Press release, March 24; Joseph Tsai, DIGITIMES [Monday 24 March 2008]

Asustek Computer recently launched its latest 1U server, the RS100-E5/PI2, a quad-core/dual-core Intel Xeon 3000 series platform, which supports Intel 45nm processors with a FSB up to 1333MHz.

As a uni-processor server, the RS100-E5/PI2 provides 4-dimm slots to support up to 8GB DDR2 800/667 ECC memory, while offering RAID 0, 1 functions for cost-effective data protection.

Equipped with dual PCI Express (PCIe) Gigabit Ethernet functions, the RS100-E5/PI2 is capable of higher bandwidth aggregation and reliable networking based on failover and load balance functions.

An optional Asustek ASMB3-SOL Card (out-of-band monitor/troubleshooting) provides security and extends remote offline serviceability functions with IPMI2.0 Serial Over LAN standards – significantly saving MIS efforts for maintenance and minimizing system downtime.

The server is an ideal platform for home users, SMB, SOHO, IDC, telecom and client systems that require quiet working environments.
