Mini-ITX compact server board with multiple expandability options
P11C-I is a server motherboard based on the Intel® Xeon® E platform and Intel® C242 chipset offering dual server-class Intel® Ethernet and flexible expandability with M.2, six SATA 6G. The 6.7” x 6.7” Mini-ITX form factor can be easily integrated in short-depth chassis to greatly increase rack compute density.
The layout is rack-optimised placement where the CPU and memory are placed in a parallel arrangement directly behind the fan inlet to promote maximum cooling for excellent thermal efficiency.
Accelerated data-transfer speeds of up to 32Gbps with M.2
With PCIe 3.0 bandwidth, one M.2 supports up to 32Gbps data-transfer speeds with native NVMe — that's up to 5.3X faster than traditional SSDs. P11C-I also supports the very latest 2.5-inch NVMe SSDs for quick and easy setup.
High-speed mini-SAS HD connections
P11C-I comes with a mini-SAS HD connector that support up to four SATA for 6Gb/s connectivity with external devices and cleaner cable routing. P11C-I also supports ASUS PIKE II 3000 series, the latest enterprise storage solution, featuring support for 12Gb/s SAS storage and integrated RAID data protection. With ASUS PIKE cards, you can immediately improve the storage capacity and performance of P11C-I, making it a great upgrade option.
Dual Intel® I210AT Gigabit Ethernet
P11C-I features dual server-class Intel® Ethernet ports with the I210 controllers and teaming support that speed up the network bandwidth and the failover function ensures uninterrupted network connection. This suits virtualisation applications perfectly which requires ultrafast and reliable network.
TPM-M 2.0 ready
P11C-I supports TPM-M 2.0 with a 14-1 TPM header to securely store keys, digital certificates, passwords and data. It helps to enhance network security, protect digital identities, and ensure platform integrity.
Comprehensive IT infrastructure management
P11C-I features an optional embedded iKVM module and is bundled with ASUS Control Centre to provide comprehensive out-of-band and in-band management features for small and mid-size businesses.
The optional 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.
ASUS Control Centre (ACC) is a centralised 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.
With its power button located on the front I/O panel, P11C-I is designed to provide easier maintenance and deployment for diverse applications.
Quick initialisation guidance
P11C-I provides instant system information during initialisation as well as any unusual diagnostic results for more efficient IT operation and easy troubleshooting.
ASUS ProCool connector
ASUS ProCool is designed without hollow area, this enables lower impedance, facilitates faster heat dissipation, resulting in cooler operating temperature. Reduces power loss and increases cost savings.
