Dual Core 2U Rack-mount Server with High
    Storage Capability

    It is hard to enclose 8 HDDs in the limited space of 2U chassis and keep stability at the same time; however, ASUS' special multi-fan module design successfully solves the thermal problem, and the redundancy system design makes work more reliably than any other 2U servers.

    Powerful Computing and Huge Storage Space

    RS260-E3 / RS8 supports dual Intel® Xeon™ processors (dual core ready) with 800MHz FSB up to 3.6GB and max. 16GB DDR2 400 ECC registered DIMMs, which offer most powerful computing ability. RS260-E3 / RS8 has up to 8 hot-swap SCSI HDDs expansion capability, 2 more bays compared with other brands in the market.

    Reliable Date Protection
    Besides fundamental RAID 0, 1 support, Adaptec® SO-DIMM ZCR support provides customer with affordable RAID upgrade.

    Flexible Tool-less Design
    System administrator or service engineer can pull out the 2U server system from the rack and replace faulty hot-swap components with a single hand.

    Great expansion ability in add-on card
    Three full height full length 66MHz PCI-X slot and one 133MHz low profile PCI-X slot provide customer broad expansion choices.
