Inspur released its two M6 series four-socket servers supporting the latest 3rd Gen Intel Xeon scalable processors.
Inspur said its NF8260M6, a 2U 4-socket server, is optimized for cloud scenarios. Inspur said its NF8480M6, a 4U 4-socket server, is aimed at mission critical application scenarios of traditional enterprise customers.
The 3rd Gen Intel Xeon Scalable Processor supports four-socket and eight-socket servers, with a single CPU of up to 28 cores. Bfloat16 numeric format is supported for the first time in a mainstream CPU to enhance the AI deep learning performance and computing speed.
Inspur NF8260M6 can support 4 processors in a 2U space, up to 112 cores, offering a higher compute density which can cut down on 50 percent of space use, 40 percent of operation and maintenance cost, and 7 percent of power consumption, thus reducing the overall TCO as compared to 2U 2-socket servers.
Inspur said the two four-socket servers support up to 48DIMM, DDR4 and the new Intel Optane persistent memory (PMem)200 Series, providing increased memory capacity.
Each socket provides a maximum of 4.5TB memory (6*512GB Intel Optane PMem + 6*256GB DDR4 DRAM) to support application scenarios such as in-memory database, data warehousing, SAP HANA and OLAP(online analytics processing), to assist customers in the analysis and mining of massive data sets, facilitate decision-making and marketing, and create greater value and benefits for customers.
Both servers adopt balanced topology design to ensure balanced distribution of business load and improve overall business performance, while reducing cross-CPU service processing delay, providing more efficient data processing solutions for load balancing, deep package inspection (DPI) and other scenarios.
Inspur said NF8480M6 and NF8260M6 onboard can support up to six standard PCIe slots to meet more than 90 percent of the customer’s business needs without additional Riser expansion.
They can be expanded more through Riser to meet different customer needs such as balanced expansion, heterogeneous computing, and high cost performance.
Inspur said four-socket servers provide different disk solutions for customers with different storage requirements to meet high IOPS, high cost performance and mainstream business needs respectively, so as to truly achieve on-demand distribution.
