New line of the x86 servers from Oracle Sun

8 years, 4 months ago

Burn down with a verb the sun prophet!

Quite recently I wrote in comments to Tech Days that at Oracle with Sun two options, "all or nothing", that is either gain, or absorption to the level of specialized solutions for Oracle DB (such as Oracle Sun DB Machine).
First all and went, disorder and swaying, silence of Oracle, total absence of the adequate answer from representatives of Sun, vanity, delays with deliveries, even with pricing.
However, Sun Fire x2270 M2, upgraded version for work with Intel processors of the Xeon 56xx series is born after a while.
What more surprised, Oracle Sun began to sell briquettes for hard drives for these systems (what was not under leadership of Sun earlier, it was necessary to look for on eBay).
As a result in $9500 it is possible to receive the 24th tredovy system on 12 kernels of Intel Xeon X5660 with 48 gigabytes of ECC REG DDR of 3 1066 RAM, support and any hard drives which are on sale (but not drain for $700 for 1 TB or $1300 for 2 TB 7200 SATA hard drives) in shops for quite modest digit.
However, there was an announcement of a new series of systems based on x86 from division of Oracle Sun just 2 days ago.
In addition to the expected upgraded version of the running Sun Fire x4170 system under marking of M2, blade of Sun Blade x6270 M2 which in fact modifed platforms for work with processors of the Intel Xeon 56xx series, and also a blade storage, network adapters, switches and virtualizator for blades, there were several more interesting products.
Details under a cat.
