High Performance 1U Storage Server
Front Parallel CPU Design features better cooling
The ASUS RS700-E7/RS8 is designed with front parallel CPU and memory placement, which helps air vent smoothly while reducing power consumption. Shock absorbing mechanisms provide a foundation of reliability, and improve hard drive performance with the proprietary ASUS Shock Mount.
2+1 Expansion Slots
There are three expansion slots on the RS700-E7/RS8, including two PCI Express 3.0 x16 slots and one slot for ASUS PIKE SAS RAID upgrade kits, providing high scalability in a compact 1U chassis.
Designed for Virtualization Applications
With 24 DIMM slots, the RS700-E7/RS8 supports up to 512GB memory (R-DIMM), which is crucial for virtualization and scalability. On the other hand, quad LAN teaming ports offer high networking bandwidth with load balance and fault tolerance functions.
Massive Storage Capacity
Eight hot-swappable 2.5” SATA 6Gb/s or SAS 6Gb/s hard drives provide large storage capacity with high availability and easy maintenance.
Up to 94% Power Efficiency
Outfitted with two 800W 80Plus Platinum power supplies, the RS700-E7/RS8 provides up to 94% power efficiency for HPC applications. The hot-swap design allows the server to keep working even if one power supply requires service.
Comprehensive Storage – RAID
The RS700-E7/RS8 supports optional ASUS RAID PIKE upgrade kits. With just a PIKE riser card and a PIKE card, users can upgrade the server from SATA to SAS storage by re-connecting the cable from the onboard SATA to the PIKE riser card’s SAS port.
Complete Remote Server Management
With default web GUI-based ASMB6-iKVM module, users gain full control of the server with out-of-band management (IPMI 2.0 standard) and 24/7 real-time remote monitoring. 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.
