Inspur announced the new M5 series servers to get businesses ready for the new era of intelligent computing


12 Jul 2017 Beijing - Along with Intel's release of its latest generation of Xeon scalable processer family, Inspur officially launched its new generation of M5 series server platforms, providing the next generation of IT technology that propels businesses to reach their unique business goals faster.

Inspur understands the IT needs of businesses and build on its years of experience to deliver a broad portfolio of innovative products, services and solutions to help businesses succeed and compete in the market place. The new M5 series family focus on meeting the needs of Cloud computing, Big Data and deep learning applications, and all 35 products are designed for businesses to get ready to enter into the intelligent computing era.

The new M5 series family, designed based on different deployment and application scenarios, includes 4 major product groups, 35 products, for Cloud computing, Big Data, AI to provide customers with excellent and more robust computing performance as well as reliable and efficient business protection.

General Purpose Series Servers and Enterprise Series Servers are designed to meet the requirements of demanding business applications. Besides, enhanced RASUM - Reliability, Availability, Serviceability, Usability and Manageability - features are integrated to provide ERP, CRM and other traditional enterprise applications with strong, reliable and flexible supportive platforms. For example, the NF5280M5 is a 2U server that has the scalability of 56 physical cores, 24 memory slots and 10 standard PCI-E interfaces. It can be configured for more than 30 various application solutions, covering 5 key application scenarios including general purpose computing and heterogeneous computing.

Inspur's new M5 Application Optimized Series Server meet the needs for computing-intensive applications and data-rich applications. In this group, some servers are designed for Cloud data centres which require high-density, energy efficiency and ease of maintenance to lower TCO. And some are designed to manage Big Data, deep learning and other emerging data-rich applications. All these servers break through the bottlenecks of technical platform restrictions in storage, heterogeneous scalability and other aspects, and provide physical storage capacity and heterogeneous computing power far better than general products. For example, the NF5288M5, a purpose-built deep learning server, supports the deployment of 8 GPUs in a 2U form factor and offers superb performance for extreme AI computing and HPC mission.

Converged Architecture Product series is the next generation data centre modular solution, and consists of multiple-star servers, blade servers, cabinet servers and other forms. The physical indicators, including product performance density, storage density and energy efficiency, as well as the scalability of computing, storage, I/O and other various resources are far superior to traditional servers.

Inspur is committed to providing state-of-the-art and end-to-end product design. For example, the storage server NF5486M5 is in a 4U form factor with a maximum configuration of 100 3.5-inch hard disks. It is the industry's highest density storage server with storage density of up to 25 PB per U, saving 60% of the data centre storage space compared with general purpose storage server. Inspur integrates a high-precision airflow deployment technology to ensure the system is working normally when all 100 3.5-inch hard disks are running at the same time.

Flexibility, intelligence and openness are key considerations in Inspur's product design. For example, Inspur IncloudRack and I9000 both support 2-socket, 4-socket and 8-socket nodes, as well as I/O, PC-E scalability module, and can be configured for a dozen of business application platforms including enterprise private Cloud, deep learning, public Cloud and transaction processing. Ease of management and maintenance is another key differentiator of Inspur's server products. The new M5 series family is equipped with multi-dimensional automatic management solution, and supports OpenBMC and Redfish, the two standard management API interfaces.

Inspur M5 platform focus on open, supports OpenBMC and Redfish, the two standard management API interfaces, Inspur also participates in all Open Data Center Projects, which include OCP, OCS, ODCC, Open19. The new M5 series family offers a complete line of open platform product solutions, including 5 major solution platforms, Scorpio cabinet, 4U multi-star, OCP cabinet, OCS cabinet and Open19 cabinet, as well as 17 scalability nodes, covering three open standards.
