UCS C240 M4
High-Density Rack Server
(Large Form Factor Disk Drive Model)
The UCS C240 M4 LFF server is the newest 2-socket, 2U rack server from Cisco, designed for both performance and expandability over a wide range of storage intensive infrastructure workloads from big data to collaboration.
The enterprise-class UCS C240 M4 LFF server extends the capabilities of Cisco’s Unified Computing System portfolio in a 2U form factor with the addition of the Intel® Xeon E5-2600 v3 and v4 series processor family that delivers the best combination of performance, flexibility and efficiency gains. In addition, the UCS C240 M4 LFF server provides 24 DIMM slots, up to 6 PCI Express (PCIe) 3.0 slots, up to 12 front-loading LFF drives plus two (optional) internal SFF SATA boot drives for a total of 14 internal drives.
The C240 M4 server includes a modular LAN on motherboard (mLOM) slot 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 1 GbE embedded (on the motherboard) LOM ports. These features combine to provide outstanding levels of internal memory and storage expandability along with exceptional performance.
The Cisco UCS C240 M4 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.
