The UCS C220 M5 SFF server extends the capabilities of Cisco's Unified Computing System portfolio in a 1U form factor with the addition of the Intel® Xeon® Processor Scalable Family, 24 DIMM slots for 2666-MHz or 2933-MHz DIMMs with capacity points up to 128 GB, 2666-MHz PMEMs with capacity points up to 512 GB, two 2 PCI Express (PCIe) 3.0 slots, and up to 10 SAS/SATA hard disk drives (HDDs) or solid state drives (SSDs). The C220 M5 SFF server also includes one dedicated internal slot for a 12G SAS storage controller card.
The latest update includes support for 2nd Generation Intel® Xeon® Scalable Processors, 2933-MHz DDR4 memory, and the new 512GB Intel® Persistent Memory Modules (PMEMs). With this combination of features, up to 9 TB of memory is possible (using 12 x 256 GB DDR4 DIMMs and 12 x 512 GB PMEMs).
The C220 M5 server includes one dedicated internal modular LAN on motherboard (mLOM) connector for installation of a Cisco Virtual Interface Card (VIC) or third-party network interface card (NIC), without consuming a PCI slot, in addition to 2 x 10Gbase-T Intel x550 embedded (on the motherboard) LOM ports.
The Cisco UCS C220 M5 server can be used standalone, or as part of the Cisco Unified Computing System, which unifies computing, networking, management, virtualization, and storage access into a single integrated architecture, enabling end-to-end server visibility, management, and control in both bare metal and virtualized environments.
