      GPU server with optimized thermal design for extreme computing power

      Streamlined design for improved airflow and lower running costs

      To provide the perfect solution for HPC scenarios, ESC4000 G2S features vertically-oriented hard disk drive (HDD) bays. This smart arrangement frees up space on either side of the drive bays, allowing stronger and more direct airflow from the front panel to the GPUs and other components, delivering better energy efficiency and power savings. Additionally, this streamlined airflow to the heat-generating components allows the temperature of the GPU cards to be reduced. The temperature of GPU card in ESC4000 G2S is decreased by 10% compared to that in ESC4000 G2 while the fan is spinning in full speed. And under the same loading condition, the power consumption comes from system fans which are dedicated to GPU in ESC4000 G2S is decreased by 20% and the temperature is dropping 5% compared to ESC4000 G2. Therefore, ESC4000 G2S servers’ optimized airflow allows better performance for mission-critical calculations and applications.

      8+1 Flexible Expansion Slots

      The ESC4000 G2S 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 K40/K20/K10 Family and GRIDTM K1/K2 of GPU accelerators. In addition, there is an optional riser for a low profile/half-length card and PIKE solution.

      1+1 Redundant PSU (1620W 80 PLUS Platinum)

      The ESC4000 G2S is equipped with a 1620W 80 PLUS 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.

      Comprehensive RAID Solutions

      The ESC4000 G2S 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.

      Cutting-edge Architecture

      The ESC4000 G2S supports dual CPUs from the Intel® Xeon® E5-2600 v2 processor family and with 16 DIMM sockets onboard; up to 512GB of four-channel DDR3 1866/1600/1333 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.
