i24 Hyperconverged Platform

The future of data center servers.

In the next generation of data centers, density is king. Inspur’s i24 2U 4-node server is optimized for the needs of those data centers. In a compact 2U form factor it delivers winning efficiency, reliability and performance. Additionally, its scalability makes it ideal for virtualization infrastructures, HPC and cloud platforms.

High Density & Performance

The 2U enclosure supports 4x 2-socket half-width server nodes

Each node supports 2x Next Generation Intel® Xeon® Scalable processors, up to 16x 2666 MT/s DDR4 ECC and 1TB memory, and 2x NVDIMMs

High Availability

Supports up to 24x 2.5″ or 12x 3.5″ SAS/SATA HDD/SSDs for mass storage, and 24x hot-swap NVMe drives

2x built-in SATA M.2 for OS installation

Each node supports 3x PCI-E slots and multiple network interface options

High Reliability

Energy efficiency from an optimized PSU design lets an entire enclosure run on just 2x 2000W redundant power supplies

Intelligent fan control technology and advanced air-cooling system ensures stable system operation

Encrypted TPM security chip guarantees data and information system security

Easy Maintenance

Supports IPMI2.0 and Redfish and fulfills all management tasks including complete remote system monitoring, remote KVM, virtual media

CMC module provides unified management of power supplies and fans within the enclosure and access to the node monitoring information
