Extreme Computing Density for HPC Applications
True high density computingLeveraging the power of new Intel® 5500/5600 series processors, the RS724Q-E6/RS12 uses four independent hot-pluggable nodes in a 2U chassis. Each node supports 6-core and 4-core CPUs plus 12 DIMM slots with up to 96GB of memory. The server delivers enhanced high density in a compact four-node 2U configuration, totaling 48 computing cores and 48 DIMM slots.
Intelligent power managementThe RS724Q-E6/RS12 ships with 1600W 80+ platinum redundant power supplies, enabling 88% power efficiency. With load balancing functionality, it allows the dual power supplies to handle even the heaviest workloads with ease.
High speed InterconnectOnboard InfiniBand® QDR (40Gb/s) and a QFSP port make the RS724Q-E6/RS12 well prepared for HPC applications with higher transfer rates and lower latency.
Thoughtful design enables easy maintenanceThe RS724Q-E6/RS12 cares for users with several considerate features. Hot-swappable hard drives, fans and power supplies, even hot-pluggable nodes for convenient online servicing and replacement. Plus, there’s an individual front panel for each node for faster standalone operations.
SAS 2.0 (6Gb/s) storage technologyOptional ASUS PIKE upgrade kits include a PIKE riser, PIKE RAID card, and an SAS port, upgrading the server from SATA to SAS storage easily and with great cost-performance efficiency.
Real time remote server managementThe optional web GUI-based ASMB4-iKVM upgrade kit enables full control of server functions via a remote screen. ASUS ASWM software provides easy deployment and management with a user-friendly interface, delivering centralized management, asset supervision, notification mechanisms and integrated BMC BIOS updates.
