The Most Cost Effective UP Appliance Server Solution
Up-to-date LGA1155 Socket Platform for Outstanding Performance
P8B-C/SAS/4L supports wide-range CPUs to cover different levels of market segment including Intel® Xeon® E3-1200 processor family, Intel® CoreTM i3-2100 Processor Family, and Intel® CoreTM G8x0/G6x0 Processor Family. The new platform architecture use a LGA1155 package with memory and PCI Express controllers integrated to support dual-channel DDR3 ECC memory and 20 PCI Express 2.0 lanes. The support of ECC (Error Correcting Code) memory improves data integrity to offer higher reliability. Provision of more PCI Express 2.0 lanes benefits various server applications. Most important, the motherboard provides significant performance improvement around 25% over previous generation.
Up-to-date Storage Technology
P8B-C/SAS/4L is built with Intel® C204 chipset which natively supports latest Serial ATA (SATA) 6G interface, and supports 6 SAS 6G ports from LSI SAS2008. It provides up to 6.0 Gb/s bandwidth, which doubles than previous SATA 3Gb/s interface. With better protocol and electrical characteristic, user can benefit from this new interface by better I/O performance. P8B-C/SAS/4L provides the best C/P ratio for the storage server solution.
Design to Support Legacy PCI Device Applications
With the technology rolling to PCI express technology, still many applications require PCI applications, P8B-C/SAS/4L provides up to 5 PCI expansion slots to meet various customer requirements. Customers can move their existing legacy PCI add-on cards to P8B-C/SAS/4L, benefit from up-to-date Intel Core i CPU and DDR3 memory technology to their solutions without new PCI express cards investment.
Quad Intel Server Class GbE, IPv6 Support Ready
Loaded with Intel server-class GbE controller makes P8B-C/SAS/4L to be the best candidate for Ethernet appliance application. With the fast explode of internet traffic, the P8B-C/SAS/4L equipped Intel® GbE LAN controllers with IPv6 support and backward compatible with IPv4 protocol. With IPv6 ready support, customer can deploy new systems seamlessly work with existing Ethernet environment. With teaming function, not only doubles the bandwidth compared to most dual LAN servers but supports Fault Tolerance technology. Also, the Load Balance handles network traffics delicately which is good at enhancing network functionality.
Wide Range OS Support
The P8B-C/SAS/4L supports wide-range mainstream server and client OS, including Windows 2008 R2, Windows 7, Cent OS, redhat, SuSE Linux and so on to meet the demand of different customers.
UEFI BIOS support
To meet the trend of large capacity hard disk drive, P8B-C/SAS/4L equips UEFI BIOS. The UEFI BIOS supports the latest GPT (GUID Partition Table) partition format and backward compatible with legacy MBR (Master Boot Record) partition format, users can easily and flexibly manage very large capacity hard disk drive or partition, ex: single hard disk or single partition larger than 2.2TB.
