Economical, High-Capacity, Internal Storage
The Cisco UCS C210 M2 server is a general- purpose, 2-socket, 2 rack unit (RU) rack server that balances performance, density, and efficiency for storage-intensive workloads. The system is built for applications such as network file servers and appliances, storage servers, database servers, and content-delivery servers.
Building on the success of the UCS C-Series servers, the UCS C210 M2 server extends the capabilities of the Cisco Unified Computing System, using Intel's latest Xeon 5600 Series multicore processors to deliver even better performance and efficiency.
