NF5280M5 is a 2U 2-socket rack-mounted server based on the new generation Intel® Xeon scalable processor, optimized for the demand of data center applications. NF5280M5 applies ultimate design concept to provide better performance, scalability and storage, which is particularly suitable for applications such as cloud compute, big data and deep learning.

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.

  • Intelligent Management and Security

    Conducting real-time monitoring and intelligent isolation and recovering. It adopts open management protocol and 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.

  • Profound Configuration

    Supporting up to 20*3.5” hard drives or 31*2.5”hard drives in addition to 2*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*PCIe3.0 slots, 1*OCP/PHY PCIe slot, meeting the system and performance demand of high-end customers.
