The Cisco UCS C220 M3 Rack Server is designed for performance and density over a wide range of business workloads, from web serving to distributed databases. The enterprise-class Cisco UCS C220 M3 server further extends the capabilities of the Cisco UCS portfolio in a 1RU form factor with the addition of the Intel® Xeon® processor E5-2600 product family, which delivers significant performance and efficiency gains. In addition, the Cisco UCS C220 M3 server offers up to two Intel® Xeon® processor E5-2600s product family, 16 DIMM slots, eight disk drives, and two 1 Gigabit Ethernet LAN-on-motherboard (LOM) ports, delivering better density and performance in a compact package.
The Cisco UCS C220 M3 interfaces with Cisco UCS using another unique Cisco innovation: the Cisco UCS Virtual Interface Card (VIC 1225). The Cisco UCS Virtual Interface Card (VIC 1225) is a virtualization-optimized Fibre Channel over Ethernet (FCoE) PCI Express (PCIe) 2.0 x8 10-Gbps adapter designed for use with Cisco UCS C-Series servers. The VIC is a dual-port 10 Gigabit Ethernet PCIe adapter that can support up to 256 PCIe standards-compliant virtual interfaces, which can be dynamically configured so that both their interface type (network interface card [NIC] or host bus adapter [HBA]) and identity (MAC address and worldwide name [WWN]) are established using just-in-time provisioning. In addition, the Cisco UCS VIC 1225 can support network interface virtualization and Cisco® Data Center Virtual Machine Fabric Extender (VM-FEX) technology.
