The Cisco UCS C250 M1 server is a high-performance, memory-intensive, two-socket, 2RU rack-mount server designed to increase performance and capacity for demanding virtualization and large-data-set workloads. It also can reduce the cost of smaller memory footprints.

The system is built for virtualized workloads in:

  • Enterprise data centers
  • Service provider environments
  • Virtual desktop hosting

The system can also help increase performance for large-data-set workloads, including database management systems and modeling and simulation applications.

  • Up to two Intel Xeon 5500 Series multicore processors
  • Up to 384 GB of industry-standard double-data-rate (DDR3) main memory (48 dual in-line memory modules [DIMMs])
  • Up to eight internal small form factor (SFF), (SAS), or (SATA) drives; up to 4 TB total
  • RAID 0 and 1 support for up to eight SAS or SATA drives through optional PCI Express (PCIe) controller; and RAID 0, 1, 5, 6, 10, 50, and 60 support for up to eight SAS or SATA drives with optional LSIMegaRAID adapter
  • Support for up to five PCIe cards in three low-profile, half-length x8 and two full-height, half-length x16 slots
  • Four integrated Gb Ethernet ports and two 10/100 Mbps Ethernet management ports for accessing the Cisco UCS Integrated Management Controller
  • Front-panel interface with video, two USB, and serial port connections. Back-panel video, two USB, and serial port connections
  • Increased reliability, availability, and serviceability through optional dual-redundant power supplies and front panel-accessible hot-swap cooling fans
