Extreme Computing Density for HPC Applications
True high density computingLeveraging the power of new Intel® 5500/5600 series processors, the RS720Q-E6/RS12 uses four independent hot-pluggable nodes in a 2U chassis. Each node supports 6-core and 4-core CPUs plus 12 DIMM slots with up to 96GB of memory. The server delivers enhanced high density in a compact four-node 2U configuration, totaling 48 computing cores and 48 DIMM slots.
Efficient power managementThe RS720Q-E6/RS12 ships with 1600W 80+ platinum redundant power supplies, enabling over 90% power efficiency. With load balancing functionality, it provides the maximum power with dual power supplies to handle even the heaviest workloads with ease, and also be redundant for high availability and reliability.
Thoughtful design enables easy maintenanceThe RS720Q-E6/RS12 cares for users with several considerate features. Hot-swappable hard drives, fans and power supplies, even hot-pluggable nodes for convenient online servicing and replacement. Plus, there’s an individual front panel for each node for faster standalone operations.
SAS 2.0 (6Gb/s) storage technologyOptional ASUS PIKE upgrade kits include a PIKE riser, PIKE RAID card, upgrading the server from SATA to SAS storage easily and with great cost-performance efficiency.
Real time remote server managementThe optional web GUI-based ASMB4-iKVM upgrade kit enables full control of server functions via a remote screen. ASUS ASWM software provides easy deployment and management with a user-friendly interface, delivering centralized management, asset supervision, notification mechanisms and integrated BMC BIOS updates.
