Cisco UCS continues its world record tradition!

- July 11, 2017 - 1 Comment

Contributing author: Vijay Durairaj

Today we are announcing our latest generation of UCS servers based on the Intel® Xeon® Scalable processor family and 6 industry standard world record benchmarks. Since Cisco first entered the server business, we’ve been setting records and our new M5 servers are no exception.

For details on the new Cisco UCS M5 servers, check out Satinder Sethi’s blog, watch the TechWiseTV episode, or go to www.cisco.com/go/ucs.

 

Using industry-standard benchmarks is a great way to compare performance. With our 6 world records, Cisco continues to show how customers can accelerate their performance and get faster time to value with UCS.

Cisco UCS World record benchmark results announced this week include:

Cisco UCS C240 M5

SAP SD 2-tier benchmark#1 2-socket server for SAP SD 2-tier. The Cisco UCS C240 M5 delivered 31855 SD users – a 50% increase when compared to Cisco’s previous result.1
Detailed official benchmark disclosure report.

SPECjbb®2015 MultiJVM#1 2-socket server result for Max-jOPS. The C240 M5 delivered 179,534 max-jOPS – a 52% increase when compared to Cisco’s previous result.2
Detailed official benchmark disclosure report.

SPECjbb®2015 MultiJVM#1 2-socket server result for critical-jOPS. The C240 M5 delivered 118,551 critical-jOPS – a 65% increase when compared to Cisco’s previous result.3
Detailed official benchmark disclosure report.

SPECjbb®2015 CompositeJVM#1 2-socket server result for Max-jOPS. The C240 M5 delivered 155,296 max-jOPS – a 45% increase when compared to previous generation #1 result.4
Detailed official benchmark disclosure report.

SPEComp®G_base2012#1 2-socket server for SPECompG_base2012. The C240 M5 delivered 23.1 ompG base – an 86% increase when compared to Cisco’s previous #1 result.5
Detailed official benchmark disclosure report.

 

Cisco UCS C480 M5

SPECfp®_base2006 – #1 4-socket server for SPECfp_base2006. The Cisco UCS C480 M5 delivered 150 floating point base – a 17% increase when compared to Cisco’s previous result.6
Detailed official benchmark disclosure report.

 

It is interesting to note that although all vendors have access to same Intel Xeon Scalable CPUs, only Cisco UCS unleashes their power to deliver high performance to applications through the power of unification. The unique, fabric-centric architecture of Cisco UCS integrates the CPUs into a system with a better balance of resources that brings processor power to life. Cisco’s results demonstrate the degree to which Cisco servers deliver the power of the new Intel Xeon Scalable processors. Cisco UCS maximizes Intel innovations and with improved performance of up to 86%. You can count on both innovation and versatile performance from Cisco UCS: It’s not a server. It’s a system.
