Chassis Two rack unit (2RU) chassis
CPU Two Intel® Xeon® E7-2800 series processors Chipset Intel® 7500 (Boxboro) chipset
Memory Sixteen slots for memory riser boards.
The memory riser boards come in two choices:
■ Standard Intel chipset memory riser boards: each of these 16 risers can hold two DIMMs. This provides a poss ible total of up to 32 DIMMs and 512 GB of industry-standard DDR3 memory.
■ Optional memory riser boards containing a memory-expansion ASIC: each of the 16 risers can hold 4 DIMMs. This provides a possible total of up to 64 DIMMs and 1024 GB of industry-standard DDR3 memory
|Cisco FlexFlash drives
The server includes one internal Cisco FlexFlash drive, which is included on the I/O riser card.
This drive is pre-loaded with four virtual drives (implemented as flash memory). The four virtual drives contain, respectively, the Cisco Server Configuration Utility, the Cisco Host Upgrade Utility, the Cisco C-Series server drivers set, and a Hypervisor. These virtual drives are booted through the server’s F6 boot menu.
USB Flash drive - An optional 4GB USB drive can be used as a bootable drive
There are seven PCIe expansion slots:
■ Two standard-profile, half-length, x16 horizontal slots on riser cards
■ Four low-profile, half-length, x8 slots on motherboard
■ One low-profile, half-length, x4 slot (x8-length connector) on motherboard
■ All cards are half-length due to internal clearance
Factory-configured RAID support options:
■ RAID 0, 1, 5, 6, 10, 50, or 60 support for up to 16 SAS or SATA drives, with the optional LSI MegaRAID SAS 9261-8i RAID controller (up to two).
There are also two mounting points inside the chassis for the optional LSIRAID battery backup units that can be used with the controller cards.
|Internal storage devices
Drives are installed into configurable (one or two) drive bay modules that provide hot-pluggable front-panel access.
Each drive bay module can hold up to eight 2.5in x 0.55 in (63.5 mm x 14mm) SAS3 or SATA4 hard disk drives (HDDs) or solid state drives (SSDs), for a total of 16 drives
The server CIMC chip includes a Matrox G200 core. The first 8 MB of memory are allocated to the video core
