Flexible Configuration

  • The basic 4U architecture incorporates blade server advantages, allowing you to configure single-slot, dual-slot or four-slot server nodes.
  • The X6800 supports flexible configuration, including configuration of pure compute nodes, configuration of GPU acceleration nodes, and mixed configuration of compute and storage nodes.

High Computing Density

  • The X6800 provides computing density twice that of a conventional 1U rack server and four times that of a conventional 2U rack server in a rack, which improves space utilization in equipment rooms.
  • The X6800 provides twice storage density of a conventional 1U rack server in a rack. If each X6800 server is configured with four CPUs, a cabinet supports 480 3.5-inch hard disks in full configuration.
  • A cabinet supports a maximum of 40 dual-slot storage server nodes, 80 processors, and 80 TB memory capacity.

Simplified Management and Easy Maintenance

  • The X6800 uses the integrated baseboard management controller (iBMC) and Hyper management module (HMM) to implement unified management. By incorporating advantages of rack and blade servers, the X6800 allows nodes to be maintained from the front of the cabinet and supports both front and rear cabling. This meets deployment requirements of traditional equipment rooms (requiring rear cabling) and new equipment rooms (requiring front cabling) and facilitates maintenance of the cool wind area.
  • The X6800 adopts a modular design and supports hot-swappable components, greatly increasing O&M efficiency.

Shared Architecture and High Energy Efficiency

  • The server nodes share four PSUs and five fan modules, which simplifies deployment and increases PSU and fan module utilization.
  • The X6800 uses Huawei Dynamic Energy Management Technology (DEMT) to control system energy consumption, which maximizes the energy efficiency.

Redundancy and Reliability

  • The X6800 uses a passive backplane to protect the system from single point of failures (SPOFs), delivering higher reliability and security than an active backplane.
  • The X6800 supports redundant fan modules and PSUs and RAID configuration, preventing data loss and service interruption.
  • The X6800 uses carrier-class components and manufacturing processes to provide higher stability and longer lifecycle.
