Bias-Free Language

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.

Un/Box the future with Cisco UCS® X-Series Modular System and Intersight. Embrace an adaptable, future-ready, and cloud operated system to simplify IT and innovate at the speed of software.

Product overview

The Cisco UCS X-Series Modular System simplifies your data center, adapting to the unpredictable needs of modern applications while also providing for traditional scale-out and enterprise workloads. It reduces the number of server types to maintain, helping to improve operational efficiency and agility as it helps reduce complexity. Powered by the Cisco Intersight cloud operations platform, it shifts your thinking from administrative details to business outcomes—with hybrid cloud infrastructure that is assembled from the cloud, shaped to your workloads, and continuously optimized.

Features and benefits

Main features

      The Cisco UCS X210c M6 Compute Node is the first computing device to integrate into the Cisco UCS X-Series Modular System. Up to eight compute nodes can reside in the 7-Rack-Unit (7RU) Cisco UCS X9508 Chassis, offering one of the highest densities of compute, I/O, and storage per rack unit in the industry.

      The Cisco UCS X210c M6 provides these main features:

    CPU: Up to 2x 3rd Gen Intel® Xeon® Scalable Processors with up to 40 cores per processor and 1.5 MB Level 3 cache per core

    Memory: Up to 32x 256 GB DDR4-3200 DIMMs for up to 8 TB of main memory. Configuring up to 16x 512-GB Intel Optane persistent memory DIMMs can yield up to 12 TB of memory.

    Storage: Up to 6 hot-pluggable, Solid-State Drives (SSDs), or Non-volatile Memory Express (NVMe) 2.5-inch drives with a choice of enterprise-class Redundant Array of Independent Disks (RAIDs) or pass-through controllers with four lanes each of PCIe Gen 4 connectivity and up to 2 M.2 SATA drives for flexible boot and local storage capabilities

    Optional front mezzanine GPU module: The Cisco UCS Front Mezzanine GPU module is a passive PCIe Gen 4 front mezzanine option with support for up to two U.2 NVMe drives and two GPUs.

      mLOM virtual interface cards:

    Cisco UCS Virtual Interface Card (VIC) 14425 occupies the server's modular LAN on motherboard (mLOM) slot, enabling up to 50 Gbps of unified fabric connectivity to each of the chassis Intelligent Fabric Modules (IFMs) for 100 Gbps connectivity per server.

    Cisco UCS Virtual Interface Card (VIC) 15231 occupies the server's modular LAN on motherboard (mLOM) slot, enabling up to 100 Gbps of unified fabric connectivity to each of the chassis Intelligent Fabric Modules (IFMs) for 100 Gbps connectivity per server.

      Optional mezzanine card:

    Cisco UCS Virtual Interface Card (VIC) 14825 can occupy the server's mezzanine slot at the bottom rear of the chassis. This card's I/O connectors link to Cisco UCS X-Fabric technology. An included bridge card extends this VIC's 2x 50 Gbps of network connections through IFM connectors, bringing the total bandwidth to 100 Gbps per fabric (for a total of 200 Gbps per server).

    Cisco UCS PCI Mezz card for X-Fabric can occupy the server's mezzanine slot at the bottom rear of the chassis. This card's I/O connectors link to Cisco UCS X-Fabric modules and enable connectivity to the X440p PCIe Node.

      Security: The server supports an optional trusted platform module (TPM). Additional features include a secure boot FPGA and ACT2 anti-counterfeit provisions
