Cisco UCS C-Series Rack-Mount Servers extend unified computing and standalone innovations to an industry-standard form factor to help reduce total cost of ownership (TCO) and increase business agility. Designed to operate both in standalone environments and as part of the Cisco Unified Computing System, the Cisco UCS C-Series employs Cisco technology to help customers handle the most challenging workloads. The Cisco UCS C-Series incorporates many Cisco innovations such as standards-based unified network fabric; Cisco VN-Link virtualization support; Cisco Extended Memory Technology; and the capability to scale computing, I/O, disk, and memory resources independently. In addition, the Cisco UCS C-Series servers support an incremental deployment model and protect customer investments with a future migration path to unified computing.
The Cisco UCS C260 M2 Rack-Mount Server is one of the industry's highest-density two-socket rack-server platforms and is a critical building block in the Cisco Unified Computing System portfolio, offering compact performance for enterprise-critical applications within the Cisco UCS architecture and patented Cisco Extended Memory technology. It is well suited for IT departments that are looking for ways to increase computing performance, memory capacity, and disk drive I/O operations per second (IOPS) while deriving optimal value from the available space in their data centers, and it allows customers to avoid or reduce the need for costly per-socket or per-core licensing fees. With the Cisco UCS C260 M2 rack-mount server, Cisco continues to extend data center technology in every dimension, including CPU enhancements for better performance; expandability; security; and reliability, availability, and serviceability (RAS) features. The server also offers increased I/O performance, on-board storage capacity, and an exceptional memory footprint of up to 64 dual inline memory module (DIMM) slots in a two-rack-unit (2RU) form factor. In addition, the Cisco UCS C260 M2 is designed to increase performance and capacity for demanding virtualization and large-data-set workloads, service provider environments, enterprise data centers, and virtual desktop hosting. The system also helps improve throughput for large-data-set workloads, including database management systems and modeling and simulation applications.
