Rack-optimized Standard Serverboard
Front "Parallel-Balance" CPU and Memory DesignZ8NR-D12 is designed with front “Parallel-Balance” layout, with system fans cool down these two modules directly, the design also facilitates the smooth airflow of the system to get better thermal solution.
ASUS PIKE supportedWith the ASUS optional PIKE providing slim-sized and flexible storage options, direct SAS RAID upgrades can be achieved directly via a unique slot—without sacrificing expansion capability. The ASUS PIKE further provides customers with multiple I/O solutions and RAID functions.
ASUS Flex-E TechnologyThe ASUS Flex-E Technology provides the flexibility to auto-switch between 1 PCI-Ex16 link (Graphic supported) and 2 PCI-E x8 link (for I/O expansion), allowing customers to use PCI-E flexibly.
Optional ASMB4-iKVM Upgrade Kit for Easy TroubleshootingThe optional ASMB4-iKVM upgrade kit provides remote real-time full control access based on BIOS-level to the system by keyboard, video monitor and mouse (KVM over Ethernet) from any local computer anywhere, anytime.
High Quality Components for Greater System ReliabilityASUS is the first company to phase in 6-Phase CPU power, 3-Phase memory power and All Ultra Long Life Solid capacitors on serverboard in the market. These features not only provide the support for high-end 130W CPU, but also delivers highly efficient and reliable operations.
EPU for Extreme Energy Efficiency
With current trends leaning towards energy savings, the Z8NR-D12 is equipped with the ASUS exclusive EPU technology to provide power efficiency by detecting current loadings and intelligently moderating power in real-time to ensure the best power management.
Designed for Virtualization
There is an onboard vertical USB connector designed for VMWare ESXi, and can be fitted into 1U systems without requiring hard drives, reducing power consumption and cost for cooling for customers.
