Cisco UCS® E-Series Server brings data center-class blade servers to the branch office. These powerful, small‑form-factor, x86 64-bit blade servers reside in Cisco® branch-office routers: the Cisco 4000 Series Integrated Services Routers (ISRs) networking platforms. The blades are virtualization-ready and host essential infrastructure services and mission-critical business applications, all while you maintain a lean branch-office environment.
UCS-E180D-M3/K9 is a doublewide module which occupies two service-module slots side-by-side.
All Cisco UCS E-Series M3 Servers are high-density blade servers with single-socket Intel Xeon-D processors. They balance simplicity, performance, and application density while operating in an energy-efficient environment providing better energy efficiency than preceding models. The servers also include integrated remote lights-out management.
UCS-E180D-M3/K9 provides a better platform for introducing virtualization into the branch office and supporting mission-critical business applications. The innovative, zero-footprint form factor of the Cisco UCS E-Series Servers in conjunction with the lower total cost of ownership (TCO) of the Intel Xeon processor increases business agility and enhances reliability when compared to standalone rack-mount and tower servers.
The Cisco UCS E-Series Servers easily extend the Cisco UCS data center portfolio to branch-office environments. By adding virtualization to the servers, you can deploy new services incrementally on a schedule that best meets your timing and budget. Meanwhile, you avoid service-call costs for onsite visits to deploy new hardware or software.
Cisco UCS E-Series Servers address your changing business needs in the following ways:
