Oracle Sun SPARC Enterprise M4000

Vendor’s description: With the Sun SPARC Enterprise M4000 servers, you can protect your IT investment with no forklift upgrades and scale out as needed. The option to mix and match different speeds/generations of SPARC64 processors in existing and new M-series servers uniquely protects investments and enables easy and low-cost upgrades not offered by IBM or HP. In addition, mainframe-class RAS features come standard in the Sun SPARC Enterprise M4000 server, including automatic recovery with instruction retry, up to 256 GB of system memory error- correcting code (ECC) protection with extended ECC support, guaranteed data path integrity, total SRAM and register protection, and configurable memory mirroring. In addition, the disks, power supply, and fans are redundant and hot-swappable, while the I/O cards are also hot-swappable. Many features unique to the Oracle Solaris 10 OS enhance system reliability even further, including Predictive Self-Healing, which automatically identifies and isolates faults and provides specific guidance when action is required. For more flexibility, the Sun SPARC Enterprise M4000 server supports up to two Dynamic Domains with a high level of granularity: CPU board-level domains for large, mission-critical workloads requiring maximum isolation, and single-socket-level domains for finer granularity with high isolation. For maximum flexibility, each system can support thousands of Oracle Solaris Containers, which can create many private execution environments within a single Oracle Solaris OS instance.
