ASUS PIKE II & 12G SAS Integration
ASUS PIKE II offers the latest 12Gb/s SAS together with PCI-E 3.0 solution. While ASUS latest 12Gb/s SAS doubles the data rate running at twice the speed of the previous generation, PCI-E 3.0 offers high reliability and faster speed connection. ASUS PIKE II meets user needs with support for 6Gb/s SATA and 12Gb/s SAS storage and integrated RAID data protection. Just placing the PIKE II card can immediately enlarge the capacity, improve the performance, and strengthen the signaling, making it the great upgrade option. Additionally, multiple HBAs allow multi-paths which improve over performance.
RS500-E8-PS4 V2 has high expandability with 2+1 expansion slots in a configuration: that means one PCI-E Gen3x16 slot, one PCI-E Gen3x8 slot, plus one PCI-E Gen3x8 slot Mezzanine card for OCP applications, such as the OCP 10Gbit/s LAN card. This flexible expansion offers diverse applications in storage and networking to meeting the demands of future expansion.
Premium components for premium efficiency
RS500-E8-PS4 V2 benefits from premium components hand-chosen and carefully arranged by ASUS engineers to provide premium efficiency. With ASUS Beat Thermal Chokes, Dr. MOS and Single 600W 80PLUS Gold Power Supply, it delivers great durability and up to 94% power efficiency. The Single 600W 80PLUS Gold Power Supply design allows the server to keep working even if one power supply requires maintenance, enabling uninterrupted operation. RS500-E8-PS4 V2 has durable 12k solid capacitors that are able to withstand up to 12,000 hours of high ambient temperatures. These 12K capacitors also boast lower equivalent series resistance (ESR) for increased efficiency and minimal heat generation.
RS500-E8-PS4 V2 includes a front-side VGA port, so you’re able to connect a display quickly and easily. RS500-E8-PS4 V2 also benefits from an exclusive tool-less rail kit design, easing deployment for systems administrators for increased efficiency.
The server also carries an asset tag for fast identification. RS500-E8-PS4 V2 also offers great freedom when it comes to the choice of operating system drive type and placement, with both M.2 slot for independent OS available.
Easy Diagnostic and Management
RS500-E8-PS4 V2 has a built-in Q-Code/port 80 LED display LED for simple monitoring of the entire boot process, from the early hardware-awakening stages to the launch of the operating system and beyond. A bright CPU and Memory LED on board lets you check the server’s status instantly. With the Intelligent Platform Management Interface (IPMI) 2.0-compliant ASMB8-iKVM module in RS500-E8-PS4 V2, you’ll be able to monitor, control and manage the server remotely.
