Lean & Cool Design Romley Value Serverboard
Lean and Cool Design for Rack-optimized Solutions
With the CPU and memory in front parallel design, the Z9NR-D12 provides excellent thermal efficiency by smooth air ventilation, making it rack optimized and suitable for data center.
7 Expansion Slots Support
The Z9NR-D12 provides high expandability with 7 expansion slots, including 1 PCI-E G3 x16 slot (x16 link), 3 PCI-E G3 x8 slots (x8 link), 1 PCI-E G3 x8 slots (x4 link), 1 PCI-E G2 x4 slot (x2 link) and 1 PCI-E G2 x4 slot (x1 link), meeting the demand of future expansion. In addition, there is also a propriety slot for ASUS PIKE SAS RAID Upgrade kit.
The Z9NR-D12 supports new generation Intel Xeon processor E5-2400 product family. With 12 DIMM sockets on board, the serverboard supports DDR3 1333/1600 RDIMM/UDIMM up to 384GB memory capacity, providing high computing capability.
Complete Storage Solution Supported
The Z9NR-D12 is built with SATA solutions from C602 PCH, which supports the latest SATA 6G technology. While 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; and is cost effective for customers.
ASMB6 for Easy Troubleshooting
The ASMB6 enables dashboard and monitor system health, remote power on /off and control, virtual media over LAN and network bonding support. In addition, the ASMB6 function is based on BIOS-level access; thus even if the server OS is down, the KVM module is still able to provide around-the-clock remote monitor and diagnosis through a user-friendly GUI (Web-based Graphical User Interface).
Server-class quad LAN connection
The Z9NR-D12 ships with four Intel 82574L Gigabit Ethernet Controllers, which provide quad LAN connection to be capable of higher bandwidth aggregation and reliable networking based on failover and load balance functions. Additionally, the new serverboard is compatible with the ASUS 10G LAN Card and most market available 10G LAN cards.
