Lean & Cool Design Romley Socket 2011 Serverboard
Lean and Cool Design for Rack-optimized Solutions
With the CPU and memory in front parallel design, the Z9PR-D12 provides excellent thermal efficiency by smooth air ventilation, making it rack optimized and suitable for data center.
7 Expansion Slots Support
The Z9PR-D12 provides high expandability with 7 expansion slots, including 6 PCI-E G3 x8 slots (x8 link) and 1 x PCI-E G3 x16 slot (x16 link, switch to x8 link automatically if the slot 5 is occupied), meeting the demand of future expansion. In addition, there is also a propriety slot for ASUS PIKE SAS RAID Upgrade kit.
The Z9PR-D12 supports new generation Intel Xeon processor E5-2600 product family. With 12 DIMM sockets on board, the serverboard supports DDR3 1333/1600 RDIMM/UDIMM up to 384GB 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 Solution Supported
The Z9PR-D12 is built with SATA solutions from C602 PCH, which supports the latest SATA 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 LAN and 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).
