High-Density Compute


Versatile Cloud-Optimized 4-Socket Platform Pushes Boundaries in Density and Compute

The first high-density cloud-optimized four-socket platform for the CSP market jointly announced by Inspur and Intel at last year’s OCP Global Summit, the Inspur NF8260M5 delivers energy efficiency to enable the highest number of single rack cores while lowering TCO. This cloud optimized solution has been adopted by customers in hyperscale, Fintech Cloud, enterprise and other segments requiring high computing workloads.

SAP HANA Solution with Intel® Optane™

Based on the high-density 2U 4-socket Inspur NF8260M5 server, this solution is validated for the second-generation Intel Xeon Scalable processor, optimized with Intel Optane persistent memory, and certified for SAP HANA®.

The Inspur OCP Cloud Optimized Rack Solution for SAP HANA is a fully integrated rack solution combining OCP recognized hardware and validated software to provide database capacity that can be doubled for a lower price. Customers who have multiple SAP HANA older gen nodes, where memory capacity is the limiting factor, can upgrade multiple analytics nodes (scale out) into one consolidated analytics node (scale up) with more In Memory database capacity.

High-Density Compute to Support the Trusted Supply Chain 

Rack-Level Management

In order to meet the demands of customers for data center management, maintenance optimization and system design, the OpenRMC project was launched to help small and medium-sized data center customers greatly reduce their IT operation and maintenance costs, simplify software-based rack management and improve efficiency.

Inspur provides an OpenRMC compliant rack level hardware management infrastructure and rack level software management stack that includes web server service and client tools.
