The Oracle Sun Server X3-2L generational improvements include up to 7.8 TB of flash storage to boost performance for clustered database applications and 2x I/O bandwidth with six PCIe 3.0 slots for demanding enterprise collaboration workloads. Another improvement is 10x the network bandwidth with the integration of four 10GbE ports, which reduces cabling, increases data throughput, and saves scarce PCIe slots for other peripherals. Due to its use of low voltage DDR3-1600 MHz memory DIMMs and 80 PLUS Platinum power supplies, this server is more energy efficient. In addition, an increase of 33 percent in processor cores and threads produces better performance in the same 2U form factor, making this server the densest and fastest performing in its class.

All Oracle servers ship with full function server management tools at no additional cost. Oracle Integrated Lights Out Manager (ILOM) utilizes industry-standard protocols to provide secure and comprehensive local and remote management. Oracle ILOM features also include power management and monitoring, fault detection and notification. The integrated Oracle System Assistant guides system administrators through rapid server deployment, firmware updates, hardware configuration and operating system installation with Oracle certified hardware drivers.
