Cisco unwraps its least expensive UCS server

time:2014 年 09 月 14 日/}

Will be aimed at mid-sized companies’ data centres or branches, and priced starting at just under US$20,000

If Apple can have a iPad mini and Samsung a Galaxy Mini smart phone, why can’t there be a mini server?

Now there is one, albeit one that starts at just under US$20,000.

Cisco Systems unveiled the UCS Mini on Thursday, the least expensive of its data centre-oriented unified computing server line.

The idea is to take the computing power of a UCS system and bring it to branches, remote sites or even to power the data centres of mid-sized companies.

“When the Americans talk about (the Mini) they say it’s good for retail sites,” Damian Serjeant, Cisco Canada’s general manager of data centre products, said in an interview.

“But 80 to 90 per cent of our customers (here) are mid-market … so I see it as almost primary for some of our customers. This is really going to change the game for us in Canada and open up a lot of net new opportunities for us.”

Cisco also announced a new M series of UCS servers, aimed largely at service providers.
