High Speed Storage Server with Extreme Performance and Expandability

RS720-E8-RS24-ECP is a 2U rack server that’s perfectly built for high-capacity storage with extreme computing performance. With M.2 slot and two rear hot-swappable 2.5-inch SSD bays for convenient operating system (OS) installation and engineered with premium components for premium efficiency, RS720-E8-RS24-ECP is ideal for datacenters and other enterprise applications.

High Speed 2U storage capacity and additional OS kernal disk

RS720-E8-RS24-ECP is equipped with 24 SAS/SATA 2.5-inch drive bays. The hot-swappable design provides non-stop high availability, making short work of maintenance. RS720-E8-RS24-ECP also offers great freedom when it comes to the choice of operating system drive type and placement, with M.2 slot and two rear hot-swappable 2.5-inch SSD bays available. And because 2.5-inch drive bays offer faster transferring rate, RS720-E8-RS24-ECP is ideal for data analytics, cloud computing, data management, and business-critical workloads.

5 Expansions

RS720-E8-RS24-ECP has high expandability with five expansion slots meeting the demands of future expansion. There are three PCI-E x16 slot (Gen3 x16 link), one PCI-E x8 slot (Gen3 x8 link), and one PCI-E x8 slot (Gen3 x4 link). This flexible expansion offers diverse applications in storage and networking to meet the demands of future expansion and high scalability in a 2U case. ASUS PIKE II and ASUS 10G LAN card are also available for diverse applications.

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.

Advanced cooling

There are two groups of fans and each group has two fans. One group of fans is dedicatedly for CPUs and the fans change the speed accordingly to meet different demands. The other group is dedicatedly for the rest of serverboard. In this way, RS720-E8-RS24-ECP offers excellent thermal solution, heat dissipation and energy savings. It’s even possible to adjust the fan speed manually, so you have flexible choice to meet different working environment.

Premium components for premium efficiency

RS720-E8-RS24-ECP 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 800W 80 PLUS CRPS Platinum power supplies, it delivers great durability and up to 94% power efficiency. The 1+1 power supply design allows the server to keep working even if one power supply requires maintenance, enabling uninterrupted operation.

Complete Remote Server Management

With the Intelligent Platform Management Interface (IPMI) 2.0-compliant ASMB8-iKVM module in RS720-E8-RS24-ECP, you’ll be able to monitor, control and manage the server remotely. ASUS Server Web-based Management (ASWM) Enterprise has a simple and intuitive web-based graphical user interface. Save time and effort by flashing the BIOS remotely, use the new screen-recording function for quick and easy trouble-shooting and exploit the many efficiency benefits of one-to-many centralized management afforded by ASWM Enterprise.
