Compact form factor with high interconnection bandwidth
The ASUS P9D-MH/10G-DUAL is a micro ATX form factor serverboard featuring the latest Intel® Xeon® E3-1200 v3 processor family, Broadcom® 10Gb/s Ethernet, dual server-class Intel® Ethernet I210 LAN, and ASUS digital power delivery. Together these features make it a great fit for various server applications, including small form factor servers, data centers, and so on.
High speed interconnection with Broadcom® 10 GbE controller
The P9D-MH/10G-DUAL comes with a Broadcom® 10Gb/s Ethernet controller and SFP+ connectors. The Broadcom® 10Gb/s controller is performance-focused and optimized for high throughput, low latency, and reduced CPU utilization. With The Broadcom® 10Gb/s Ethernet chipset, P9D-MH/10G-DUAL can fulfill the needs of high speed interconnection between servers in data centers. Thus it is an excellent choice for data center, enterprise, and service provider users.
High power efficiency with premium components and digital power control
ASUS-exclusive Beat Thermal Chokes improve voltage regulator power efficiency. They handle greater stress with ease, as a unique fin design results in around 4°C lower choke temperatures for added stability, which is increased exponentially by use of highly conductive and efficient gold-treated coating. This translates into minimal-loss power delivery.
Digital CPU power controls work perfectly together to match digital power signal (SVID) requests from the CPU, with ultra-fast sensing and response efficiently delivering precision power. Accurate delivery reduces waste and provides more stable voltage. The benefits from these components significantly increase P9D-MH/10G-DUAL power efficiency up to 91%.
SATA DOM (Disk on Module) ready
A SATA DOM is a flash drive simulating a hard disc which can be used without additional software or drivers. It is particularly useful within embedded computing systems or thin clients. The ASUS-exclusive design adds an onboard 4-pin power connector and a USB header to make the installation of SATA DOM install simple and easy.
Comprehensive server management: ASMB7-iKVM and ASWM Enterprise
The ASMB7-iKVM upgrade kit enables dashboard system health monitoring, remote power on/off and control, virtual media over LAN, and management LAN fail-over support. In addition, the ASMB7 function is based on BIOS-level access, so even if the server operating system is down or offline, the KVM module can still provide round-the-clock remote monitoring and diagnosis through a user-friendly web-based graphical interface. ASWM Enterprise software provides one-to-multiple centralized management, including BIOS flash, remote control, and power control, all through a colorful and informative graphical interface.
Friendly Design for front I/O, front VGA
An accessible rear power button is reserved onboard for use as front panel ports when reversing the serverboard. An extra 15-pin VGA header features front-panel monitor connectivity, helping customers with greater flexibility. These designs provide flexible I/O integration for users to fit in various computing environments.
