Inspur NF8480M5 vSAN ReadyNode

High Expansibility Computing Platform for Critical Application Load

Key Features

Optimal computation

The server supports Intel® Xeon® Scalable processors which implements the innovative “mesh” on-chip interconnect topology that delivers low latency and high bandwidth among cores, memory, and I/O controllers while improving the power efficiency. Intel Ultra Path Interconnect (UPI) links is used to achieve direct communication between processors.

It supports 48 DDR4 DIMMs with 50% memory expandability increase and 25% bandwidth increased, thus significantly reduces the system delay  caused by frequent IOs.

It supports up to 12 NVMe SSDs, with maximum read performance of 3.5GB/s.

Stability and reliability

It adopts the innovative E-SRA architecture with BMC software dual-level write protection, and independent BIOS refreshing through BMC, which ensures a safe and reliable firmware upgrade.

It leverages IMD enhanced memory protection and PCIe hot swap technology.

With its SCSA super current safety technology and the ultra-low impedance power supply, it has low line loss, high reliability, lower space occupation and higher maintenance efficiency.

Flexible expansion

Inspur NF8480M5 supports hierarchical storage schemes, with up to 24* 2.5”/3.5” hard drives, 12* U.2 NVMe SSDs and 2 built-in M.2 SSDs which can be used as OS boot drives, in order to satisfying storage requirements of different business scenarios. It supports 16 PCIe3.0 slots and 1 OCP slot. The PCIE bus resources  allows  flexible configuration, and support free switch between U.2 NVMe hard drive and PCIe expansion cards based on customer requirement.

Quick recovery

The system adopts the new generation LIDS (optic channel diagnosis system) and DSFI (deep system failure insight) technology which can have real-time full access to underlying faults information, therefor greatly improving troubleshooting efficiency and accelerating the system fault recovery.
