The CIMC is an on-board management unit for the Cisco UCS C-series Rack-mount servers that provides out-of-band management capabilities.  There is no additional cost to use the CIMC.  However, you might consider other management options if you prefer a single management system rather than managing each server via CIMC separately.  The Cisco UCS C-Series Management Options Video Data Sheet ( has some useful information on the management options for the Cisco UCS C-series Rack-mount servers.
