Flexible Expansion For Better Storage & Networking
RS500-E9-PS4 features one PCIe x16 and one PCIe x8 slots to deliver parallel computing power and one OCP 2.0 Mezzanine connector to support high-speed LAN card. This flexibility supports diverse storage and networking applications and ensures future expandability and high scalability in a 1U server.
RS500-E9-PS4 fits four 3.5-inch hot-swappable 12Gbps SAS or 6Gbps SATA drives. Two M.2 slots accommodate 22110-size SSDs with support for additional OS storage and PCIe Gen3 x4 bandwidth — 5.3X faster than 6 Gb/s SATA III — for faster boot speeds.
Exclusive Thermal Radar Technology For Energy Efficiency
RS500-E9-PS4 features ASUS-exclusive Thermal Radar technology with ambient sensors placed in CPU, memory, NVMe, SSD, OCP mezzanine connector for internal and external temperature monitoring, and dynamic fan-curve adjustment, which lowers fan power consumption by up to 20% and reduces total cost of ownership — ideal for data centers with extreme workloads.
