Safety information
Electrical Safety
•
•
•
•
Before installing or removing signal cables, ensure that the power cables for
the system unit and all attached devices are unplugged.
To prevent electrical shock hazard, disconnect the power cable from the
electrical outlet before relocating the system.
When adding or removing any additional devices to or from the system, contact
a qualified service technician or your dealer. Ensure that the power cables for
the devices are unplugged before the signal cables are connected. If possible,
disconnect all power cables from the existing system before you service.
If the power supply is broken, do not try to fix it by yourself. Contact a qualified
service technician or your dealer.
Operation Safety
•
•
•
•
•
Servicing of this product or units is to be performed by trained service
personnel only.
Before operating the server, carefully read all the manuals included with the
server package.
Before using the server, ensure all cables are correctly connected and the
power cables are not damaged. If any damage is detected, contact your dealer
as soon as possible.
To avoid short circuits, keep paper clips, screws, and staples away from
connectors, slots, sockets and circuitry.
Avoid dust, humidity, and temperature extremes. Place the server on a stable
surface.
This product is equipped with a three-wire power cable and plug for the user’s
safety. Use the power cable with a properly grounded electrical outlet to avoid
electrical shock.
Lithium-Ion Battery Warning
CAUTION! Danger of explosion if battery is incorrectly replaced.
Replace only with the same or equivalent type recommended by the
manufacturer. Dispose of used batteries according to the manufacturer’s
instructions.

This chapter describes the key
features of TS300-E7/PS4. It includes
the product overview and general
specifications.
Product introduction
Chapter 1
1-
1.1
Key features
The TS300-E7/PS4 is a single-socket pedestal server system based on quad/dualCore Intel® E3-1200/ Core™ i3-2100 processors and the Intel® C204PCH chipset
with support for up to 32GB DDR3 1333MHz unbuffered ECC memory. This
provides immediate performance upscaling and higher processing speeds. With
2 native SATA 6Gb/s ports, 4 hot-swap hard drive trays and ASUS PIKE cards,
the TS300-E7/PS4 delivers improved data transfer rates, more flexible storage
expansion and complete RAID for SMB users.
The latest Intel® CPUs
The TS300-E7/PS4 is ready for the latest generation of Intel® Xeon® 32nm quad/
dual-core UP processors, which offer a significant performance improvement over
previous generation CPUs. Meanwhile, Intel® Turbo Boost Technology 2.0 provides
an efficient, dynamic and intelligent way to enhance performance on demand.
Quad Intel® server-class Gigabit LAN
Quad Intel® Gigabit LAN with teaming doubles bandwidth over standard dual
LAN servers and supports better fault tolerance technology. Also, load balancing
handles traffic for stronger and faster networking. IPv6 readiness resolves
upcoming IPv4 address shortages even before they occur, hassle-free.
ASUS PIKE upgrade kit for SAS storage
The TS300-E7/PS4 offers optional and exclusive PIKE upgrade kits for users to
boost storage from SATA to SAS. Multiple I/O options and the slim, flexible PIKE
card let users switch to SAS RAID without sacrificing expansion capabilities.
Flex-E technology for server/workstation dual use
ASUS Flex-E provides flexible PCI-E configurations and auto-switching between
a single PCI-E x16 link (graphics card supported) and twin PCI-E x8 link (for I/O
expansion), allowing the product to work as a workstation for servers. FCC Class
B certification and the optional rack mount kit make the TS300-E7/PS4 perfect as
either a pedestal or 5U rack, and suitable for personal use or office applications.
Considerate tool-less design
To minimize maintenance hassles, the TS300-E7/PS4 uses a tool-less design
in several components, including back fan module, optical devices, and PCI-E/
hard drive cages. These reduce the time and effort MIS needs to allocate for
maintenance.
Optional ASMB5-iKVM upgrade kit for easy management
Optional ASMB5-iKVM upgrade kits provide BIOS-level remote real-time control of
the system via keyboard, monitor and mouse (KVM over Ethernet) from any local
computer.
1-2
Chapter 1: Product introduction
Optional ASUS TPM module
Supporting TXT technology, the ASUS TPM module helps stop Trojan and malware
incursions. With Hypervisor active on start-up, users are protected from software
attacks and data stays safe from memory snooping.
80+ energy saving power supply
The TS300-E7/PS4 ships with an 80+ bronze power supply to reduce power loss
and power consumption, saving users money through lower energy bills.
RoHS and Energy Star compliance
Both product and packaging meet the strictest environmental standards in line
with the ASUS vision of creating green, environmentally-friendly and recyclable
technology to safeguard consumer health while minimizing ecological impact.
Designed for virtualization
Virtualization provides central management, reducing power consumption, cooling
costs and space requirements. With an onboard vertical USB connector designed
for VMWare® ESXi, it’s easy to make the most of virtualization.

Remote real-time access to servers with full control by keyboard, video monitor
and mouse (KVM) of a single local computer from anywhere at any time. In
addition, KVM function is based on BIOS-level access, therefore, even the server
OS is down, the KVM module can still work to provide around-the-clock remote
monitor and diagnosis through GUI (Web-based Graphical User Interface).
Advanced server management functions including “remote power on/off/reset”,
“remote hardware health monitoring” and “system event log”.
Allows administrators to share the date saved in a local drive (floppy, CD/
DVD-ROM, flash device, HDD) to target servers, which makes data-sharing
convenient.
We recommend to use LAN port 5 for server management.
