For the last 5 years, Cisco has been empowering your branch IT networks with DC-class servers. 3000+ customers and growing. Our UCS E-series servers slim down your branch hardware footprint and boost application deployment flexibility with a converged network, compute, and storage platform.
Do Even More with Less
In this fast-paced digital world, the digitization of customer experiences and the Internet of Everything require you to run more mission-critical applications on the branch edge. With our new 3rd generation UCS E-series single wide blade, turbocharge your branch compute by 2x (compared to 2nd generation) without huge, power guzzling rack servers or dedicated appliance.

For example, let’s take a retail use case. In a typical deployment, a store may run a WAN optimization service such as Cisco virtual WAAS (vWAAS) and a Point-of-Sale (PoS) application on a UCS E-series within an ISR 4000 router. To accommodate guest Wi-Fi, the same blade can also run a virtual Wireless LAN controller (vWLC) to centralize wireless network visibility. And if physical security is monitored through video surveillance, then MediaSense is deployed to support recording, playback, live streaming, and storage of voice, video for business intelligence. Of course, you cannot omit the Intrusion Detection and Prevention System, e.g. FirePOWER Threat Defense either. However, there are two major concerns when deploying a multitude of applications.
Limited compute resources for high performance threat detection solution such as FirePOWER IDS/IPS
Lack of storage capacity which restricts high data storage applications and forces frequent cloud backups, thus further increasing costs
With the 3rd Gen UCS E-series 160S-M3, you don’t need a separate appliance for MediaSense or FirePOWER IDS/IPS. It can run on the same UCS E-series along with vWAAS and the PoS application. Additionally, you can leverage the extra higher storage capacity, up to 4TB, for print servers in large branches, security camera feeds, or any proprietary data intensive applications. By converging more apps into one blade, you reduce both OpEx and CapEx without compromising performance.
With UCS E-Series, you can take on compute-intensive applications and high-storage use-cases. See our model comparison chart below for the right specs that meet your specific IT challenges.

I need to update the WS-C4507R + E which is in version 03.08.03.E, and I intend to go to version 3.11.2E MD, I would like to know if I can go directly to a new version or if I need to scale up to version 3.11.2E ?
so, i have 4 switches. one switch feeds the other 3 switches that are in different locations.i have config-ed a vlan 500 with an IP of 10.30.13.0/28. enable EIGRP, etc. and attached a port to that vlan. On the remote switches, i'd like to have ...
I have been tasked with identifying several switches. Some in use and some still in boxes. Without running all over the facility is there a way to find out what a switch is i.e. 24 or 48 port by using the serial number in a online lookup something similar...
The question is from ENCOR learning. Why we need separate vlan (vlan0) for 802.1P traffic (CoS, QoS) if we already have 3-bit field reserved in any 802.1Q packet for QoS? What is actually flowing through vlan0?
I would like to begin using Prime to manage switch and router configurations across our enterprise.My concern is with security. The way I understand it is that I must supply Prime with r/w credentials to all of my network devices.My concern is that o...
