Cisco UCS® X-Series Modular System

The Cisco UCS® X-Series Modular System begins with the Cisco UCS X9508 Chassis engineered to be adaptable and future ready. It is a standard, open system designed to deploy and automate faster in concert with your hybrid cloud environment.

With a midplane-free design, I/O connectivity for the X9508 chassis is accomplished with frontloading, vertically oriented compute and accelerator nodes intersecting with horizontally oriented I/O connectivity modules in the rear of the chassis. A unified Ethernet fabric is supplied with the Cisco UCS 9108 Intelligent Fabric Modules. UCS X9416 X-Fabric Module, part of the UCS X-Fabric Technology, supply PCIe Gen 4 industry-standard protocols for GPU accelerators. Interconnections can be easily updated with new modules supporting faster Ethernet, PCIe Gen 5, and CXL.

Eight flexible slots can house a combination of compute nodes and resources such as GPUs, FPGAs, and storage, to name a few. The first server node is the Cisco UCS X210c Compute Node. The first accelerator node is the Cisco UCS X440p PCI Node.

The Cisco UCS X-Series Modular System was designed to be managed with Cisco Intersight™. Intersight is a cloud-operations, software-as-a-service (SaaS) platform that uses analytics to deliver proactive monitoring, automation, and optimization of workloads across hybrid cloud environments. Cisco Intersight Managed Mode (IMM) delivers policy-based configurations and accelerates the deployment of both physical and virtual workloads.
