New Memory Architecture for the Data Center

The Cisco UCS B250 M2 Extended Memory Blade Server helps maximize performance and capacity for the most demanding virtualization and large dataset applications. It is a full-width, 2-socket blade server with increased throughput and more than double the industry-standard memory of traditional 2-socket x86 servers.

The UCS B250 M2 server extends the capabilities of the Cisco Unified Computing System, using Intel® Xeon® 5600 Series multicore processors to deliver even better performance and efficiency.

Each Cisco UCS 5108 Blade Server Chassis can house up to four UCS B250 M2 Blade Servers, with a maximum of 80 per Cisco Unified Computing System.
