This powerful machine is designed with a focus on extensive storage options, featuring four hot-swap drives on the front panel and an additional M.2 slot. In terms of connectivity, it boasts a PCIe 5.0 slot along with a proprietary PCIe 4.0 slot, ensuring higher bandwidth. For power efficiency, it is equipped with redundant 450 W 80 PLUS Platinum power supplies. Network connectivity is robust with dual Intel I210-AT gigabit Ethernet ports supporting teaming. The server management is enhanced by ASUS ASMB11-iKVM out-of-band management with an ASPEED AST2600 controller.
ASUS RS300-E12-PS4 server
The ASUS RS300-E12-PS4 server shares many features with the RS300-E12-RS4 model, including the processor, storage capabilities, PCIe slots, Ethernet options, management controller and security features. However, it sets itself apart with a focus on simplified system maintenance, facilitated by a 350 W 80 PLUS® Gold power supply. This model balances performance with energy efficiency, making it a suitable choice for businesses seeking a streamlined server solution.
ASUS P13R-M/10G-2T server motherboard
The ASUS P13R-M/10G-2T server motherboard enhances connectivity with dual-port Intel X710-AT2 gigabit Ethernet and includes an M.2 slot for improved OS boot speed. It maintains the core features of RS300-E12-series servers, including support for Intel Xeon E-2400-series processors, ample storage options and ASUS ASMB11-iKVM for efficient management.
ASUS P13R-M server motherboard
The ASUS P13R-M server motherboard mirrors the key specifications of RS300-E12-PS4, focusing on similar processor support, storage flexibility, and network capabilities. It distinguishes itself with a compact form factor and a 350 W 80 PLUS Gold power supply, making it an efficient choice for businesses needing a motherboard solution with parallel capabilities to the RS4 and PS4 servers.
Comprehensive IT-infrastructure management
RS300-E12 servers and P13R-M server motherboards feature ASUS ASMB11-iKVM, an embedded iKVM module, and are optionally equipped with ASUS Control Center (ACC) — offering comprehensive out-of-band and in-band management features tailored for small and mid-size businesses. ASMB11-iKVM supports remote BIOS updates, fan control, standalone KVMs, video recording and BSOD capture, providing around-the-clock remote monitoring and diagnostics. This functionality remains accessible even if the operating system is down or offline, through a user-friendly web-based graphical interface compatible with all major browsers.
ACC further enhances IT infrastructure management, centralizing and integrating monitoring and control for ASUS commercial products, including servers, workstations and digital signage. ACC enables remote BIOS updates, mobile device system monitoring and simplified server management through one-click software updates and dispatching.
5th Gen Intel Xeon Scalable processor
The latest 5th Gen Intel Xeon processor range unleashes up to 21% average general-purpose performance gain and up to 36% average performance per watt gain across workloads compared to the previous generation, delivers up to 29% higher training and up to 42% higher inference performance., With an LGA-4677 socket, the new CPU series seamlessly continues the legacy of its predecessor, with simple drop-in compatibility. Boasting eight DDR5-5600 memory channels supporting up to 2 TB capacity, 80 PCI Express 5.0 lanes with CXL 1.1support, and a 350 W TDP for 1P and 2P configurations, the all-new Xeon Scalable is an innovation powerhouse. Upgrade with ASUS today to elevate operational efficiency, and data security and reduce costs — ready for the future of computing.
