Smart compact 1U server
As always, ASUS works hard to deliver servers that offer optimal performance. In this generation, the ASUS RS100-E8-PI2 supports the new Intel® Xeon® E3-1200 v3 processor family, and can operate with great stability at up to 40-degree centigrade sustained ambient temperatures. It is also features an 80 PLUS Bronze power supply for enhanced energy savings and lower power bills. In addition, it offers advanced I/O options, a user-friendly design, and complete remote server management through ASWM Enterprise and ASMB7-iKVM. All of those features make the RS100-E8-PI2 the best server for SMBs.
The latest Intel processors
The RS100-E8-PI2 is ready for new-generation Intel Xeon 22nm processors, which deliver a significant performance improvement over previous-generation CPUs.
Ultra-quiet and energy-saving
The RS100-E8-PI2 delivers excellent noise mitigation, lowest as 30 dB (idle mode), which is lower than the noise output of an average projector at 42dB. It also ships with an 80 PLUS Bronze power supply to reduce power loss and power consumption, helping consumers save on energy bills.
Flexible deployment options in a compact rack form factor
With a short 15” chassis, the RS100-E8-PI2 easily fits in diverse rack cases, largely increasing density per rack to save space. In addition, it offers the ideal size for IT deployment, which also saves considerable cost when setting up a data center.
PCI Express 3.0-ready for powerful expandability
The RS100-E8-PI2 ships with one PCI-E x16 slot (Gen3 x8 link) designed to accommodate the power of full-height add-on components such as 10Gb/s LAN cards. PCI Express 3.0 provides unprecedented data speeds, combined with the convenience of seamless backward compatibility with PCI Express 2.0.
Comprehensive Windows RAID support
Embedded RAID allows the RS100-E8-PI2 to support Intel® Rapid Storage Technology Enterprise for Windows, improving data protection and increasing storage reliability. Using RAID, servers set up with the latest Windows server-grade operating system run with improved fault tolerance compared to non-RAID or single-drive systems.
Optimized user experience design
A front VGA port provides greater convenience and flexibility, allowing customers to connect a monitor from the front. There is also an “asset tag” on every RS100-E8-PI2 for better identification within a server cluster. ASUS further furnishes several choices for OS drive placement, such as SSD and SATA DOM cages, plus internal Type A USB.
Comprehensive remote management
ASUS presents the most complete remote server control, including out of band ASMB7-iKVM and in-band ASWM Enterprise. Out-of-band ASMB7-iKVM offers LAN management, while in-band ASWM Enterprise provides “one on many” usage. IT professionals don’t have to check servers one by one, but instead can use ASWM Enterprise to monitor the status of all servers from a friendly graphical user interface.
