Inspur NF3180A6

High-density, cost-effective 1U rack server


Inspur server NF3180A6 is a 1U1S rack server designed based on the 3rd GEN AMD EPYCTM Milan Processors. NF3180A6 features multiple cores, high base frequency and flexible expansion, and delivers the best performance in 1U space. It is a high-density and cost-effective rack server launched by Inspur to meet the needs of Internet, cloud computing and enterprise market applications. It is ideal for many fields such as Internet, cloud computing virtualization, small and medium-sized enterprises.

Powerful Performance

  • NF3180A6 is built on the new generation AMD Milan Processors. Each CPU has up to 64 cores and 128 threads with a 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.
  • 4 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 10 hot-swap NVMe SSDs, providing the high input/output operations per second (IOPS) ten times better than that of high-end enterprise-level SATA SSDs, with the storage capacity increased by 20% compared to the previous generation.
  • An all-flash configuration of up to 32 hot-swap E1.S SSDs that inherit the advantages of traditional NVMe SSDs with a high IOPS and features a small footprint, implementing massive storage in 1U space and providing 3.2 times better overall IOPS performance.

Flexible Expansion

  • Up to 10 × 2.5" SAS/SATA/NVMe drives at the front or 32 E1.S SSDs at the front.
  • Optional OCP NIC 3.0 module with multiple network port options (1/10/25/40/100 Gbps), delivering a more flexible network architecture to applications.
  • Up to 3 standard PCIe 4.0 expansion slots (3 × PCIe x16) and customizable PCIe layouts are supported to meet different customer needs.
  • 2 onboard SATA M.2 SSDs or 2 built-in PCIe X4 M.2 SSDs supportable.

High Availability

  • With a user-friendly design, the entire system supports tool-free maintenance. The enhanced and optimized structures realize easy assembly/disassembly and greatly reduce O&M time.
  • Inspur's unique intelligent regulating technology combined with a cutting-edge air-cooling system creates an optimum working environment to ensure server health.
  • The drives are hot-swappable. The RAID controller card supports RAID 0/1/10/5/6/60/1E, RAID cache and data protection in case of power failure enabled by the super capacitor.
  • 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.
  • 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.
