PRODUCT OVERVIEW

The Cisco ® MCS 7835-H1 Media Convergence Server is a high-availability server platform for Cisco Unified Communications solutions. An integral part of a complete, scalable architecture for a new generation of high-quality IP voice solutions that run on enterprise data networks, the Cisco MCS 7835-H1 delivers the high performance and availability demanded by today's enterprise networks-and it is easy to deploy and highly cost-effective. At only 2 rack units (2RU) high, the Cisco MCS 7835-H1 offers tremendous power in a low-profile chassis that minimizes rack space. It runs a variety of Cisco IP Communications applications, such as Cisco CallManager; its features include:

• Intel Xeon 3.4-GHz (or higher) processors, an 800-MHz front side bus (FSB), and 2 MB of Layer 2 cache

• 2-GB PC2-3200R 400-MHz Double Data Rate 2 (DDR2) memory with online spare capabilities

• Integrated Ultra320 Smart Array 6i Redundant Array of Independent Disks (RAID) Controller with 64-MB read cache plus 128-MB battery-backed write cache

• Dual-port Gigabit Ethernet controller (embedded)

• Quick-deployment third-party rail kit

• Support for Integrated Lights Out (iLO) server management

• Support for up to six 1-inch Ultra320 Small Computer System Interface (SCSI) hot-plug hard drives

KEY FEATURES AND BENEFITS

Performance

The Cisco MCS 7835-H1is a robust, highly available server platform designed to support today's unified communications applications. It uses an Integrated Smart Array 6i Controller with a 64-MB cache to provide onboard RAID support without using one of the peripheral component-interface (PCI)-X slots on the server. The Cisco MCS 7835-H1 occupies only 2RU of space while providing the features most requested in a high-availability server platform. At product introduction the Cisco MCS 7835-H1 will ship with an Intel Xeon 3.4-GHz processor and over time the processor speed will be increased as Intel retires the 3.4-GHz processor and introduces new processors.

High Availability

• High availability on the Cisco MCS 7835-H1 is achieved through the following mechanisms:

• Redundant hot-swap 575W power supplies

• Hot-swap SCSI hard drives configured using RAID 1

Serviceability

System Health LEDs

The Cisco MCS 7835-H1 provides system health LEDs and unit identification lights on the front and back of the server to make pinpointing system problems easier than ever. When an internal component fails, this indication is made on an internal component LED (amber) and on the front panel of the Cisco MCS 7835-H1. If the item is serviceable without removing the server hood, as in the case of a redundant power supply, the external health LED illuminates. If the item is serviceable by removing the hood, as in the case of a fan failure, the internal health LED illuminates. If no failures have occurred, the system health LEDs are green. If a failure has occurred but a redundant feature has enabled the system to continue running, the LED is amber. If the failure is critical and has caused the system to shut down, the LED is red.

Integrated Lights Out

The Integrated Lights Out (iLO) Standard is included on the motherboard. Combining essential management functions and diagnostics with basic lights-out functions as standard components of the server, iLO is available at no charge. iLO Standard offers maximum security, availability, and control over business-critical servers without the need to visit the systems physically.

• iLO Standard provides fundamental server control and monitoring by integrating essential lights-out technology directly into the Cisco MCS 7835-H1 server architecture.

• Essential lights-out features include remote power control, text-based console, logs, status, and alert forwarding.

• The easy-to-use, dedicated lights-out LAN port is accessible through a browser interface.

• iLO Standard saves a valuable PCI slot for additional functions and reduces installation and setup time.

• iLO Standard eliminates the need for an external power adapter or any other internal or external cables.

• iLO Standard provides a rich suite of security features, including Secure Sockets Layer (SSL).

• iLO Standard provides a scalable solution by allowing group administration of iLO processors.

Redundant ROM

In the Cisco MCS 7835-H1, the ROM is divided into two logical sections. When the system boots, the primary ROM section is executed and used in server operation. During a ROM flash, the backup section is flashed. When the flash is fully completed, the backup section becomes the primary. If under rare conditions the flash does not complete safely, potentially because of power interruption, the backup is available to boot the system. In the situation where both ROM images are valid, the user can select which image to use at boot time.

DAT Tape Support

The Cisco MCS 7835-H1 can support an optional 36-/72-GB universal-serial-bus (USB) external Digital Audio Tape (DAT) drive (part number DAT-USB-EXT-72=) or an optional USB rack-mount DAT drive (part number DAT-USB-RM-72=). This tape drive connects through one of the 4 USB 2.0 ports provided by the Cisco MCS 7835-H1 server.
