Sun's New Systems based on OpenSPARC T2

Sun Microsystems today unveiled new servers that deliver advanced virtualization capabilities, increased system utilization and industry-leading energy efficiency. The Sun SPARC Enterprise T5120 and T5220 servers and Sun Blade T6320 modules are the most flexible, cost-effective systems for maximizing system utilization.

These systems are based on the UltraSPARC T2, with eight cores and 64 threads on one chip, integrated 10 GbE networking, crypto, and PCI-Express expansion based on Chip MultiThreading architecture.

Sun has released the detailed technical documentation on the UltraSPARC T2, including the UltraSPARC T2 Processor Programmer's Reference Manual and Microarchitecture Specification. This allows developers to gain an in-depth understanding of the architecture and allows porting of operating systems and application development.

Sun plans to make the UltraSPARC T2 microprocessor design openly available under the name, OpenSPARC T2. Right now the OpenSPARC T2 is available under an beta review program - This program provides early access to a limited number of hardware designers and tool developers to begin working with the state-of-the-art CMT processor with server on a chip functionality. We hope the program will catalyze the development of a community for OpenSPARC T2, speed the debugging process and leads to a better first release of the technology. Sign-up for the OpenSPARC T2 Beta Program now, it will be closing soon. Make sure you provide as much detail as possible in your beta request, its critical in the selection process.
