Z11PA-U12 is built on the latest 2nd Gen Intel Xeon Scalable processors to deliver higher per-core performance and six memory channels that provide 50% more memory bandwidth and capacity for 1.33X faster average system-level performance compared to previous-generation processors. Z11PA-U12 offers breakthrough performance with the latest Intel Optane™ DC persistent memory with an over 88% gain in input/output operations per second (IOPS) compared with the same configuration in SSD. Featuring the latest Intel Deep Learning Boost technology to enhance deep learning capabilities, Z11PA-U12 achieves a 3.1X performance improvement in the ResNet-50 and SSD VGG-16 models, fully demonstrating the inference capability of the new platform.
With 12 DIMM slots that support up to 3TB of fast DDR4-2666, 2400MHz 3DS ECC RDIMMs or LRDIMMs, Z11PA-U12 delivers industry-leading memory capability for your business.
With two native PCI Express 3.0 bandwidth, M.2 supports up to 16Gb/s data-transfer speeds and up to 2280 NGFF. It is the perfect choice for an operating system drive, making your whole PC work that much faster.
Z11PA-U12 features dual onboard OCuLink to provide efficient port-to-port connection with most OCuLink-supported NVMe devices, eliminating the need for PCIe transaction cards.
Z11PA-U12 comes with three mini-SAS HD connectors that support up to 13 SATA ports each for high-speed 6Gb/s connectivity with external devices and cleaner cable routing.
Z11PA-U12 features an embedded iKVM module and is bundled with ASUS Control Center software to provide comprehensive in-band and out-of-band management features for small and mid-size businesses:
ASUS Control Center (ACC) is a centralized and integrated IT management platform for monitoring and controlling ASUS commercial products, including servers, workstations and digital signage. ACC enables remote BIOS updates, monitoring of multiple systems via mobile devices, and one-click software updates and dispatching, allowing easier server management for any IT infrastructure.
The embedded ASMB9-iKVM module supports remote BIOS updates, fan control, standalone KVMs, video recording, and BSOD capture, providing around-the-clock remote monitoring and diagnostics — even if the operating system is down or offline — through a user-friendly, web-based graphical interface that works with all major browsers.
Z11PA-U12 features quick initialization guidance that enables users to realize the system initialization state in seconds. It provides instant system information including the BMC firmware version, system series number, memory error messages and any unusual diagnostic results for improved and more efficient IT operation.
