Cisco UCS C-Series Rack Servers

Compare Models

Cisco UCS C-Series Rack Servers extend Cisco's Unified Computing to an industry-standard form factor reducing total cost of ownership and increasing agility. A full range of rack servers address workload challenges with a balance of processing, memory, I/O, and internal storage resources. Cisco UCS rack servers can be managed independently or can be fully integrated with Cisco UCS Manager and Cisco UCS Central, supplying a totally integrated management process for both rack and blade servers inside a single tool. All Cisco UCS Server use leading Intel® Xeon® processors. Cisco UCS with UCS Manager and UCS Central provide:

  • Embedded integration of LAN, SAN, and management
  • Local, and optionally Global, server profiles / templates enabling policy driven server provisioning
  • Auto-discovery, with automatic recognition and configuration of blades

Description Outstanding economics, density-optimized for a range of workloads: SMB / departmental, entry-level virtualization, IT and web. Excellent entry point with expandability for storage-intensive workloads, from IT and web infrastructure to big data. Great performance and density over a range of business workloads from web serving to distributed database. Optimized for performance and expandability for storage-intensive workloads ranging from big data to collaboration. Superior for large databases and designed for compute, I/O, storage, and memory-intensive bare metal and virtualized applications. One of the highest-density two-socket servers with compact performance for business-critical applications. Exceptional processor, memory, and local storage capacity, with leading performance for mission-critical solutions. Superior performance and reliability to power the most compute- and memory-intensive, mission-critical enterprise applications, and virtualized workloads.
