Hybrid Computing with scalable expansion capability The ASUS ESC4000/FDR G2 is the latest high-density GPU server based on the dual Intel® Xeon® E5-2600 processor platform, featuring eight hot-swappable 3.5” SATA HDD cages, a 1+1 80+ Platinum 1620W redundant power supply and nine PCI-E Gen3 x16 expansion slots. It delivers high density computing power, scalable expansion capability, high speed interconnection and an intelligent thermal solution, all in a green design, making it an ideal choice for applications in the HPC field of life and medical science, engineering science, financial modeling and virtualization. Shop Modal header High density 2U hybrid HPC computing power 8+1 Flexible Expansion SlotsThe ESC4000/FDR G2 supports up to eight PCI-E Gen3 x16 slots for high expandability, compatible with versatile expansion cards. In addition, there is an optional riser for a low profile/half-length card and PIKE solution. Intelligent System Fan Control II FunctionTo improve heat-dispersion and a stable computing environment, independent smart fans provide cooling for each area of the GPU and CPU, and a dual-fan design for GPU cards provides an extra thermal back-up solution. 1+1 Redundant PSU (1620W 80+ Platinum)The ESC4000/FDR G2 is equipped with a 1+1 1620W 80+ Platinum level redundant power supply with power efficiency up to 94% for energy savings, while the hot swappable design reduces power loss, improves power efficiency and saves more TCO for users. Onboard InfiniBand™ FDR for Hyper InterconnectionWith an Inifniband™ FDR solution onboard, users can achieve low latency and high bandwidth connectivity for enterprise data centers, along with cloud computing, high performance computing and embedded environments,, all with a data transmission rate up to 56Gbps. Comprehensive RAID SolutionsThe ESC4000/FDR G2 supports the optional ASUS RAID PIKE upgrade kit. With only a PIKE riser card and a PIKE card, upgrade the server from a SATA to SAS based storage system by re-connecting the cable from the onboard SATA to a PIKE riser SAS port. Users now have flexible choices for multiple storage options! Complete Server Remote Management SolutionBy installing an optional Web GUI ASMB6-iKVM module, users can have full control of the server with an out-of-band server-based management (IPMI 2.0 standard) and 24x7 real-time remote monitor. Meanwhile, ASWM Enterprise software provides one-to-multiple centralized management including BIOS flash, remote control, power control and asset management through a user-friendly interface. Users can utilize an effective tool with a user-friendly interface to control the servers remotely. Cutting-edge ArchitectureThe ESC4000/FDR G2 supports dual CPUs from the Intel® Xeon® E5-2600 processor family and with 16 DIMM sockets onboard; up to 512GB of four-channel DDR3 1600/1333 memory is supported. Combined, they provide for a high computing capability that can tackle the most difficult of tasks. Additionally, there are more PCI-E lanes with PCI-E Gen 3 support, which is suitable for systems that require high I/O connectivity and bandwidth and supports more PCI-E devices.
