The Cisco UCS B200 M6 Blade Server delivers market-leading performance, versatility, and density without compromise for workloads ranging from web infrastructure to distributed databases.
 

The 3rd Gen Intel Xeon Scalable Processors offer up to 40 percent more performance with 43 percent more cores than the M5 generation. And 33 percent more memory - up to 8 TB of memory or, when combined with Intel Optane PMem, 12 TB – than the M5 generation. The Cisco UCS B200 M6 Blade Server offers exceptional levels of performance, flexibility, and I/O throughput to run your applications.

Benefits
