2U4N design with great scalability for compute-intensive workloads
RS720Q-E9-RS8-S is the ideal server solution for compute-intensive workloads that require scalability, density and performance, including high-performance computing (HPC), data analytics, datacenter operations and private cloud applications. Featuring a modular 2U chassis containing four server nodes that handle twice the workload per rack unit, RS720Q-E9-RS8-S delivers incredible performance with reduced space requirement and operating costs.
Robust native storage interface support
RS720Q-E9-RS8-S natively supports eight SATA and SAS drives as well as up to eight direct-connected NVMe SSDs for high-speed data access. IT administrators can also add 2.5 HDDs or SSDs to the front hot-swap bays for even more storage. Additional HBA cards are not required, leaving expansion slots available for other components.
Comprehensive IT infrastructure management solution
RS720Q-E9-RS8-S features an embedded ASMB9-iKVM module and is bundled with ASUS Control Center software to provide comprehensive in-band and out-of-band management.
Powered by the latest 2nd Gen Intel Xeon Scalable processors
Each node of RS720Q-E9-RS8-S is engineered to run two of the latest 2nd Gen Intel Xeon Scalable processors, featuring up to total 28 cores per processor and 165W power consumption. This 4-node server features 48 memory slots in total that fit up to 6TB of DDR4 2666 memory for intensive computing. RS720Q-E9-RS8-S offers breakthrough performance with the latest Intel Optane™ DC persistent memory with an over 88% gain in input/output operations per second (IOPS) compared with the same configuration in SSD.
Exclusive thermal radar technology for energy efficiency
RS720Q-E9-RS8-S features a smart Thermal Radar design with more ambient thermal sensors for the CPU, memory, NVMe SSD, PSU and front-panel board that provide improved temperature monitoring and enable dynamic fan speed adjustment for better power efficiency. This smart thermal design reduces fan power consumption by up to 20% and eliminates the power-sharing board for improved efficiency and lower operation costs.
Simplified maintenance and management
With accessible computing nodes that each have their own power button, IT administrators can easily swap malfunctioning nodes without affecting the operation of other nodes.
A visible Q-Code (port 80) LED display provides easy monitoring of the entire boot process, from power-on until the operating system loads.
Quick initialization guidance
Instant system initialization information and diagnostic results are available for efficient IT operation and easy troubleshooting.
