Overview
The XH628 V3 server node (XH628 V3 for short) is a 4 U storage node designed for the
X6800 to provide high performance and storage density while maintaining high energy
efficiency. An X6800 chassis can hold a maximum of four XH628 V3 server nodes. The
XH628 V3 is easy to manage and maintain.
The XH628 V3 provides up to twelve 3.5" or 2.5" high-speed hard disks through an HDD
drawer. It provides up to 16 DDR4 DIMMs and four PCIe cards. It is ideal for data center,
cloud computing, big data, and Internet applications.
The XH628 V3 supports either of the following configurations:
l
Two front 2.5" SATA HHDs or SSDs
l
Two standard half-height half-length (HHHL) PCIe cards

Mainboard
As the most important component of the server, the mainboard
uses the Grantley platform, integrates basic components,
including the BIOS chip, Platform Controller Hub (PCH)
chip, and expansion slots, and provides processor sockets,
DIMM slots, and slots for installing other components.
The PCH uses the Intel® Wellsburg as the server node
chipset.
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
If a resolution higher than 1280 x 1024 is required, you need to install
dedicated graphics card driver.

l
The XH628 V3 supports up to two Intel® Xeon® E5-2600 v3 or Intel® Xeon® E5-2600
v4 processors (CPUs) and 16 DIMMs.
l
CPUs interconnect with each other over QuickPath Interconnect (QPI) buses, which
provide the maximum speed of 9.6 GT/s.
l
CPUs interconnect with the platform controller hub (PCH) over the Direct Media
Interface Generation 2 (DMI2) bus with a transmission rate of 5 GT/s.
l
CPUs interconnect with mezzanine cards and standard cards through PCIe slots to
provide service ports.
l
As the PCH, the Wellsburg chipset is an Intel southbridge chipset that provides external
I/O ports and bus expansion for the server platform.
l
The BMC chipset interconnects with the PCH through PCIe slots and LPC buses to
provide a management port.
l
A RAID controller card is combined with a 12-disk backplane to form a storage module,
which interconnects with CPUs over PCIe slots.
l
The BMC integrates video card, video compression, and virtual media functions and
provides device management functions, such as controlling server node power, querying
server node slot information, monitoring power supply status, and accessing server nodes
through KVM over IP.

maximum of 2048 GB memory capacity. The maximum theoretical memory bandwidth
is 153.6 GB/s, ensuring high speed. The LRDIMMs adopt error checking and correcting
(ECC) technology, ensuring high availability.
l
Intel Turbo Boost Technology 2.0 allows processor cores to run faster than thermal
design power (TDP) configuration specified frequency if they are operating below
power, current, and temperature specification limits.
l
Intel hyper-threading technology enables each processor core to run up to two threads,
improving parallel computing capacity.
l
The hardware-assisted Intel Virtualization Technology (Intel VT) allows OS vendors to
better use hardware to address virtualized workloads.
l
Integrated with the Intel Advanced Vector Extensions 2.0 (AVX 2.0) instruction set, the
XH628 V3 improves floating-point computing performance for compute-intensive
applications.

Availability and Serviceability
The XH628 V3 provides the following features to improve availability and serviceability:
l
The XH628 V3 uses carrier-class components and follows the engineering process to
dramatically improve system reliability.
l
The XH628 V3 provides twelve 2.5" or 3.5" hot-swappable hard disks. It supports RAID
0, 1, 1E, 5, 6, 10, 50, and 60, depending on the RAID controller card used. It provides a
RAID cache. A supercapacitor is used to protect RAID cache data from power failures.
l

l
The Huawei iBMC monitors system parameters in real time, triggers alarms, and
performs recovery actions in case of failures. This minimizes system downtime.
l
For XH628 V3 nodes used in China, Huawei provides a three-year warranty for parts
replacement and limited onsite repair, as well as a 9-hour-a-day, 5-day-a-week Next
Business Day (NBD) support program with optional service upgrades.
l
For XH628 V3 nodes used outside China, Huawei provides a three-year warranty for
parts replacement and repair, as well as a 9-hour-a-day, 5-day-a-week NBD support
program. Huawei delivers the repaired or new parts within 45 calendar days after
receiving the defective parts.

l
The built-in management module iBMC monitors server operating status and provides
remote management.
l
The integrated industry-standard Unified Extensible Firmware Interface (UEFI)
increases setup, configuration, and update efficiency, and simplifies fault handling.
l
The optional TPM 1.2/2.0 provides advanced encryption functions, including digital
signatures and remote authentication.
l
The Intel Advanced Encryption Standard–New Instruction (AES NI) supports faster and
stronger encryption.
l
The Intel Execute Disable Bit (EDB) function prevents certain types of malicious buffer
overflow attacks when working with a supported OS.
l
The network controller sideband interface (NC-SI) feature supports multiplexing of
management and service network ports, maximizing return on investment (ROI).
l
NC-SI can be enabled or disabled using iBMC or the basic input/output system (BIOS).
NC-SI is disabled by default.
NOTE
The service network port supporting NC-SI has the following features:
l The service network port can be bound to the network port (NIC mezz) on the onboard NIC of the
server or any network port (NIC network port 1 by default) of the rear NIC.
l The service network port allows you to enable, disable, and configure a virtual local area network
(VLAN) ID. A VLAN ID is disabled by default. The default VLAN ID is 0.
l The service network port supports IPv4 and IPv6 addresses. You can set an IP address, subnet mask,
default gateway, and IPv6 address prefix length for the service network port.

The XH628 V3 supports a maximum of eight DIMMs if one processor is installed and
supports a maximum of 16 DIMMs if two processors are installed. Each processor comes
with four memory channels.
Observe the following rules when configuring DIMMs:
1.
The XH628 V3 does not support mixed use of different types of DIMMs. Use either
RDIMMs or LRDIMMs.
2.
Each memory channel supports a maximum of eight ranks.
NOTE
A memory channel supports more than eight ranks for LRDIMMs and the number of ranks is
counted based on the number of ranks of the external ports. The DIMMs in the Compatibility List
support all memory channels in full configuration.
3.
All DIMMs in a server operate at the same speed, which is determined as the lowest
value of:
l
Memory speed supported by a specified processor
l
Memory speed supported by a specified DIMM
l
For the maximum operating speed for the specific memory configuration, see
"Maximum Operating Speed" in Table 10-1.
