Best choice for scale-out storage in data centers
- The ASUS P9D-MH/SAS/10G-DUAL is a micro ATX form factor serverboard featuring the latest Intel® Xeon® E3-1200 v3 processor family, Broadcom® 10Gb/s Ethernet, dual server-class Intel® Ethernet I210 LAN, LSI SAS 2308 controller, SATA 6Gb/s storage, and ASUS digital power delivery.
- The P9D-MH/SAS/10G-DUAL is tailor-made for Apache™ Hadoop® storage servers to handle big data using large-scale commodity hardware and can also be applied to other high-end storage server applications.
Designed for Apache™ Hadoop® storage servers
The P9D-MH/SAS/10G-DUAL uses an LSI 2308 SAS controller and a Broadcom® 10Gb/s Ethernet chipset to provide the best capabilities for Apache™ Hadoop® server applications. With the LSI 2308 controller, the P9D-MH/SAS/10G-DUAL supports large storage capacity, while the Broadcom® 10Gb/s Ethernet controller meets the needs of high speed interconnection between servers in data centers. These two elements make the P9D-MH/SAS/10G-DUAL an excellent product for cloud computing and big data.
High power efficiency with premium components and digital power control
ASUS-exclusive Beat Thermal Chokes improve voltage regulator power efficiency. They handle greater stress with ease, as a unique fin design results in around 4°C lower choke temperatures for added stability, which is increased exponentially by use of highly conductive and efficient gold-treated coating. This translates into minimal-loss power delivery.
Digital CPU power controls work perfectly together to match digital power signal (SVID) requests from the CPU, with ultra-fast sensing and response efficiently delivering precision power. Accurate delivery reduces waste and provides more stable voltage.
The benefits from these components significantly increase P9D-MH/SAS/10G-DUAL power efficiency up to 91%
High speed interconnection with Broadcom® 10 GbE controller
The P9D-MH/SAS/10G-DUAL comes with a Broadcom® 10Gb/sEthernet controller and SFP+ connectors. The Broadcom® controller is performance-focused and optimized for high throughput, low latency, and reduced CPU utilization, making it an excellent choice for data center, enterprise, and service provider users.
Complete storage solution for Data Center
P9D-MH/SAS/10G-DUAL is built with Intel® C224 chipset which natively supports 4-port Serial ATA (SATA) 6G interface, and supports 8-port SAS 6G from LSI SAS2308 with PCI-E Gen3 interface. With Intel® C224 chipset and LSI 2308 Integrated RAID controller, P9D-MH/SAS/10G-DUAL provides large storage capacity for data center and other high-end storage server applications.
SATA DOM (Disk on Module) ready
A SATA DOM is a flash drive simulating a hard disc which can be used without additional software or drivers. It is particularly useful within embedded computing systems or thin clients. The ASUS-exclusive design adds an onboard 4-pin power connector and a USB header to make SATA DOM installation simple and easy.
Comprehensive server management: ASMB7-iKVM and ASWM Enterprise
The ASMB7-iKVM upgrade kit enables dashboard system health monitoring, remote power on/off and control, virtual media over LAN, and management LAN fail-over support. In addition, the ASMB7 function is based on BIOS-level access, so 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. ASWM Enterprise software provides one-to-multiple centralized management, including BIOS flash, remote control, and power control, all through a colorful and informative graphical interface.
Friendly Design for front I/O, front VGA
An accessible rear power button is reserved onboard for use as front panel ports when reversing the serverboard. An extra 15-pin VGA header features front-panel monitor connectivity, helping customers with greater flexibility. These designs provide flexible I/O integration for users to fit in various computing environments.
