FusionServer 2488H V6 2U 4-Socket Rack Server


FusionServer 2488H V6 is the lastest 2U, 4-socket (4S) rack server, ideal for computing-intensive scenarios such as cloud computing, virtualization, high-performance computing (HPC), database, and SAP HANA. In virtualization scenarios, the OPEX of one FusionServer 2488H V6 is lower than that of two 2U, 2S rack servers. The 2488H V6 houses four 3rd Gen Intel® Xeon® Scalable processors in a 2U space, and supports 48 DDR4 DIMMs, 11 PCIe slots, and up to 25 x 2.5'' drives for local storage. It incorporates patented technologies, such as Dynamic Energy Management Technology (DEMT) and Fault Diagnosis & Management (FDM), and can be configured with FusionDirector software for entire-lifecycle management, helping drive down OPEX and improve ROI.
