The Sun Server X4-2L, powered by the highest performing processors from the Intel Xeon processor E5-2600 v2 product family, is the ideal system for clustered databases and virtualized business applications. The system performance and power efficiency of Sun Server X4-2L are maximized with flash storage options that deliver high I/O performance and reduced energy consumption.

This server offers the flexibility of three chassis configurations. It offers superior scalability with up to 50.4 TB of disk storage or 13.6 TB of flash storage, and six PCIe 3.0 expansion slots for demanding enterprise business workloads. The four embedded 10GBase-T ports free up PCIe slots for additional network and storage connectivity. The Sun Server X4-2L supports up to 512 GB memory capacity with 32 GB load-reduced dual inline memory modules (DIMMs) achieving full 1,600 MHz, easily meeting the demands of current and future memory-intensive business workloads without compromising performance and power. Flash options deliver high performance with low latency and minimum CPU burden for accelerating application performance and eliminating I/O bottlenecks. In addition, with an increase of 50 percent in processor cores and threads, the Sun Server X4-2L produces up to 35 percent performance gains compared to the previous generation, making it the densest and best-performing server in its class.

With an advanced cooling system unique to Oracle, the Sun Server X4-2L achieves system 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.
