With onboard LSI 3008 RAID controller and Intel® C612 chipset, Z10PC-D8/SAS provides large storage capacity for data center, Hadoop storage servers, and other storage server applications.

      Compatible with ATX Cases

      Z10PC-D8/SAS serverboard supports dual Intel® Xeon® server processors in a 12” x 10.5” compact size with ATX mounting hole locations. This gives you the freedom to mount Z10PC-D8/SAS in many off-the-shelf ATX case options, avoiding the complication and expense of sourcing specialist propriety case designs – ensures end customers can benefit from up-to-date server technologies with affordable budget.

      Mass Storage Capacity in 1U and Additional OS Storage

      Z10PC-D8/SAS is equipped with up to 18 SATA 6Gb/s ports, offering support for mass storage capacity. In an alternative configuration, Z10PC-D8/SAS has 17 SATA 6 Gb/s and an M.2 slot for a solid-state drive — ideal for an operating system boot drive. Furthermore, with the onboard LSI 3008 design, users are able to build a most space-saving 1U solution with mass storage capacity, without the need to upgrade through 1U riser card, making it the best recipe for 1U storage server applications.

      Premium Components for Premium Efficiency

      ASUS Z10 server board series design the premium power solution with the hand-chosen components and provide premium efficiency which is up to 94%. The premium power solution consist 4 pillars to achieve the 94% premium efficiency: Beat Thermal Choke, Dr. MOS, 12K capacitor and Digi+ VRM. A special fin design of Beat-Thermal-Choke results in 3-5℃ lower choke temperatures and raise the stability, and translates into minimal-loss power delivery. The Dr. MOS is a proven stable circuit integrated MOSFET, which can optimize the switching performance and contribute the efficiency to the system. ASUS DIGI+ VRM design empowers users with superior flexibility and has the perfect precision to ensure optimized performance, extreme system stability. Moreover, ASUS is the world’s first server manufacturer to introduce 12K solid capacitors which are able to withstand up to 1,200,000 hours of temperatures as high as 65°C (12K hours@105°C). These 12K capacitors can also lower equivalent series resistance (ESR) and thus to increase efficiency and minimal heat generation.

      Quick Initialization Guidance

      The ASUS Z10 series features quick initialization guidance which let users realize system initialization state in seconds; furthermore users are able to diagnose system instantly through POST code message in the POST stage. The quick initialization guidance during the POST includes 2 phases. In phase 1 -- POST in seconds, the screen lightens in seconds to make users instantly access to system initializing status. In phase 2, device scanning information and 2-digit POST code messages are available to give users a total understanding of startup process and to clearly indicate boot-up status which is easy for troubleshooting.

      Complete Remote Server Management

      The optional ASMB8-iKVM (IPMI 2.0-compliant) enables remote update BIOS, standalone KVM/Java utility, video recording and BSOD capture. Based on out-of-band management, 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 via all major browsers. In addition, ASWM Enterprise software provides one-to-multiple centralized management including BIOS flash, software dispatch, task scheduler, remote control, and power control, all through a colorful and informative graphical interface. Through ASUS remote management solution, users could save time and effort on server management and trouble-shooting.
