Asustek launches quad-LAN server motherboard
Press release, August 9; Joseph Tsai, DIGITIMES [Thursday 9 August 2007]

To accommodate requirements in mass storage and fast transfer speeds in intranet applications of SMBs (small and medium business), Asustek Computer recently launched its P5M2-E/4L quad-LAN motherboard designed for servers.

The P5M2-E/4L, with a built in quad-LAN that integrates four high-speed Gigabit LAN ports into a single one, provides almost four times the transfer bandwidth. Even if an error occurs in one port, the network connection will not be affected in any way, according to Asustek.

Strict networking performance tests have shown that the quad-LAN of the P5M2-E/4L can improve transfer performances up to 390% in comparison to a single LAN. Additionally, the four ports can also be used in individual sub-nets to provide secure data and smoother transfers.

In terms of storage capacity and data reliability, the P5M2-E/4L has two built-in 4-port SATA controllers with doubled quad-SATA RAID protection. The P5M2-E/4L offers more than 4TB (terabyte) of storage expandability with reliable data protection, according to Asustek.

The Asustek P5M2-E/4L motherboard comes in two versions the, P5M2P-E/4L and P5M2-E/4L.
