In one of the more ambitious projects STH has undertaken, we have a Huawei TaiShan server to show you.

What makes this server more interesting than being banned in the US, is that the CPUs it uses are Arm server CPUs from Huawei/ HiSilicon.

Specifically, this is a Huawei/ HiSilicon Kunpeng 920 server that was one of the first Armv8 server CPUs with up to 64 cores and PCIe Gen4 support.

In terms of project status, this server has been very finicky, something we covered in the recent Solidigm D7-P5520 7.68TB PCIe Gen4 NVMe SSD Review on x86 Arm and Power9 piece.

So instead of a review at this point, we are going to approach this more to just document what we found and discuss what makes this banned server unique.

As we went through the hardware configuration, it was clear that this server was very different, and there was a ton to cover just looking at the hardware.

Starting with the front of the server, this is a 24-bay 2.5″ design.

In this server, eight slots are NVMe while the other slots are SATA/ SAS.

Huawei also uses drive blanks like Dell EMC, HPE, and Lenovo rather than just providing drive trays like Supermicro, Inspur, QCT, and others.

On the left side, we get the Huawei logo, power, and status LEDs/ LCD.

As exciting as that is, the more exciting aspect is really what we see inside the server.

Once we get inside, things get interesting.

Lenovo servers are probably a step above Huawei, then this Huawei server.
