Mainstream High Speed 1U Computing Node
Mass Storage Capacity with Complete RAID SolutionRS500-E6/PS4 has four 3.5” hot-swap HDD bays to support SATA or SAS HDDs up to 4TB, meeting the demand of mass storage. The hot-swap design is reliable for 7x24 non-stop services. With ASUS optional PIKE upgrade kit, the server is able to provide flexible RAID choices.
Optimal 1U Placement & Multiple I/O ExpandabilityOptimal front “Parallel-Balance” design not only provides effective cooling for the system but also makes support of two Full-Height I/O expansion cards available.
RS500-E6/PS4 provides default expansion solution as 1 PCI-E G2 x16 (x8 link) slot and 1 PCI-E G2 x8 (x8 link) slot for high speed connection.
80+ System Power EfficiencyWith 80+ PFC high efficiency power supply, RS500-E6/PS4 is able to reduce the power loss and power consumption, and save power bill for users, which can be a large deal for 7x24 hour non-stop servers. The EPU (Energy Processing Unit) engine will provide optimal and effective CPU power management.
Virtualization SupportThe onboard vertical USB connector for VMware ESXi supports virtualization application in RS500-E6/PS4. Virtualization not only improves the server’s utility rate and manageability, but also reduces hardware cost and power consumption for customers.
High Quality ComponentsThe ASUS 6-Phase power and 3-Phase memory power design reduces input ripple current and output ripple voltage, which keeps CPUs and power modules from suffering the risk of high power stress. All Japan-made 5000hr ultra durable conductive polymer capacitors onboard provide durability, improved lifespan, and enhanced thermal capacity.
