The Sun Fire X4270 M2 server, powered by up to two of the highest performing Intel Xeon Processor 5600 Series, is the ideal system for clustered databases and virtualized workloads. This server is available in two flexible chassis configurations and offers superior scalability with up to twenty-four TBs of storage for the most demanding cluster environments.

System performance and power efficiency are maximized with two flash storage options that offer more flash capacity than any other product on the market. These options include Oracle Sun Flash Accelerator F20 PCIe cards, and Solid State Drives (SSD). They deliver I/O performance equivalent to four hundred hard disk drives while reducing energy consumption by as much as eighty percent. The Sun Fire X4270 M2 server also has better power management with high efficiency power supplies and power capping capabilities.

System management is simplified with Oracle Integrated Lights Out Manager (ILOM) that comes standard in every Sun Fire X4270 M2 server. 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.
