
Redundant fans and power supplies ●  Dual-redundant fans and hot-swappable, redundant power supplies for enterprise-class reliability and uptime

●  Power efficiency through Cisco Common Form-Factor Platinum Power Supplies (450W and 650W)

Support for up to 2 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

●  I/O performance and flexibility with one x8, half-height and half-length slot and one x16, full-height and half‑length slot

Integrated dual-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). These artifacts 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 Tool-free access to all serviceable items, and color-coded indicators to guide users to hot-pluggable and serviceable items
Cisco Flexible Flash (FlexFlash) memory The server supports up to two internal Cisco FlexFlash drives (secure digital [SD] cards). The first SD card is preloaded with four virtual drives. The four virtual drives contain, respectively, 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.
