Powered by the latest 2nd Gen Intel Xeon Scalable processors
RS720-E9-RS12 is built on the latest 2nd Gen Intel Xeon Scalable processors to deliver incredible 2U server performance, packing incredible power into minimal space. RS720-E9-RS12 offers breakthrough performance with the latest Intel Optane™ DC persistent memory with an over 88% gain in input/output operations per second (IOPS) compared with the same configuration in SSD. Featuring the latest Intel Deep Learning Boost technology to enhance deep learning capabilities, RS720-E9-RS12 achieves a 3.1X performance improvement in the ResNet-50 and SSD VGG-16 models, fully demonstrating the inference capability of the new platform.
User-friendly design for easier server maintenance
RS700-E9-RS12 features numerous user-friendly design features that simplify server maintenance. The server’s Q-code is visible from the outside of the case to make diagnosing issues easier and more convenient. A tool-less rack rail kit is included for easy server installation and removal, and a tool-less, hot-swappable fan provides faster and simpler maintenance.
Advanced I/O support for 3+1 Expandability
RS700-E9-RS12 offers one full-high PCI Express 3.0 x16 slot (x16 link), one low-profile PCI Express 3.0 x16 slot (x8 link), one low-profile PCI Express 3.0 x8 slot (x8 link), and one OCP 2.0 Mezzanine slot (x16 link) to support 10G/25G/100G LAN card. The flexible expansions offer diverse applications in storage and networking to meeting the demands of future expansion and high scalability in a 1U server.
Expandable storage for faster transfer speeds
RS700-E9-RS12 features a port-to-port OCuLink design with 3X faster transfer speeds compared to PCIe switch IC solutions. Two M.2 slots accommodate 22110-size SSDs with support for additional OS storage and PCIe 3.0 x4 bandwidth — 5.3X faster than 6 Gb/s SATA III — for faster boot speeds. RS700-E9-RS12 is ideal for data centers with high storage and processing demands.
Fully integrated remote server management
The latest ASMB9-iKVM module enables remote BIOS updates, standalone KVM/Java utilities, video recording and BSOD capture. With out-of-band management, ASMB9-iKVM provides around-the-clock remote monitoring and diagnostics — even if the server 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 digital signage. ACC enables easier server management with functions such as BIOS updating without restarting the system, remote monitoring of multiple systems via mobile devices, and one-click software updates and dispatching.
Smart thermal design for energy efficiency
RS700-E9-RS12 features a smart thermal radar design with more ambient thermal sensors for the CPU, memory, GPU, SSD, LAN card and front-panel board that provide improved temperature monitoring and enable dynamic fan speed adjustment for better power efficiency. This smart thermal design reduces fan power consumption by up to 20% and eliminates the power-sharing board for improved efficiency and lower operation costs.
