ASUS RS500-E8-RS4 V2
High-efficiency cooling and
lower power consumption
RS500-E8-RS4 V2 internal layout is optimized for rackmounted configurations, with optimized fan speed
control and an adjustable-fan-curve feature. Advanced
air-ducting technology allows RS500-E8-RS4 V2 to
work at high operating temperature and with an 80
PLUS® Gold power-supply unit (PSU) up to 94% VR
ASUS PIKE II & 12G SAS Integration
ASUS PIKE II offers the latest 12Gb/s SAS together with PCI-E 3.0 solution. While ASUS latest
12Gb/s SAS doubles the data rate running at twice the speed of the previous generation, PCI-E 3.0
offers high reliability and faster speed connection. ASUS PIKE II meets user needs with support for
6Gb/s SATA and 12Gb/s SAS storage and integrated RAID data protection. Just placing the PIKE II
card can immediately enlarge the capacity, improve the performance, and strengthen the signaling,
making it the great upgrade option. Additionally, multiple HBAs allow multi-paths which improve
over performance.
2+1 expansion
RS500-E8-RS4 V2 has high expandability with 2+1 expansion slots in a configuration: that means one
PCI-E Gen3x 16 slot, one PCI-E Gen3x 8 slot, plus one PCI-E Gen3x 8 slot OCP Mezzanine card.
This flexible expansion offers diverse applications in storage and networking to meeting the demands
of future expansion.
Premium components for premium efficiency
RS500-E8-RS4 V2 benefits from premium components hand-chosen and carefully arranged by ASUS
engineers to provide premium efficiency. With ASUS Beat Thermal Chokes, Dr. MOS and 1+1
Redundant 770W 80PLUS Gold Power Supply, it delivers great durability and up to 94% power
efficiency. The 1+1 Redundant 770W 80PLUS Gold Power Supply design allows the server to keep
working even if one power supply requires maintenance, enabling uninterrupted operation. RS500-E8RS4 V2 has durable 12k solid capacitors that are able to withstand up to 12,000 hours of high ambient
temperatures. These 12K capacitors also boast lower equivalent series resistance (ESR) for increased
efficiency and minimal heat generation.
Instant Deployment
RS500-E8-RS4 V2 includes a front-side VGA port, so you’re able to connect a display quickly and
easily. RS500-E8-RS4 V2 also benefits from an exclusive tool-less rail kit design, easing deployment
for systems administrators for increased efficiency.
The server also carries an asset tag for fast identification. RS500-E8-RS4 V2 also offers great freedom
when it comes to the choice of operating system drive type and placement, with both M.2 slot for
independent OS available.
Easy Diagnostic and Management
RS500-E8-RS4 V2 has a built-in Q-Code/port 80 LED display LED for simple monitoring of the
entire boot process, from the early hardware-awakening stages to the launch of the operating system
and beyond. A bright CPU and Memory LED on board lets you check the server’s status instantly.
With the Intelligent Platform Management Interface (IPMI) 2.0-compliant ASMB8-iKVM module in
RS500-E8-RS4 V2, you’ll be able to monitor, control and manage the server remotely.
