The Cisco UCS® C480 ML M5 Rack Server is a no-compromise purpose-built Cisco UCS C-Series server for deep learning in a 4-Rack-Unit (4RU) form factor.

Product overview

The Cisco UCS C480 ML M5 Rack Server is a purpose-built server for deep learning. It is storage- and I/O-optimized to deliver industry-leading performance for training models. The Cisco UCS C480 ML M5 delivers outstanding levels of storage expandability and performance options for standalone or Cisco Unified Computing System™ (Cisco UCS)–managed environments in a 4RU form factor. And because of its modular design, you pay for only what you need. It offers these capabilities:

  • Eight NVIDIA SXM2 V100 32G modules with NVLink interconnect
  • The latest Intel® Xeon® Scalable processors with up to 28 cores per socket and support for two processor configurations. It supports both first- and second-generation Intel Xeon Scalable CPUs
  • 2933-MHz DDR4 memory and 24 DIMM slots for up to 7.5 terabytes (TB) of total memory
  • Support for the Intel Optane™ DC Persistent Memory (128G, 256G, and 512G)
  • Memory speeds increase from 2666 MHz to 2933 MHz
  • Intel Optane DC Persistent Memory Modules (DCPMM) – 128G, 256G, and 512G[1]
  • Up to 7.5 TB using 12x128G DDR4 DIMMs and 12x512G Intel Optane DC Persistent Memory Modules
  • Four PCI Express (PCIe) 3.0 slots for 100G UCS VIC 1495
  • Flexible storage options with support for up to 24 Small-Form-Factor (SFF) 2.5-inch, SAS/SATA Solid-State Disks (SSDs) and Hard-Disk Drives (HDDs)
  • Up to six PCIe NVMe disk drives
  • One Cisco® 12-Gbps SAS Modular RAID Controller in a dedicated slot
  • M.2 boot options
  • Dual embedded 10 Gigabit Ethernet LAN-On-Motherboard (LOM) ports
