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.

What if a server had the density and cabling advantages of a blade server and the expandability of a rack server? Wonder no more. Leveraging more than 10 years of experience with software-defined stateless servers, the Cisco UCS® X210c M6 Compute Node is designed to be managed from the cloud 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 delivers policy-based configuration and accelerates the deployment of both physical and virtual workloads.
The UCS X210c M6 server form factor offers more I/O, more storage, better cooling, and seamless upgrades to connectivity technologies. Its features include the following:
● The 14000 and 15000 Series VICs supply more aggregate bandwidth with up to 200 Gbps per server.
● With six large-capacity drives, the UCS X210c M6 can be used for many workloads that used to require a rack server simply because of the storage requirements.
● Optionally, if you run workloads that require graphical acceleration, you can have two drives and up to two GPUs.
● The X210c node supports Cisco UCS X-Fabric Technology for additional GPUs and future storage and memory options.
Its vertical orientation and design allow for better airflow, increasing cooling for better reliability.
