Use model HBx plus HCx or HDx plus HEx to form a 2-node scaled complex. MAX5 is not currently certified for use with SAP HANA and is therefore not supported About these models: In the x3850 X5, QPI links are used for interprocessor communication both in a single-node system and in a two-node system.
They are also used to connect the system to a MAX5 memory expansion unit.
The MAX5 adds 32 DIMM sockets for a total of 96 DIMMs.
