Product Description
Oracle's Sun Netra X6270 M2 Server Module: Powered by Intel Xeon Processor L5638, the Oracle Sun Netra X6270 M2 Server Module helps customers scale their compute resources without adding complexity. Furthermore, the particular choice of L5638 provides a low power option that enables this blade to operate in the stringent NEBS operating environments, as well as providing a longer product life cycle than other members of the Intel Xeon family. The oracle Sun Netra X6270 Server Module leverages PCIe2 and SAS2 technologies to provide upto 282Gb/s of Ultra fast I/O bandwidth. With its 18 DIMM slots and four drive bays this two socket blade server offers streamlined management, enhanced performance, and energy efficiency to run the most demanding workloads including web, enterprise, database, grid, virtualization, and carrie-grade applications.
