ASUS PIKE II
& 12G SAS Integration
ASUS PIKE II offers the latest
12Gb/s SAS together with PCI-E 3.0 solution. While ASUS latest 12Gb/s SAS doubles
the data rate running at twice the speed of the previous generation, PCI-E 3.0
offers high reliability and faster speed connection. ASUS PIKE II meets user
needs with support for 6Gb/s SATA and 12Gb/s SAS storage and integrated RAID
data protection. Just placing the PIKE II card can immediately enlarge the
capacity, improve the performance, and strengthen the signaling, making it the
great upgrade option. Additionally, multiple HBAs allow multi-paths which
improve over performance.
2+2 expansion slots
RS700-E8-RS4 V2 has high expandability with one Full-high PCI Express 3.0
x16 slot (x16 link) and one Low-profile PCI Express 3.0 x8 slot (x8 link), plus
one proprietary PCI Express 3.0 x8 (x8 link) for the optional ASUS PIKE II card
and one PCI Express 3.0 x8 (x8 link) for mezzanine cards, such as the OCP
10Gbit/s LAN card. This flexible expansion offers diverse applications in
storage and networking to meeting the demands of future expansion and high
scalability in a 1U case.
Premium components for premium
RS700-E8-RS4 V2 benefits from premium components hand-chosen and carefully
arranged by ASUS engineers to provide premium efficiency. With ASUS Beat
Thermal Chokes, Dr. MOS and 1+1 80 PLUS 800W Platinum power supplies, it
delivers great durability and up to 94% power efficiency. The 1+1 power supply
design allows the server to keep working even if one power supply requires
maintenance, enabling uninterrupted operation. RS700-E8-RS4 V2 has durable 12k
solid capacitors that are able to withstand up to 12,000 hours of high ambient
temperatures. These 12K capacitors also boast lower equivalent series
resistance (ESR) for increased efficiency and minimal heat generation.
RS700-E8-RS4 V2 benefits from an exclusive tool-less rail kit design,
easing deployment for systems administrators for increased efficiency.
RS700-E8-RS4 V2 includes a front-side VGA port, so you’re able to connect a
display quickly and easily. The server also carries an asset tag for fast and
accurate identification within a cabinet. RS700-E8-RS4 V2 also offers great
freedom when it comes to the choice of operating system drive type and
placement, with M.2 slot available.
Complete Remote Server Management
With the Intelligent Platform Management Interface (IPMI) 2.0-compliant
ASMB8-iKVM module in RS700-E8-RS4 V2, you’ll be able to monitor, control and
manage the server remotely. ASUS Server Web-based Management (ASWM) Enterprise
has a simple and intuitive web-based graphical user interface. Save time and
effort by flashing the BIOS remotely, use the new screen-recording function for
quick and easy trouble-shooting and exploit the many efficiency benefits of
one-to-many centralized management afforded by ASWM Enterprise.
