Inspur NF5280M5

Flexible Configurations for Various Application Scenarios

Key Features

Ultimate Performance

NF5280M5 supports the new generation Intel®  Xeon®  Scalable processors, with up to 28 cores and 56 threads per CPU, up to 24 DDR4-2933 memories. 24 hot-swap NVMe  SSDs full-flash configuration brings 15 billion + IOPS, huge leap on storage.

Supporting up to 4 double wide GPUs or 8 single wide GPUs. The FP16 computing power of single GPU can reach 112 teraflops which brings more feasibility for deep learning applications.

Profound Configuration

Supporting up to 20 x 3.5-inch hard drives or 31 x 2.5-inch hard drives in addition to 2 x M.2 SSDs to implement massive storage, which is 1.5 times larger than former generation.

Supporting free combination of OCP and PHY network cards with different network interfaces to provide  1Gb/10Gb/25Gb/40Gb flexible network configurations for different applications.

Supporting 9 x PCIe3.0 slots, 1 x OCP/PHY PCIe slot, meeting the system and performance demand of high-end customers.

Intelligent Management and Security

Conducting real-time monitoring and intelligent isolation and recovering. It adopts open management protocol and INSPUR BMC, which simplifies deployment, management and maintenance, optimized for large scale DC.

Supporting TPM2.0 security control, it conducts trust chain between soft and hardware as BIOS, memory, hard drive, OS and applications to prevent illegal write or replacement from unknown firmware. Ensuring system safe and controllable.
