ASUS RS-500-E7/PS4

Introduction & Features

The RS500-E7/PS4 is a space-saving 1U server featuring high memory and storage capacity, flexible RAID, 2+1 expansion slots, an 80PLUS Gold power supply, and quad LAN. It supports new Intel® Sandy Bridge Socket B2/LGA 1356 processors, and has 12 DIMM memory slots. This allows the RS500-E7/PS4 to provide high computing power for customers that demand an extensive range of applications. The RS500-E7/PS4 has been designed for telecom server centers, IDC, and all small and medium businesses facing space constraints.

Cost effective high performance with great expandability and flexibility

Optimized cooling design
Front-parallel CPU and memory placement guides smooth airflow throughout the chassis, while intelligent fan control technology adjusts fan speeds automatically based on system load.

Flexible 2+1 expansion in a 1U chassis
Despite 1U space requirements, the RS500-E7/PS4 manages to offer two PCI Express 3.0 x16 slots and one extra slot dedicated to exclusive ASUS PIKE card, helping users with better server integration.

Up to 92% power efficiency
Maintaining the ASUS commitment to environmental protection, the RS500-E7/PS4 is equipped with a 600W 80 PLUS Gold power supply to reduce power loss and consumption. As such, it lowers power bills to save users money with up to 92% power efficiency.

Innovative storage and RAID
The RS500-E7/PS4 supports optional ASUS PIKE RAID upgrade kits. With a PIKE card, users can integrate server functions into data security, and upgrade from SATA to SAS storage without occupying the two PCI Express 3.0 slots. This gives users better flexibility through more storage options.

High availability and reliability
The RS500-E7/PS4 uses hot-swap features for high availability and easy upgrades, allowing users to replace drive modules with no hassles. Additionally, the proprietary ASUS anti-vibration fan module cage provides superior cooling with no reliability compromise.

Quad LAN support
Four LAN ports provide high networking bandwidth with load balance and fault tolerance functions. The server supports ASUS and most other available 10Gb/s LAN cards for extra-fast networking.

Optional ASMB6-iKVM remote management upgrade kit
The exclusive ASUS ASMB6-iKVM enables dashboard system health monitoring, remote power on/off control, virtual media over LAN, automatic video recording, and network bonding support. In addition, the ASMB6 function is based on BIOS-level access, so even if the server operating system is down, the KVM module can still provide round-the-clock remote monitoring and diagnosis through a user-friendly graphical user interface.
