Oracle’s Sun Server X4-2 system, powered by the highest performing CPUs from the Intel Xeon processor E5-2600 v2 product family, offers unparalleled performance balanced with compute, memory, and I/O capabilities. It’s the most versatile two-socket server for enterprise data centers. It’s ideal for running middleware and enterprise business applications such as customer relationship management (CRM), enterprise resource planning (ERP), and supply chain management (SCM) in a virtualized environment. It’s also an excellent fit as a software development platform such as Oracle Solaris Studio, and a great choice for running web and IT infrastructure applications such as Oracle WebLogic middleware, Oracle WebCenter middleware, Oracle Enterprise Manager Ops Center, and Oracle Identity Manager.

This server is available in two flexible chassis configurations and offers superior scalability with up to 9.6 TB of disk storage or 3.2 TB of flash storage, and four PCIe 3.0 expansion slots for demanding enterprise business workloads. The four embedded 10GBase-T ports free PCIe slots for additional network and storage connectivity. The Sun Server X4-2 system supports up to 512 GB memory capacity with 32 GB load-reduced dual inline memory modules (DIMMs), achieving full 1,600 MHz bandwidth and can easily meet the demands of current and future memory-intensive business workloads without compromising performance and power. In addition, with an increase of 50 percent in processor cores and threads, the Sun Server X4-2 system produces up to 35 percent performance gains compared to its previous generation, making it the densest and best-performing server in its class.

With an advanced cooling system unique to Oracle, the Sun Server X4-2 system achieves efficiencies which result in power savings and maximum uptime. Oracle Advanced System Cooling utilizes remote temperature sensors for fan speed control, minimizing power consumption while keeping optimal temperatures inside the server. These remote temperature sensors have been designed into key areas of this server to ensure appropriate fan usage in zones which include power supply units, PCIe slots, Ethernet ports, exiting air, entering air, and thermal diodes. Oracle Advanced System Cooling helps reduce energy consumption in a way that other servers cannot.
