Cisco UCS E-series servers is a power-optimized general-purpose x86 64-bit blade server. This price-to-performance optimized, single-socket blade server balances simplicity, performance, reliability, and power efficiency and is well suited for applications and infrastructure services typically deployed in small offices and branch offices. By using the Cisco ISR G2 as the blade server chassis, customers can now deploy a single converged networking and computing platform designed specifically for remote-office and branch-office infrastructure consolidation. Cisco UCS E-series server delivers Intel Xeon processor in combination with integrated remote lights-out management in a blade server form factor. This powerful processor delivers multiple cores and threads in a reduced-power envelope, providing improved performance and better energy efficiency than preceding models, making it the ideal platform for introducing virtualization in the branch office. The zero-footprint form factor of the Cisco UCS E-series server in conjunction with the Intel Xeon processor offers significant total cost of ownership (TCO) savings, increased business agility, and greater reliability when compared to standalone rack-mount and tower servers. The Cisco UCS E-series server extends the Cisco UCS product portfolio to meet the needs of customers who want to deploy a virtualization-ready computing infrastructure in the branch-office environment while maintaining a lean branch-office architecture. By combining virtualization with the server, organizations can deploy services incrementally on a schedule that best meets the organization's timing and budget while avoiding service-call costs for on-site visits to deploy hardware or software.
