Cisco UCS M-Series Modular Servers deliver exceptional value for online content delivery like gaming, web serving, transcoding, and HPC. Built around Cisco’s virtual interface card (VIC) technology and the policy-based management of UCS Manager, this new design brings the award-winning architecture and management of Cisco Unified Computing to the world of parallelized workloads.

This unique design of the Cisco UCS M4308 chassis abstracts server sub-systems to efficiently provide power, cooling, I/O, and local storage resources to dense M-Series Compute Cartridges. With this groundbreaking design, the UCS M-Series provides a dense and power-efficient platform designed to maximize compute capacity per RU.

Today, two new cartridges have been added to the product portfolio.

Cisco UCS M1414 Compute Cartridge is a single-socket server using Intel® Xeon® E3-1200 v3 CPUs, with up to 32GB of DDR3 1600MHz memory. The high frequency CPUs used in the Cisco UCS M1414 M-series cartridge makes it ideal for applications requiring the highest clock speed like electronic design automation and simulation (EDA or ECAD).

Cisco UCS M2814 Compute Cartridge is a dual-socket server using Intel® Xeon® E5-2600 v3 CPUs, with up to 256GB of DDR4 2133MHz memory. The M2814 M-series cartridge enables ultra-dense virtual deployments, as well as cloud infrastructure applications that benefit from a high memory to core ratio and applications that leverage the large L2 CPU cache such as dynamic web content delivery and small in-memory databases.
