  • Minimize real estate costs with the leading compact system design.
  • Boost application performance and reduce power consumption with Oracle’s Sun FlashFire technology.
  • Take advantage of consistent system manageability through Oracle ILOM, which is included in every system.

TheOracle Sun Server X2-4, powered by up to four Intel Xeon processor E7-4800 product family CPUs and with up to 1 TB of memory and up to 3.6 TB of internal storage, it is the best platform for enterprise consolidation and virtualization for business applications. It is the industry’s leading compact and expandable enterprise-class 4-socket x86 server with a best-in-class performance, power efficiency, density, and a highly expandable design. It delivers outstanding virtualization capacity to increase server utilization and reduce the data center footprint through a 3 RU enclosure.

Following the previous generation server, the Oracle Sun Server X2-4 continues to offer two flash integration options for application and database acceleration: Sun Flash Acceleration F20 PCIe cards and Solid State Drives (SSDs). These flash options deliver the I/O performance of up to 400 Hard Disk Drives (HDDs) turbo charging applications while eliminating bottlenecks and reducing power consumption. When compared with the previous generation system, the Sun Fire X4470 M2 Server doubles the memory to 1 TB and doubles the storage capacity to 3.6 TB, enhancing the system’s virtualization capabilities. In addition, an increase of 25% in processor cores and threads produces better performance at the same maximum CPU Thermal Design Power (TDP), making this server the densest and fastest performing in its class.

System management is simplified with Oracle Integrated Lights Out Manager (ILOM), which comes standard in every Sun Fire X4470 M2 server. Oracle ILOM centralizes system management locally or remotely to ease system configuration, software provisioning and updates providing a consistent interface across the entire x86 product line.
