NF3280A6

Scalable high performance 2U AMD EPYC™ server

Inspur NF3280A6 is a 2U 1-socket rack server designed based on the 3rd GEN AMD EPYC™ 7003 Series processors. With multiple cores, high base frequency and flexible expansion, NF3280A6 maximizes the performance of a single processor, making it comparable to the traditional dual-socket servers. It is designed for the needs of Internet, cloud computing, virtualization and big data and serves best in many scenarios such as Internet, high performance computing and cloud computing.

Key Features

Latest single socket AMD EPYC 3rd Gen 7003 series Processor

Up to 280W CPU

Accelerate performance and lower latency

Up to 24x NVME SSD

Large local storage capacity

Up to 360 TB (20x LFF)*

High Performance

Each processor supports up to 64 cores and 128 threads at the maximum Turbo frequency of 3.4 GHz and up to 280 W thermal design power (TDP). PCIe 4.0 ports support up to 128 lanes.

16 DDR4 ECC memory modules (RDIMM and LRDIMM) are supported with its data transfer rate up to 3200 MT/s under 1 DPC and 2933 MT/s under 2 DPC. The memory modules each have a maximum capacity of 128 GB, offering a total maximum capacity of 2 TB with high speed and superior availability.

8 NVDIMMs are supported to ensure memory data integrity in case of power failure without compromising on the memory capacity and bandwidth.

An all-flash configuration of up to 24 hot-swap NVMe SSDs provides ten times the IOPS of high-end enterprise-level SATA SSDs, with a 20% increase in storage capacity over the previous generation.


Flexible Expansion

Front: up to 12 × 3.5″ SAS/SATA/NVMe drive or 24 × 2.5″ SAS/SATA/NVMe drive

Internal: up to 2 × M.2 SATA/PCIe SSD or 4 × 3.5″ SAS/SATA drive

Rear: up to 2 × 3.5″ SAS/SATA drive or 4 × 2.5″ SAS/SATA/NVMe drive

Optional OCP NIC 3.0 SFF expansion card

6 onboard Slimline x8 connectors to directly attach NVMe drives to CPU

Up to 6 standard PCle expansion slots, including 2 full-height and half-length x16 slots + 4 full-height and half-length x8 slots; 3 full-height and half-length PCIe x16 slots + 2 full-height and half-length PCIe x8 Gen4 slots


Smart Management

Serviceability: the system supports tool-free maintenance using optimized component designs for easy assembly/disassembly, greatly reducing O&M time.

Temperature Regulation: Inspur’s unique intelligent regulating technology combined with an advanced air cooling system creates an optimum working environment to ensure server health.

Rapid Response: 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.

Minimal Downtime: Technicians can monitor system parameters and take appropriate actions in a timely manner via the alarms sent in advance via BMC to ensure system health and minimize system downtime.
