NF5280R6 is a high-end dual-socket server featuring the Ampere Altra/Altra Max processor. Based on the latest Arm Architecture, it breaks more application bottlenecks. NF5280R6 has high quality and reliability. With the high computing performance and configuration flexibility, NF5280R6 can fulfill a variety of complicated workloads, and particularly fits application scenario such as cloud container deployment, Android cloud games, and big data.

Key Features
  • Exceptional Performance

    1. NF5280R6 supports two latest Ampere® Altra® processors, each of which has up to 80 cores and 80 threads, with a maximum TDP of 250 W and a maximum frequency of 3.3 GHz. It supports 2 groups of x16 CCIX links, with a transmission rate of up to 25 GT/s per link. It also supports Altra Max® processors, each of which has up to 128 cores, further boosting its performance. 

    2. NF5280R6 supports up to 32 DDR4 ECC memory modules (3200 MT/s, RDIMM), offering a maximum capacity of 2 TB to deliver high speeds and superior availability.

  • Agile Expansion

    1. Up to 12 × 3.5" or 2.5" SAS/SATA/NVMe drives in the front or 4 × 2.5" SAS/SATA/NVMe drives at the rear. 

    2. Optional OCP NIC 3.0 module with multiple network port options (10 Gb/s, 25 Gb/s, 40 Gb/s, or 100 Gb/s), offering a more flexible network architecture for different applications.

    3. Up to 8 standard PCle expansion cards, further enhancing l/O performance. 1 Optional 1 on-board NVMe M.2 drive for diverse storage demands.

  • Smart Management

    1. With a user-friendly design, the entire system supports tool-free maintenance. The enhanced and optimized structures realize easy assembly/disassembly and greatly reduce O&M time. 

    2. IEIT's unique intelligent regulating technology combined with an advanced air cooling system creates an optimum working environment to ensure the stable running of the server. 

    3. With the latest BMC, technicians can quickly locate components that have failed (or are failing) through the Web GUI, fault diagnosis LEDs and UID LEDs on the front panel, simplifying maintenance, speeding up troubleshooting, and enhancing system availability. 

    4. Technicians can monitor system parameters, get alarms in a timely manner, and take proper actions accordingly to ensure stable running of the system and minimize system downtime.
