Enjoy Server Performance with Compact Design
The ASUS Z9NA-D6 serverboard highly integrates various server features into an ATX compact form factor, based on dual up-to-date Intel® Xeon® E5-2400 series processors and Intel® C602-A chipset. Through innovative ASUS design, this board is able to fit into ATX case and ATX power supply. Moreover, it features enhanced storage expandability, all high-quality conductive polymer capacitors, digital power solution and high manageability via the latest ASMB6-iKVM and ASWM enterprise. All of the above make it an ideal foundation for SMB general purpose host servers, AP servers, mail servers, storage servers, and even as an entry workstation.
ATX Case and Power Supply Compatible
The Z9NA-D6 server board supports dual Intel® Xeon® server processors in a compact size. It follows standard ATX mounting hole locations and is also ready for ATX power supplies*. The design makes this board able to fit into server rack and tower chassis as well as standard PC ATX cases. Users looking for access to server performance with easily-available PC components will find what they're looking for here.
Complete Storage Solutions
The Z9NA-D6 server board ships with two SATA 6Gbps ports and provides an SAS 6Gbps storage upgrade path via ASUS PIKE technology. The ASUS optional PIKE provides slim-sized and flexible storage options, direct SAS RAID upgrades can be achieved via a unique slot — without sacrificing expansion capability. SATA DOM (Disk on Module) support, which is widely used in various embedded server applications, benefits customers building a diverse range of appliance servers. These technologies enable faster data retrieval, while also creating enhanced storage expandability.
Extremely Long-Lasting and Ultra-Reliable
100% Ultra-durable solid state capacitors offer ultra durability, improved lifespan, and enhanced thermal capabilities compared to traditional capacitors. These long-life solid state capacitors can sustain 5,000 hours at 105°C ambient temperature, or 500,000 hours of operation at 65°C ambient temperature, further ensuring the Z9NA-D6 remains reliable running even in extreme environments.
Digital Power Solution
All-new digital CPU power controls work perfectly together to match digital power signal (SVID) requests from the CPU, with ultra-fast sensing and response efficiently delivering precision power. Accurate delivery reduces waste, and provides more stable CPU Vcore voltages. The Z9NA-D6 voltage regulation manages up to 89% peak power efficiency, with 85%+ during most normal operation. This ensures high power efficiency for the entire system to help customers save more electrical bills.
Comprehensive Server Management Solution: ASMB6-iKVM and ASWM Enterprise
The ASMB6-iKVM upgrade kit enables dashboard system health monitoring, remote power on/off and control, virtual media over LAN, and management LAN fail-over support. In addition, the ASMB6 function is based on BIOS-level access, so even if the server operating system is down or off-line, the KVM module can still provide round-the-clock remote monitoring and diagnosis through a user-friendly web-based graphical interface through all major browsers. ASWM Enterprise software provides one-to-multiple centralized management including BIOS flash, remote control, power control through a colorful, graphical, and informative interface.
Up-to-Date Intel Xeon® Processor E5-2400 Support
The motherboard supports the latest Intel Xeon® processor E5-2400 product family in LGA 1356 package with integrated memory controller to supports three-channel (6 DIMM per CPU) DDR3 memory.
System builders can also choose between robust server-grade DDR3 RDIMM/LRDIMM and ECC UDIMM, and more mainstream, widely available DDR3 non-ECC UDIMM. Additionally, with PCI Express 3.0 support ensures Z9NA-D6 to meet various performance demanding application. By supporting different processor, memory types and PCI Express 3.0 cards, the Z9NA-D6 becomes a versatile MB to cover a wide range of server and entry workstation.
