Rack Optimized with 16 DIMM Design
The ASUS Z9PR-D16 serverboard is able to provide an ideal foundation for reliable performance and upgrades in the future. Through ASUS’ innovative design, the Z9PR-D16 supports AHCI/PIKE storage and quad Intel LAN ports, and provides high I/O expandability. Moreover, the ASMB6 let users obtain high manageability. It is ideal for socket 2011 applications, IP data center, social network data center, web hosting, rack-optimized server and other general purpose applications.
Cool Design for Rack-optimized Solutions
With the CPU and memory in front parallel design, the Z9PR-D16 provides excellent thermal efficiency by smooth air ventilation, making it rack optimized and suitable for data center.
5 Expansion Slots Support
The Z9PR-D16provides high expandability with 5 expansion slots, including 4 PCI-E G3 x8 slots (x8 link) and 1 x PCI-E G3 x16 slot (x16 link), meeting the demand of future expansion. In addition, there is also a propriety slot for ASUS PIKE SAS RAID Upgrade kit.
The Z9PR-D16 supports new generation Intel Xeon processor E5-2600 / E5-2600 V2 product family. With 16 DIMM sockets on board, the serverboard supports DDR3 1600/1866 RDIMM/UDIMM up to 512GB memory capacity, providing high computing capability. Additionally, there are more PCI-E lanes with PCI-E gen 3 support, which is suitable for the systems that require high I/O connectivity and bandwidth and supports more PCI-E devices.
Complete Storage SolutionSupported
The Z9PR-D16 is built with SATA solutions from C602 PCH, which supports the latestSATA 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.
Onboard ASMB6 for Easy Troubleshooting
The ASMB6 enables dashboard and monitor system health, remote power on /off and control, virtual media over LANand 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).
