Huawei‘s new next-gen FusionServer Pro 2298 V5 is designed to resolve the problems of low storage capacity and limited room space. It runs on the Cascade Lake Refresh processor, the newest member of the Intel Xeon Scalable processor family, and the server supports the Intel Optane DC persistent memory (DCPMM). Huawei’s latest storage server can house 24 3.5-inch and 4 2.5-inch drives, as well as 4 NVMe SSDs.
The FusionServer 2298 V5 features:
- Ultra-large storage: Supports various drive configurations and provides elastic storage capacity, meeting upgrade requirements at different storage capacity levels. Supports SATA/SAS SSDs or PCIe NVMe SSDs as the cache, improving drive read/write performance.
- High I/O expandability: Provides diverse network ports, such as four PCIe 3.0 slots, two 10GE and two GE LOM ports, as well as one OCP mezzanine card 2.0.
- System acceleration: Supports two SATA M.2 SSDs for independent OS installation and high-speed startup. The two M.2 SSDs provide capacity options of 32, 64, 240, and 480 GB, and support hot-swap and hardware RAID. All these features ensure the OS high reliability.
Huawei FusionServer 2298 V5 adopts an intelligent power management design and capitalizes on the power capping technology to help customers improve deployment density. Its resource usage is automatically monitored by Huawei-patented Dynamic Energy Management Technology (DEMT) based on service loads and dynamically adjusts the minimum power based on resource utilization.
