Component

Function

1

Rear hard disk module

Supported configurations:

  • Two 2.5-inch hard disk slots
  • Two 3.5-inch hard disk slots

2

I/O module

Supported configurations:

  • One full-height full-length standard PCIe 3.0 x16 slot (bandwidth: PCIe 3.0 x8), one full-height full-length standard PCIe 3.0 x8 slot, and one full-height half-length standard PCIe 3.0 x8 slot
  • Two standard full-height full-length PCIe 3.0 x16 slots (bandwidth of one of them: PCIe 3.0 x8)
  • Two 2.5-inch hard disk slots
  • Two 3.5-inch hard disk slots
NOTE:

PCIe slot signals on I/O module are from CPU 2. In single-CPU configuration, I/O module 2 does not support a standard PCIe card.

3

PSU

Two AC or DC hot-swappable PSUs in 1+1 redundancy mode based on the input power:

  • AC PSUs: 110 V or 220 V
  • DC PSUs: –48 V
  • High-voltage (HV) DC PSUs: 240 V or 380 V
NOTE:

The PSUs provide short-circuit protection. The PSUs that support dual input live wires provide double-pole fuses.

4

Flexible NIC

Supported flexible NIC configurations:

  • One GE flexible NIC with two or four GE ports
  • One 10GE flexible NIC with two 10GE electrical ports
NOTE:

Both flexible NICs support the Network Controller Sideband Interface (NC-SI).

To query the flexible NICs supported by the 5288 V3, use the Huawei Server Compatibility Checker.

PCIe card on the mainboard

Two half-height half-length PCIe 3.0 x8 slots for standard PCIe cards

6

SD card

SD cards use flash memory and SPIs to store data. Currently, NAND flash memory is mostly used in the industry. NAND flash memory stores electrons on the floating gate to store data. However, electrons frequently passing through the floating gate will weaken the gate's ability to store electrons and eventually make the gate unable to store electrons. This problem is common to NAND flash memory. The amount of service data to be written needs to be assessed to prevent component failures.

NOTE:
  • An SD card can be used only as a boot device for OSs.
  • SD cards have weak endurance and cannot be used as data storage devices. Use enterprise-level HDDs or SSDs to replace SD cards for data storage when frequent data erase operations are involved.
  • Installing write-intensive service software on SD cards will accelerate the write life consumption and result in perpetual damage of SD cards. SD cards cannot be used for such services.
  • SD cards cannot be used in cache scenarios.

7

Dual-SD card module

Provides two SD card slots. Each slot supports an SD card of up to 32 GB. SD cards can be used as the boot media of the server. After the iBMC initialization is complete, two SD cards are configured as a RAID 1 array when being detected. You can view the information about the SD cards and RAID 1 array on the iBMC WebUI by choosing System Info > Other, but cannot modify the configuration or manually configure them.

8

RAID controller card

Supported RAID controller cards:

  • SR120:
    • Uses the LSI SAS2308 chip.
    • Supports RAID 0, 1, 10, and 1E.
  • SR130:
    • Uses the LSI SAS3008 chip.
    • Supports RAID 0, 1, 10, and 1E.
  • SR430C:
    • Uses the LSI SAS3108 chip.
    • Supports RAID 0, 1, 10, 5, 50, 6, and 60.
    • Supports a supercapacitor for power failure protection.
    • Supports a maximum of 32 hard disks.
    • Supports a cache of 1 GB or 2 GB.
  • SR630C:
    • Uses the LSI SAS3108 chip.
    • Supports RAID 0, 1, 10, 5, 50, 6, and 60.
    • Supports a supercapacitor for power failure protection.
    • Supports 40 hard disks.
    • Supports a cache of 1 GB or 2 GB.

These RAID controller cards support RAID level migration and drive roaming.

NOTE:

When you configure dual SAS adapters or SAS RAID controller cards for the server, one of them must be a standard PCIe SAS adapter or SAS RAID controller card.

9

TPM (optional)

  • Complies with the Trusted Computing Group (TCG) standards.
  • Protects the platform from viruses or unauthorized operations.

10

DIMMs

  • Up to 16 DDR4 RDIMMs or LRDIMMs, which provide a maximum memory capacity of 2048 GB.
  • Capacity per DIMM: 8 GB, 16 GB, 32 GB, 64 GB, or 128 GB.
  • Memory speed: DDR4 1866 MT/s, 2133 MT/s, or 2400 MT/s

11

Heat sink

Dissipates heat from a CPU.

Each CPU is configured with one heat sink.

12

CPU

Processes data.

To provide powerful data processing functions, the server has CPUs integrated with memory controllers and PCIe controllers. The server supports the following CPU configurations:

  • Intel® Haswell-EP® E5-2600 v3 series 4-core, 6-core, 8-core, 10-core, 12-core, 14-core, and 16-core CPUs with a maximum thermal design power (TDP) of 135 W
  • Intel® Broadwell-EP® E5-2600 v4 series 4-core, 6-core, 8-core, 10-core, 12-core, 14-core, 16-core, 18-core, and 20-core CPUs with a maximum TDP of 135 W

13

Mainboard

Provides CPU sockets, DIMM slots, and PCIe slots, and integrates basic components such as the BIOS chip and Platform Controller Hub (PCH) chip (C612).

Integrates the SM750 display chip and provides 32 MB display memory. The maximum resolution is 1920 pixels x 1200 pixels at 60 Hz with 16 M colors.

NOTE:
  • After a dedicated graphics card driver is installed, only Windows Server 2012, Windows Server 2012 R2, Windows Server 2016 can support the resolution of 1920 pixels x 1200 pixels while other OSs only support the maximum resolution supported by the built-in drivers.
  • If the resolution is greater than 1024 x 768, the display effect may be affected.

14

PSU backplane

Connects PSUs to the mainboard.

15

SATADOM

A quick memory storage media unit that features high energy efficiency and stability. It is a SATA SSD or SATADOM electrical hard disk.

SATADOMs use flash memory to store data. Currently, NAND flash memory is mostly used in the industry. NAND flash memory stores electrons on the floating gate to store data. However, electrons frequently passing through the floating gate will weaken the gate's ability to store electrons and eventually make the gate unable to store electrons. This problem is common to NAND flash memory. The amount of service data to be written needs to be assessed to prevent component failures.

NOTE:
  • If the SoftRAID function is enabled on the server, the STATADOM supports SoftRAID, which supports RAID 0 and RAID 1.
  • A SATADOM can be used only as a boot disk for Linux OSs.
  • SATADOMs have weak endurance and cannot be used as data storage devices. Use enterprise-level HDDs or SSDs to replace SATADOMs for data storage when frequent data erase operations are involved.
  • Installing write-intensive service software on SATADOMs will accelerate the write life consumption and result in perpetual damage of SATADOMs. SATADOMs cannot be used for such services.
  • SATADOMs cannot be used in cache scenarios.
  • The 5288 V3 supports two SATADOMs. The mappings between the physical positions and the port numbers in the BIOS are as follows: SATA1 – PORT4; SATA2 – PORT5.

16

Secures a supercapacitor for a RAID controller card.

23
