4U 4/8-Node High Compute Density Server

Key Features:

  • 2 configurations: 4-node and 8-node
  • Hybrid deployment of computational and storage node types
  • Stable and reliable with fully redundant design
  • Scale on demand with 4 PCIe expansion cards and 8 PCIe 3.0 x16 expansion slots


The i48 delivers industry-leading computing density and flexibility. It can be deployed in a 4U chassis with 8 different types of dual-computing nodes to meet computing, PCIe expansion, storage and other requirements. It supports 100 Gbps EDR/OPA network interfaces. Applicable to HPC compute nodes or parallel storage servers for integrated data center hybrid deployment.

Hybrid deployment

Offers a variety of computational node types including computational, balanced, and storage types. Management module and Ethernet switch module at chassis rear support hybrid deployment of multiple front-end nodes and multiple rear-end modules for an integrated delivery solution.

Stable and reliable

Fully redundant design, the chassis supports redundant management modules, power supplies, fans and ethernet switch modules.

Scale on demand

In addition to the front support of 4 PCIe expansion cards, the front of the chassis is also equipped with 8 PCIe 3.0 x16 expansion slots to meet various network and expansion card requirements.
