Vendor’s description: Uniquely protect IT investments with the Sun SPARC Enterprise M5000 servers. Sun offers no forklift upgrades and you can mix and match different speeds/generations of SPARC64 processors in existing and new M-series servers. Benefit from Sun’s long term SPARC Enterprise road map and "future-proof" investments with the Sun SPARC Enterprise M5000 server. What’s more, many mainframe class RAS features come standard in the Sun SPARC Enterprise M5000 server, including automatic recovery with instruction retry, up to 512 GB of system memory with error-correcting code (ECC) protection and extended ECC support, guaranteed data path integrity, total SRAM and register protection, and configurable memory mirroring. Plus, the disks, power supply, and fans are redundant and hot-swappable, and the I/O cards are hot-swappable as well. To enhance flexibility, the Sun SPARC Enterprise M5000 server supports up to four Dynamic Domains CPU board-level domains for large, mission-critical workloads that depend on maximum isolation, and single-socket-level domains for finer granularity with high isolation. For additional flexibility, each system can support thousands of Oracle Solaris Containers, which enable a single Oracle Solaris 10 OS instance to support many isolated execution environments.
