Oracle Sun Fire X4270

Vendor’s description: Not every server can meet the demands of a consolidated workload. Oracle’s proven expertise and breakthrough innovation can help your data center meet that challenge. Powered by the Turbo Boost and Hyper-Threading technologies of highperformance Intel Xeon processors 5500 series, the Sun Fire X4270 server is well suited to assisting consolidation initiatives by supporting numerous business applications, each in its own virtualized server environment. The density of the system—with large memory in a compact 2U form factor—also makes it perfect for horizontally scaled data center consolidation needs. Leveraging onboard integrated GbE ports with Intel I/O Acceleration; six x8 PCIe Gen 2 slots; and supporting 10 GbE, SAS, and Fibre Channel via optional PCIe cards ensure that the system offers top network connectivity for each virtualized server. And the server has the flexibility to enable you to choose between industry-leading virtualization offerings including Microsoft Hyper-V, Sun xVM, and VMware. The Sun Fire X4270 server offers savings and reliability, with an Integrated Lights Out Manager (ILOM) service processor handling fault isolation and error management to help ensure IT personnel will be informed of impending problems before they evolve into service interruptions. ILOM is integrable with many industry-leading management solutions, such as Sun xVM Ops Center software, and also enables standalone system management—providing a seamless fit with legacy resources if necessary. Availability is ensured with redundant, hot-swappable disks; fans; and power supplies, for maximal uptime.
