HUAWEI XH620 V3 Server Node
White Paper
1 Overview
1
Overview
The XH620 V3 server node (XH620 V3 for short) is a dual-socket 4U8 compute server node
for X6800 servers. It provides high performance and storage density while breaking through
power limits. The XH620 V3 is easy to manage and maintain.
The XH620 V3 supports up to 16 double data rate 4 (DDR4) dual in-line memory modules
(DIMMs), and two standard PCIe cards. It provides high computing capability, large local
storage, and a variety of ports. It applies to data centers and cloud computing, big data, and
Internet applications.
The XH620 V3 provides three types of flexible configurations on the front panel:
l
Two Front 2.5-inch SATA or SAS HDDs or SSDs + One HHHL PCIe card.
l
Four Front 2.5-inch SATA or SAS HDDs or SSDs, or NVMe PCIe SSDs.
l
Two Build-in 3.5-inch Non-Hot-Swap SATA HDDs.

SSDs offer better reliability than HDDs, prolonging system uptime.
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 XH620 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 XH620 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

An XH620 V3 can be configured with up to two Intel® Xeon® E5-2600 v3 or Intel® Xeon®
E5-2600 v4 processors or only one Intel® Xeon E5-1600 v3 processor.
l
If two processors are required, use the same type of processors.
l
If only one processor is required, install it in socket CPU1, as shown in Figure 14-1.
l
If E5-16XX V3 processors are configured, the four front 2.5" hard disks cannot be
configured and the operating temperature range is 5°C (41°F) to 35°C (95°F).

14 Component Compatibility
The XH620 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 XH620 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 14-1.
