Sun Fire X4600 -- WOW baby!..
By staceyinfantino on Jun 22, 2007
With InfoWorld's "Best High-Performance Server" award for 2007 already
under it's belt -- the Sun Fire X4600 continues to impress.
Sun Fire X4600, the industry's first 4 RU modular x64 server, expandable from 2 to 8 processors is FAST -- but why take my word for it?
In a highly positive product evaluation put out by ServerWatch today, Charlie Schluting begins with: "This well-designed 4U system packs more power than we knew what to do with (really)." The review continues on to praise the X4600 in all areas, making exceptionally high marks in product design, product features and performance.
In this article Schluting briefly highlights how to consolidate servers onto the X4600, stating that two of these machines could run the critical apps in a modest sized infrastructure. He wraps up his review stating: "Saying this server is "fast" doesn't really do it justice. Speed isn't nearly as important as good design, redundancy, and close attention to detail from a seasoned server manufacturer. Combine that with extreme flexibility and speed, and you have the X4600."
Couldn't have said it better myself --
