This chapter provides an overview of the Cisco UCS C460 server features.
The Cisco UCS C460 server is a part of the Cisco UCS C-Series rack-mount server family. It is a high-performance, high-memory-capacity server designed with the performance and reliability to power compute-intensive, enterprise-critical standalone applications and virtualized workloads.It operates in a wide range of data center environments. These environments include the Cisco Unified Computing System, the Cisco Nexus switches, and discrete Ethernet and Fibre Channel switches from Cisco and third parties.

Either 2 or 4 power supplies, 850W each. Hot-swappable, rear-accessible, and redundant as 2+2 or 3+1.
Note You can use 2 power supplies with a 2-CPU configuration. In this case, 1+1 redundancy is supported only if your server's overall power consumption can be supported by a single 850W power supply during the failure and hot-swap. For more information about your server's power consumption, consult with your Cisco sales representative or use the power calculator accessible at the Unified Computing System Partner Resource Center:
This server supports the advanced configuration and power interface (ACPI) 4.0 standard.
