Intel Xeon E5-2600: Server Vendors, Others Roll Out Red Carpet


Cisco: Updates UCS With Xeon Servers, Unified Management

Cisco unveiled the third generation of its Cisco UCS fabric computing platform centered on new Xeon E5-2600 processor-based servers featuring enhanced unified management technology.

Cisco introduced three servers, including the Cisco UCS B200 M3 half-blade form factor blade server which supports 24 DIMM slots of memory and up to 80 Gbps of I/O bandwidth, the 1U UCS C220 MC rack mount server targeting business work loads ranging from Web services to distributed databases, and the 2U UCS C240 M3 rack server targeting more storage-intensive workloads.

On the management side, Cisco UCS Manager now better manages both blade and rack mount servers in a single domain.
