RS500-E8-PS4 V2

RS500-E8-PS4 V2 internal layout is optimized for rack-mountedconfigurations, with optimized fan speed control and an adjustable-fan-curvefeature. Advanced air-ducting technology allows RS500-E8-PS4 V2 to work at highoperating temperature and with an 80 PLUS Platinum power-supply unit (PSU) up to94% VR efficiency!

ASUS PIKE II& 12G SAS Integration

ASUS PIKE II offers the latest12Gb/s SAS together with PCI-E 3.0 solution. While ASUS latest 12Gb/s SAS doublesthe data rate running at twice the speed of the previous generation, PCI-E 3.0offers high reliability and faster speed connection. ASUS PIKE II meets userneeds with support for 6Gb/s SATA and 12Gb/s SAS storage and integrated RAIDdata protection. Just placing the PIKE II card can immediately enlarge thecapacity, improve the performance, and strengthen the signaling, making it thegreat upgrade option. Additionally, multiple HBAs allow multi-paths whichimprove over performance.

2+1 expansion

RS500-E8-PS4 V2 has high expandability with 2+1 expansion slots in aconfiguration: that means one PCI-E Gen3x16 slot, one PCI-E Gen3x8 slot, plusone PCI-E Gen3x8 slot Mezzanine card for OCP applications, such as the OCP10Gbit/s LAN card. This flexible expansion offers diverse applications instorage and networking to meeting the demands of future expansion.

Premium components for premiumefficiency

RS500-E8-PS4 V2 benefits from premium components hand-chosen and carefullyarranged by ASUS engineers to provide premium efficiency. With ASUS BeatThermal Chokes, Dr. MOS and Single 600W 80PLUS Platinum Power Supply, it deliversgreat durability and up to 94% power efficiency. The Single 600W 80PLUS PlatinumPower Supply design allows the server to keep working even if one power supplyrequires maintenance, enabling uninterrupted operation. RS500-E8-PS4 V2 hasdurable 12k solid capacitors that are able to withstand up to 12,000 hours ofhigh ambient temperatures. These 12K capacitors also boast lower equivalentseries resistance (ESR) for increased efficiency and minimal heat generation.

Instant Deployment

RS500-E8-PS4 V2 includes a front-side VGA port, so you’re able to connect adisplay quickly and easily. RS500-E8-PS4 V2 also benefits from an exclusivetool-less rail kit design, easing deployment for systems administrators forincreased efficiency.
The server also carries an asset tag for fast identification. RS500-E8-PS4 V2 alsooffers great freedom when it comes to the choice of operating system drive typeand placement, with both M.2 slot for independent OS available.

Easy Diagnostic and Management

RS500-E8-PS4 V2 has a built-in Q-Code/port 80 LED display LED for simplemonitoring of the entire boot process, from the early hardware-awakening stagesto the launch of the operating system and beyond. A bright CPU and Memory LEDon board lets you check the server’s status instantly. With the IntelligentPlatform Management Interface (IPMI) 2.0-compliant ASMB8-iKVM module inRS500-E8-PS4 V2, you’ll be able to monitor, control and manage the serverremotely.
