The Cisco Unified Computing System (Cisco UCS) combines Cisco UCS B-Series Blade Servers with networking and storage access in a single converged system that simplifies management and delivers greater cost efficiency and agility with increased visibility and control. This server increases compute density through more cores and cache balanced with more memory capacity and drives and with faster I/O. Together these server improvements and complementary Cisco UCS system advancements deliver the best combination of features and cost efficiency to support IT's diverse needs. The Cisco UCS B200 M3 Blade Server delivers performance, versatility, and density without compromise. It addresses the broadest set of workloads, from IT and web infrastructure, through distributed database. Building on the success of the Cisco UCS B200 M2 Blade Server, the enterprise-class Cisco UCS B200 M3 Blade Server further extends the capabilities of the Cisco UCS portfolio in a half-width blade form factor. In addition, Cisco UCS has the architectural advantage of not having to power and cool excess switches in each blade chassis. With a larger power budget per blade server, Cisco can design uncompromised expandability and capabilities in its blade servers, as evidenced by the Cisco UCS B200 M3, with its leading memory slot and drive capacity.
