ASUS optional PIKE provides slim-sized and flexible storage options. SAS RAID upgrades can be achieved directly via a unique slot-without sacrificing expansion capability. Also, P8B-E/4L supports the latest SAS2 6Gb/s storage through PIKE interface, doubling transmission speed of SAS 3Gb/s. ASUS PIKE 2008 supports RAID 0, 1, 10 and 1E; PIKE 2008/IMR supports RAID 0, 1, 10, 5 and 50; PIKE 2108 is a hardware RAID solution, which can support high performance RAID 0, 1, 10, 5, 6, 50 and 60. With the fast explode of internet traffic, the P8B-E/4L equipped Intel GbE LAN controllers with IPv6 support and backward compatible with IPv4 protocol. With IPv6 ready support, customer can deploy new systems seamlessly work with existing Ethernet environment. With teaming function, not only doubles the bandwidth compared to most dual LAN servers but supports Fault Tolerance technology. Also, the Load Balance handles network traffics delicately which is good at enhancing network functionality. The optional ASMB5-iKVM provides remotely real-time and full control via accessing to the system based on BIOS-level keyboard, video monitor, and mouse (KVM over Ethernet) from any local computer anywhere, anytime. The P8B-E/4L supports wide-range mainstream server and client OS, including Windows 2008 R2, Windows 7, Cent OS, redhat, SuSE Linux and so on to meet the demand of different customers. To meet the trend of large capacity hard disk drive, P8B-E/4L equips UEFI BIOS. The UEFI BIOS supports the latest GPT (GUID Partition Table) partition format and backward compatible with legacy MBR (Master Boot Record) partition format, users can easily and flexibly manage very large capacity hard disk drive or partition, ex: single hard disk or single partition larger than 2.2TB.
