Inspur i48M6

High-density multi-node server with load balancing

Key Features

i48M6 is a multinode modular server optimized for high-density data centers. Based on the latest Intel Whitley platform, it can deploy 2 to 8 x dual-socket computing/storage nodes in a standard 4U rack, which stands for flexible scalability and meets the requirement of various applications. It is suitable for all kinds of scenarios, such as HPC, cloud computing, big data analysis, and mass storage.

Features

Ultimate Computing and storage density: 8 x NS5480M6 (computing nodes) can be deployed in the 4U space, which is 4 times the deployment density of a standard 2U rackmount server. 72 x 3.5-inch drives can be deployed in the 4U space (storage node - NS5486M6 and drive tray - NS5486JD).

I/O balancing and enhanced application performance: I/O is evenly distributed on two CPUs to maximize the application efficiency of the NUMA architecture and reduce response delay. Thus, the overall performance is improved by over 20%. 4U space supports up to 48 x I/O expansions to satisfy the data transmission in large-scale applications.

Modular design for flexible expansion: Adopt full modular design and flexible expansion of different modules, such as chassis, node, front and rear I/O, management module, and integrated network. Unified architecture and flexible design ensure the smooth expansion of data centers from small to large scale, saving the initial infrastructure investment to the greatest extent.

Precision engineering for secure and reliable operation: Redundant power supplies and cooling fans are shared by the system. Inspur’s unique control technologies and advanced air-cooling solution enable the optimal working condition to save energy and allow stable operation at the system level. Unique drive drawer tray and advanced slide rail design greatly improve maintenance convenience and data security.
