Solaris Cluster is now supported with the latest in Intel technology: the Sun Fire x4170 (1U) and x4270/x4275 (2U) leading-edge x64 servers.
Included in the latest platform portfolio is the Sun Blade x6270 Intel Xeon 5500 Nehalem Constellation blade. The new servers support a slew of features, such as double the compute threads (16 Hyper-Threads) and more memory than before at 144GB.
With the addition of PCIe Gen 2, larger storage capacities can be achieved with double the I/O. This is all wrapped around a package that includes SAS, SATA, and flash-based Solid State Disks (SSD).
Combine this with Solaris and Solaris Cluster, and you've got a scalable architecture for multi-threaded applications with mission-critical capability.
Solaris Cluster configurations on x4170, x4270, and x4275, along with the x6270, are now supported with the following Solaris Cluster releases and configurations:
\* Solaris Solaris 10
\* Solaris Cluster Solaris Cluster 3.2
\* 8-Node support
\* 8-Node N+1
\* 8-Node Cluster Pairs \* 8 Node Pair + N
\* 8-Node Campus Cluster
