ESC4000A-E10 also supports NVIDIA NVLink® Bridge to enable scaling of performance in order to meet the demands of AI and high-performance computing, and to securely run workloads in virtualization environments.
* Model supporting eight single-slot GPUs will be available in Q4 2020.
ESC4000A-E10 features a flexible front panel design that allows for easy storage and network expansions and upgrades. The design offers easier accessibility of up to four NVMe SSD drives and an optional choice of OCP 3.0, a M.2 adapter or HBA/RAID card via PCIe 4.0 slot for better performance and lower latency.
ESC4000A-E10 is a NVIDIA RTX server validate system that deliver unprecedented performance at a fraction of the cost, space, and power requirements of traditional CPU-based solutions, from production rendering to scalable visualization systems or HPC, AI, ML, big data analytics, and at the edge deployment options.
ESC4000A-E10 features a OCP 3.0 mezzanine card to deliver speeds of up to 200 Gbps for HPC applications that require high-bandwidth, low-latency network support for connecting multiple nodes and clusters.
To effectively manage the storage demands of growing amounts of data, ESC4000A-E10 has a dense chassis design that accommodates up to eight 3.5-inch or 2.5- inch drives, including up to four NVMe SSDs support. One onboard 22110-length M.2 SSD allows faster data transfer speeds for OS installation, and a hyper M.2 card is available to provide even greater expansion capability.

ASUS features server thermal-control technologies to provide real-time server temperature monitoring, intelligent fan-curve adjustments, and continue delivering the value of optimized power-efficiency.
ASUS Thermal Radar 2.0 takes advantage of placing up to 56 ambient sensors on the front panel of a server as well as in components for temperature monitoring. It can perform intelligent fan-curve adjustments to fit the real-time server usage patterns, lowering fan power-consumption by up to 36% and reducing total cost of ownership — ideal for data centers with extreme workloads.
Sensors are embedded on front panel, CPU, NVMe SSD, OCP card, PSU and memory. Up to 56 ambient sensors on selected models.
Fans are grouped for dynamic fan curve adjustment in different fan zones to achieve more precise thermal monitoring.
More precise thermal information can reduce power consumption and lower down TCO.
ASUS Power Balancer is an exclusive technology that enables ASUS servers to adjust overall loading automatically based on real-time monitoring in order to decrease overall power consumption for improved efficiency and cost/performance optimization.
Monitor and feedback CPU loading to have more accurate management on the system.
Dynamically and automatically adjust CPU frequency based on current utilization to reduce power consumption.
Optimize performance per watt for a better power efficiency system.
ESC4000A-E10 features an embedded iKVM module and is bundled with ASUS Control Center to provide comprehensive out-of-band and in-band management features for small and mid-size businesses.
The embedded ASMB9-iKVM module supports remote BIOS updates, fan control, standalone KVMs, video recording, and BSOD capture, providing around-the-clock remote monitoring and diagnostics — even if the operating system is down or offline — through a user-friendly, web-based graphical interface that works with all major browsers.
ASUS Control Center (ACC) is a centralized and integrated IT management platform for monitoring and controlling ASUS commercial products, including servers, workstations, and Mini PCs. ACC enables remote BIOS updates, monitoring of multiple systems via mobile devices, and one-click software updates and dispatching, allowing easier server management for any IT infrastructure.
