The documentation set for this product strives to use bias-free language. For the purposes of this documentation set, bias-free is defined as language that does not imply discrimination based on age, disability, gender, racial identity, ethnic identity, sexual orientation, socioeconomic status, and intersectionality. Exceptions may be present in the documentation due to language that is hardcoded in the user interfaces of the product software, language used based on RFP documentation, or language that is used by a referenced third-party product.

Powerful platform for SAP HANA
The Cisco® C880 M5 Server provides a powerful foundation for the memory-intensive SAP HANA solutions. With eight Intel® Xeon® 8180M or 8176 processors in its CPU, the C880 M5 is configured and deployed for SAP HANA workloads, including analytic SAP Business Warehouse, and transactional workloads, such as SAP ERP, CRM, and S4/HANA. This no-compromise server is a balance of performance, expansion capabilities, and flexibility to scale in a 5-Rack-Unit (5RU) form-factor.
Features and capabilities
Ready for SAP HANA workloads
The Cisco C880 M5 hardware comes fully configured. Choose from 3, 6, or 12 terabytes (TB) of memory, depending on the projected in-memory database size requirements.
Scale up or scale out architecture
The server can be deployed as part of a scale-up architecture, where SAP HANA database tables are deployed as a single-server appliance, or as part of an SAP HANA cluster. The server can be configured with 3 TB or 6 TB of memory for Business Warehouse implementation. The versatile server can also be configured with 3 TB, 6 TB, 9 TB, or 12 TB for scale-up transactional workloads, or for the scale-out S/4 workload. The specifications are shown in Table 1.
SAP HANA Certified or TDI: A flexible server deployment
This certified SAP HANA solution reduces risk and accelerates installation and deployment. The 40 x 1.8 TB hard disk drive storage provides the performance required for HANA appliance implementations. SAP HANA Tailored Datacenter Integration (TDI) installations are also fully supported by replacing the attached storage with enterprise data center storage that meets the SAP HANA TDI requirements. Save on costs by leveraging your existing storage investments.
Cisco UCS Director support
Cisco UCS® Director facilitates infrastructure deployment and real-time monitoring and management, including system inventory and operational health status, monitoring, and troubleshooting SAP HANA-specific workflows.
Cisco solutions support for SAP HANA
The C880 M5 is backed by Cisco SMARTnet™ services and SAP HANA solution support. Installation, business continuity, and lifecycle management services are also available from Cisco Advanced Services teams.
