Delivering Balanced Price and Performance

The Cisco UCS B22 M3 Blade Server delivers a balanced price-performance ratio feature set to address quick deployment of IT infrastructure and scale-out workloads. The Cisco UCS B22 M3 server takes advantage of the power of the latest Intel® Xeon® processor E5-2400 product family with:

  • Expandability to 384 GB of RAM (using 32 GB DIMMs)
  • Two hot-plug drives
  • Two PCIe mezzanine slots

In addition, Cisco delivers the architectural advantage of not having to power and cool excess switches in each UCS blade chassis. Having a larger power budget per blade server helps Cisco to design uncompromised expandability and versatility in its blade servers, as evidenced by the density and price-performance ratio offered by Cisco UCS blade servers and their leading memory slot and drive capacities.

Features and Capabilities

  • One dedicated VIC 1240 slot and one mezzanine slot
  • Suitable for scale-out applications
  • Cisco SingleConnect technology for one simplified link for rack servers, blade servers, and virtual machines
  • Exceptional building block for the Cisco Unified Computing System
  • Half-width form factor for density, price and performance optimization
  • Up to 80 Gbps IO bandwidth

Specifications at a Glance

  • Up to two processors from Intel® Xeon® E5-2400 and E5-2400 v2 product family
  • Up to 384 GB of RAM with 12 DIMM slots
  • Up to two SAS or SATA or SSD drives
  • Cisco UCS Virtual Interface Card (VIC) 1240, is a 4x 10 Gigabit Ethernet, FCoE-capable adapter, which when combined with the VIC 1280, enables up to 8 x 10 Gigabit blade bandwidth
  • The Fusion IO and LSI cards significantly improve application performance
  • Cisco UCS 5108 Blade Server Chassis can house up to eight Cisco UCS B22 M3 Blade Servers
