FusionServer 2488 V5 Rack Server

The FusionServer 2488 V5 is Huawei’s latest 2U, 4-socket rack server. It offers an ideal choice for compute-intensive scenarios such as cloud computing virtualization, High-Performance Computing (HPC), and databases. One FusionServer 2488 V5 delivers up to 36% higher performance and about 32% lower OPEX* than two traditional 2U, 2-socket rack servers.
