Whether deployed as standalone servers or part of the Cisco Unified Computing SystemTM (Cisco UCS), Cisco UCS C-Series Servers provide a flexible, scalable, cost-effective, standard, and tested platform that meets business needs without compromise. Cisco® SmartPlay bundles provide a range of computing and memory configurations to help businesses quickly deploy Microsoft Exchange Server environments. A small, self-contained standalone solution with internal storage uses the Cisco UCS C240 M3 Rack Server (Figure 1). For larger implementations, the Cisco UCS C220 M3 Rack Server combines with shared storage to deliver greater scalability. For organizations wanting the benefits of a single unified system, the Integrated Cisco UCS SmartPlay bundle provides a substantially discounted entry point into Cisco UCS
