High Speed 2U storage
capacity and additional OS kernal disk
is equipped with 24 SAS/SATA 2.5-inch drive bays. The hot-swappable design
provides non-stop high availability, making short work of maintenance. RS720-E8-RS24-ECP
also offers great freedom when it comes to the choice of operating system drive
type and placement, with M.2 slot and two rear hot-swappable 2.5-inch SSD bays available.
And because 2.5-inch drive bays offer faster transferring rate, RS720-E8-RS24-ECP
is ideal for data analytics, cloud computing, data management, and
has high expandability with five expansion slots meeting the demands of future
expansion. There are three PCI-E x16 slot (Gen3 x16 link), one PCI-E x8 slot (Gen3
x8 link), and one PCI-E x8 slot (Gen3 x4 link). This flexible expansion offers
diverse applications in storage and networking to meet the demands of future
expansion and high scalability in a 2U case. ASUS PIKE II and ASUS 10G LAN card
are also available for diverse applications.
ASUS PIKE II & 12G
ASUS PIKE II offers the latest 12Gb/s SAS together
with PCI-E 3.0 solution. While ASUS latest 12Gb/s SAS doubles the data rate
running at twice the speed of the previous generation, PCI-E 3.0 offers high
reliability and faster speed connection. ASUS PIKE II meets user needs with
support for 6Gb/s SATA and 12Gb/s SAS storage and integrated RAID data
protection. Just placing the PIKE II card can immediately enlarge the capacity,
improve the performance, and strengthen the signaling, making it the great
upgrade option. Additionally, multiple HBAs allow multi-paths which improve over
are two groups of fans and each group has two fans. One group of fans is
dedicatedly for CPUs and the fans change the speed accordingly to meet
different demands. The other group is dedicatedly for the rest of serverboard.
In this way, RS720-E8-RS24-ECP offers excellent thermal solution, heat
dissipation and energy savings. It’s even possible to adjust the fan speed
manually, so you have flexible choice to meet different working environment.
Premium components for premium efficiency
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 800W 80 PLUS CRPS Platinum power supplies, it delivers great
durability and up to 94% power efficiency. The 1+1 power supply design allows
the server to keep working even if one power supply requires maintenance,
enabling uninterrupted operation.
Complete Remote Server Management
the Intelligent Platform Management Interface (IPMI) 2.0-compliant ASMB8-iKVM
module in RS720-E8-RS24-ECP, you’ll be able to monitor, control and manage the
server remotely. ASUS Server Web-based Management (ASWM) Enterprise has a
simple and intuitive web-based graphical user interface. Save time and effort
by flashing the BIOS remotely, use the new screen-recording function for quick
and easy trouble-shooting and exploit the many efficiency benefits of
one-to-many centralized management afforded by ASWM Enterprise.
