The Cisco® UCS C220 M4 SFF rack server is the newest 2-socket, 1U rack server from Cisco, designed for
both performance and expandability over a wide range of storage-intensive infrastructure workloads from
web serving to distributed database.
The enterprise-class UCS C220 M4 small form factor (SFF) server extends the capabilities of Cisco’s Unified
Computing System portfolio in a 1U form factor with the addition of the Intel Xeon E5-2600 v3 and v4 series
processor family that deliver significant performance and efficiency gains. In addition, the UCS C220 M4 SFF
server provides 24 DIMM slots, up to 8 drives and 2 x 1 GbE LAN-on-motherboard (LOM) ports delivering
outstanding levels of density and performance in a compact 1U package.
The C220 M4 SFF 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). These features combine to provide outstanding
levels of internal memory and storage expandability along with exceptional performance.
The Cisco UCS C220 M4 SFF 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.
