Sun SPARC Enterprise T5440
Sun Microsystems recently launched the Sun SPARC Enterprise T5440 4-socket server, based on the UltraSPARC T2 Plus processor. The Sun SPARC Enterprise T5440 extends the price and performance efficiency of Sun's chip multi-threading (CMT) architecture to midrange computing.
The Sun SPARC Enterprise T5440 Server, the industry's first quad socket CMT system, packs a massively scalable 256 threads, ½ TB memory design into just a 4RU form factor. For the first time, you get the scalability and reliability of traditional midrange systems, while enjoying the breakthrough performance, eco efficiency and cost effectiveness of Sun's proven open-source CMT architecture. Sun's new massively scalable midrange system can virtualize applications and consolidate existing workloads into a single server and also provide ample headroom to handle future computing requirements as customers' needs grow.
In numerous benchmarks, the Sun SPARC Enterprise T5440 outperforms competitors' products, and can deliver up to 4 times the performance, at 1/5 the price of competitive systems and uses a fraction of the energy of servers with conventional designs.
With the introduction of the Sun SPARC Enterprise T5440, the next generation of midrange computing is here!
