As IT’s needs diversify ever so slightly year after year and emphasis is placed on increased performance and capacity, meeting those needs requires that server architecture adapts and changes as well.
Cisco’s UCS C240 M3 Rack Server has been designed from the ground up for exactly those requirements, as it offers both performance and expandability for a wide range of storage-intensive workloads.
The rack-mountable C240 is Cisco’s follow-up to the highly-successful enterprise-class C210 M2 rack server, and expands the capabilities of Cisco’s Unified Computing System (UCS) portfolio.
UCS is known for its form-factor-agnosticism, as it combines C-series UCS rack servers and B-series blade servers with network and storage access, all on a single converged system that makes management simpler while also driving incredible cost efficiency. But the benefits don’t end there – UCS also delivers the kind of agility needed in today’s fast-changing IT environments, in addition to increased visibility and control. In short, server systems based on Cisco’s UCS technology are any control-freak network administrator’s dream-come-true.
The C240 provides 24 DIMM slots, space for up to 24 drives and four 1GbE LAN on Motherboard ports, providing the required storage and memory expandability, which all work together to deliver the excellent performance expected of modern-day server hardware.
Wide-ranging support for the latest Intel Xeon processors round out the potent hardware line-up available to system builders, and giving them all the required flexibility to build servers tailored to specific customer requirements and workloads.
So no matter if you’re a big or a small business, or if you want to improve collaboration within your organisation or you want an appliance that can handle and analyse petabytes of data, Cisco’s C240 can do all of that and more.
