SD card in my ML350p G8 - what is it for?

I noticed a while back a SD card slot on my Ml350p G8 motherboard. What is it for? Can I install a 64 GB card and have some onboard flash based storage? I'm guessing it would be kind of slow, running at 90 MB/s maximum.

Thanks!

It is used for installing a supported OS like ESX.


Hope this helps!
