Today Sun is introducing two new servers powered by AMD Opteron processors: the Sun Fire X4140 and Sun Fire X4440. Both servers are ideal for small and medium businesses, based on their affordable prices, extreme energy efficiency, performance and scalability.
The Sun Fire X4140 is a 1U server ideal for customers with large-scale HPC/grid computing and web infrastructure deployments involving hundreds, even thousands, of systems.
The Sun Fire X4440 is the industry's only 4-socket x64 AMD Opteron server in a 2U form factor, giving customers superior performance, scalability and connectivity, yet taking up half the space as systems from other vendors.
Its high density and scalability make it a great system for virtualization and consolidation. Both servers are designed for Quad-Core AMD Opteron processors, and can be seamlessly upgraded from dual-core.
Stay tuned for more news on the availability of quad-core systems!
