RS300-E8-RS4 - New levels of efficiency and optimizeddesign
As always, ASUS makes servers that deliver superior performance.In this generation, the ASUS RS300-E8-RS4 supports the latest IntelXeon E3-1200 v3 processor family with advanced computing power thatcan easily work at up to sustainable 40 degrees centigrade stresswhile reducing power loss. In addition, the ASUS RS300-E8-RS4offers two expansion slots as well as one ASUS PIKE slot, aninternal SSD cage for independent OS drive space, and completeremote server management through ASWM Enterprise andASMB7-iKVM.
The latest Intel CPUs
The RS300-E8-RS4 is ready for new-generation Intel Xeon 22nmprocessors, which deliver a significant performance improvementover previous-generation processors in virtualization support,integrated security, scalability, and I/O performance. They assurefrustration-free smooth operation.
2+1 expandability in UP 1U
The RS300-E8-RS4 ships with 2+1 expansion slots in a 1U system forhigher expandability and better data protection. It has one PCIExpress 3.0 x16 slot and one PCI Express 3.0 x8 slot to accommodatethe power of two dual full-height add-on cards. An extra slot isreserved for optional ASUS PIKE cards for cost effective upgradesto SAS storage and RAID protection.
Better networking with new quad server-grade Intel I210Ethernet
Four server-grade Intel Ethernet ports with the I210 controllerdouble queuing capacity compared to previous-generation IntelEthernet 82574L controllers, powering faster data transmission. Inaddition, quad LAN teaming ports provide high networking bandwidthwith load balance and fault tolerance functions, which reduce dataprocessing bottlenecks in virtualization environments by increasingvirtualized traffic.
Best-in-class power efficiency and stability
With new ASUS Beat Thermal Choke technology, operating temperaturesdrop by as much as 5 degrees centigrade, helping ensure the lowestenergy loss and up to 91% (VR) efficiency. The RS300-E8-RS4 is ableto work stably under high ambient temperature environments of up toa sustained 40 degrees centigrade. It also includes 1+1 80 PLUSGold power supplies to reduce power loss and power consumption,helping consumers save on total cost of ownership.
Optimized user experience design
A front VGA port provides greater convenience and flexibility,allowing customers to connect a monitor from the front. There isalso an asset tag on every RS300-E8-RS4 for better identificationwithin a server cluster. ASUS further furnishes several choices forOS drive placement, such as SSD and SATA DOM cages, plus internalType A USB.
Comprehensive remote management
ASUS presents the most comprehensive and complete server remotemanagement, including both out of band ASMB7-iKVM and in-band ASWMEnterprise. ASWM Enterprise features one on many management, savingtime and effort. Its intuitive graphical user interface offersquick insight into current server status as well as detailed andeasily-accessible asset management for each server.
