Mass Storage Capacity in a 2U Chassis
The RS700-E7/RS12 is built with 12 SAS/SATA 2.5”/3.5” hard drive bays to support up to 36TB storage capacity. The hot-swappable design provides non-stop high availability, with easy maintenance and servicing.
The RS720-E7/RS12 has high expandability with six expansion slots, including two PCI Express 3.0 x16 slots (x8 link) or one PCI Express 3.0 x16 slot (x16 link), three PCI Express 3.0 x16 slots, and one PCI Express 3.0 x16 slot (x8 link), meeting the demands of future expansion. In addition, a dedicated slot for ASUS PIKE SAS RAID upgrade kits is included.
Up to 92% Power Efficiency
The use of 1+1 redundant 770W 80Plus Gold power supplies offers high power efficiency for HPC applications. Also hot-swappable, power supplies can be serviced individually without shutting down the server.
Quad LAN Support
Quad LAN teaming ports provide high networking bandwidth with load balance and fault tolerance functions. The server supports ASUS-made and most market-available 10Gb LAN cards for fast networking.
The RS720-E7/RS12 supports ASUS RAID PIKE RAID Solution. Users may upgrade the server from SATA to SAS storage by re-connecting the cable from the onboard SATA to the PIKE riser card’s SAS port, creating multiple storage options!
Complete Remote Server Management
By installing an optional web GUI-based ASMB6-iKVM module, users get full control of the server with out-of-band management (IPMI 2.0 standard) and 24/7 real-time remote monitoring. Meanwhile, ASWM Enterprise software provides one-to-multiple centralized management, including BIOS flashing, remote control, power control, and asset management through a user-friendly interface. This gives users an effective tool for remote server management.
