Benefits & Key Features:
Performance & High Availability:
highly available server platform
It uses a Smart Array P400 Controller with 256-MB cache to provide onboard redundant Array of Independent Disks (RAID) support.
At product introduction, the Cisco MCS 7845-H2 will ship with two Intel Xeon 2.33-GHz processors.
Redundant hot-swap power supplies
Redundant hot-swap fans
Hot-swap SAS hard drives configured using RAID 1
Integrated Lights Out 2 (iLO 2):
The Integrated Lights Out 2 (iLO 2) standard is included on the motherboard. Combining essential
management functions and diagnostics with basic lights-out functions as standard components of
the server, iLO 2 is available at no charge.
DAT Tape Support:
The Cisco MCS 7845-H2 can support an optional 36/72-GB universal-serial-bus (USB) external
Digital Audio Tape (DAT) drive or an optional USB rack-mount DAT drive. This tape drive connects
through one of the 4 USB 2.0 ports provided by the Cisco MCS-7845-H2. The external DAT drive
is orderable using part number DAT-USB-EXT-72=, and the rack-mounted 36/72-GB DAT drive is
orderable using part number DAT-USB-RM-72=.
Cisco offers a 1-year limited hardware warranty on Cisco Media Convergence Servers.

Cisco MCS 7845-H2 (DATA SHEET)
Hi all. can I install 2 different aplications on the same MCS?
No - Cisco MCS server do not support virtualization. You can only have one app per MCS server.
The UCS servers support virtualization and you can load ESXi and then have multiple applications hosted as guest VMs.
Please rate all helpful posts
Actually yes you can, enter the bios settings by pressing F9 -- > Advanced Options-- > Processor Options
and enable both :
No-Execute Memory Protection
Intel Virtualization Technology.
and then you can install ESXi on it.
i have lots of leftover MCS servers 7845/25/16 running ESXi 4 through 6 without any issues.
Hope this can help.
