Cloud-optimized high-density computing platform delivering advanced performance for cloud applications and virtual machines.

Advanced 4-socket design for cloud and VMs.

NF8260M6 is powered by four 3rd Generation Intel Xeon Scalable processors each with 12 DIMMs in a compact 2U form factor, offering high-density performance and Intel Optane PMem 200 memory in several flexible configurations for a variety of cloud computing and data-intensive applications.

Compute Density

• 2U 4-socket design doubles space efficiency and rack utilization vs 4U 4-socket

Reliable Performance

• BMC/BIOS Dual chip redundancy
• Multiple RAS and security features

Flexible Scalability

• Multiple storage configurations in 2U with 25/24 drive design and 24 NVMe all-flash
• 12 PCIe 3.0 slots increase expansion capacity by 50%
• 6 onboard vertical slots eliminates need for a riser, lowering capex
• FPGA and Intelligent Network Card Adaptation

4-Socket Design Optimized for Cloud Applications

  • 4-socket design enables double the virtual machine connections and higher virtualization integration ratio compared to previous 2-socket iteration
  • More VMs are integrated on a single physical machine, and information can be exchanged directly through UPI, effectively reducing virtual access latency and increasing access bandwidth
  • Reduces Capex by ~13%, TCO by ~7%
