PC Magazine Posts A Very Positive Review of Sun Fire X4150 Server


PC Magazine has posted a very positive review on the Sun Fire X4150 server as side bar to a round up review of other SMB-focused x64 servers.

The review praises the powerful features and functions that are included in such a small box -- stating that "Sun has kept its new Sun Fire in a 1U enclosure but has sacrificed absolutely nothing in the way of hardware or management features, building a box capable of competing with servers twice its size."
Try X4150 free for 60 days
Oliver Rist, the reviewer, goes on to list the CPU and driver components that are included on the system he tested, such as two quad-core Intel Xeons, 16GB of RAM and four 136GB 10,000-rpm SAS drives attached to an Adaptec RAID controller. He then positively highlights that the X4150 has "enough memory and disk space to run a heavy virtualization load in half of the space you'll find in most other server solutions ...[positioning] the Sun Fire as one of the greenest servers of 2008."

The review wraps up mentioning "... the Sun box would have blown the doors off anything else here" and Sun "deserves kudos for managing all this in a box this small."

PS: Had we known this opportunity in time, we would have sent a similarly configured and priced Sun Fire X4150 server that would have blown the doors off others anyway. ;-)

PPS: If you don't believe it, try it out free for 60 days via our Try & Buy program. You pick the configuation (and price range, we're sure you're going to buy it once you try... :-) )
