Bias-Free Language

The documentation set for this product strives to use bias-free language. For the purposes of this documentation set, bias-free is defined as language that does not imply discrimination based on age, disability, gender, racial identity, ethnic identity, sexual orientation, socioeconomic status, and intersectionality. Exceptions may be present in the documentation due to language that is hardcoded in the user interfaces of the product software, language used based on RFP documentation, or language that is used by a referenced third-party product.

Un/Box the future with Cisco UCS® X-Series Modular System and Cisco Intersight. Embrace an adaptable, future-ready, and cloud-operated system to simplify IT and innovate at the speed of software.

Cisco UCS® X-Series Modular System

Product overview

The Cisco UCS X-Series Modular System simplifies your data center, adapting to the unpredictable needs of modern applications while also providing for traditional scale-out and enterprise workloads. It reduces the number of server types to maintain, helping to improve operational efficiency and agility as it helps reduce complexity. Powered by the Cisco Intersight cloud-operations platform, it shifts your focus from administrative details to business outcomes—with hybrid cloud infrastructure that is assembled from the cloud, shaped to your workloads, and continuously optimized.

The Cisco UCS X-Series was engineered to be modular and flexible to offer adaptability and workload flexibility. With the introduction of PCIe Node and X-Fabric technology, X-Series now supports workloads that require GPUs. The unique architecture dramatically simplifies the addition, removal, or upgrade of GPUs to compute nodes. The Cisco UCS X440p PCIe Node allows you to add up to four GPUs to a Cisco X210c M6, X210c M7 or X410c M7 Compute Node with Cisco UCS X-Fabric Technology. Cisco UCS X-Series has no midplane; this innovative design provides fewer obstructions for better airflow. The vertically oriented X210c compute nodes and the X440p PCIe nodes connect directly to horizontally oriented X-Fabric modules. This enables seamless upgrades to future compute nodes, resource nodes, and X-Fabric modules without requiring any forklift upgrades.

Features and benefits

Main features

The Cisco UCS X440p PCIe Node is the first PCIe resource node to integrate into the Cisco UCS X-Series Modular System. The Cisco UCS X9508 Chassis has eight node slots, up to four of which can be X440p PCIe nodes when paired with a Cisco UCS X210c M6 Compute Node. The UCS X440p PCIe Node supports two x16 full-height, full-length dual slot PCIe cards, or four x8 full-height, full-length single slot PCIe cards and requires both UCS 9416 X-Fabric modules for PCIe connectivity. This provides up to 16 GPUs per chassis to accelerate your applications with the UCS X440p Nodes. If your application needs even more GPU acceleration, up to two additional GPUs can be added on each UCS X210c compute node.

Cisco UCS X440p supports following GPU options:

     Nvidia H100 Tensor Core GPU

     Nvidia L40 GPU

     Nvidia L4 Tensor Core GPU

     Nvidia A100 Tensor Core GPU

     Nvidia A16 GPU

     Nvidia A40 GPU

     Nvidia T4 Tensor Core GPU

     Intel Data Center GPU Flex 140

     Intel Data Center GPU Flex 170
