The Inspur InCloud 3000 integrates compute, storage, networking, preconfigured virtualization resources and a cloud management platform. As a modular solution, it not only supports half-width compute node, full-width 4-8 socket nodes stack, PCIe extension node and storage extension node, but also integrates scale-out and scale-up technologies to provide the residence and flexibility enterprise datacenters need. The InCloud 3000 has 47% higher density compared to 1U rack-mounted server solutions. Its combined power supply and cooling system reduces power consumption by 15%.
The InCloud 3000 is based on Inspur’s SmartRack, a rack scale converged solution that has been widely adopted by world’s leading internet and e-commerce giants – including Baidu, Alibaba and Tencent.
The InCloud 3000 utilizes VMware Virtual SAN,and is preconfigured with the new Inspur InCloud OS 4.5 and Quick Deployment Tools (QDT), resulting in a deployment speed that is ten times faster than traditional solutions.

With QDT, 4,800 virtual machines or 12,480 virtual desktops can be deployed within two hours. The InCloud 3000 includes a preconfigured InCloud Manager, providing comprehensive features – including resource, operation and domain management, performance and service status monitoring, workflow, metering and billing, and self-service.
