Product Review

The Cisco UCSC-C240-M3S supports the Intel Xeon E5-2600 v2 or E5-2600 CPUs and includes an Intel C600 series chipset within a 2 RU chassis, offering decent processing power for network operations. However, it lacks a SAS Expander, limiting its backplane connectivity for high-density storage solutions. Its operational temperature range and altitude specifications ensure reliability across various environmental conditions, but the single internal USB 2.0 port may restrict flexibility for certain hardware configurations.


The Cisco UCSC-C240-M3S is a server designed for both performance and scalability, meeting the demands of various applications in data center environments. This 2RU chassis server supports the Intel Xeon E5-2600 v2 or E5-2600 series processors, leveraging the Intel C600 Series Chipset. It is engineered to offer a balance between processing power, energy efficiency, and operational reliability. This server model does not include a SAS Expander but supports a 16-Drive backplane, providing ample storage capacity. It accommodates 2.5-inch SAS or SATA hard disk drives (HDDs), offering flexibility in storage options. The system's storage capabilities are further enhanced with support for Cisco Flexible Flash, allowing for two 32GB drives for secure, removable mass storage. Power supply redundancy is ensured within the unit, a critical feature for maintaining system uptime and reliability. The server is also equipped with an embedded RAID option, enhancing data protection and performance. For connectivity, the unit includes a single USB 2.0 port internally, designed for maintenance or direct access tasks. The system's physical environment tolerance is noteworthy, with operating temperature ranges from 5°C to 40°C and nonoperating temperatures from -40°C to 65°C. It maintains operational reliability in humidity levels from 10% to 90% (noncondensing) and can function at altitudes from 0 ft to 10,000 ft when operating, extending to 40,000 ft when nonoperational. This wide range of environmental tolerance ensures the server's adaptability to various data center environments. Acoustic levels are managed effectively, with a sound power level of 5.8 dBm and a sound pressure level of 43 dBA, minimizing noise pollution in the workplace. Key hardware specifications include:
  • Multi-Bit Error Protection, ensuring data integrity and system reliability.
  • Five expansion slots, providing scalability and flexibility for additional cards and hardware enhancements.
  • Minimum operating altitude of 0 ft and a maximum operating altitude of 10,000 ft, ensuring reliable performance across various geographical locations.
The Cisco UCSC-C240-M3S is designed to support a broad range of applications, from virtualization and cloud computing to enterprise infrastructure, ensuring it meets the needs of modern data centers. Its comprehensive feature set, combined with its environmental and operational resilience, makes it a suitable choice for organizations looking for a server that balances performance, expandability, and reliability.
