Huawei's new FusionServer Pro 2298 V5, a 2U 2-socket storage rack server that provides up to 450 TB storage capacity, is launching tomorrow.
The FusionServer Pro 2298 V5 storage server is running on the Cascade Lake Refresh processor, the newest member of the Intel Xeon Scalable processor family, and supports the Intel Optane DC persistent memory (DCPMM). The Cascade Lake Refresh processor offers a base frequency up to 3.9 GHz with a 4.5 GHz turbo boost, a new height for Intel's Xeon lineup. It supports more cores and provides higher hyper-threading processing capabilities, delivering a performance that is 36% higher than its predecessors.
The FusionServer Pro 2298 V5 can house 24 3.5-inch and 4 2.5-inch drives, as well as 4 NVMe SSDs, in a 2U space, providing up to 450 TB storage capacity.
This storage server is tailored to a wide range of scenarios, such as the distributed storage, software-defined storage, big data analytics, video, data backup, archiving, and data-intensive warm and cold 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.
- 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.
The Huawei FusionServer 2298 V5 adopts an intelligent power management design and capitalizes on the power capping technology to offer improved deployment density. In addition, the Huawei-patented Dynamic Energy Management Technology (DEMT) automatically monitors resource usage based on service loads and dynamically adjusts the minimum power based on resource utilization for reliable server running.
