Inspur introduced computing dense i24 a high-end 2U4N rack-mounted server optimized for brand-new high-density data centers and applications. Extreme performance and ultimate flexible modular based design can meet various flexible demands which are Compute intensive, distributed infrastructure, super converged infrastructure platform and so on. In the limited space, i24 achieves perfect functionalities: high-density, efficiency, reliability and intelligence. Meanwhile, excellent scalability makes it even suitable for virtualization infrastructures, HPC and cloud platforms.
This server has high quality and high reliability on performance, storage and extension, and makes innovations and breakthroughs on computing performance, flexible configuration and intelligent management.
Extreme / World-class Performance
Inspur i24 incorporates eight new generation of Intel® Xeon® scalable processor into a 2U space which drastically improved the computing performance and satisfies the rigorous demand of cloud computing, big data, data mining, deep learning and other high-end IT applications. Supports 2666 MHz speeds based on the memory stick and aggregately achieve up to 4TB memory capacity. In addition, the server allows NVDIMM option which guarantees the better performance of cache node. It also supports NVMe All-flash SSDs to ensure the maximum front-end access rate.
In order to satisfy the various business demand, I24 provides an efficient and reliable infrastructure with extensible design options. Inspur i24 supports 4x 1U 2-socket half-width node (NS5162M5) and each node is connected to the enclosure. The enclosure can deploy 4 nodes at the same time and support easy installation and deployment. Each node is an independent server system which has independent CPU, memory as well as storage system. The server supports up to 24SFF or 12 LFF HDD/SSDs to satisfy the demand of internal storage and built-in SATA M.2 for OS installation. The system supports 12*PCO-E x16 and 4 OCP cards to make sure flexible I/O interface. With the CPU water-cooling option and 2*2000W high efficiency power supplies, i24 supports more efficient high-density data centers.
The i24 provides numerous management features to simplify the operation works and reduce the cost. The system embedded with the upgraded intelligent management system composed of CMC and BMC, it supports both IPMI 2.0 as well as Redfish. The CMC provides unified management and maintenance for power, fan and any other nodes and enables the access to the node monitoring information. Modularized node management strategy provides easy access to upgrades and serviceable to the whole system.
