High-efficiency cooling and lower power consumption
RS500-E8-RS4 internal layout is optimized for rack-mounted configurations, with optimized fan speed control and an adjustable-fan-curve feature. Advanced air-ducting technology allows RS500-E8-RS4 to work at high operating temperature and with an 80 PLUS® Gold power-supply unit (PSU) up to 94% VR efficiency!
RS500-E8-RS4 has high expandability with 2+1 expansion slots in a configuration: that means one PCI-E Gen3x 16 slot, one PCI-E Gen3x 8 slot, plus one PCI-E Gen3x 8 slot OCP Mezzanine 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-RS4 benefits from premium components hand-chosen and carefully arranged by ASUS engineers to provide premium efficiency. With ASUS Beat Thermal Chokes, Dr. MOS and 1+1 Redundant 770W 80PLUS Gold Power Supply, it delivers great durability and up to 94% power efficiency. The 1+1 Redundant 770W 80PLUS Gold Power Supply design allows the server to keep working even if one power supply requires maintenance, enabling uninterrupted operation. RS500-E8-RS4 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-RS4 includes a front-side VGA port, so you’re able to connect a display quickly and easily. RS500-E8-RS4 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-RS4 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-RS4 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-RS4, you’ll be able to monitor, control and manage the server remotely.
