The ASUS P10S-M is an Intel® Greenlow platform server board based on the Intel® C232 chipset, providing dual server-class Intel® Ethernet, native 6 SATA 6G, and 4 PCI Express 3.0 which can fulfill various requirements. The 9.6” x 9.6” micro ATX form factor can be easily integrated in short-depth chassis to greatly increase rack compute density.
Next-Gen Storage – NVMe Support
Next-Gen Storage technology – NVMe, is where the industry is headed. By taking new NVM technology closer to the CPU with the benefits of less latency and higher maximum bandwidth, NVMe solution is the fastest internal storage interface today. To implement NVMe application on P10S-M, users can directly plug the PCIeNVMe devices in through the ASUS-made PCIe to U.2 adapter (ASUS PCIE-NVME1). By using mini-SAS HD to min-SAS HD cable or mini-SAS HD to SFF-8639 cable, the ASUS-made PCIe to U.2 adapter offers flexible NVMe upgrade package on different usage scenarios.
Optional PIKE II 3×08 Series SAS 12Gb/s solution
ASUS PIKE II 3×08 series is the latest 12Gb/s SAS and PCI-E 3.0 high reliability
enterprise storage solution. It meets users’ needs by supporting 12Gb/s SAS
storage and various RAID level data protection. Just placing the PIKE II card,
P10S Series can immediately enlarge the capacity and improve the performance, making it the great upgrade option.
ASUS Platinum-Grade Power Efficiency
The ASUS P10S-M server board is designed with the platinum power solution and hand-chosen components that provide titanium efficiency up to 92%. The platinum power solution consists of 3 pillars to achieve 92% platinum efficiency: 12K Ultra Longevity Solid Capacitor, Beat Thermal Choke III and Digi+ VRM. 12K solid capacitors which are able to withstand up to 1,200,000 hours of temperatures as high as 65C (12K hours@105C). The 3rd generation Beat Thermal Choke with lower DCR and result in 3C-lower choke temperatures enhance power efficiency. ASUS DIGI+ VRM is digital VR controller which precisely provides the accurate voltage/current that the CPU requires to reduce switching loss. Therefore, using in non-stop server machine running 24 hours per day, it will reduce electronic cost for customers in this generation products.
Serviceability – Quick Boot
The ASUS P10 Series features quick initialization guidance which let users realize system initialization state in seconds; Turn on the power button comes with 3 key information showing on the screen at the same time: (1) progress bar showcases the booting status, (2) BMC IP address if ASMB module is mounted on the server and (3) 2-digit POST code messages are available to give users a total understanding of startup process and to clearly indicate boot-up status which is easy for troubleshooting.
Complete remote server management
The optional IPMI 2.0-compliant ASMB8-iKVM module enables remote BIOS updates, backup and restore configurations, SNMP agent support (MIBs files), audit log, and BIOS post code. With out-of-band management ASMB8-iKVM provides round-the-clock remote monitoring and diagnosis even if the server operating system is down or offline, and all through a user-friendly web-based graphical interface that works with all major browsers. In addition, ASWM Enterprise software provides one-to-multiple centralized management including BIOS flash, software dispatch, task scheduler, remote control and power control, via colorful and informative graphical interface.
