NF5180M4 targets industries include ISP, Telecom, Government, Communications, Large and Medium Sized Enterprises, Energy, and High-Performance Computing.


Key Features

Comparable to 2U system performance

Leveraging Intel® Xeon® E5-2600 v3/v4 series processors, NF5180M4 systems are 50% larger (in core count and cache size) than the previous generation, featuring 2133MHz maximum frequency.

In terms of memory, the NF5180M4 uses the latest DDR4 memory technology. The 24 memory slots can support a maximum capacity of 3T, as needed for enterprise virtualization and high workloads.

Regarding the PCIE slots it has the flexibility to support 3 PCIE – 3.0   in 1 U space.

Using Inspur's unique F-LOM technology, the NF5180M4 achieves break-through network performance. Users can customize the 10 Gigabit adapters according to their networking needs.

The NF5180M4 also supports IPMI 2.0 and SNMP3.0 technology, for remote system monitoring, remote KVM and virtual media.

The system also features Inspur’ s external visualization management module, which simplifies device management in the datacenter environment. With Inspur's light path diagnostic; IT service personnel can quickly determine which device needs maintenance and quickly resolve the problem

Power control, cooling system design and system security

There are multiple temperature sensors in the system which capture the internal temperature and conduct dynamic regulation of the fan speed in real time. Carefully designed cooling system ensures stable and safe operation of the server.

The NF5180M4 leverages Inspur’ s power consumption management technology for real-time monitoring and control of the system power and for improving the overall performance.

The top cover safety lock and intrusion alarm have further strengthened the security of the system. It also complies with TPM2.0 trusted encryption technology for data protection security
