Simplicity, Efficiency, Performance, and Density
The Cisco UCS B200 M1 Blade Server balances simplicity, performance, and density for production-level virtualization and other mainstream data-center workloads. The server is a half-width, two-socket blade server with substantial throughput and scalability.
A Cisco UCS 5108 Blade Server Chassis can house up to eight UCS B200 M1 Blade Servers, with a maximum of 320 per Unified Computing System.
Features of the Cisco UCS B200 M1 include:
- Up to two Intel® Xeon® 5500 Series processors, which automatically and intelligently adjust server performance according to application needs, increasing performance when needed and achieving substantial energy savings when not.
- Up to 96 GB of DDR3 memory in a half-width form factor for mainstream workloads, which serves to balance memory capacity and overall density.
- Two optional Small Form Factor (SFF) Serial Attached SCSI (SAS) hard drives available in 73GB 15K RPM and 146GB 10K RPM versions with an LSI Logic 1064e controller and integrated RAID.
- One dual-port mezzanine card for up to 20 Gbps of I/O per blade. Mezzanine card options include either a Cisco UCS VIC M81KR Virtual Interface Card, a converged network adapter (Emulex or QLogic compatible), or a single 10GB Ethernet Adapter.
