High density 2U hybrid HPC computing power
8+1 Flexible Expansion Slots
The ESC4000/FDR G2 supports up to eight PCI-E Gen3 x16 slots for high expandability, compatible with versatile expansion cards, especially in supporting up-to-date Intel® Xeon Phi™ 7120P, 5110P and 3100 series as well as NVIDIA Tesla K10/K20 Family and GRIDTM K2 of GPU accelerators. In addition, there is an optional riser for a low profile/half-length card and PIKE solution.
Intelligent System Fan Control II Function
To 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 Interconnection
With 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 Solutions
The 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 Solution
By 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.
The 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.
