Cisco Unified Computing System now incorporates Intel Xeon processor E5-2600 and quadruples memory capacity
The Cisco UCS third-generation fabric computing platform incorporates the new Intel Xeon processor E5-2600 product family and includes multiple server form factors with up to eight times the memory capacity and four times the I/O compared to previous UCS servers. The Cisco UCS Manager now allows IT administrators to manage both blade and rack servers as a common entity, and extends the management domain to span thousands of servers across data centers around the world. The chassis I/O module 2204XP provides options for 80Gbps and 160Gbps down to each chassis to handle workload bursts. The module also offers port channeling, which allows load balancing across all ports to improve efficiency and resiliency through higher link utilization and bandwidth.
