Inspur NF5180M5

A 1U 2-socket rack server with seamless compute density and scalability integration

Key Features

Excellent performance, High efficiency

The NF5180M5 supports the latest Intel ® Xeon ® scalable processor. Each processor has up to 28 cores and 56 threads and supports a maximum TDP of 205 W.

Configurable to a maximum of 24 DDR4-2933 DIMMs for a total of 3TB. The NF5180M5 also supports RDIMM, LDRIMM,ECC, memory imaging, and hot standby.

Supports up to 8 Optane™ PMem.

The 10 hot swappable NVMe SSD hard drives have an all-flash configuration and provide a ten-fold input/output operations per second (IOPS) increase compared to SATA SSDs for high-end enterprise applications, providing increased storage bandwidth.

Multiple configurations, superior scalability

Each front node supports up to 4 x 3.5-inch hard drives and 2 x SATA SSDs or 10 x 2.5-inch hard drives, while each rear node supports 2 x SATA SSDs, thus achieving a significant increase in storage to provide large-scale storage.

Supports 2 x SATA M.2 or 2 x PCIe M.2 SSDs for faster and more secure operating system startups.

A flexible OCP/PHY card slot is available for 10G, 25G, and 40G network ports, providing highly flexible network configurations for different applications.

Supports 3 PCIe 3.0 slots for customers requiring flexibility for diverse system scalability and performance.

Secure, reliable, easy to operate, and accessible Based on humanization designs, tool-free maintenance is available for certain components, further lowering the maintenance time and increasing operation availability. Inspur’s unique intelligent control technology optimizes internal cooling to ensure server stability even at temperatures of up to 35°C/95℉.

With the latest BMC technology, our technical support personnel are able to use a web management interface as well as the LED and front UID indicators to identify the location and status of fault issues. This simplifies maintenance, reduces troubleshooting time, and increases system availability.

All swappable components have a fool-proof design for easier maintenance.
