Cisco UCS M142 Compute Cartridge
Flagship is a leading reseller of refurbished and custom built Cisco UCS M142 Compute Cartridges.
Features and Capabilities
The Cisco UCS M142 Compute Cartridge is a core component of the Cisco UCS M-Series Modular Server solution. It delivers a new unique infrastructure to meet the needs of today’s highly parallelized and distributed applications. It is part of the Cisco composable infrastructure portfolio.
The M142 Compute Cartridge features Intel Xeon Processors E3-1200 v3 and E3-1200 v4, which provide excellent CPU performance per watt.
The design allows Cisco to abstract server subsystems completely into the infrastructure and completely off the computing nodes. The disaggregated subcomponents are:
- Disk drives
With this separation of components between the M142 Compute Cartridge and the M4308 Modular Chassis, we can decouple the lifecycles of the subsystems. Now every subcomponent can be refreshed independently, on its own lifecycle schedule, without provoking a major platform refresh.
The M-Series design also allows for smaller increments of scale, so your applications gain the number of computing nodes they require to achieve the desired performance and availability. No more overprovisioning. No more wasted resources. Everything is under a single management tool for easy scale and management transparency.
With this groundbreaking design, the M-Series provides a highly dense, modular, and power-efficient platform designed to meet the needs of parallelized workload. It provides optimal:
- Performance per watt
- Computing capacity per rack unit
The Cisco UCS M-Series Modular Server system features a 2-rack-unit (RU) chassis built on the innovative foundation of Cisco Virtual Interface Card (VIC) technology.
The chassis can hold up to eight completely independent M142 Compute Cartridges with two servers per cartridge (16 total servers per chassis). All M4308 chassis connect to a pair of Cisco UCS Fabric Interconnects with Cisco UCS Manager. The result is easy and fast scalability with industry-leading Cisco UCS management.
