RS720-E9-RS8 is powered by 2nd generation Intel xeon scalable processors. RS720-E9-RS8 is built around 2nd generation intel xeon Scalable processors for incredible 2U server performance. , RS720-E9-RS8 delivers breakthrough performance with the latest Intel Optane™ DC memory with 88% more efficiency in I/O operations per second (IOPS) than the same configuration in SSDs. Powered by Intel’s latest Deep Learning Boost technology for enhanced deep learning, RS720-E9-RS8 achieves 3.1x the performance in ResNet-50 and SSD VGG-16 models, fully guaranteed processing capabilities of the new platform.
ASUS servers feature exclusive Performance Boost technology for best server performance and ensure flexibility by tailoring servers to meet workload requirements, giving you great control. than the server environment. This technology improves workloads by maximizing processor frequency and increasing capacity, making it ideal for time-sensitive applications such as financial services or central operations. data center. In the BIOS, you can choose from pre-configured server profiles that are optimized for specific workloads to maximize overall performance and reduce server configuration time.
Upgradable design to accommodate growing workloads
RS720-E9-RS8 is designed to be easily upgraded to meet the needs of evolving businesses and varying workloads. The option of six PCIe Gen3 x8 or three PCIe Gen3 x16 links is available to accommodate a standard half-length GPU, and there’s a slot in PCIe x16 for HBA/RAID cards to enable parallel computing.
The RS720-E9-RS8 also features multiple interface models for flexible storage configurations, including dual PCIe or SATA M.2 and a serial port OCuLink design with Intel VROC technology for four 2.5-inch NVMe SSDs. inches are interchangeable. Models with two additional NVMe SSD mounts are available at the rear of the system to accommodate up to six 2.5-inch NVMe SSDs.
Super fast connectivity for HPC applications. RS720-E9-RS8 is integrated with two Gigabit Ethernet ports and a PCIe slot for 100G high-speed LAN cards. In addition, the server supports one OCP 2.0 Mezzanine card, ideal for HPC applications that require low-latency, high-bandwidth network support to connect multiple nodes and clusters.
RS720-E9-RS8 features ASUS-exclusive thermal radar technology and environmental sensors located inside CPU, memory, NVMe, SSD, OCP mezzanine connector to monitor internal and external temperatures, control Fan dynamics tuning reduces fan power consumption by up to 20% and lowers total cost of ownership – ideal for data centers that handle extreme workloads.
RS720-E9-RS8 supports 80 Plus Titanium standard 850W redundant power supplies with over 96% efficiency, directly reducing operating and capital costs. The 1+1 power supply design allows the server to operate continuously even when one power source requires maintenance, thus ensuring uninterrupted operation.
Comprehensive IT infrastructure management. RS720-E9-RS8 integrates an iKVM module and is integrated with ASUS Control Center to support out-of-band and in-band control features for small and medium businesses.
The integrated ASMB9-iKVM module supports remote BIOS update, fan control, standalone KVM, video recording and BSOD capture, ensuring continuous remote monitoring and diagnostics – even when the operating system is down or offline – through a user-friendly graphical interface, based on compatibility with all popular web browsers.
ASUS Control Center (ACC) is a centralized and integrated IT system management platform for monitoring and controlling ASUS commercial products, including servers, workstations, and digital displays. ACC supports remote BIOS update, monitoring multiple systems via mobile devices, then with one click to update software, coordinate, support server management easier for any user. any IT infrastructure.
