All Cisco UCS E-Series M3 Servers are high-density blade servers with single-socket Intel Xeon-D processors. They balance simplicity, performance, and application density while operating in an energy-efficient environment providing better energy efficiency than preceding models. The servers also include integrated remote lights-out management. They thus provide an excellent platform for introducing virtualization into the branch office and supporting mission-critical business applications. The innovative, zero-footprint form factor of the Cisco UCS E-Series Servers in conjunction with the lower total cost of ownership (TCO) of the Intel Xeon processor increases business agility and enhances reliability when compared to standalone rack-mount and tower servers.
