ASUS RS700A-E11-RS12U Hardware Overview

The RS700A-E11-RS12U is a 1U all-flash dual socket server powered by the new EPYC 7003 series processors, supporting 32 DIMM, one dual slot GPU, 12 NVMe, 3PCIe 4.0 slots, OCP 3.0, M.2 and ASMB10-iKVM server management.

 

CPU

This server is powered by the new AMD EPYC 7003 series processor which highlights up to 32MB of L3 cache per core to increase analytic speeds and up to 25% generational performance gains in mid-tier CPUs.

 

PCIe 4.0 Expansion

The RS700A-E11 comes PCIe 4.0 ready to support a wide range of graphics, storage and networking capabilities as a flexible and scalable solution. PCIe 4.0 delivers double the speed of PCIe 3.0 with 16GT/s bandwidth. This provides lower TCO, better lane scalability and backwards compatibility.

 

GPU and FPGA Support

 

ASUS RS700A-E11 features a powerful GPU architecture in a 1U system which supports one dual slot GPU such as the NVIDIA A100, for ease of scalability for HPC and AI demands and security of virtual environment workloads.

This server is Xilinx Alveo-qualified servers to optimally accelerate workloads across cloud, on-premises data centres and hybrid cloud environments.

 

CPU-balanced Architecture

The new server introduces a CPU-balanced architecture that enables secure and optimal CPU performance efficiency. Let’s dive deeper, this is a result of the architecture extending the full bandwidth to the single or dual CPU configuration for more computing capability and overall power efficiency.

 

Modular Design

In addition, the modular design of the server makes it simpler to scale-up your configuration to meet future data centre workloads. Featuring an onboard LAN module design that enables large scale networking bandwidth for enterprise of data centres through a replaceable LAN ports.

Scalable Storage Solution

The RS700A-E11-RS12U is a highly scalable storage solution that supports up to 12 all-flash NVMe drives on front panel extensive storage and high-throughput performance.

  • 12 NVMe/SAS/SATA
  • 8 NVMe + 4 SATA/SAS
  • 4 NVMe + 8 SATA/SAS

Cooling Solution

Data centres omit much heat due to the demand of high performance processors, GPUs or memory to run any given workload. However, it’s good to hear that this server comes air or liquid-cooled,  with Asetek’s Direct-to-Chip liquid cooling technology that optimises TCO for data centres through lower power-usage effectiveness.

Enhanced Security 

In terms of security, the RS700A-E11 integrates PFR FPGA as the platform Root-of-Trust solution which enforces prevention from hackers interfering or gaining access to infrastructure. Furthermore, the server supports Trusted Platform Module 2.0 (TPM 2.0) which provides hardware security via integrated cryptographic keys.

 
 

OCP 3.0

Features the latest OCP NIC 3.0 mezzanine card with PCIe 4.0 bandwidth for accelerated time-to-market network and speeds of up to 200 Gbps and low latency.
