- Unified fabric
Manage blade and rack servers from the Cisco UCS 6100 or 6200 series fabric interconnects using Cisco UCS Manager.
- Centralized management and stateless computing.
Through Cisco UCS Manager service profiles, reduces the number of manual steps required to deploy servers in the data center, improving server policy consistency and coherency. Allows servers and support infrastructure to be provisioned in minutes instead of days, shifting IT's focus from maintenance to strategic initiatives. Reduces configuration errors significantly as blades are added or repurposed. Enables service profile movement from blade to blade, rack server to blade, blade to rack server, or blade to blade in another chassis.
- Auto discovery and configuration
Requires no configuration; as with all Cisco UCS components, blades are automatically recognized and configured by Cisco UCS Manager.
- Extensive monitoring
Through Cisco UCS Manager, provides extensive environmental monitoring for each blade. Allows use of user thresholds to optimize environmental management of the blade.
- Large memory footprint
48 DIMM slots provide configuration flexibility, performance, and expansion.
Designed for enterprise performance and scalability, the Cisco UCS B420 M3 Blade Server combines the advantages of 4-socket computing with the cost-effective Intel Xeon processor E5-4600 product family, for demanding virtualization and database workloads. With its industry-leading compute density, I/O bandwidth, and memory footprint, the Cisco UCS B420 M3 is a balanced high-performance platform that complements the Cisco UCS 4-socket blade server portfolio.
The Cisco UCS B420 M3 is a full-width blade. Up to four of these high-density, 4-socket blade servers can reside in the six-rack-unit (6RU) Cisco UCS 5108 Blade Server Chassis. In addition, the Cisco UCS B420 M3 is part of the Cisco Unified Computing System, which combines blade and rack servers with networking and storage access in a single unified system. Centrally configured through unified, model-based management, Cisco UCS simplifies and accelerates deployment of enterprise-class applications running in bare-metal, virtualized, and cloud-computing environments.
