Flexible Configurations for Enterprise Storage and High Performance GPU Applications

Inspur NF5280M4 can be configured with 25 hot-plug 2.5” bays with expander backplane, or 24 hot-plug 2.5” bays with Direct Attached Backplane, or 12 hot-plug 3.5” bays for SATA/SAS HDDs or SSDs; all configurations have option to add up to 4 hot plug 2.5” bays in the back of the system, offering the flexibility to customize for disk performance or greater storage capacity. NF5280M4 can also be configured with 2 GPU cards optimized for financial modeling, oil and gas, life science, automotive rendering and supercomputing applications. Flexibility of the server design provides one platform for multiple applications for the best investment.

Complete Tool-less Design, Superior Workmanship, Energy Efficient Design

Inspur NF5280M4 has a completely tool-less and modular design with great attention to quality and detail. The entire server can be built without using tools: All components in the system including the motherboard, backplanes, fans, add on cards can be installed without using tools for easy maintenance. The chassis has smooth edges throughout. The drive trays for the 3.5” bays have mounting holes for installing 2.5” drives, allowing the server to be configured with a combination of 3.5” disks as well as 2.5” SSDs for applications that need both storage capacity and high IO throughput. Platinum and titanium level power supply options are available, supporting PMBUS and Intel’s latest NM3.0 technology. Inspur thermal design optimizes air flow control using the latest PID technology to effectively dissipate heat, control and reduce system noise, which significantly increases product durability and reliability and significantly reduce system power consumption.
